Radio talk show host Michael Reagan's weak, perfunctory and disingenuous "apology" to Mark Dice for encouraging the activist be murdered for sending 9/11 truth material to U.S. troops only further necessitates the case for legal action to be taken in order to end the spiraling cycle of Neo-Con intimidation and smear.
Furthermore, it now appears that Radio America representatives have failed to inform the President of Radio America about Reagan's comments in an attempt to protect him from any potential discipline.
According to Mark Dice's website, "Radio America has said that they will NOT fire Reagan for his comments. The communications director refused to answer whether the president of the company was aware of Reagan's comments, leading us to believe that they are keeping this information from him, in order to protect Reagan."
Had Reagan prostrated himself and vigorously displayed remorse for his disgusting comments during the interview with Dice yesterday then Dice may have considered taking the high road, but the fact that Reagan still views his statements as no more obscene that Mark Dice's efforts to inform the soldiers underscores the fact that further action needs to be taken.

You won't have heard about it in the corporate media so we'll happily reprint Reagan's original statement once again.
Last week on his nationally syndicated show, Reagan stated, "We ought to find the people who are doing this, take them out and shoot them. Really. You take them out, they are traitors to this country, and shoot them. You have a problem with that? Deal with it. You shoot them. You call them traitors, that’s what they are, and you shoot them dead. I’ll pay for the bullets.”
“How about you take Mark Dice out and put him in the middle of a firing range. Tie him to a post, don’t blindfold him, let it rip and have some fun with Mark Dice," Reagan added.
Mark Dice's decision to report the death threat to the FBI and pursue an FCC investigation of Reagan led to the talk show host offering his "apology" yesterday before scurrying out of the country.
In reality, the interview with Dice was merely exploited by Reagan as an opportunity to make himself appear as the victim while hardly allowing Dice to get a word in.

Isn't it ironic that after 19 minutes of Reagan continually fading down and interrupting Dice, he has the gall to claim, "You're talking over me!"
In response to Dice's analogy of what would happen if a left-wing radio host called for the "unequivocal tracking down and murder" of an individual, Reagan claimed that Mike Malloy and Randy Rhodes had called for the murder of George Bush - a complete lie and another probable case of slander in and of itself.
The interview was pre-recorded and so Dice's most powerful statements were most likely edited out. There is a notable piece of editing when Dice questions Reagan's claim that he is still in the country despite telling Dice in an earlier private conversation that he was imminently leaving the country. During this sequence, Dice is completely cut off while Reagan talks over him.
Reagan invoked death threats against his father Ronald Reagan, who died four years ago, and also calls made to his cellphone by "your people" as an excuse to downplay the serious nature of his comments.
The only time when Reagan shut his mouth completely was when Dice read out California's Penal Code 422, which clearly illustrates that Reagan's comments fit the bill for terroristic threats.
Reagan's macabre obsession with violent murder was no more evident than in an August 2006 radio segment when he encouraged Arab babies in the Middle East be blown up by shoving "a grenade up their butts," while also stating that "there'll be peace when everybody in the Middle East is dead."
Reagan's foul, Hitlerian, racist and criminal statements can no longer be defined as free speech. When a national talk show host publicly calls for killing babies and puts out a contract on someone's life with 4 million people listening, action must be swift and severe.
At the very least, Reagan should be fired and never allowed to broadcast again. Don Imus was fired for much less and became the subject of national media obsession, yet not one mainstream news outlet has reported on Reagan's disgraceful comments.
Once again it is up to us, the alternative media and truth activists, to pressure the FCC into investigating Reagan by filing a report and kicking this cretin off the airwaves for good.
