The corporation  who owns the Australian radio station 2DayFM…which is being held responsible for the prank call which resulted in the death of a British nurse at King Edward VII’s Hospital…is giving the nurses family 320,000 British Pounds or roughly $500,000. 

Jacintha  Saldanha   , 46, was found dead in the hospitals housing for nurses. 

Saldanha’  is the nurse who answered and transferred the prank call made by two of the radio stations DJ’s who were able to obtain sensitive information about Kate Middleton…the “Duchess of Cambridge” who was in the hospital and being treated for acute morning sickness.

Dr Laura Quits

On the heels of a controversy surrounding her repeated use of the N-word on the air, Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced last night that her decades-long career on talk radio will be coming to an end this December.

“I made the decision not to do radio anymore,” Schlessinger said on CNN’s “Larry King Live.” “I want to regain my first amendment rights. I want to be able to say what is on my mind, in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry.”

Just last week in a debate about racism on her radio program, the conservative host used a racial slur 11 times on the air.

“Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO. Listen to a black comic. And all you hear is n—-, n—-, n—-,” Schlessinger said.  Read full story and more at abc.com

Dr Laura N Word

Dr. Laura Schlessinger used the “N” word in a talk show, but apologizes on her website for using the term with a caller on her show, according to Entertainment.com (EW).

Schlessinger said the “N” word many times during the call Tuesday morning.

“I articulated the N-word all the way out—more than one time,” Schlessinger stated in her apology Wednesday morning. “And that was wrong. I’ll say it again—that was wrong.”

Why would Dr. Laura use the word to begin with?  She claimed it was an attempt to make a point and it she got out of line.

“I ended up, I’m sure, with many of you losing the point I was trying to make, because you were shocked by the fact that I said the word,” Dr. Laura continued. “I, myself, realized I had made a horrible mistake, and was so upset I could not finish the show. I pulled myself off the air at the end of the hour. I had to finish the hour, because 20 minutes of dead air doesn’t work. I am very sorry. And it just won’t happen again.”  Read full story and more here

Dr. Laura’s Blog

Black guys use it all the time. Turn on HBO and listen to a black comic, and all you hear is n****, n*****, n*****. I don’t get it. If anybody without enough melanin says it, it’s a horrible thing. But when black people say it, it’s affectionate. It’s very confusing.  Continue reading here
