Quick Notes on Michael Savage
I don't listen to right-wing hate radio much these days--I leave that to Media Matters for America which has been doing a bang-up job of responding to right-wing misinformation and hate-mongering.
One talk show jock that irritates me is Michael Savage (I have written about him here, here, and here). I did listen to Savage a little bit last week and a little bit yesterday. Here are some insights:
1. Savage is claiming that the reason that then-UK Secretary of State for the Home Department placed Savage on a list of people not allowed to enter Great Britain is that she received critiques of his radio broadcasts put out by Media Matters for America that took his words "out of context." Here's my position: 1) Although he's a major league douche, Savage isn't as bad as most of the other people placed on the list. However, Great Britain is a sovereign nation and should be allowed to keep whomever it wants to keep out of its territory; 2) If Savage thinks that MMFA is treating him unfairly and taking his words out of context, he should give some examples. 2. I believed that Savage is working on a book titled, Banned in Britain."
2. Savage is a fan of Curtis LeMay.
3. Echoing Rush, Savage said that he wasn't planning on jogging in Fort Marcy Park anytime soon.
4. Academician and WorldNetDaily contributor Ellis Washington is apparently working on a book about Savage.
