right-wing host dropped for anti-lesbian comment

this from talk-radio news…
The “worse” talk radio host of the week is Michael Savage. Hollywood’s Creative Artists Agency has dropped its representation of Savage two days after announcing that it had signed him as a client. CAA’s dumping of Savage followed an outburst on February 26, over singer Melissa Etheridge’s Academy Awards acceptance speech, in which she thanked her wife. Savage said, “I don’t like a woman married to a woman. It makes me want to puke. … I want to vomit when I hear it. I think it’s child abuse.”
-as a side note his real last name isn’t “savage” it’s weiner. 😉

    Ads Pulled From Coulter Site
    By: Nicole Belle @ 5:09 AM – PST
    CNN:

    At least three major companies want their ads pulled from Ann Coulter’s Web site, following customer complaints about the right-wing commentator referring to Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards as a “faggot.”

    Verizon, Sallie Mae and Georgia-based NetBank each said they didn’t know their ads were on AnnCoulter.com until they received the complaints.

    A diarist at the liberal blog DailyKos.com posted contact information for dozens of companies with ads on Coulter’s site after the commentator made her remarks about Edwards at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington on Friday.
    “One of the best ways to communicate one’s distaste for Coulter’s repeated incidents of hate speech is to respectfully but firmly let her advertisers know you are deeply troubled by their indirect support of bigotry through their advertising on Coulter’s Web site,” the blogger VolvoDrivingLiberal wrote on DailyKos.com on Sunday.
