NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Randi Rhodes, the host of the eponymously-named Show on Air American Radio, was mugged outside her New York City apartment on Sunday Evening. The fact that she was wearing only a jogging suit with no purse or jewelry has led to some speculation as to whether this was a mugging or a ideologically-motivated crime.
Politically liberal in her views, the talk show host may have sparked anger in an agitated ‘conservative’ listener. Whether or not this was a hate crime no one affiliated with AAR is saying until all the facts are in. Rhodes is recovering from the assault, being badly beaten and and reportedly having lost some teeth. She is expected to return to AAR on Thursday. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
