England has banned radio talk show sphincter-mouth Michael Savage. One of the lesser-known right-wing babblers, Savage deserves no attention. Even so, like so many of his conservative counterparts, Savage recruits legions of regulars who insist on tuning in for their daily doses of hate, bigotry, paranoia, fear and slander.
Kudos to Great Britain for their wisdom. The only problem is, today, belching his “righteous indignation,” Savage got EXTENDED coverage in back-to-back segments on CNN.
Of COURSE Savage is going to capitalize on this “outrage”. He’s a media whore. It’s what he does every day. He’s doing so “on principle,” he notes, stating from a opulent setting that he would never have to do another broadcast in order to enjoy his current lifestyle indefinitely, and on this, I’m sure he’s not lying.
Remember Glen Beck? Five years ago he’s a regional right-wing radio nobody. The industry breaks right for these sibilant sons of bitches. They don’t need help.
Morning anchor John Roberts of CNN closed with the sagely “I guess no publicity is bad publicity”. How Roberts ever got past Duran Duran, I’ll never know. And don’t get me started on his “perky” (and in saying so, I don’t mean to be sexist) partner.
