Air America Idiot Update

When I saw this on Memeorandum, something didn’t feel right about the tale; If Rhodes had been assaulted on the the corner of 39th and Park Ave. on Sunday night, it would have led every media outlet in the city Monday morning. Local news channels would have been staked out at the emergency room, her apartment building, the full bore, wall to wall circus would have gone into effect.

Guess why there was no media coverage?
Air America host Randi Rhodes wasn’t mugged

Air America radio host Randi Rhodes is temporarily off the air, but claims she was brutally attacked near her Manhattan apartment are bogus, her lawyer and a police source said today.

Fellow host Jon Elliott claimed on the liberal radio network that Rhodes had been mugged while walking her dog, Simon, on Sunday night. Elliot, who said Rhodes lost several teeth in the attack, waxed about a possible conspiracy.

“Is this an attempt by the right-wing, hate machine to silence one of our own?” he asked on the air, according to Talking Radio, a blog. “Are we threatening them? Are they afraid that we’re winning? Are they trying to silence intimidate us?”

A police source said Rhodes never filed a report and never claimed to be the victim of a mugging. Cops from Manhattan’s 17th Precinct called her attorney, who told them Rhodes was not a victim of a crime, the source said.

Rhodes’ lawyer told the Daily News she was injured in a fall while walking her dog. He said she’s not sure what happened, and only knows that she fell down and is in a lot of pain. The lawyer said Rhodes expects to be back on the air Thursday. He stressed there is no indication she was targeted or that she was the victim of a “hate crime.”

So, from reading what her lawyer is saying, let me offer this opinion of what happened: she was shitface drunk and pulled a faceplant of epic proportions when she got tangled up in the dog’s leash. Rhodes doesn’t know what happened; we professional imbibers call that “a blackout.”

My theory has a hella better chance of being true than the blatant lie her AAR cohort hoisted on Air Idiot’s airwaves.
