Minnesota Public Radio Drops Garrison Keillor Over Allegations of Improper Conduct

By MAYA SALAM NOV. 29, 2017

Minnesota Public Radio said Wednesday that it was severing all business ties with Garrison Keillor, the creator and retired host of “A Prairie Home Companion,” after allegations of “inappropriate behavior with an individual who worked with him.”

Over four decades, Mr. Keillor, 75, had created a financial juggernaut for the radio network with his weekly broadcast of songs, skits and tales of his fictional hometown Lake Wobegon, along with related books, recordings and other products.

In a statement he provided to The New York Times, Mr. Keillor said, “I’ve been fired over a story that I think is more interesting and more complicated than the version MPR heard. Most stories are.”

Here’s Dennis Dale on how we’re this close to airbrushing men out of old photos.

Some old Sailer content on Keillor:

  1. Keillor’s self-projection of his own insecurities about New York onto Trump (of all people)
  2. Keillor’s justly popular trashing of Bernard Henri-Levy’s book about America
  3. My review of the Prairie Home Companion movie directed by Robert Altman.
