A Melbourne radio host who taunted Julian Assange's mother with a Nazi slogan has apologised and been taken off-air for a month.
3AW host John-Michael Howson caused outrage on Sunday, attacking Christine Assange's decision to cancel a pre-planned phone interview due to his treatment of a previous guest.
"I won't be doing an interview with you because you're acting like a pig," said the mother of the WikiLeaks founder. Mr Howson responded by screaming on air, "Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil! Sieg Heil!" as Ms Assange hung up the phone.

"I unreservedly apologise," Mr Howson, who co-hosts 3AW's Sunday morning program, said in the statement.
this is an example of how real rightwingnuts feel they are entitled to say or do anything they please. A month? slap on the wrist. If he has the moneY limpnuts has, he'll probably be on a beach some where dreaming of the coming FOURTH REICH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And remember, it's the right wingers who support Israel and the jewish people.
WRONG! The right wingers are mostly racist, closet anti-semites, who could care less about the jewish people, and are more concerned with whether Israel exists so that their beloved Jesus can return and rapture all the crazies.
