Radio Interviewer SID ROSENBERG defended his interview with SCOTT BAIO :
"IN DEFENSE OF SCOTT, I DID ASK HIM WHY HE THOUGHT CHILDHOOD ACTORS OF THE 1970S STRUGGLED SO MUCH WITH DRUGS AND ALCOHOL.
AND HE INCLUDED ERIN MORAN IN THE CONVERSATION.
TRUTH IS THE WHOLE MEDIA HAD HER DYING FROM AN O.D. AND THAT IS WHAT WE ALL THOUGHT WAS THE CAUSE WHEN SCOTT CAME ON.
TOO EASY TO JUMP ON HIM AFTER WE FOUND OUT WHY SHE HAD PASSED. I KNOW HE CARED FOR HER AND WAS BOTH FRUSTRATED AND UPSET."
The most important quoted statement from SCOTT BAIO's radio interview concerning the tragic death of ERIN MORAN is the following :
"I AM SADDENED BY WHAT HAPPENED AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS DRUGS THAT KILLED HER."
SCOTT BAIO NEVER SAID THAT ERIN MORAN DIED FROM DRUGS.
SID ROSENBERG DID NOT ASK SCOTT WHAT WAS THE CAUSE OF ERIN MORAN'S DEATH.
