I thought a while about what to call this post. I guess there's no other word for it.
Please take a look at Linda's blog, these are the days - her post called A Show of Ignorance.
Her post concerns Michael Savage, whose recent rant on air included statements like, "Now you want me to tell you my opinion on autism?...a fraud, a racket" also, "...the illness du jour is autism....it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out."
In the same broadcast, he addressed asthma and minority children, saying, they got "extra welfare if they were disabled..."
Apparently Mr. Savage knows more about physical and mental illness than our doctors know.
On Linda's post you can find a link leading to a list of stations carrying Mr. Savage's syndicated program. You can also see and hear a video of his remarks. You may feel you can call or write to the stations airing his brand of venom.
Thank heaven, there don't seem to be any of those stations in NJ - but MD and DE carry him, and that's too close for my comfort.
