ESPN Suspends Tony Kornheiser Over Hannah Storm Comments :


ESPN has suspended Pardon the Interruption co-host Tony Kornheiser after saying on his radio show last week that his colleague, SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm, was wearing "a horrifying, horrifying outfit" and a "very, very tight shirt."

The Big Lead passes along the news that Kornheiser is suspended for "a few days" as a result of his comments.

Kornheiser was obviously trying to be funny when he said of Storm, "She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body ... I know she's very good, and I'm not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I won't ... but Hannah Storm ... come on now! Stop! What are you doing? ... She's what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point."
But the higher-ups at ESPN (and, presumably, Storm herself) apparently didn't find it so amusing.
