    Nah, it was well after he was rushed to the hospital.
    That was kept quiet.

    Wasn't there speculation of Dominic Barbera?

    IIRC it was a friend of one of the ambulance crew who responded to the 911 call who posted about it.

    Whoever it was, Howard knew the person. He said on-air "Not cool." Robin added "He has a good job, too". I think it was Tim Sabien.

    Maybe that's how Wiggy found out about it but it was being talked about long before that.

    I love how one of the angriest guys in the studio had an "erase hate" shirt. What a creep.

    I recall thinking it was someone who worked at the hospital where Artie once again cheated death. I think Stern said as much - and that would fit with Robin's comment - which makes more sense if it's about her general knowledge about Hospital staff pay. I thought she was making the comment in terms of her saying: "I know how much someone in that medical position typically gets paid". As she was once a nurse. Which makes more sense than her blabbing about a staff member

    Probably a head nurse or similar at the hospital.

    So old man Stern thought that it would have been a secret otherwise? This shit gets out, was probably multiple people that H-mus and the show know nothing about.

    I had the impression that it was Dominic and that is why we have never really heard from him since.

    When Artie told him "I'm a gay basher and I'll bash your gay head" I couldn't have agreed with him more. Not because he's gay, he's just such......a fag.

    When they talked about it they clearly said it was the ambulance people and someone in their position should be ashamed of doing what they did.
