Tony Kornheiser Finally Talks Daniel Snyder Lawsuit

Tony Kornheiser finally broke his silence on the Daniel Snyder lawsuit during the Tony Kornheiser Show Tuesday morning on ESPN 980 in Washington, DC.

Kornheiser is an employee of Red Zebra Broadcasting, which is owned by Snyder. The Pardon the Interruption co-host normally never holds back his thoughts, but Snyder was thought to be off limits until today.

“Let me say that my own opinion about this is that this lawsuit, in its various forms, has given this particular story life that it could never have had before. My comment would be I would not bring this lawsuit. I would not have brought this lawsuit. I would not continue the lawsuit. I think it’s a losing proposition to do so. I think when you are a public figure there are things that are bothersome and they sort of come with the territory.”

Better late than never, I guess.

Sinise Special Airs on FNC This Weekend

sinise_1-8.jpgGary Sinise moves from “CSI: NY” to Iraq, with a special on Fox News premiering at 9pmET Saturday, following the actor on a visit to the region last year.

It is Sinise’s fourth trip to Iraq since 9/11. The Los Angeles Times’ Matea Gold writes that Sinise “agreed to let his friend filmmaker Jonathan Flora shoot footage of his trip last year to put a spotlight on the thousands of troops who remain in combat.”

Says Sinise, “Iraq is off the front page now and has been replaced with other things, so unless you are personally attached or involved with someone who has sacrificed, who is serving in the military, then you’re probably not too aware.”

Related: The Hollywood Reporter’s Paul J. Gough interviewed Sinise, who said of Fox News: “They’ve done a lot of these types of pieces on the Iraq War before, and we thought they’d be interested.”
