Libtalker Calls Coleman 'Little Black Leprechaun'

HARRY'S RADIO SCHOOL

Where Else Does A Libtalker Learn This Kind Of Language?





*** LEE RODGERS OUT AT KSFO / SAN FRANCISCO ***



The first question is obvious: could a conservative host get away with this kind of language? But the next one is just as important: in an environment where the Senate majority leader can get away with racist terminology simply because he's a Democrat, why would a libtalker's poor choice of words produce a different result?

Call it the Harry Reid School of Broadcasting, where a budding libtalker can truly speak his mind.

During yesterday's Bill Press Show, listen as fill-in host / program producer Peter Ogburn calls disturbed actor Gary Coleman "a little black leprechaun". Below the clip, see the now-infamous panel discussion that has swept the Internet:


PETER OGBURN - BILL PRESS SHOW PRODUCER / FILL-IN HOST (23:49): There he goes. There he goes! And he just goes storming off the set.

And one of the reasons it’s so funny is because he’s so tiny. He’s like four-foot-six and he’s like a little black leprechaun that goes off the set.

It’s the funniest thing!
