Air Deadbeat Meltdown: Randi Rhodes Suspended

I know what you are saying “Air America is still on the air? No, seriously, really? Well smack my bottom and call me Betty!”

New York – Air America has suspended on-air host Randi Rhodes for making inappropriate statements about prominent figures, including Senator Hillary Clinton, at a recent public appearance on behalf of Air America in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.

“Air America encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our Hosts,” said chair Charlie Kireker.

What was at issue? The Radio Equalizer reports

In a rant so salty it could make a sailor blush, Rhodes repeatedly called Hillary a “big f***ing whore”, to both cheers and jeers from the audience. The afternoon drive talker was there on behalf of Air America at an event sponsored by the local affiliate.

In addition, Rhodes referred to former Democrat vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro as “David Duke in drag”.

Brian Maloney also has video of the appearence.

    When I read the story, I was laughing when the incident occurred and when Randi Rhodes got smacked. The incident happened March 22nd and she just got suspended now, 2 weeks after the fact. Because it took that long for more than 20 people to have heard about what she did! HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Tell me again why Air America continues to broadcast?
