More On Savage

I've been following the aftermath of shock jock Michael Savage's comments on autism last week. I'm impressed with the number of bloggers who have shared my anger. I'm unsurprised at Talk Radio Network's attempt to spin Savage's comments into some kind of alternate universe. I'm nauseated after learning about Savage's previous comments on disabilities. And I'm amazed that the controversy has hit the floor of Congress:

And now advertisers and radio stations are dropping Savage's show. But I stick by what I said earlier this week. Even if Talk Radio Network fires Savage, he'll be picked up again in a few months by another radio network. It's prejudice for profit.

And yes, the title of this blog post was an intentional pun.
