NY Times profiles Michael Savage: Fair and Balanced!
Wonder of wonders, the New York Times on Monday December 17 published a lengthy -- and surprisingly positive -- feature article on controversial radio talk show host Michael Savage, complete with a not unflattering photograph of Savage broadcasting his show.
"Boycotted Radio Host Remains Unbowed," as the prominent Arts section feature is titled, begins by noting that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has called on advertisers to boycott Savage's radio show, currently syndicated on over 400 stations nationwide. The article reports on Savage's response, a lawsuit against CAIR for alleged copyright infringement "on his broadcast by using his words, in effect, to raise money."
"Mr. Savage can be surprisingly unintimidating in person, standing 5-foot-7 and looking, on this day, like he had sprung from an L. L. Bean catalog in a bright orange corduroy shirt, black fleece vest and tan chinos, with a miniature poodle at his feet. He can also project charm, insisting that a visitor just off a cross-country flight pause to have a turkey sandwich with potato salad."
