Boner Candidate #1: RADIO SCUM

An Apopka radio personality has been kept off the air today for Facebook remarks implying that Pulse shooting victims were sexual deviants and their deaths should not be covered sympathetically in the media. “Watch now as the news stations hang around at another homosexual hang out as if we’re supposed to feel sorry for sexual deviancy,” wrote Jim Turner, who hosts an afternoon community talk show on AM station 1520 WBZW, according to a screenshot of the post. Another post by Turner called Pulse “some sorry bar” and compared the death toll in Sunday’s shooting to what he claims are the number of abortions performed daily. Turner’s Facebook account has been deleted since the comments were posted. Bill Files, general manager of the Altamonte Springs-based station that carries Turner’s show, said he and his company reject the comments made on the radio host’s personal Facebook page.

From Paul Rolly in SL Tribune: Speaking of Facebook • Shortly after the terrorist attack in Orlando, Fla., here’s what a Utah Republican official posted on his Facebook page: “Note to self: Avoid gay dance club next week.” That was from Doran L. Barton, a member of the Salt Lake County GOP’s executive committee and the county’s chairman for Senate District 13, which spans three counties and has a district leader from each county. The senator for that district is Mark Madsen, R-Saratoga Springs, one of the Legislature’s fiercest gun advocates who pushed for a holiday to honor gun manufacturer John Browning.
