Air America Suspends Rhodes

AIR AMERICA RADIO says that it has suspended RANDI RHODES for "making inappropriate statements about prominent figures, including Sen. HILLARY CLINTON" at a recent appearance for the network in SAN FRANCISCO sponsored by CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KKGN-A.
"AIR AMERICA encourages strong opinions about public affairs but does not condone such abusive, ad hominem language by our hosts," said Chairman CHARLIE KIREKER. The network did not indicate what RHODES said (although a video making the rounds of the Internet show her calling GERALDINE FERRARO "such a f--king whore" and HILLARY CLINTON "such a big f--king whore too"), nor did it say how long RHODES would be off the air.
