Howard Stern Gets Slammed By Comic!

It's not all ugly, mind you.

But in the breezily readable new memoir from comic Pat Cooper called How Dare You Say How Dare Me?, the Italian firebrand Cooper -- who was a mouthy regular on the Stern show -- has this to say:

"I really like Howard. I always have.

"But Howard went to the Hamptons.

"Howard remarried and went A-list.

"Howard's real audience is riding around in cars and trucks and cabs listening to AM/FM for what Howard pays his interns.

"They're not subscribing to a satellite company to get 120 channels.

"Howard left his real audience in traffic."

And I guess they're stuck there!

Concludes the non-punch-holding Cooper, Howard actually left his audience very gradually.

Says he:

"The crowns worn by the King of all Media came off one jewel at a time."

Ouch. That's gotta hurt!

- It is with mixed emotions that this review is posted. It is posted not from a need to prove or defend the truth but rather as an obligation to heighten the awareness of those readers who may innocently be unaware.

- For many years Pat Cooper has used his family as a source of material for his act. It publicly became acceptable for him in this context to embellish the truth as a source of entertainment for his audience. However, when one decides to write a memoir it is supposed to be an accurate account of life experiences. It is necessary that readers be made aware that throughout the book the author presents many misconceptions with respect to his earlier family relationships and experiences. As one who lived through many of the experiences, I would have to say that Pat Cooper's book, How Dare You Say How Dare Me, presents its readers with a perspective that is very much from the truth. Somehow in his memoir, Pat Cooper has chosen to eliminate some very significant events that should have been recounted in order for the reader to see what truly makes him "tick." The authors' use of sensationalism throughout the book is used as a tool to entice the reader's interest and curiosity. Perhaps the authors would like to add the following reflection as an epilogue to insure the memoir is presented with more accuracy.

- It was truly an unfortunate experience that both Michael and his biological sister lived through. The impact of the experience has affected both of their lives in different ways. Sometimes the true reason as to why things happen is clouded by what we imagine they could have been. Through the years, and by being a mother, I have come to the realization that it would be impossible for anyone to even begin to try to rationalize the cowardice actions of any man, under any circumstances, who could turn away from his biological children and then in turn ADOPT another. I have rather learned that it was necessary to alter my expectations in order to truly accept and understand the emotional limitations and hypocritical actions of this man.

- In the words of Martin Luther King; "the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." Through the years, this man has consistently demonstrated that for whatever reason, he was only capable of achieving the emotional ability to stand as a dark shadow in our lives. I am sadly comforted in a sense to have come to accept that to have had a father who was filled with such anger and negative energy in my life would have probably been more toxic. It is ironic that through it all the one thing that we both learned from an absent father and a very present and loving mother and grandmother was the true blessings of a family. It is really a shame for him that he was not only unwilling to share in all our wonderful memories and accomplishments, but also missed out on all the genuine love that truly bonds OUR FAMILY together. These are things WE will always have, as they are TRUTHS within our heart. There is NOTHING that can take them away... not even the DECEPTIVE WORDS IN HIS BOOK. A person can only hide behind an image for so long. Eventually, in time, the truth somehow always manages to shine through. Michael Caputo's book, "Dear Pat Cooper," is the ONLY one that has helped to make that happen. I know... I was there, too!

- So to the co-authors of Pat Cooper's book and one of their uninformed wife, (the wife who has since removed her own review from Amazon in order to eliminate the TRUTHFUL AND UNFAVORABLE comments that followed) and to ANYONE else who feels compelled to conjecture on what they perceive as being truth, since you were NOT there you have no basis to offer any opinion. Your perceptions are clearly only based on the false image that Pat Cooper has portrayed to you through the years. Therefore, please do not be so bold and arrogant as to make suggestions as to offering this man unconditional love. Sadly, the time for that has long passed and it was something Pat Cooper should have offered his children and family many years ago. No matter how loud he bellows trying to convince himself and the world otherwise... the truth is... HE NEVER TRIED TO BE OUR FATHER. He instead substituted by ADOPTING another child and harbored resentment for those who tried to help him acknowledge his responsibilities as a father to his two biological children. I guess that was easier.... to be a coward and turn away. Perhaps maybe these actions were not totally generated by him but rather from the fear, possessiveness and insecurity harbored by his new wife, purchased daughter, and new family. This is something I will neither ever know, nor does it have any significance in justifying any of his prior actions.

- However, there is one thing I do know and it is that; Children may not always remember what you said, but they will always remember the way you made them feel. The feelings that this man has left us with are not those of anger, but rather pity. It is so pitiful that Pat Cooper has invested so much energy in trying to blame others and make excuses for all of his poor choices, that sadly his entire life has passed by without knowing and experiencing the love of both his beautiful biological children and family. It is incomprehensible to even begin to imagine how a SON could lack compassion and refuse to reconcile with his own loving MOTHER. It is even more pitiful that his egocentrical personality has blinded him to be able to see or acknowledge that through the years it wasn't only all about him and his feelings. He sadly doesn't even realize that his constant "saga" of personal persecution, which he continually reveals throughout the book consistently, portrays him as an insensitive, selfish and lonely sole. It seems that Pat Cooper is always throwing a perpetual tantrum about things that didn't go his way. He appears to be a man who was never happy in either his personal or professional life. It is really quite sad that at this point in his life he still has a need to publicly justify his actions and ridicule his family. Perhaps maybe he still yearns to somehow be connected and this is unfortunately the only way he knows how. I guess it is true that "nothing is more wretched than the mind of a man conscious of guilt". It's quite ironic that even though he dismissed himself from any part of my life, I still, in a sense; somehow feel sorry for the man. As I have said; I have learned to accept his emotional limitations, but realistically I will always be disheartened by all the anger and resentment he still possesses about two innocent children and a wonderful loving mother he never had the courage or took the time to know. I am thoroughly relieved that both his biological children, Michael and Louise are VOID of this gene!!

Pat is right. Allison, Howard's first wife, dumped him and in return he marries Beth, a blond bimbo C-list model who hangs all over him like lint and get book deals and TV spots.  Howard's show is now on autopilot while everyone kisses his butt.  The show has dull guests and he seems to have little drive anymore.  Robin should come out of the closet already and shock him.  If Howard retired then Beth the Bimbo would divorce him.

Howard is not A-list. Some A-listers like him but he doesn't qualify as an A-lister.  Especially now that his show is horrible.

Guess what happens when people become successful in show business?  Something Pat Cooper will never know.  90 years old and doing comedy shows for dog food--Mr. Cooper hasn't owned a dog in decades.  Cooper was on the Stern Show a couple of years ago, and it was a flat appearance.  The only reason this geriatric hack is lashing out is because he can't get booked again on the Stern Show.  Stern's audience is whoever listens to him.  Whether they be tens of millions on terrestrial radio, or a couple of million on satellite.  Sour grapes, Mr. "Cooper."

Howard is much more interested in photo finishes and triple crown stakes since he married a thoroughbred

Was a huge Stern fan, but can't even listen anymore. Yeah he's only 3 days a week, takes alot of vacation, but show is just BORING! He has avoided so many questions on air about Artie it's disrespectful. To all the sheep that still listen, cancel your subscription. Alot of us have...join that revalution.

Pat's been talking crap about Stern forever. He's a bitter old washed up comic who never made it. The only reason I know his name is because of Howard Stern. And more people might continue to know his name if he wasn't so self-destructive. Oh..and interns don't get paid.

Stern fans are like republicans Ignoring the facts

Stern has a history of ignoring his "bros" drug problems.  Kinison, Artie and KC Armstrong are just a few.  Instead of help Howard offered them air time to expose themselves.

What his kids do is like the deepest, darkest secret although I remember hearing the drug rumor years ago and it would make sense. Howard has always surrounded himself with very bright, very talented addicts. I'm sure like a lot of people, addiction is a recurring theme in his life.

Maybe that's why he was extra touchy about his daughter being brought up. But Cooper was saying Kinison's coke problem was bad whereas  Stern allegedly brushed it off.

Isn't one of Stern's daughters a drug addict? Stern's first wife appeared on the cover of Town and Country for being a big donor to the zoo & shortly after that they announced the divorce.

Once Howard moved to Sirius, he lost his edge because everything's allowed. The whole fun of Howard was in the headline he made braking FCC rules.

The backstory: Cooper and Stern once discussed crazed comic Sam Kinison. Stern sort of defended him. Cooper then said, "I hope your daughter marries him." For Stern, that crossed the line and he cooled to Cooper.

This even though Cooper was once ambushed on the Stern show with calls from his angry daughter and son. Cooper admits he liked that, though, because America got to get a load of their screwed up agendas.

Well, he isn't really lashing out. Most of the book's writeup of Howard is positive. And as the above blog says, he says "I like him. I always have."

Interns get college credit otherwise they would have to be paid. All of Sirius' interns, not just Stern's slaves get college credit and no cash.

Pat knows interns don't get paid. That was exactly his point.

Im not a Pat Cooper fan but what he's saying carries alot of truth.3 day work weeks and commercial after commercial mixed with ridiculous amounts of holidays have turned Howards so called revolution into a joke.How many of his blue collar fans have left since his transformation into A list Hamptons Howie?? Im guessing alot!

None of his daughters are drug addicts.  No idea where you're getting that from.

I love the idea of someone crossing a line with Howard Stern. Has any of you ever seen one of his TV shows? I guess he can dish it out, but....

However his oldest daughter DID overdose and had to be rushed to the hospital right before his move to Sirius.
