WND Lets Savage Bash His Former Radio Syndicator Some More
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has clearly taken sides with Michael Savage against his radio show's former syndicator, Talk Radio Network. Now, WND is letting Savage launch more attacks on TRN.

In an unbylined Oct. 22 article, WND touts Savage returning to the air with his new syndicator, Cumulus Media Networks. It also drops this claim:

With his new syndicator, Savage told WND he expects to have more freedom to say what he wants.

TRN regularly censored him, seemingly at random, he said, making him feel like someone was looking over his shoulder.

“I don’t think anyone’s heard me do a full radio show,” he said. “It was a butchered show.”

It's unclear what Savage means by that, since his show is mostly live. How does TRN censor a live show? WND doesn't explain.

There's no evidence WND contacted TRN for a response, which is what a responsible news organization would have done.

We've previously noted how unusual it is for WND to have thrown TRN under the bus to side with Savage. TRN was founded by accused cult leader Roy Masters, whose Oregon ranch was the first home of WND upon its founding in the late 1990s. Masters' son, Mark Masters, currently operates TRN.
