On Monday September 26, top-rated conservative talk show host Michael Savage was in the middle of his normal show, The Savage Nation, speaking his mind on politics, when something funny happened as he began to talk about Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton‘s health.
As he discussed the potential that Clinton may have developed Parkinson’s disease, he was alerted that his show had been pulled off the air in New York by WABC radio. The show was then replaced with the Curtis and Kuby Show.
Listeners who noticed the on-air change chimed in on the event, calling it “sabotage.”
Savage wasted little time calling out New York’s WABC radio to the rest of his syndicated audience. During this he noticed that his live feed had then been cut, and that a replay of an older episode began to replace his current live show.
Following the newest shutdown of open dialogue, Savage, an avid Donald Trump supporter, took his comments to twitter stating:
I’VE BEEN SABOTAGED ON AIR. TO DESTROY SUPPORT FOR TRUMP. MORE LATER

With an audience that covers over 400 syndicated radio stations, and 20 million listeners a week, it is safe to say that Savage and The Savage Nation listeners will have their voices heard by each station that chose to silence him.
It is unfortunate that though these radio stations are private entities and have the right to decide what product they allow on their airwaves, they are also not strong enough in their convictions to allow a simple questioning or attack against Clinton. If you didn’t believe that the majority of the media is in the bag for Clinton before, actions like this may start to make you wonder.
