Potential guests on the Tony Kornheiser Show beware, you are not to speak ill of Dan Snyder on Mr. Tony’s airwaves. And if you’re thinking it’s because Dan Snyder owns the radio station you’d be totally wrong. Because according to John Feinstein (friend of Tony and basher of Danny) it has nothing to do with business and everything to do with friendship.
Tony Kornheiser has specifically asked me not to bring up Dan Snyder on his show. I feel queasy about this but Tony’s my friend and it is his show. It isn’t as if there aren’t plenty of other forums for me to talk about Snyder and Snyder is one of those guys Tony simply isn’t going to go after–not because he’s paid by him but because he likes him.
DAAWWWWWWWWWWWWW, that’s sweet. It also explains why Tony’s show hasn’t gone into much detail on the Dan Snyder vs. Washington City Paper lawsuit (as pointed out by Dan Steinberg) that has captivated every other local media outlet. I don’t know how far back the friendship goes, but I am pretty sure that they’ve been able to bond over their mutual disdain for City Paper’s Dave McKenna.
So what we know is that Tony doesn’t like anyone bad-mouthing his friends on his time, regardless of their crimes against a once proud franchise. Unless of course you want to call up and make fun of John “Junior” Feinstein. I’m pretty sure that’s still fair game.
