The least surprising news of the week (okay, it's only Monday) comes from KHOW, where controversial hard-right radio host Peter Boyles has been fired, according to 9News. Boyles was recently said to be involved in a "heated physical altercation" with producer Greg Hollenback. Multiple sources reported that red marks were seen on Hollenback's neck following the incident with Boyles.
Yoda could have warned the notoriously immigrant-bashing, Islamophobic, "birther" radio host that it might come to this:
Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
I'll shed no tears for a fearful, angry hater who is now minus a radio job–but I do hope, for the sake of his family and fans, that Boyles has sought any necessary and appropriate care indicated following an alleged violent outburst toward a longtime friend and colleague. If Boyles seeks help and eventually chooses to discuss whatever challenges led him to make a (likely career-ending) move as serious as allegedly attacking his producer, he might do more good for his audience than he ever did as a political commentator.
