Bully nips back

Michael Savage, like many bullies, can't take it when the people he kicks stand up and talk back. The Muslim civil rights organization CAIR has been encouraging the hate radio host's advertisers to pay attention to what's being said with their money. Quite a few don't like the racial and religious slurs they've been hearing and have canceled their sponsorships.

Now Savage is suing CAIR for publicizing recordings of his on-air attacks on the Quran and Muslims. Hey buddy -- the name for the thing you do is broadcasting. You say it; you are stuck with it. That's how broadcasting works.

CAIR responds more judiciously, calling Savage's law suit

"bizarre, sloppy and baseless."

"We expect to prevail based on the facts, the law and the Constitution," Amina Rubin said.
