San Francisco’s very own apostle of bigoted ranting just lost another one.
The Hate Hurts America Community and Interfaith Coalition (HHA) today announced that Sam’s Club, a division of Wal-Mart and one of the nation’s largest warehouse clubs, has joined a growing list of companies that have stopped advertising or refuse to place their ads on Michael Savage’s “Savage Nation” radio program.
HHA, a group of religious and civic organizations seeking to challenge hate speech on talk radio, was formed as a result of Savage’s rhetorical attacks on religious and ethnic minorities. Coalition members are calling on advertisers nationwide to stop airing commercials on his nationally-syndicated program
That campaign, also waged vigorously by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has so far had a fair degree of success.
But why should Savage care, so long as KNEW (“910 Talk Radio”) stands proudly by him?
