Palin Ally calls Organizers of ‘Alaskan Women Reject Palin’ – “Socialist baby-killin’ maggots”

Alaskan Radio Host Releases Contact Details of Organizers On Air and Encourages Retaliation

Reprehensible on air remarks from Eddie Burke cause radio suspension:

Anchorage AM radio host Eddie Burke has been suspended after broadcasting the phone numbers of women involved in organizing a protest rally against Sarah Palin over the weekend, his station manager said Monday.

In a statement, KBYR-AM 700 station manager Justin McDonald said broadcasting the numbers last week was “breaking station policy.” Burke will be suspended for one week without pay, he said.

“Though I do not agree with some of the comments he made, as a licensee, we attempt to respect everyone’s First Amendment rights, including Eddie Burke’s, our listeners’ and our nonlisteners’,” McDonald’s statement said. “That does not mean I condone inciting violence or harm in any way to people wanting to voice their opinions with peaceful protest.”
