ESPN suspends Tony Kornheiser for telling the truth

Here's what he said on Pardon the Interruption:

"Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She's 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. And she's got on her typically very, very tight shirt. So she looks like she's got sausage casing wrapping around her upper body. I mean, I know she's very good, and I'm not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I won't ... But, Hannah Storm, come on now! Stop! What are you doing? ... [She's] what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point."

Here's what Hannah said about her fashion sense:

"It doesn't take me any time at all to get dressed at work because I put together a bunch of outfits at once, jewelry and all, and take them en masse to work. When I get there at about 5:30 AM, I just pick an outfit depending on how I am feeling that day. You can't mess with your clothes much at that hour of the morning! And about once a week I totally forget earrings!"

Disny has taken political correctness way too far. Here's what they said:

"Hurtful and personal comments such as these are not acceptable and have significant consequences," said John Skipper, ESPN's vice president for content. "Tony has been suspended from PTI for two weeks. Hannah is a respected colleague who has been an integral part of the success of our morning SportsCenter."

That's hurtful?

Pardon the interruption, but give me a break!

Give me a break!!

Suppose she, who btw looks very good and trys to be feminine, started saying " what is this pudgy, balding, middle aged nerd doing sports shows? Its time for him to adorn himself in pants that go up to his armpits and act the age he is ".

What a jerk this guy is.

I like the red boots--even though they belong on Hannah Montana not Storm!

His schtick is being a pompous jerk--and that was the point.

You score the point
