I’m going to keep this brief, because if I stay in this post too long, my brain may explode from anger.
From the Statesman:
Garrison Keillor, the former host of “A Prairie Home Companion,” said Wednesday he has been fired by Minnesota Public Radio over allegations of improper behavior.
Keillor told The Associated Press of his firing in an email. In a follow-up statement, he said he was fired over “a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard.” He didn’t give details of the allegation.
I hate it when people say, “I never liked him” after a guy goes down for sexual misconduct, but I despise Garrison Keillor. Always have. Always will. He’s a bad guy. I’ve known he’s a bad guy for years, but even before I knew he was a bad guy, I hated Garrison Keillor. The reasons are myriad.
I do love the new Prairie Home Companion with Chris Thile. He’s fantastic, and so is his band, Nickel Creek. Good riddance to Garrison Keillor.
