Spocko is a blogger from San Fransisco who was appalled at what he was hearing on the radio station KSFO, owned by ABC. The station had been broadcasting what Spocko described as “violent rhetoric,” and Spocko persuaded several advertisers to pull their support of the station. His blog was later served with a “cease and disist” order from ABC. On this clip of Charlottesville–Right Now! with Coy Barefoot, Spocko explains his experiences with KSFO and what the Electronic Frontier Foundation has done to help him deal with the legal side of the controversy.

Later on, Jamison Foser of Media Matters for America joins the discussion. Foser explains how anyone can call attention to this type of speech on the radio – both to management and to the advertisers who pay for it.
