Video: Howard Stern Sidekick Hijacks Gloria Allred's Press Conference

| by Michael Allen

Rachel Maddow began her coverage of the Gloria Allred-Sharon Bialek press conference today with a strange pre-conference hijacking by Howard Stern personality Benji Bronk, who insisted on shilling for a pop star named Elisa Jordana. Bronk had done a similar routine when he hijacked Anthony Weiner's final press conference.

 “Maybe,” Maddow contended, “this is just the greatest long-running, gross-out, genius performance art satire radio spectacle of my generation, The Howard Stern Show, being jealous that another performance art sensation (Herman Cain) is hitting that Howard Stern sweet spot that is between horrifying and compelling.”
