AP reports that
MSNBC on Monday fired Michael Savage for anti-gay comments.
The popular radio talk show host who did a weekend TV show for the cable channel referred to an unidentified caller to his show Saturday as a “sodomite” and said he should “get AIDS and die.”
“His comments were extremely inappropriate and the decision was an easy one,” MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines said.
Now, isn’t this like firing Howard Stern because engages in inappropriate sexual innuendo? I mean, isn’t this precisely the kind of inflammatory rhetoric that made Savage attractive to MSNBC to begin with?
