    Talk radio hosts get an earful at Occupy L.A. encampment

    John and Ken, who have been mocking the movement on their conservative radio show, receive a mixed response by demonstrators at City Hall.

    The show was the subject of controversy recently when the hosts read on the air the mobile and office phone numbers of a local immigrant rights activist. The activist reported receiving hundreds of hate-filled phone calls as a result, prompting a boycott launched by the National Hispanic Media Coalition.

    General Motors on Wednesday became the latest company to pull ads from the show in support of the boycott.

    During a commercial break Thursday, a protester in a shirt that read "No human is illegal" approached the radio personalities. He was Rudy Pisani, an 83-year-old Korean War veteran.

    "Have you served your country?" Pisani asked angrily.

    Kobylt said he had, by paying taxes.
