'Nice school shooting' would break up impeachment coverage, KNUS host says; show canceled

Colorado talk radio host Chuck Bonniwell said "a nice school shooting" could interrupt the coverage of President Trump's impeachment.

DENVER — A Colorado radio host said this week that a “nice school shooting” might break up the coverage of Pres. Donald Trump’s impeachment hearing. One day later, KNUS 710-AM has canceled "Chuck and Julie."

“You know, you wish for a nice school shooting to interrupt [it],” Chuck Bonniwell said in a conversation with his co-host Julie Hayden, after describing the impeachment process as “never-ending.”

Hayden quickly shot down Bonniwell’s comment in their Tuesday afternoon program.

“No, no. Don’t even – don’t even say that. No, don’t even say that,” she told Bonniwell. “Don’t call us. Chuck didn’t say that.”




Bonniwell added that he wouldn’t want anyone to be hurt before the conversation moved on with a caller.

The clip was removed from the podcast as of Wednesday afternoon. 9NEWS downloaded the audio prior to the edit.

2. In a truly bizarre twist, the station is putting Sebastian Gorka in that time slot.

I kid you not.

"The station released the

following statement on its website:

“Given the history of school violence that has plagued our community, 710 KNUS confirms that an inappropriate comment was made on the Chuck & Julie show by co-host Chuck Bonniwell. A programming decision was made to end the program immediately. Starting tomorrow, December 19, the 710KNUS, 1-4pm weekday time slot will feature the Salem Network show, America First, hosted by Sebastian Gorka.”

3. And then Julie tries to GASLIGHT everyone


“Don’t call us. Chuck didn’t say that.”

Julie he did say that. He wished for a "NICE SCHOOL SHOOTING". He said that. I heard him say it. So don't go telling me what I heard with my own ears.

You're Co-Host wanted someone to go and shoot up a school, but please do it nicely. There is a massive sickness within your party.

6. Her comments were bizarre and totally self serving

The article also had a bizarre sentence about Julie "shot down" her co-hosts vulgar comment. Shot down? Seriously the fucker was talking about a school shooting, and the writer uses this turn of phrase? Ugh.

5. Hey Julie Hayden, you soul-less fuck-wit, CHUCK. DID. SAY. THAT.

OWN YOUR POSITION.

Chuck, your co-host, said that.

Nothing you say *after* that wipes out the fact that he *did* say it. It is your show -- OWN IT.

You made you bed with Chuck. Now you lie in it. Now your show lies in it. Now your channel lies in it.

You can deny and lie and delete and edit until the cows come home. Nothing will ever change the fact that your co-host said it, and you did not *contradict* it -- you pathetically instructed him not to say it and immediately denied that he said it.

9. Glad these tools are off the air.

Really too bad Sebastian Gorka gets a leg up as a result.

11. What a horrible, shitty thing to say, and they got their just deserts.

But I wouldn't put it past the Trump cabal to try something like that.
