Michael Savage is Lying and Here’s How I know.
For those not in the know, or the care, Conservative talk radio host Michael Savage (whose real last name is Wiener) was supposedly attacked at a restaurant in Marin County, California on Tuesday night.
According to Savage’s attorney, Daniel Horowitz, the man shouted something at Savage and made fun of his legal name before knocking him to the ground. Another restaurant customer, who intervened in the fracas, was punched in the face.
In a statement released Wednesday morning to the 415 Media blog, Savage said the man called out to him: “Are you Michael Weiner?” (referring to his given name). Savage said he turned to the man and said, “Go away, I don’t know who you are.”
Couple things here.
First off, Savage has consistently made claims to this local blog, which are often not true.
The blog has a loyal Bay Area readership of anywhere between 5 and 10,000 people, of which I am one. Yet Savage consistently plants stories to this blog because he’s literally that vain, and needs to be recognized in the place he lives.
Truth? No region of America cares less about Savage, or radio, than the Bay Area. Few under 50 know who he is, and it kills him.
While working for the radio show, I know without question Savage not only paid the blogger, but also took him out for meals in order to grease the skids. Both Savage, and the blogger, despise talk show host Ronn Owens, so Michael uses the site to bash a local enemy, someone most people also don’t know.
As ridiculous as this may sound, it is actually true. I point this out only to show you the lengths he will go to serve such a minor end.
Which takes us to our next part, which is where the meat is.
Two weeks ago conservative talk-host Mark Levin made national news when he apparently influenced President Donald Trump, in the dumbest of ways, with regard to the “wiretapping” story. Team Trump is now walking that one down.
As soon as I heard about it I thought to myself, “this must be killing Michael.” And it is.
See, Savage despises Levin, and vice versa. I guess it’s like in sports when the two best are rivals? Well in this case it’s the two biggest assholes. Truly hate each other, and I’ve heard them both talk about it off the air. Their corporate bosses have had to intervene.
Levin became a national story because of Trump’s moronic decision to repeat his stupid claims. Levin being the big dog nationally is something Savage cannot deal with it; cannot live with.
So what happens? He takes some bullshit story that happened to him and made it into something it’s not. How do I know this?
Because working for Savage, I can assure you he exaggerates and “blows up” everything. EVERY. THING. Every story, every relationship, every thing he thinks of, every thing he touches. Relationships don’t last. Stations don’t last. Friendships don’t last. Nothing lasts. Because he’s a compulsive person, especially when it comes to dishonesty.
Do I think Savage had an altercation with a man in Marin? I sure do.
Do I think the man punched Savage, another man as well, was then released by police, and is also filing suit? No. I don’t think that happened.
What I think happened is what always happens: Michael Savage had an argument with a person, started by whom, I don’t know. It escalated because Savage is such a douchebag, and little to nothing happened, which Savage then exaggerated to get himself into the news.
Michael Savage lies to make himself look more important.
In the Bay Area, the place where tech was practically invented, every person is on their phone nonstop. So where’s the video? Oh, right, it doesn’t exist.
Because you can’t film what didn’t happen.
This story did not happen.
But this one did.
