Have you noticed that Howard Stern is different now?
The COVID pandemic has really changed him. He used to be edgy and defended concepts like freedom of speech. Now he is afraid to leave his Long Island mansion and he is constantly criticizing people who haven’t gotten the COVID vaccine.
Tucker Carlson called him out during a monologue this week.

Tucker Carlson declares war on Howard Stern over Covid-19 concerns
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has called radio personality Howard Stern a “coward” for sharing his concerns about Covid-19.
The controversial opinion host spent part of Thursday’sTucker Carlson Tonight bashing Stern for “amplifying his fears” about the pandemic and “attacking anybody else who has decided to live life as a free person”.
Stern has aggressively criticised those refusing to get vaccinated, saying in September that the jabs should be made mandatory so that he can “get out of the house already”.
“F*** their freedom,” he said, prompting Carlson to say that Stern was “hiding in his basement”.
The Fox News host also took issue with Stern saying that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers should be forced out of the NFL after not getting vaccinated but suggesting that he had. And Carlson criticised Stern for going after Oprah Winfrey after she hosted dinner parties during the pandemic.
Earlier this week, Stern garnered attention for suggesting that the unvaccinated should be denied medical care, a comment that was also skewered by Carlson…
Carlson said Stern had been “sticking it to the man” by fighting for free speech and standing up against government censorship.
“Maybe it was coronavirus that broke him, maybe it was hormonal changes from middle age, he is now a coward. His broadcast is now about cowardice,” Carlson said. “Amplifying his fears about corona over the air, and attacking, more precisely, attacking anybody else who has decided to live life as a free person.”

Tucker has a point here. Howard Stern is definitely not the same man he once was.
