(WASHINGTON, D.C., 12/3/07) – The Hate Hurts America Community and Interfaith Coalition (HHA) today announced that Universal Orlando Resorts has joined a growing list of advertisers 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 recent rhetorical attacks on Muslims, Islam and the Quran, Islam’s revealed text. Coalition members are calling on advertisers nationwide to stop airing commercials on Savage’s nationally-syndicated program.
