Savage Weiner soon to be sporting sign: Will work for weiners.

Dan Kennedy reports that Michael Weiner is about to become part of next months unemployment stats:

More trouble for a guy who deserves it. Gay-bashing hatemonger Michael Savage’s well-publicized firing from MSNBC isn’t his only problem: his talk-radio empire may be crumbling as well.

Ira Simmons reports on ChronWatch that, because of a contract dispute in Savage’s home base of San Francisco, The Savage Nation has been yanked off the air in New York City.

His show has also been (temporarily?) suspended in Boston at WRKO Radio (AM 680), the Boston Globe’s Mark Jurkowitz reports today. Program director Mike Elder tells Jurkowitz that he personally believes Savage is “probably a homophobe,” and that he will not tolerate an outburst like Saturday’s MSNBC incident on WRKO’s airwaves.

This is all moving in the right direction, yet the underlying hypocrisy continues to astound. Doesn’t Elder listen to his own radio station? Before MSNBC ever gave Savage a show, he was already infamous for his references to “homosexual perversion” and “Turd World nations” — references that were broadcast repeatedly to WRKO listeners since his being added to the line-up last year.

Can I get a ‘heh’.



Yeah. Like I would tell you....
