Sid "Sidiot" Rosenberg
Mindless idiot or insensitive punk?
You make the call.
Sid Rosenberg, probably the most singularly untalented "man" in radio today was let go from the Imus show for his comments on breast cancer. Here is some of the coverage.

I have issues with ... Sid Rosenberg
Sid Rosenberg used to be the sports sidekick on the Imus in the morning show, heard locally on 860-AM. That is until he made what has to be the most brainless and insensitive comment on breast cancer ever uttered on radio ... or anywhere else on the planet for that matter.
Sid has never been a favorite of mine. His mindless and generally clueless sports banter contributed little to the show. His off the cuff remarks ranged from claiming that Venus and Serena Williams were better suited for National Geographic than Playboy. His expertise in tennis was reflected with this comment ... "faggots play tennis." and female soccer players are "juiced up dykes." WOW, what a font of information. The high point of his career on Imus was challenging producer Bernard to a boxing match where he got his face smashed for 3 rounds.
All that was eclipsed last month when the show turned to singer Kylie Minogue's breast cancer. Sid, in a fit of utter stupidity delivers this line ... "She won't look so pretty when she's bald with one tit." Really nothing needs to be added here after that. Anybody that thinks that's a good line to deliver on the radio is beyond help. With IMUS running a camp for kids with ... get this .. CANCER the writing was on the wall for Sidiot. He was pulled from the Imus show but amazingly still has his midday show.

Have the FANdroids finally reached the end of their rope with Sid (Sidiot) Rosenberg?
Six weeks after being released from a substance abuse rehabilitation center, Rosenberg, FAN's resident bad boy, is again in hot water.
On the Wednesday edition of "The (Don) Imus In the Morning Show," Rosenberg - even by his normal standards - descended deep into his personal sewer to offer disgusting, insensitive commentary on singer Kylie Minogue's battle with breast cancer.
Sidiot's words were so offensive - so hurtful - I'm not going to print them. He basically commented on how Minogue would look after undergoing chemotherapy and surgery.

"He will not be returning to the 'Imus In the Morning' show," a spokesperson for WFAN-owner Infinity Broadcasting said Tuesday, declining to elaborate.
Rosenberg had been mysteriously AWOL from Imus' show since last Wednesday when he stunned listeners — and viewers of the MSNBC simulcast — by mocking singer Kylie Minogue's breast cancer diagnosis:
"She won't look so pretty when she's bald with one t--," Rosenberg said.
Indefinite suspension became banishment Tuesday, although "The FAN" says Rosenberg will keep his midday talk show (with Joe Benigno) and Giants game day broadcasts.
Reality World May 25, 2005 Excerpt ...
Syndicated radio listeners and viewers on the MSNBC TV simulcast were shocked when Rosenberg commented in coarse terms how the Australian pop star "won't look so pretty when she's bald" with one breast, referring to her upcoming cancer treatment.
There are many more links on the Net including the democratic party who is using this against Sidiot's cousin, Senator Norm Coleman (R).
