I heard the interview on Imus...It was with Howard Fineman, not Alter.

The program in question was "Imus in the Morning"  and some of the
laughter was occasioned by banter AROUND this controversy...
the Iman was urging Alter who lives not far from the studio
now in NJ to come over and take his punishment rather than
keep talking over the phone.  And bring Isikoff (sp?) with him.
