First, let me pause to laugh my ass off here for just a moment: hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! okay, now I feel better.
Yes, my friends, the PigMan was forced to resign from his "new" job at ESPN for hateful, ignorant, racial speech. When will these networks learn that just because someone does well on Radio, that does NOT mean they will do well on Television? MSNBC learned their lesson with squawker Michael Savage, and now ESPN has learned their lesson with Limbaugh...or at least we can hope.
You see, a huge chunk of the audiences on the radio for both the PigMan and Savage are lower to middle class white males who are fundamentally religious and ultra right-wing politically. These are people who LOVE to hear slurs about gays and blacks. It empowers them. However, the television market consists of all races, creeds, religions and lifestyles.
A word to the wise, keep people like the Pigman and Savage where they belong: in their tiny market on the radio!
