More Good News!
Boston's WRKO was the first radio station to take Savage Nation off the air following MSNBC's firing of Michael Savage.
Salem Communications shelved the show at three of its stations, in a move that surprised some because of Salem's Christian orientation.
And Michael Savage Sucks.com won over Talk Radio Network in the domain-name litigation, with arbitration ruling in the website's favor.

It's all over between Michael Savage and MSNBC. The network announced that it had fired Savage for the vicious homophobic statements he made on his July 5 show. You can read the transcript of his comments here. Sample: "Oh, you're one of the sodomites! You should only get AIDS and die, you pig!"
MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines said that Weiner's comments were "extremely inappropriate" and said the decision to fire Savage was "an easy one."
Savage blames the telephone call from the "sodomite" on someone from a competing talk show who "personally attacked" Savage, if you can believe that. Sheesh. But he actually did apologize to his "many gay listeners."
Funny, isn't it, how a guy who attacks just about every non-male, non-white, non-straight, non-U.S.-citizen out there can be so hurt . Pardon me while I get my gag reflex under control.
