Tony Kornheiser Suspended

Tony Kornheiser, host of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, was suspended from the show for two weeks after ridiculing (click link for audio) SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm for the outfit she was wearing.

Kornheiser apologized for the remarks on his radio show Friday.

So what exactly did Kornheiser say to warrant the suspension? Read on. 

“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.” [She’s 47.] “She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body … 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.”
