Years ago as a kid I recall Stern's rise to fame. We all thought he was funny..and he was. Until of course the public got used to him and he joined humanity, got the big studio, etc.
Business as usual came to pass.
I recall that some of his legions of agitators..no that would be if they were doing something useful like activism. Irritators is more like it. Small petty annoyances really.
But I recall constant "Howard Stern for president" prank calls to various call in shows.
I recall they liked to pick on Mother Angelica alot. Perhaps due to her heavy religious content...moreso I suspect its becuz NO ONE likes a woman in a matriarchal role. Not in that crowd especially and not a Catholic.
Why was she so focused on constantly? Yes, she was annoying and pushy but I gotta admire her still going after a stroke...not becuz of what she beleived in but how dedicated she was.
And why can't you jsut turn the damn channel if you dont like it then? Hmmmm.
Well, it's a free country so you cant just censor her (as Stern made a large part of his career acting like a martyr for: censorship), so yer gonna have to do something else..
like target her.

This went on for years. And looking at it now I see it for what it is..and that organized harassment and stalking comes in various forms and has various uses. Especially when portrayed as entertainment.
