Dodging the whole Carton thing, and will not answer any Carton questions.
Not surprising at all

His ratings probably hit an all time high for about 2 minutes  
Knineteen : 9/6/2017 1:09 pm : link
But his reaction isn't surprising.

He's not dodging it. WFAN has muzzled everyone for the time being.
Dodging?  
TyreeHelmet : 9/6/2017 1:10 pm : link
This is a major legal case. I'm sure the very higher ups at CBS made a strict edict not to discuss it. Not exactly dodging it...
not dodging it all per say  
micky : 9/6/2017 1:11 pm : link
just made aware of it and that the company (wfan) put out a statement on it..they don't want their employees talk about it and he will not be addressing or answering anything on the subject..period..and onto his show
I'd much rather discuss Carton than

I'll bet WFAN's legal department was adamant about that. A slip up, even an innocent one, could get expensive.
By dodging,  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 9/6/2017 1:13 pm : link
I mean he is just not going to speak about it because WFAN has put out a statement.

Everyone thought he would gloat and rip Carton apart, but he's can't say anything.

Agree - no way he hasnt been instructed not to comment. Especially if CBS is "cooperating" - they've prob been subpoenaed.
This is such a season finale cliffhanger

WFAN is as close to a real-life scripted HBO show as you'll find.
If you didn't lose money b/c of Carton  
allstarjim : 9/6/2017 1:41 pm : link
I don't know why anyone would give a rip anyway. There's really not much to talk about anyway. He'll have his day in court.
Not Dodging  
Samiam : 9/6/2017 2:17 pm : link
first, he probably doesn't care enough to comment. He wouldn't talk Carton when Carton tried to get into a pissing match with him if only for ratings. Second, he probably doesn't any more than what was made public which isn't that much. What's he going to add about the specific case?
Here's the story.............

Gets much ridicule here. I ve never understood how a guy with his success can be so poorly regarded by some.

But the thing about Mike is he has never paid any attention to his critics. he deals with them in the most effective manner,he ignores them

I read this morning how some couldn't wait for his show so he could rip Carton. I never for one second thought he would spend anytime on the issue.
Why not put this in the Carton thread?

He isn't dodging it  
dpinzow : 9/6/2017 3:40 pm : link
The FBI, law enforcement, etc. didn't want anyone who knows Carton to talk about it. You never know, Mike and other WFAN employees could be called as witnesses at trial
It really speaks to the ignorance of some people  
Knineteen : 9/6/2017 3:42 pm : link
thinking Francesa was going to gloat or rip Carton on air.

When the fuck has Mike EVER done that?!
He always dismissed criticism from other shows and networks.
The only time he addresses them is when they blatantly lie about something.

Thank you for this Simms11!! I had no friggin' idea this was going on, too buried in Irma and start of soccer season, I guess.

Does this mean Carton has been pulled from his spot with Boomer? Haven't been listening to radio either. If so, YOOHOO, can't stand the voice, the schtick, the arrogance, or the man behind it all.

Can you imagine if the roles were reversed? Carton would be all over Mike. Carton had a clock set up counting down to Mikes last day. Turns out Mike will outlast him...

And it's that idiocy that makes him appealing to listeners.
