Michael Savage is censored during LIVE show after questioning Hillary's health. Censorship is alive and well in America
FREE Catholic Classes
Censorship is alive and well in America. Yesterday, Dr. Michael Savage's show "Savage Nation" was pulled off the air when he questioned Hillary Clinton's health. Censorship in America comes in two forms, hard and soft.
Michael Savage was censored while broadcasting live and asking about Clinton's health.
LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - Dr. Michael Savage's "Savage Nation" was removed from the air on Monday when the WABC station in New York said a "coup" was staged. The low-rated "Curtis and Cooby Show" was put on in its place.
Prior to being censored, Savage was discussing Hillary Clinton's health and the severe side effects of the Parkinson's drugs she is surely taking, if ill. Savage was angry and said he was not going to take it anymore from the people trying to destroy the country.
Shortly after that, his lived feed was cut to many other affiliates nationwide. An old episode was substituted in its place.
The show is broadcast over 400 stations nationwide and boasts about 20 million listeners. It is one of the top shows on the radio.
Obviously, Savage was sabotaged. Worse, he is not the first person to face such blatant censorship. Dr. Drew Pinsky was pulled from his show immediately after he discussed Clinton's health. Both Pinsky and Savage are doctors although in different fields.
These are blatant cases of hard censorship. While this censorship is not conducted by a government office, it is done by private firms, possibly under government pressure. Under the First Amendment, the government cannot practice active censorship of free speech. But a loophole is to censor via the firms such as radio stations, search engines, and more.
A notable case involves content published by the Islamic State, which is notorious for its slick, well-edited propaganda videos that often include the killing of prisoners. The videos become difficult to find after a few hours as they are detected and deleted across the web. Ostensibly, such videos violate terms and conditions of various hosting companies and search engines. However, the internet only works if it serves as a free medium of exchange.
When private firms are not censoring content by deleting it or pulling the plugs, they're using soft censorship. For example, YouTube will not monetize content that contains material they don't like. Neither will many other advertisers. The lack of monetization discourages news outlets from covering such topics.
Other forms of soft censorship include inflating non-issues and celebrities to flood the news cycle with hype and fluff. These serve as distractions while the real news stories of the day are either glossed over or ignored.
As it was once said, "To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."
