Advertisers Drop Michael Savage Radio Show Over Autism Remarks

2008_07_savage.jpgA week after conservative radio host Michael Savage made controversial remarks suggesting a child with autism was really "a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out," advertisers and some radio stations are distancing themselves from his show. According to Newsday, "Radio Shack, Aflac and Sears say that their advertisements should not have appeared during Savage's show and will not for the foreseeable future," while Anheuser-Busch explained "it has never advertised on Savage's program." And Mississippi network of radio stations SuperTalk dropped the program, with its president explaining, "We're a conservative network. I just didn't see why a person with so much hatred had a place in our network."
