					Spreaker Pulls Down Hate Speech by Gay-Bashing Radio Host Caiden Cowger

Reaffirms its principle about free speech in the web community.

San Francisco, CA, June 09, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Spreaker released the following statement today
regarding their decision, along with YouTube's, to pull down content from Caiden Cowger, a
conservative radio host best-known for spewing anti-gay, hate speech.

Quote, attributable to Spreaker CEO, Francesco Baschieri:

“While we not only support free speech, we help it find its way to more people faster and easier with our
service that is the audio equivalent of YouTube, but like them, we cannot and will not condone hate
speech. Consequently, we have pulled down audio content from Caiden Cowgar, whose recent
gay-bashing clearly crosses the line from free -- to hate -- speech.”

Spreaker, dubbed “Twitter for audio” by TechCrunch, is a mobile and web-based service that makes it
easy to spread audio across social networks.
