Claim: Rachel Marsden of "Red Eye" Escorted Out Of Fox Studios
Update: "She's Out Of Her Fucking Mind"

Above the Fold Update: The NYPost, which would have some decent sources in FoxNews, I'm thinking:

SECURITY officers hastily escorted "Red Eye" contributor Rachel Marsden out of Fox News Channel's Midtown headquarters yesterday for bizarre and erratic behavior. "She's out of her [bleeping] mind. She was doing crazy stuff," a spy told us. The brown-haired hottie is notorious in Canada, where authorities say she falsely accused a university swim coach of sexual harassment and harassed a Vancouver radio personality.


And not as in "escorted by a dashing gentleman caller," either.

It's Gawker. Is it true? No idea. No one tells me anything.

I'll see if I can email her to find out. (As if she'll tell me.)

Or I can check later to see if Andrew Levy's popped up on my Googlechat. (As if he'd tell me.)

So, basically, I'm saying all I have is Gawker for this claim, and that's all I ever will have.

Clicking on that Salon hatchet-job linked at Gawker will reveal some... surprising stuff.

Which I'm not endorsing either.

Confirmed... More or less. The escorting seems to have been due to a firing.

May 30/07: A note to inquiring Red Eye viewers: I will no longer be appearing on the show, as I have been told that it is heading in a "different direction" from its inception, and I am the "first casualty". As a political and news commentator, being a panelist on what had become a totally off-the-wall-and-into-orbit show was an interesting experience. It was also the first time that I was ever considered the "sane one" on any program, so I am grateful for that unique opportunity and wish the boys the very best of luck.

Well, now that she's fired and therefore cannot hurt what I'd like to think of as "my career," I'll quibble with her "sane one" self-description. The rest of the guys were riffing, and she always injected this strange discordant note into everything. She was a bad fit. You'd have the other guys goofing around and suddenly she'd break in, pretty much in a non-sequitor, to drop this statistic she'd dug up on the internet as part of her show research. Whether the stat fit or not, whether it derailed the conversation or not, that stat was going to be mentioned come hell or high water.

Her factoids seemed to be like ICBMs -- no recall or abort codes. She was like WOPR in nuke-me pumps.

WOPR was the computer in War Games, by the way, aka "Joshua." I could have said "the computer in War Games" and not left anyone out of the reference, but I don't placate when it comes to eighties movies lore.

Thanks to PetiteDov for the original tip and the well-oiled machine that is Slublog for the confirmation.
