(WPXI.com)   That tolling you hear is for controversial radio personality Wendy Bell's career, after she alarmed her listeners this summer by chiming in that park rangers should shoot protesters on sight. What a ding-a-ling   (wpxi.com) divider line

She's so controversial that I'd never even heard of her before reading this headline, and by the time I post this I will have already forgotten her name.

Followed her career at WTAE. It's like she got hit in the coont with a brick and suddenly was pissed at the planet Earth. The hate she has been spewing is jaw dropping, considering the circumstances.

She's local controversial, not national.

She's also proof that cancelling is bullshiat, because she got fired for being stupid before and ended up on drive time on the most powerful radio signal in the country to spew her hate-filled horseshiat

"My easy solution for the park rangers and hopefully snipers who are going to be watching for this is to shoot on sight."

I'm fairly certain that most park rangers don't get into that line of work in order to murder people to assuage your hurt feelings.

Bell was let go from her position with WTAE-TV in 2016 after making comments on social media regarding a shooting at a backyard barbecue that left 5 people dead.

Way to do due diligence, KDKA.

ambush-style shootings at a backyard party in Wilkinsburg. In trying to convey her outrage over the violence, she posted "you needn't be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago. ... they are young black men, likely in their teens or early 20s."

Two men described by prosecutors as suspects in the March 9 Wilkinsburg deadly ambush shootings continue to be held in the Allegheny County Jail, but on charges in an unrelated drug case that dates to 2013.

LO, whatever you say Hot Take Wendy:  https://www.pghcitypaper.com/​pittsburg​h/wendy-bell-compares-those-against-go​v-wolfs-coronavirus-orders-to-people-k​illed-in-benghazi-attacks/Content?oid=​17195611

Despite a recent pollshowing only 17% percent of Pennsylvanians think the social distance orders are too strict, and 59% of Pennsylvanians approving of Wolf's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bell still managed to claim the opposite during an April 24 broadcast of her show on KDKA Radio.

In fact, she went as far as to claim that Pennsylvanians are victims under Wolf's orders and said that those who disagree with the closures are like the victims of the Benghazi attacks of 2012.

Something's broken in her head. Not sure what, exactly. A postmortem examination of her brain tissue would be enlightening.

She was local controversial, who's is why she was never picked up in larger media markets.

Many years ago, my wife worked in a daycare Wendy Bell's kids attended. She was a Karen, but this is before mobile phones with cameras. If those were available then, Bell definitely would have gone viral nationally.

Yeah.

And I think the meanest thing, or closest to threatening thing anyone's said here yet was me joking, implying that her head should be examined while still alive.

I did a quick scan of the thread, and other than my comment, really only see people predicting that her career is not over and indicating that maybe she's not a really nice person.
