Joe Cowley, Chicago sportswriter and alleged MN resident, in trouble after sexist Twitter rant
|Cowley is a misogynist who allegedly writes about Chicago sports from Minnesota.|
Wrong. Cowley reportedly lives in the Twin Cities area, and he may have been flying from MSP to Chicago when he unleashed an absurdly sexist Twitter rant that has almost cost him his job.
Time Out Chicago reports that Cowley has been placed on "final notice" -- one step away from firing -- after disparaging women with a string of sexist tweets he offered up while on a plane.
Cowley, who is no stranger to controversy, kicked off his sexist rant with some general disparagement of flight attendants:
Time Out's report elicited the following comment from a reader named Ray Barone:
Since Cowley lives here anyway, perhaps Sun-Times editors could punish his almost unbelievable misogyny by forcing him to cover the WNBA's Chicago Sky when they come to town this summer to play our beloved Lynx.
@dbrauer yes, he has said on his KFAN appearances he lives in the SLP area.-- ryanmathre (@ryanmathre) May 2, 2012
