Broadcasting contempt

A Nevada radio station manager has begun distributing bumper stickers reading “Anybody But Hillary.”

KGVM, an FM station that dubs itself “adult contemporary,” broadcasts from Gardnerville and is heard clearly in Reno. The station is offering the bumper stickers to its listeners.

Jerry Evans, who came up with the idea, said that when he heard about Sen. Clinton’s announcement of presidential candidacy Sunday he recalled seeing such bumper stickers somewhere and immediately placed an order for similar stickers bearing the station’s logo.

“I have actually seen such bumper stickers, and within an hour of hearing of her announcement, I decided to put our brand on it,” Evans said. Indeed, the political message is dwarfed by the station’s logo on the stickers.

Evans declined to be specific about his hostility to Clinton.

“I don’t even bother trying to explain it to people,” he said. “If they’ve been paying attention within the last 10 years, they will know why. The people that want it [the bumper sticker] will understand it.”

In a later e-mail message, he added, “If you think this is wrong, or you don’t agree, my explanation would never convince you otherwise or change your mind.”
