Michael Savage Dropped from 910 KNEW

Michael Savage
Earlier today a blog called Patriot Axom(Site now infinitely redirects to nothing, presumably down.)issued a statement saying that Conservative talk-show host Michael Savage had been taken "off the air" from his San Francisco-based flagship station, Talk 910 KNEW.  Luckily the crows at Huffpost and Think Progress immediately picked up on the story and made sure to include remarks about how this is another good way to stop the spread of Michael Savage's hate filled rhetoric. Typical, but expected. The left must be elated that a blow to conservative talk-radio has been struck without having to wait for the "Fairness Doctrine" to get passed.

This was the statement issued on KNEW's blog: (Link is no longer working)
I’m going to answer the very first question many of you have.
“Why did you take Michael Savage off the air?”

Here’s your no-spin direct answer; we have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information. The Savage Nation does not fit into that vision.

For those of you in the San Fransisco Area, you can still hear Michael Savage on  KSTE 650.
