Well, so far it's just a one-week suspension.  We'll see what happens 
next.  It seems a bit much for Entercom to say that Minihane's remarks 
didn't comply with Entercom's standards only AFTER Fox withdrew its 
advertizing.  That suggests that Entercom has no standards of good taste 
unless it hits them in the pocketbook.

It should also be noted that, so long as Minihane was criticizing 
Andrews for a softball interview, there was no problem.  It's when he 
degenerated into sexist innuendo that he crossed the line.
