The right-wing radio host Melanie Morgan has been let go from her job at KSFO radio after 14 years on-air. The station decided not to renew her contract in an effort to cut costs. Morgan said of the firing, "The ratings were terrific and I got to connect with a lot of passionate conservative causes, and I’m really grateful for that. I don’t know what’s going to happen to the show, I don’t know what’s going to happen to KSFO."
Ummmm....Mel, if the ratings were terrific they would have kept you and fired someone with lower ratings. That's kind of how the radio business works, dear. Perhaps, you were let go because barely anyone was listening, and in a field dominated by shows just like yours, you weren't very good. Or perhaps, the owners of the station got a conscience and decided they no longer wanted to be responsible for the person who said the following:
On Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: "We’ve got a bull’s-eye painted on her big, wide laughing eyes."
On NY Times editor Bill Keller: "If he were to be tried and convicted of treason, yes, I would have no problem with him being sent to the gas chamber."
On Holocaust survivor George Soros: "cheerfully and willingly went to work for the Nazis in order to further his own career."
There is much, much more and Media Matters has the rest here.
