…They’re taking calls now, and my only hope is that things improve. The first caller just called Donohue a “professional whiner”. Donohue just repeated his claim that he doesn’t ask for people to be fired. BULL SHIT. Do Lionel’s producers not have Google? I found those links in two fucking seconds. What’s Lionel’s excuse? Donohue just also made flatly homophobic and racist statements. And Lionel? Nothing but a shameless defense for his bigoted guest. This is, I can honestly say, Air America’s worst day.
I’ve long been unimpressed with Air America generally anyway, but this really does sound like new depths have been plumbed.
I mean, seriously:
That’s a totally typical press release issued by Bill Donohue, but Air America’s letting him spew uncontested his tired horseshit that he doesn’t call for people to be fired?! Yeah, when they’re conservative Catholic men who have had an “inappropriate sexual relationship” with an 18-year-old maybe. But when they’re feminist women, all bets are off.
Jebus, Air America. Just go away already.
