Default ESPN suspends PTI's Kornheiser

I didn't see this...

ha ha!

He's right, you know



ESPN has suspended TV commentator Tony Kornheiser for remarks about fellow ESPN personality Hannah Storm, according to multiple reports Tuesday.


Kornheiser, the popular host of the show "Pardon the Interruption," is known for making sports figures the subject of his humorous criticism, but in a recent show he aimed his commentary at Storm's wardrobe.

"Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today," Kornheiser said. "Shes got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now.

"Shes got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body I know shes very good, and Im not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I wont but Hannah Storm come on now! Stop! What are you doing?"

If he gets paid over the suspension it will be a ratings bonanza when he comes back. He can milk it.

Typical ESPN suits. Can't have anyone criticize our employees.

I get the suspension on this one guys. As a male you might not quite understand what often happens in the workplace for us girls, whether it be a negative remark or more often than not a positive and aggressive, yet mostly inappropriate attention from not a buddy, but a weirdo at work.

I enjoy PTI - watch it almost daily, but he was out of line on this one.

It would have been different if he was referring to a random woman outside of his workplace, but that wasn't the case here.

His remarks were tacky and insensitive and without punishing him, what kind of message would that send to the rest of his coworkers? And what kind of working environment would it be if such behavior went unchecked?

Having said all that - I absolutely LOVE boots. Looks like I need to get me another pair. I'm lovin' those red ones she's sportin' !

He's a dork, and an ugly, gawky bad-toothed balding dork at that. He's lucky that Hannah Storm doesn't point that out to him and to her audience every single day she's at work.



This guy has the right to judge other people's appearance?
