Rabid radio host Michael Savage is whining that he has been banned from the Fox News Channel after he dissed Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity.
The controversial conservative ” who was fired by MSNBC in 2003 after referring to a caller to his show as “a sodomite” who should “get AIDS and die” ” recently burned more bridges by calling O’Reilly a “Leper-Con who poses as a conservative” and Hannity another Republican bootlicker who began as a Rush [Limbaugh] understudy”” on his “Savage Nation” radio show.
Savage claims that he’s been bumped off four scheduled appearances on Fox News Channel in the wake of his caustic comments.
“These two are now acting the way the mainstream media has been acting for decades, thinking they are the gatekeepers of who shall be heard in the conservative world,” Savage sputtered in a statement.
“Both are jealous of my audience and are trying to silence me because they do not want the competition.”
Savage boasted that the supposed “ban” has not affected sales of his new book, “Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder,” which debuts at No. 6 on the New York Times best-seller list next week.
