...Because they will. 

Adam Corolla, formerly of The Man Show and Loveline, now churns out one of the best, funniest, podcasts in the world.  Every episode is downloaded by millions of people all over the world, and he's set the bar for what the format can do. Recently, he tried to get his friend and Loveline co-host Dr. Drew Pinsky to call in to the show and discuss pneumonia.

It didn't happen, because Pinsky was afraid his career would be damaged if he picked up the phone. 

Dr. Drew recently lost his CNN show, and the timing of his firing was such that it appeared the cancellation had something to do with the fact that he'd questioned Hillary Clinton's health.  Hillary hadn't collapsed yet, so CNN was still doing its best to claim that she was the very model of youth and vigor. Anyone who thought otherwise was obviously some kind of conspiracy kook.

That's when Pinsky said he was “gravely concerned not just about her health, but her health care.” According to various reports, the CNN mafia tried to force Pinsky to retract his statement. He refused, and his show was cancelled just one week later.

...And, as we all know, Dr. Drew turned out to be 100% correct.

That brings us to Adam Corolla's show.  Colrolla discussed Pinsky's refusal to appear, the hypocrisy of left-wing hand-wringing, and the chilling effect of a war on disagreement:

You can listen to the whole clip below. Beware the saucy language!

“Now he can come on and tell you that Donald Trump had a baby’s arm growing out of his asshole, no problemo. ..And he would not have difficulty, potentially, finding work. But in his mind, with a couple of these deals pending, not a good idea as a physician to speak about one of the candidates - who probably will become the president - and her medical condition the day after a huge story. Not going to risk it.

 ...Here’s the New World Order — it may exist, it may not exist — but whether it actually exists or doesn’t exist in Drew’s mind he cannot come on this podcast and speak about Hillary Clinton even in a hypothetical way.”

In other words, the Clinton machine talks a good game about a love of free speech and a belief that 'dissent is the highest form of patriotism,' but it sets phasers on kill if you dare say anything that might shake their queen out of her comfy chair.

Bottom line? This probably isn't a "New World Order" level conspiracy, but we all know it's probably true. I'm not suggesting Pinsky is some kind of red state conservative, but there have been enough tales of how conservatives are treated in the entertainment industry to suggest that, yes; Dr. Drew's CNN gig was probably damaged by his "Hillary's health" comments. There's also a good chance that continuing down that path would hurt him in the future.
