Friday night plans? Not too late to change 'em! I'll be on the weekly "Beat the Press" segment of Greater Boston tonight, discussing the latest Globe funkiness; coverage of killer swine flu and the related suspension of world-class anti-Mexican Jay Severin; and John Henry and Linda Pizzuti's...candor. Please tune in, or watch online at your leisure.
Boston.com reports that boundary-pushing WTKK-FM host Jay Severin has been suspended for some deragatory commentary involving Mexicans and the swine flu. But the story doesn't say what those comments were.
Don't blame reporter David Abel. I tried contacting Heidi Raphael, the spokeswoman for Greater Media, WTKK's parent company.
