The Newsweek scandal has been talked about on WRKO this morning. Heard
John DePetro read a statement from Mike Elder saying that the station
has dropped its  longtime Sunday night show Newsweek On Air after it
was revealed that the magazine inaccurately reported that copies of
the Quran were flushed down the toilet at Gitmo Bay. It may have led
to the deaths of 15 people. (DePetro mentioned that he was actually
listening to "another station,
a competitor on the FM dial", and he heard Newsweek's Jonathan Alter and
the host laughing about the incident.)

WRKO's website now says "TBA" for Sunday nights from 9 to 10 pm.
