NewsBusters Nonsense, Michael Savage Edition
Topic: NewsBusters

-- Tim Graham notes that Al Franken's PAC is "plunking some impressive bucks for Democratic House challengers in the Gopher State." Meanwhile, we don't recall reading anywhere on NewsBusters about the "educational" group run by Michael Savage, the Paul Revere Society, reportedly losing its nonprofit status. He's got a much bigger audience than Franken, after all.

-- Greg Sheffield complains that CNN's Wolf Blitzer didn't challenge a Syrian cabinet minister's likening of Israel to the Nazis. How does Sheffield feel about Michael Savage's claim that Blitzer is "the type who would have let children into the gas chamber in order to stay alive an extra day"?

-- Graham takes a whack at Washington Post reporter Thomas Ricks' new book, "Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq." Oops, wait -- Graham just takes whacks at Ricks, calling him not just "a garden-variety liberal reporter, but a pushy progressive." He says nothing about the actual book itself. (No direct Michael Savage reference here, unless you want to talk about the conservative tendency to attack the messenger, a skill at which Savage is much farther out there than Graham.)
