I'm actually quite familiar with John and Ken. I'm not a fan of their show but they are reasonable people compared to the lunacy that is Michael Savage. They are conservative on most things but moderate on others.Acid-tongued, conservative talk show host Michael Savage has been silenced in the very city he loves to whack -- San Francisco. The syndicated host of "Savage Nation'' has been dropped from local Clear Channel station KNEW-910 AM.
According to the station's Web site, "We have decided to go in a different philosophical and ideological direction, featuring more contemporary content and more local information."
Savage is being replaced during the 3 p.m.-7 p.m. drive-time slot by John and Ken, a couple of younger and conservative-leaning Southern California talkers. A Wikipedia check shows they are pro-death penalty, anti-tax, anti-illegal immigration and pro-gays in the military.
So what kicked Savage? The non-existant "Fairness Doctrine"? Obama pulling the plug? Nope. Not even close. Savage has been steadily losing advertisers as those advertisers want to distance themselves from Savage's hate-filled rhetoric.
It's called the "free market" folks. In order for his show to make money, he has to keep advertisers. The money people behind his show decided to go a more profitable route and go with less-divisive hosts. So no whining. Either you are for the free market, or you are not. This was a business decision, not a liberal conspiracy.
