Local radio demagogue finds new way to offend people
Comedian Michael Weiner, who broadcasts nationally as the right-wing radio talk show foamer Michael Savage, has added parents of autistic children to the long list of people he has insulted, flamed and defamed in his long career. The former Alan Ginsburg groupie said Monday he was trying to “boldly awaken” parents who refrain from disciplining their autistic children. This week he refused to bow to the demands for an apology, though he admitted his assertion that 99 percent of autism cases were misdiagnosed was “hyperbole.” He has already lost one sponsor over the incident.
Weiner’s home base is local station KNEW at 910 AM.
