CAIR Complains About Handel Bit
January 27, 2006 at 6:23 AM (PT)
The COUNCIL ON AMERICAN-ISLAMIC RELATIONS is once again demanding that a radio host apologize for on-air comments, this time CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KFI-A/LOS ANGELES morning man BILL HANDEL, who did a segment on the recent deadly stampede during the annual Muslim pilgrimage.
363 were killed and hundreds injured at the yearly stoning ritual; HANDEL imagined a helicopter traffic report by "MAHMOUD NOLAN, Hajj In the Sky" (a parody of the station's MIKE NOLAN, "KFI in the Sky"). CAIR wants KFI to reprimand HANDEL for the bit.
