The other night, The Cricket was flipping through the presets on his car radio – listening, as usual, for a fun song for the drive home. (Even media elites can listen to so much NPR in a day.)
Hitting the button tuned to tuned to 103.1 FM brought a surprise. Instead of hearing some '80s pop classic, there was a blast of some of the most obnoxious, racist and hateful invective you may ever hear coming out of a car speaker.
The man spewing all this bile was nationally syndicated talk-radio host Michael Savage.
