Recurring Themes

Michael Savage is not a local right wing media squawker, but he is carried on WTMJ, home of the bellicose Charlie Sykes. There is also a recurring theme with TMJ airing people who excel in offensive, bigoted, hate speech. Whallah! is not the only one to notice this. From the Shepherd Express:

Syndicated right-wing radio host Michael Savage—whose program is aired late at night on WTMJ radio—is suing those who complain about his lunatic rants about Muslims. (Here's one example: "I don't wanna hear one more word about Islam. Take your religion and shove it up your behind. I'm sick of you.") While the free speech advocate is "complaining about others quoting him" in his lawsuit, as The New York Times points out, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking for advertisers to pull their spots from Savage's show. But we've got to ask: Does WTMJ really want to create profits that are built on hatred? And does Milwaukee need bigots like Savage on our public airwaves?

Indeed, some good questions. Too bad they will never be answered.
