OfficeMax drops Michael Savage ads over anti-Islam bias
by Bend Weekly News Sources

WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today announced that OfficeMax, a leading office products retailer, has joined a growing list of companies that have stopped advertising on Michael Savage's nationally-syndicated radio program because of the host's anti-Muslim views.

CAIR recently reported that Savage, whose "The Savage Nation" airs on more than 300 radio stations nationwide, screamed attacks on Muslims, Islam and the Quran, Islam's revealed text, during his October 29, 2007, program.

The Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group called on radio listeners of all faiths to contact companies that advertise on Savage's program to express their concerns about the host's anti-Muslim bigotry.

Companies that have dropped ads from Savage's program include Citrix Systems Inc., a global leader in application delivery infrastructure.

"It is encouraging that companies nationwide are choosing not to associate with Mr. Savage's hatred and bigotry," said CAIR Communications Coordinator Amina Rubin. "Freedom of speech includes the right not to subsidize hate."

Rubin thanked OfficeMax for its prompt response to Muslim concerns. She said CAIR is asking other Savage advertisers to follow that company's example.

  • MexicanPower your arrogant ignorance is astounding. You are pretending to have knowledge where you have clearly none. You have obviously never heard the Savage Nation Show.

  • Turn the damn channel if you don't like what he has the say. This is America, and not Iran. You muslims have no problem watching US American soldiers being decapitated on your Arab news stations, yet you have a problem with Savage voicing his opinion peacefully? STOP SMOKING YOUR CAMEL DUNG AND GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR COUNTRY!
