Savage savages Hannity: "I Am Heir Apparent to the Afternoon Drive"Submitted by fightapathy on Thu, 09/26/2013 - 08:15
According to this morning's Politico, evening radio talk show host Michael Savage declared, "I am heir apparent to the afternoon drive on the east coast and around America" and will take over Sean Hannity's 3 p.m. time slot on Cumulus stations, which I presume includes the valuable WABC market in New York City.
So, combining this with Hannity's loss of his coveted 9 p.m. slot on Fox News, are we witnessing the demolition of the Hannity empire, founded as it was on ten years of daily, incessant defense of the Iraq invasion? Because that's what it looks like.
Regarding Fox News, pundits claimed his dramatic fall in ratings was due to his prophecy that the apocalyptic Bishop Willard Romney would win the Presidential elections. When that did not materialize after months of advertising the Bishop, his credibility was irreparably shattered.
Of course, anyone who pushed for a delusional doomsdayer like Bishop Willard, who was convinced he was "The White Horse" of Joseph Smith's Mormon prophecy, deserves to be stripped of all rights to lecture the public on anything.
Anyway, as I said, Hannity's pig-headed defense of our destruction of Iraq is what drove me from tuning into his program. Having to listen to three hours every single day about the evil of Saddam, his rape rooms, weapons of mass destruction that were cleverly disguised, and state sponsorship of al-Qaeda was too much.
I became convinced Hannity was paid by the DOD to propagandize on their behalf. It seemed impossible that anyone would say the same things over and over and over with such conviction and NOT be in the pay and service of another power.
The selling of Bishop Willard may have been the last straw, but Hannity's credibility was little better than Tokyo Rose.
Question is, what's Michael Savage like? I've never heard his program. Is he another "our military is God's gardening tool" radio host?
