Savage Fired After Anti-Gay Remarks to Yolo County Man
Sacramento Bee ^ | July 8, 2003 | J. Freedom duLac

Posted on 07/09/2003 8:17:37 AM PDT by republicofdavis

Bob Foster, the rural Yolo County man who has taken to terrorizing TV and radio shows with prank phone calls, says his hobby "is all about getting a reaction."

But this may be more than he bargained for. On Saturday, Foster called Michael Savage's live MSNBC show to mention a favorite radio duo, Don and Mike.

Savage was apparently not amused and made a series of homophobic comments to Foster on the air.

On Monday, news broke that the controversial broadcast personality had been fired by MSNBC. And it wasn't long before Foster began to feel the wrath of Savage fans, who have taken to the Internet to spew invective his way.

"I've been getting so much hate e-mail from the Savage Nation," Foster says. "It's kind of frightening, actually. People are saying, 'Look behind your back.' And they're making anti-gay statements.

"I'm not gay. But they're calling me derogatory gay names. It goes on and on. They're disregarding what Savage said and putting the blame on me for him losing his job. It's ridiculous.

"I don't like to see a guy lose his job. But he made a mistake. His comments were way out of line."

The comments in question came after Foster called and began telling Savage about a flight he took from New York.

"Half-hour into the flight," Foster is heard saying on a tape of the incident, "I need to suggest that Don and Mike take your (inaudible) ... 'cause your teeth are real bad."

Savage fumes at the remarks and says:

"Oh, you're one of the sodomites. You should only get AIDS and die, you pig. How's that? Why don't you see if you can sue me, you pig? You got nothing better than to put me down, you piece of garbage? You've got nothing to do today? Go eat a sausage and choke on it. Get trichinosis."

Savage then asks to speak to a caller who "didn't have a nice night in the bathhouse who's angry at me today. These bums mean nothing to me."

During the exchange, somebody off-camera in Savage's studio can be heard gasping.

MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines says Savage was fired immediately after the broadcast.

"In reaction to a hostile caller, Savage made an extremely inappropriate comment," Gaines says. "The decision to cancel the program ('Savage Nation') was not difficult."

Savage remains on the radio, where his show is syndicated in more than 200 markets -- including Sacramento, where it airs on KSTE (650 AM).

KSTE's operations manager, Ken Kohl, could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

Savage, too, has been unavailable for comment.

But Foster was readily available to talk about Savage, whose TV show he'd phoned once before.

"I called him a racist that time, and he went off," Foster says. "It was such an overwhelming reaction, I had to do it again.

"Some people think I was out to get him. But I wasn't. I'm a talk-radio fan. I appreciate what he does, despite his opinions. But he was taking phone calls on national TV, and I wanted to mention Don and Mike."

Foster, who has prank-called everybody from Larry King to Don Imus, says while the response from Savage fans has been brutal ("They hate me," he says), he's also received more than a few words of support.

"I've actually gotten more mail in favor of what I did," he says. "I've been getting a lot of thank-you mail from gay-rights advocates.

"Savage definitely has issues with the gay-rights movement. What I said had nothing to do with gays. He just interjected that. He has a lot of gay protesters, and I think that was on his mind."

Cathy Renna of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation says that with gay issues in the forefront of the national news, "Savage's behavior and his attacks violate even the minimal journalistic standards and have no place on a reputable news network like MSNBC."

Savage was hired by MSNBC in early March. His Saturday talk show boosted MSNBC's ratings marginally in the 2 p.m. time slot, but in 14 outings it still ran a distant third to shows on Fox News and CNN.

Savage was apparently not amused and made a series of homophobic comments to Foster on the air.

I think this is wrong, he never got to say what Savage heard on the air, only in his ear piece.

I really want to know what the guy said to piss Savage off so much.

Savage claims he didn't know what he was saying would be on the air, even so, why would one decree that another person should "get AIDS and die." Under any circumstance. Although I listen to his program daily, I’m often mystified by the rhetoric. The statements are rather characteristic of Savage, as is his constant reference to the “Death of the White Male” (as if that is the only group negatively impacted by affirmative action).

I think this article is valuable because it shows that the middle portion of the crank call was simply in-audible. It wasn't "dumped" (deleted), it was just in-audible. Clearly the crank caller got all of what he wanted to say on the air but due to his (probably) bad phone connection, some of it wasn't intelligible.

Savage just went off on him because he's an angry person filled with hate. The call clearly didn't contain a death threat, so what Savage said was uncalled for. I'm glad to see him off the air because he only gives conservatives a bad name. I hope many of my fellow conservatives can now see that, and stop listening to his radio show too. I don't care how "right" (correct) he is on any issue; you have zero credibility in my book if you wish death on someone else just because of a disagreement in politics, or for a crank call.

It's funny, I also have listened to his show and know that he professes that he doesn't have any personal problem with gays, he just hates their political agenda. But he sure had those personal insults at the tip of his tongue to blast away with.

The queer folk were upset that Savage said this to another queer? Who cares anyway? They are all pissed off and always will be because the rest of the world won't agree that queer isn't.

But now we find out the caller was not a queer anyway? Not even part of the 2.2% of the population that's queer?

What's the big deal?

The 7 second delay allowed censors to edit out the caller's remarks. They weren't inaudable; they were deleted. Why would you think there has been no publication of those comments? They surely were captured on tape.

Well, apparently it's not just gays that are upset, but station management. I won't be surprised if he starts losing radio stations.

I think we would agree that his political opinions on gays are worthy of discussion and we would probably agree with most of them. But it's his childishness that did him in. This diatribe was worthy of a six-year-old.

this caller was part of a group that harrasses conservative radio call in shows
from what I heard this was not his first harrassing phone call to Savage
also the guys that are suppose to screen callers and shut the phone off when the conversation goes south
were asleep at the switch..
Savage counts on these guys to pull the plug in the nick of time..its what they are paid to do
and they were off eating pizza or some such thing
Thats what I heard anyway

I got tired of listening the Savage whine. He has the same temperment of the outrageous liberals who rant and rave. I don't disagree with what he says - I just don't like the way he says it, and I believe he turns more folks off than on.

I'd like to see him replaced.

Savage is an aquired taste. I can only take him for awhile. He was out of control and his remarks were stupid. However, Ms Malvo said Justice Thomas' wife should fee him things to cause his arteries to plug so he'll die. She didn't get fired. Obvious liberal bias... possibly PC fear on the part of the producers of the show Malvo was on... same for the producers of Savages'.

Really. And why isn't the media focused on what kind of loser this guy is, that he spends his time harrassing and insulting radio hosts?

This guy can just harrass people all day long? I wish Savage could sue his butt.

Oh well, we'll just have to wait for karma to kick in.

I think the context of this article clearly shows that there wasn't a death threat, or anything like that in the crank call.

Thus Savage's comments were just that, "savage". :)

Bozell: Typical - Fire Svage but Not Offensive Liberals

L. Brent Bozell, director of the Media Research center, says in his latest column that MSNBC was right to fire Michael Savage for his comments on air the other day, but Bozell wonders why some liberal reporters/commnetators who made equally offensive statements were not canned?

His examples - liberals who wished death on, or maligned conservatives on their programs:


Big mouthed Julianne Malveaux, who wished death on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas: "You know, I hope his wife feeds him lots of eggs and butter and he dies early like many black men do, of heart disease.” Others on her show protested, but Malveaux didn’t back down. "Well, that’s how I feel. He is an absolutely reprehensible person.”
She was not fired by PBS. Big surprise.


Another NPR loudmouth, Nina Totenberg wished death on Sen. Jesse Helms and his family after he suggested AIDS research was overfunded compared to more common life-threatening diseases: "I think he ought to be worried about what’s going on in the Good Lord’s mind, because if there is retributive justice, he’ll get AIDS from a transfusion, or one of his grandchildren will get it.”
She was not reprimanded, nor fired, nor did she issue an apology. Shocker!


Liberal media bigshot Bryant Gumbel, after the appearance of conservative expert Robert Knight, said of him, "What a f**king idiot!" Bozell points out that the last two words, as in the Savage caller incident, were made inaudible, but the lip-reading was unmistakeable.
Bozelll says that MSNBC was merely experimenting with "cartoon conservatism" by airing the Savage show, but that does not excuse the lack of accountability when "liberal hate speech lights up the tube."

Thats funny...MSNBC as 'reputable' hee hee.

On a more serious side. I am not much of a Savage fan. I dont disagree with the meat of most of what he says but imho he is an annoying buffoon. Just my opinion. Not sorry to see him cancelled.

Savage's show was pulled off of KRLA Radio (870 AM) in Los Angeles due to his tirade on MSNBC. The GM said he would be back on the air as soon as Savage provides assurance that this won't happen again.

I don't get it. In his opinion, Savage gives conservatives a bad name. Obviously you disagree. Why does his opinion invalidate his analysis anymore than yours?

Not necessarily. I've never thought savage is all that Conservative.

What makes his comments absolutely worthless is his agenda. he didn't want him on the air and is glad to see him off.

How objective can his analysis be?

This whole thing is crazy.

I bet Savage still gets paid by MSNBC.

I am not a big talk radio fan but my husband likes to listen to them all, and when the kids are with him, and I am not, they get an earful. I never listened to Michael Savage until last week - I thought it was so over-the-top and abusive that I had my hands over my ears trying to keep it out. I think it's really inappropriate for children, and have asked my husband not to expose the younger son to it. He informs me that the younger son loves Michael Savage.

Savage reminds me of those guys that go nuts and start shooting up the place, like the guy who went ape at the Lockheed Martin plant in Meridian, MS. Just full of rage.

I supported Savage when he first went onto MSNBC. Do a search under my name, and you'll see that for yourself, if you believe I'm lying. I know I'm right though, and I don't really care about proving it to you. (so don't bother calling me a liar on that, it won't affect me).

I listened to his radio show before and during his MSNBC days. I knew he was more of a "firebrand" then, but honestly, I didn't think he'd be so STUPID as to say something like that on MSNBC of all places!

He got what he deserved. I never heard him make similar death threats on his radio show, but if I had, I would've turned him off then too.

Again though, he got what he deserved, not only for his obvious blind hatred, but also for his sheer stupidity.

"why would one decree that another person should "get AIDS and die."

While I agree this was a tasteless thing for Savage to say, he didn't exactly 'decree' it since he does not have that power.

And by the way, since this idiot homo likes to 'get a reaction,' he got one. So why is everyone so darned upset?

He did not make any death threats. Correct your mistake or have it be understood you are purposely spreading lies.

As far as hearing similar comments, yes. Comments such as, "get AIDS and die", "Eat sausage and choke", "eat sausage and get trichinosis" or similar are figures of speech meant to insult and impart disrespect and loathing of the person theyt are directed to.

Such comments are not meant literally. It is another way to say "shut up moron" or what have you.

This whole thing is such a tivial issue and is so distorted and intellectually dishonest.

Savage (and a lot of people) always talk like this using figurative speech. In fact, that is a large part of Savage's persona.

There is a weird hysteria about certain topics and issues. If Savage had said, "eat sausage and die" only none of this would have happened.

It is all manufactured.

How so? Did the writer of the article know what the comments were? If so, why did he not publish them? And if he didn't know, how could the context show anything, one way or the other?

Death threat? What comments would cause you to mouth angry, and therefore uncensored, remarks or react with even physical assault that could not be considered a death threat?

I understand that many people hate Savage, and hatred often tempts people that hate someone to disregard or outright occlude mitigating factors in that one's actions.

So many questions; so much uninformed reacting.
