I Meant to blog this on Thursday. Better lat than never....
The biggest hater of all -- Michel "Wiener" Savage -- was dumped by his "flagship" hate-radio station in San Fransisco. They've "decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction" and "the Savage Nation does not fit into that vision."
Took long enough.
From Think Progress:
Here are some of Wiener's most recent vile moments (via Media Matters).
Earlier today, the conservative blog Patriot Axom noted that far-right radio host Michael Savage has been taken “off the air” from his San Francisco-based flagship station, Talk 910 KNEW. Now, a representative from the station has issued a statement explaining why it will no longer air Savage’s show:
I’m going to answer the very first question many of you have.
“Why did you take Michael Savage off the air?”
Here’s your no-spin direct answer; we have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information. The Savage Nation does not fit into that vision.
910 KNEW’s decision is the latest blow to Savage’s efforts to spread hate. Last winter, following a campaign by the Council On American-Islamic Relations and Brave New Films, numerous advertisers ended their relationship with Savage, including Geico, Union Bank of California, and ITT Technical Institute. Savage has in the past advocated killing 100 million Muslims, compared President Jimmy Carter to Hitler, and has said that the U.S. Senate is “more histrionic than ever” because of the addition of female senators.read more...
