Randi Rhodes Speaks About Non-Mugging, Raises New Questions
Randi's Inconsistent Explanation Defies Credibility
*** ALSO: Limbaugh Auction Goes Bonkers ***
*** NEW: One Fishy Story! ***
Now that Air America Radio host Randi Rhodes has returned to the airwaves, at least one mystery has been solved: we know why her lawyer was in charge of making press statements.
That's because as soon as Randi opened her mouth on yesterday's show, new questions instantly began to emerge.
In this exclusive, Radio Equalizer- created video, listen as Randi digs a deep, deep hole for herself:
Blaming everyone but herself for the events that transpired, with special venom reserved for the press, Rhodes only deepened the confusion surrounding her accident. Here are questions we'd like answered:
Why did she send an email to Air America staffers claiming to have been mugged if there was no indication one had occurred?
Why has host Jon Elliot been forced to apologize for simply relaying Randi's note to network listeners? Is he the fall guy for her dishonesty?
Since there was never any evidence to support an attack claim, why did she even suggest this possibility in a way she knew would reach the press?
Why won't she tell us how much she'd had to drink before she'd stepped out of the Irish pub?
And perhaps most importantly, why doesn't it bother her that the phony mugging story was quickly turned into a chance to beat up on conservatives, who were actually blamed for the incident?
Sadly, the explanation of events given during a seven-minute opening segment yesterday simply doesn't hold water, especially her reason for initially telling others it was a mugging. Rhodes claims doctors told her she might have been attacked because they couldn't find any evidence she'd fainted.
Without a shred of real evidence to back that up, why make a statement like that? And if she did feel there had been an attack, then why not call the police at once?
Funny enough, in between complaining about the media presence outside her apartment building, Rhodes wonders aloud why her condition didn't generate more sympathy from others. Memo to Randi: try telling the truth next time, it will do wonders for what's left of your credibility. This is at best a weak attempt at cover- your- ass.
