Randi Rhodes got more attention for something she didn't do off-air than she ever got on-air as an Air America personality. First, she was mugged. Cue up liberal outrage, shock and condemnation of, you guessed it, conservative Nazi brownshirt bastards.
Then, she wasn't mugged. On the conservative side, eyes were rolled: just another day in the conservative blogosphere. Where you're guilty of a "jihad" and "smearing" a kid when you ask questions; when not being accused of being a fascist, brownshirted Nazi knuckle-dragger means you're not trying.
So the truth came out yesterday, after the usual Leftist pleasantries. From the New York Daily News:
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.”Thank goodness! We found out she wasn't mugged, but not before being soiled by the slime that passes for left wing thought.
Rhodes' Air America comrade, displaying the objectivity Air America is famous for contributed the following.
“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?”Michelle Malkin, fresh off winning the coveted Liberal-Whipping-Girl-of-the-Week Award, summed it up nicely by displaying on her site this proud reminder of the Randi Rhodes non-story:
So Randi Rhodes got some attention, the Left got to fling poo and conservative eyeballs got another work-out, rolling their way around and 'round watching liberal heads explode all across America.
