Have fun guessing who said these things that Media Matters finds so horrible. That group is leading the surge for the purge of talk radio. Note that there are no lefty commentators on their hit list. Oh, did you hear the Michelle Malkin / Malik Shabazz exchange on the O'Reilly show. Listen here for audio (5:27 MP3) of Michelle's interview with Malik Shabazz (2 days ago). Shabazz blames the "N" word on George Washington! Another audio here (5:25 MP3) with her interview with Opio Sokoni about rappers and the "N" word.
