Robin broke the news to Howard that the Howard 100 News team contacted the jewelry store that Howard bought Beth's Valentine's Day presents from and got the exact prices of the necklace and ring that he bought for her - even after he specifically asked Lisa G. not to. Howard said that he wanted to take back the autonomy from the news department. He complained that they're up his ass every 5 minutes. Howard's program director, Tim Sabean, said that he'd take care of it for him. Artie said that he better not be followed around during March Madness or someone will get hurt. Howard said that there are certain things that he doesn't want out there, but he's not hiding anything. He wondered what was next, an evaluation of his tax returns or an interview with his psychiatrist? Howard explained that he's a pretty open guy, but he's still a private person. Robin said she was shocked and felt embarrassed even just having heard the story on the news. Tim agreed and said that there are just some things that a person wants to keep private in their lives. Lisa G. came into the studio to defend the decision to do the story, saying that the tone of Howard's voice was more like "I know you're going call, but don't you do that…" adding that the store shouldn't have blabbed to them. Howard said that, because they're called the Howard 100 News, the store probably thought that the news team had his endorsement so they gave them the information readily. Liz Aiello, the Howard 100 News Director, called in and apologized to Howard and said that in hindsight, the decision to run the story was wrong. She felt a twinge in her gut that maybe they shouldn't do the story, but then thought about how Howard always brags about how he's given them autonomy and they always use it to investigate him. Robin agreed and said that Howard is sending mixed signals to the news team. Howard agreed but said that basically, he just wants to keep some things private. After a break, a caller told Howard that he has become his own FCC now and thought he was being a hypocrite. Howard put the guy in his place by explaining that he does not censor the show, rather he chooses what to air on his own show based on his years of experience as an entertainer. On the other hand, when the FCC censors something, they do so by imposing their own moral values on the pulic airwaves.
