Fox 19 anchor suspended for calling Maddow ‘an angry young man’

A Fox 19 news anchor returned to work on Tuesday after being suspended for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an “angry young man.”

Tricia Macke received a two-day suspension for the comment she made in October, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Macke’s Facebook comments were noticed by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Last week, the group called on the Cincinnati Fox affiliate to “take swift action to condemn Macke’s remarks,” saying her comment was “completely unacceptable for someone in the business of journalism.”

..................

“I apologize to Ms. Maddow and any others who may have been offended by my comments, as they do not reflect my firm beliefs in individual and equal rights, and they certainly do not represent the opinions or position of my employer WXIX-TV,” she said in a statement.

2. Rachel doesn't look at all like a man and it was a long time before I knew she was gay.

 

I know I'm guilty of something similar with the Coulterbeast, but Rachel doesn't LOOK like a man.
