MD Host To Apologize For Hitler Comment
February 22, 2006 at 6:38 AM (PT)
CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WFMD-A/FREDERICk, MD Sales Manager and "FREDERICK'S FORUM" host BLAINE YOUNG will apologize for likening a local politician to ADOLF HITLER.
On SATURDAY's show, YOUNG said FREDERICK COUNTY Commission President LENNIE THOMPSON's blaming developers for the county's problems was "no different than what, you know, Hitler did with the Jews. The scapegoat in this county is the developer." THOMPSON reacted to the comments by calling YOUNG an "unmitigated liar" and threatening to sue for defamation unless CLEAR CHANNEL donates $10,000. to the U.S. HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM.
YOUNG tells AP that he will apologize on SATURDAY's show.
