For WCBM radio talk show host Les Kinsolving, the acts of war may have brought out the worst. At a White House news conference aired on C-SPAN, Kinsolving asked press secretary Ari Fleischer a question that left the implication Radio One owner Cathy Hughes should have her Federal Communications Commission license revoked or that she should be jailed.

The disc jockey on Baltimore's "92-Q" never saw the shot coming.He figured he'd be solid with the boss when he announced on the air that he wouldn't repeat a few songs in that afternoon's show because the lyrics were vulgar.

After all, wasn't station owner Cathy Hughes always talking about doing good for the community?Somebody needed to take the young man aside and educate him about Cathy Hughes.
