Yeah, I know: “Who cares?” Well, she’s in the news today, it’s exceedingly rare that we get tips which themselves constitute news, and the source is solid. I quote from his e-mail:
Not sure if you care about this at all but here some info on the Rhodes situation…
She’s going to be signing a deal with Nova M Radio in the next few hours for about the same money Air America was paying her. She will broadcast Monday afternoon on all Clear Channel affiliates and several other stations. The folks at Air America don’t miss her one bit… She has moved from New York City to West Palm Beach, FL…
They’ve been planning since she was suspended but the deal is solid now…
Nova M’s another liberal outfit, of course, and was co-founded by Sheldon Drobny, who also founded … Air America. Isn’t Rhodes persona non grata now among progressives, thanks to her Hillary/whore comment? Not really. Watch the clip; there are plenty of cheers and laughter from the audience. Besides, judging from this blog post, Drobny may be less concerned these days than he used to be with what the liberal intelligentsia thinks of him.
The tipster’s not the only one claiming that Rhodes won’t be missed at AAR. HuffPo’s sources for its item about her allegedly refusing to apologize for the Hillary comment claim there’s “relief and joy” at her departure. Good luck, Sheldon! Exit quotation: “Sometimes it’s for the best that the leading player leaves so you can rebuild with better talent.” Er, rebuild what?
