Late-night radio host Art Bell is suing controversial right-wing commentator Michael Savage for defamation, claiming that Savage insinuated Bell’s wife was a 10-year-old sex worker during the September 25 episode of his “Savage Nation” radio program.
“I generally avoid gun questions. I know this from the first day in radio. I learned you never do certain topics where you can destroy your show,” said Savage. “You say UFOs, you wind up in the Philippines with a 10-year-old hooker and you are off the radio after a number of years. You can’t do UFOs. That’s an in-joke, by the way, for people who understand the business. There are other topics you can’t do.”
The 71-year-old Bell met his wife when she was 22 and believes the comments were in reference to him.
I used to listen to Bell and Savage on WMBD 1470. I liked Bell better because he did shows on aliens, chem trails, shadow people and recordings from the hole into Hell.
Savage was very much the inferior broadcaster, devoted to right wing politics.
I know NOTHING of the circumstances of Bell’s marriage. But I believe him anyway and I’m rooting for him to win.
