Michael Savage, Crybaby

Radio host Michael Savage’s suit against Islamic group in court

Savage sued the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, after it posted on its Web site a 4-minute clip of Savage’s two-hour show on Oct. 29 in which the talk show host called the Quran a “book of hate.”

CAIR argues:

But the judge said she found “persuasive” CAIR’s arguments that free speech protections allowed the organization to use the clip to criticize and comment on Savage’s views even if the content is used for fundraising purposes.

I agree with CAIR.

This is both a free speech and a Fair Use issue. On both counts, Savage is wrong and the suit should have been thrown out. The judge is being extremely lenient here.
