World Soccer Daily has been canceled because of Liverpool hate

The radio show World Soccer Daily has been canceled because of a comment made by Steven Cohen (host) about the Hillsborough disaster in which 96 Liverpool Fans died. Liverpool FC and many Liverpool fans and supporters clubs boycotted the radio show. But after some time death threats and hate mail started flowing in to World Soccer Daily. Today, August 21st, 2009 the last show took place for only one reason, hate. Steven Cohen used his right of free speech to release an opinion, and although we all have the right to disagree, none of us have the right to send death threats because of an opinion.
Eventually even the children and family of the hosts were all contacted with death threats personally, but after a while Liverpool FC got involved, they said that they supported the down-bringing of the show.
It is a said day for not only the fans of World Soccer Daily but also soccer in North America, because World Soccer Daily WAS the only national Soccer show.

It is a sad day for media, journalism, freedom of speech and most of all soccer, may Steven Cohen and Kenny Hassan and all people affiliated not suffer because of these terrible hooligans and this terrible club called Liverpool FC.
