Why wont Howard Stern air past Trump interviews?


Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he was a "victim of one of the great political smear campaigns" while addressing a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina on Friday.

Howard Stern doesn't plan to air old interviews with Donald Trump featuring the now Republican presidential candidate discussing his sexual exploits.

The talk show host says he wouldn't dig into his archives because "it would be a betrayal to any of our guests if I sat there and played them now (when) people are attacking him.''

Stern noted on his SiriusXM show Monday that the conversations were broadcast and not "done in private like the Billy Bush tapes.''

In past interviews with the shock jock, Trump has given Stern permission to call daughter Ivanka Trump a "piece of (expletive)," boasted about walking in on undressed contestants at his beauty pageants, bragged that he could have had sex with Diana, princess of Wales, and admitted to cheating on ex-wife Ivana Trump.

On Monday (local time) NBC News announced that they had fired Today show host Bush, who was caught on tape in a vulgar conversation about women with the Republican presidential nominee before an Access Hollywood appearance.

Bush was suspended at the morning show two days after contents of the 2005 tape were reported on October 7 NBC and Bush's representatives had been negotiating terms of his exit before Monday's announcement.

On the tape, Bush is heard laughing as Trump talks about fame enabling him to grope and try to have sex with women not his wife.
