Dr. Laura Schlessinger
In a stunning move, radio talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger has announced that she will quit her job at the end of her current contract which expires at the end of the year.
The host of the “Dr. Laura Show” was involved in a racially tinged scandal last week when she used the N-word TEN times on her radio show during a conversation with an African-American caller. Schlessinger was furious that “it’s ok” for male comedians “on HBO” to use the wor “N****r” but not her or any other white performers to do so.
Even in announcing her decision on CNN with Larry King Tuesday, Schlessinger was defiant. Schlessinger said that she was ending her radio show to regain her “First Amendment rights.”
