Michael Savage: Talk Radio ‘Committing Suicide’

Radio host Michael Savage warned a colleague Friday that many conservatives on air are “committing suicide” by incessantly criticizing Barack Obama, according to a story at, a conservative news website.

“Many people on the conservative side of the dial are making the same mistakes now that the liberals made when Bush was in power,” Savage told Aaron Klein of WABC 770 AM in New York. “[Radio America] went bankrupt, why? Because all they did was … Bush bashing, and they were just crazy in the Bush bashing. Boring, boring. How much could you listen to? It wasn’t even clever Bush bashing.

“This is what’s going on now with the conservatives,” Savage continued. “They’re committing suicide. Just attacking Obama – although he deserves it – is not good radio.”

Savage explained, “At the end of the day, Aaron, it’s like a good teacher. Who were your best professors? They were the ones who could get up and tell you a story and make you smile and in the midst of it teach you something.

“Remember one thing,” Savage told Klein, “radio is primarily an entertainment medium. It was not created to be the voice of the Republican Party or the Democrat Party.”

Savage, who is also a bestselling author, appeared on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” to celebrate joining the WABC lineup today and tout his new book, “Train Tracks: Family Stories for the Holidays.”
