Dori Monson: “Probably a union worker who can’t be fired”

Rightwing talk radio host Dori Monson is the hands-down winner of this week's Shoot-Your-Mouth-Off-First-and-Ask-Questions Later award.

His bass-ackwards on-the-air comment was in regard to the well-publicized anecdote about an Alaska Airlines baggage handler who fell asleep in the cargo bay, woke up in a panic after the plane had taken off and started screaming for help.

Again, Dori Monson's on-air comment was “Probably a union worker who can’t be fired.”

Here are some of the facts that Wrong Way Corrigan got backwards:

The baggage handler was NOT a union member.  He was employed by a non-union subcontractor based in the U.K.

Ten years ago, Alaska Airlines fired all 472 of its union baggage handlers.  The motive, of course, was the vast increase in profits to be made by the airline by replacing those lazy union parasites with harder-working low-wage non-union workers; such as the stellar example mentioned above.

Oh, and the snoozing baggage handler DID get fired by Alaska Airlines.

Just wanted to set the record straight.

I can't stand that guy. He always sounds like he's trying to talk through a head jammed with snot. Plus he's a moron.

Erik: I guess the station needed a token wingtard.

Jim: A snothead and a moron -- he's got it all.

I just thought of something-

In any typical Radio/TV Station about 90% of the Employees belong to a Union. From the Announcers, the Reporters, the Technicians, The Engineers, and even the Administrative Support (in many Stations). In fact almost everybody but management. I'm pretty sure this guy is, and most certainly so is everybody who works around him.
