October 17, 2007 -- Liberal talk-show host Randi Rhodes suffered painful facial injuries Sunday night when she slammed to the ground in an murky incident alternately described as a mugging, a fall, a drunken stumble and a right-wing hate attack.

The lawyer for the Air America star confirmed only that Rhodes had been "propelled to the ground" while walking her dog outside her East Side apartment, but offered no other details except that nothing had been stolen.

The hullabaloo began Monday night when Jon Elliott, another network host, reported that the loose-lipped lib, who takes her name from Ozzy Osbourne's late guitarist, Randy Rhoads, had been mugged at 39th Street and Park Avenue, a hop, skip and jump from her apartment.


Gaulin was repeatedly asked whether the word "propelled" meant that Rhodes had been pushed.


An anonymous contributor to said Rhodes fell after drinking 14 Bloody Mary's at a Midtown Irish pub.

Talk show host apologizes for faulty report of NYC mugging

NEW YORK - An Air America radio personality apologized Tuesday for saying that a colleague, the liberal talk show host Randi Rhodes, had been the victim of a violent street mugging perpetrated by "the right wing hate machine."

Air America's Jon Elliott announced on his late-night show Monday that Rhodes had been assaulted Sunday while walking her dog in Manhattan near her Park Avenue apartment. He also speculated that the attack was the work of someone trying to silence a liberal voice.

Elliott's account of the incident, however, was contested Tuesday by Rhodes attorney, Robert Gaulin.

Gaulin confirmed that Rhodes was injured after she was floored by someone _ or something _ as she strolled the streets of Manhattan's Murray Hill district around 8 p.m., but wasn't sure herself what sent her tumbling to the pavement.


Whatever actually happened, I wish Randi a fast and full recovery!
