Michael Savage, the #3 most listened to talk-show host in America, was honored by Talkers Magazine, the "Bible" of talk radio, with this year's Freedom of peech Award.
Recently, Talkers held a bash at which they presented the award. C-SPAN, which claims to be nonpartisan and nonideological, was there and carried most of the speeches. But for some reason, it blacklisted Savage's speech accepting the award.
Why would a nonideological network do this? More liberal media bias, obviously. C-SPAN has now willingly made itself part of the liberal effort to suppress freedom of speech in this country.
Because he’s as crazy—I mean pathologically, as a loon
Have you sent a letter to C-SPAN asking them?
Who knew Savage was so popular. Does anyone have the complete list. Rush and Stern have to be some combination of #1 and #2. Or is Howard out because he is on satellite?
What he said then, today makes him sound more like a visionary.
Let me guess. Because C-Span is an organ of the government, and Savage often says those three words the government won’t tolerate: Borders; language; culture.
Apparently he did.
Last I checked the liberals were trying to revive the Fairness Doctrine with an eye to banning talk radio so it’s no surprise they’d start by denying publicity of any kind to Savage.
I am a huge Savage fan but CSPAN usually doesn’t run entire programs of events like that. I don’t think Savage was necessarily snubbed. As tony Soprano says, “he’s trying to make a molehill outta’ this.”
Howie Carr could join the top “talkers” in the country if only his show would go national!
Except that Savage is not conservative (just a liberal in sheep’s clothing).
What do you mean? Did they not show part of the Talker’s convention?
I remember seeing the John Birch Society annual convention on C*SPAN. I have no idea why they didn’t broadcast Savage, but it’s probably not because of his politics.
Doesn't bother me a bit for him to not get airtime.
Crazy like a fox, which makes him the most repugnant charlatan preying the airways since Jim & Tammy Faye or Jimmy.
Wow. Conservatives are 8 of the top 10.
Rush, Sean, Savage, Dr. Laura and then some guy I’ve never heard of...
sarcasm, ridicule, and satire
Agreed. Savage is popular because people are stupid.
