Conservative radio host says he was fired mid-show for criticizing Trump


A talk radio host said he was fired from a rightwing radio station – mid-show – for criticizing Donald Trump.

Craig Silverman was hosting his eponymous show on 710 KNUS, a Denver station owned by the conservative Salem Media Group, on Saturday when the station abruptly cut to a network news report.

According to Silverman, the program director entered the studio and told him: “You’re done.”

Quote:

Silverman had been in the middle of a segment about Roy Cohn, Trump’s controversial former lawyer who died in 1986.
Quote:

Silverman, a rare critic of Trump on the conservative network, said he had run into problems with executives at the station due to his refusal to “toe strict Trump party line”.
Quote:

“I was frustrated that we couldn’t talk about the facts of the impeachment case and it all came to a head as I was excoriating Donald Trump on my show yesterday,” Silverman [said]
Quote:

"if nobody on radio talks about it, how are the American people going to understand?"
This is why we are so divided as a country. the public rarely gets the complete truth

I will agree that the public rarely gets the complete truth.
This maroon was fired because he violated station policy by appearing without their consent on a competitors station. And stated on the show he would do it again. In other words, he got fired for contract violations.

Quote:

“We asked Craig to not appear there because we consider him an important part of our team and we prefer that he not work for a competitor,” Taylor explained. “He decided it was important to work across town, and so on his program on Saturday, he announced that. And that’s what prompted our decision to take him off air.”

How funny . . .

A poster that posts mostly propaganda needs to go to a far leftist "news" site in England to find a story that casts US conservatives (especially supporters of Trump) in a negative light, just to frame the story in the narrative that the USA is divided because we don't get the complete news . . .

The irony is gaggingly ironic.

This is a classic example of why most posters on this forum do not take you seriously. It is right there in the article that the station let him go for a willful violation of the contract, yet you omit that important detail in an effort to vilify anyone that does not support the Never Trump agenda. But why am I not surprised? You are just following in the footsteps of the MSM which does EXACTLY the same thing.
