Randi's Story Appears More Hoax Than Hurt
Randi Rhodes Is Hurt
By Talking Radio
Randi Rhodes was injured on Sunday night on 39th Street and Park Ave, nearby her Manhattan apartment, while she was walking her dog Simon. According to Air America Radio late night host Jon Elliott, Rhodes was hurt pretty badly, losing several teeth and will probably be off the air for at least the rest of the week.
At of late Monday night we have not able to locate any press accounts of the injury and nothing has been posted on the AAR website.
We offer our most heartfelt sympathy that such a horrible thing has happened to this dear lady. We're keeping her in our prayers and hope she makes a complete recovery. This shouldn't happen to anyone.
*I have amended this report to reflect later reports this was not an attack but a simple accident injury. Story below:
Fellow host Jon Elliott claimed on the liberal radio network that Rhodes had been mugged while walking her dog, Simon, on Sunday night. Elliot, who said Rhodes lost several teeth in the attack, waxed about a possible conspiracy.
