More about the Protest
I see that the networks did report on the protest against Michael Savage and his rant about autism and asthmatic children. I also learned that in Mississippi, one network (seven stations) dropped his show entirely. Just wish more would do that.
Already there is a cry about freedom of speech. I'm all for freedom of speech. What would I do if it weren't for freedom of speech? But there is such a thing as discretion, and a harangue against children, or against anyone who is suffering from a physical problem, just isn't done.
Here is a link my daughter, Ruth, from New York, sent me today. it includes a short video of the protest and a doctor speaking briefly about diagnosing autism.
