This is reprehensible:
WNOV-AM (860) talker Mike McGee [Sr.] aired another disgusting rant on his radio show Thursday, blasting WTMJ-AM (620) talker Charlie Sykes at a time when Sykes is mourning the loss of his mother in a fire.Like Don Imus, McGee has a right to his opinions and to say them out loud as much as he wants. But he doesn't have a right to airtime, and WNOV should just put an end to it. It's not the first time McGee's crossed a line; he has to pay the station to air his show.
McGee said "a woman that had a fool like that deserves whatever's comin' to her, 'cause she raised a sure enough idiot." He went on: "My instincts say Charlie Sykes killed his mommy. . . . He got tired a waitin' for that money."
I mean, I'm no fan of Sykes, but there is no call for this. Time to get him off the air for good. [UPDATE: As I was typing this, McGee was pulled off the air "indefinitely." Good for them.]
