    I can find a lot of fault with Dawkins, but this is fucking ridiculous.

    Berkeley, the home of the free speech movement in the 60s, which originally had right and left wing political student groups uniting against censorship. It's pretty sad.

    This story has nothing to do with UC Berkeley.

    It is about a radio station which is in the city of Berkeley.

    I'd like to know who complained and what the specifics were before I'd claim political correctness.

    A specious complaint, couched in the right language, with hints of action, might have done the job.
