Kornheiser gets the Pfffffft, and should get the boot, too

Presenting the inaugural Pfffffft Flat Tire Award to…

…Tony Kornheiser, and not for the dissing of Hannah Storm that got him suspended for two weeks.

TK gets this special recognition here for advocating motor vehicle assaults on people who ride bicycles. (Listen starting at about 32:00 into that March 11 show.) Note 3/19/2010: That show no longer seems to be available. Hmmm.

If his admittedly stupid comments about how Storm was dressed got him two weeks off, how long do you think he should go for telling drivers to run cyclists down in the streets?

“Tapping” a cyclist with a car is a violent criminal act, and it could easily be deadly. The scary thing is he was saying what a lot of people think. We don’t need broadcasters encouraging them.

He should be fired for it.

    If the right side of the road is so great, then they should dive on that side.
