Ever Inaccurate Michael Savage revels in Bernie Ward's arrest
(images: Michael Savage, carrying a purse and hanging with Alan Ginsburg in the 60s , and today)
Savage had some good taste, saying he prayed Ward was innocent for the sake of Ward's "five children." (He has four.)
Then, he played the song "Thank Heaven for Little Girls"...bad taste..
But how can people ever trust him?
Yesterday he claimed the Omaha shooter was black and that the press wouldn't release his name the same way they would for a white shooter.
The shooter was white. Savage never corrected or retracted that falsehood. He has a picture of the man on his website, but again, never corrects the lie he put out on the airwaves Wednesday.
And, he's continually trying to raise money for his lawsuit against CAIR, but never says what happened to the $900K he raised for his Paul Revere Society, which has had its tax exemption pulled by the IRS. Why isn't he using that to fund his case?
Why hasn't the IRS or the State Attorney General Jerry Brown filed charges? If I were late on my tax filings, I'd bet I'd hear about it. It always struck me as strange that Savage, a conservative, donated $5,600 to the liberal Brown's campaign.
How do Savage fans listen to this tripe day after day and never call him on it??
Today on his site, Savage has KGO-AM and he broadcast a KCBS-AM podcast on the air. Isn't this he same thing he's suing CAIR for: appropriation of his broadcast content? Is this any less fair use than CAIR's use of his content?
Then, ever classless, he spent time trying to get a Las Vegas restaurant owner to get him a reservation for after the fight Saturday and promising to give them free publicity. How sleazy can he get and how can stations allow him to broadcast this garbage?
