A Canadian hockey player has been suspended for referring to an opposing player as a "Euro" during a match, reports the Associated Press.

The Ontario Hockey League suspended Plymouth Whalers defenseman James Wisniewski for five games for telling Stefan Ruzicka that he did not fight "Euros" when challenged. Ruzika is from Slovakia.

Ted Baker, the OHL's director of hockey operations, said the league does not tolerate comments directed at players based on their origin, ethnicity or sexual orientation.


Oh for the love of Pete Jack.

And another one, because I think it relates to this:

NEW YORK -- Maria Shriver quit NBC News on Tuesday, saying it would be too tough to juggle a journalism job with her duties as first lady of California.

Shriver, a "Dateline NBC" reporter, said she will continue to work on specials connected to her children's books for other NBC properties.

Shriver took an extended leave from NBC News when her husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, ran for California governor. When he won, she returned to work, making two appearances as an anchor for "Dateline NBC."

But she said that it became clear to her that as first lady, her journalistic integrity would constantly be scrutinized.

"After much soul searching, I have asked to be relieved of my duties at NBC News," Shriver said in a statement.


Amazing. A journalist who doesn't think she's above bias.
