Trump Ally Michael Savage Calls For Government Takeover Of The Media In Wake Of Virginia Shooting

Media Matters reports:

Right-wing radio host Michael Savage called for a government takeover of media following a shooting at a baseball practice of Republican members of Congress. Responding to the shooting, Savage questioned whether Trump should “take control of Twitter” and asked, “Is it time for the government to take control of the out of control pirates on social media…who do not monitor left-wing haters.” He also advocated for removing Rachel Maddow and others from the airwaves by the federal government, citing “their constant drum beat of their hatred against Trump and Republicans, calling for, among other things, resistance with their sneers every night?”

Savage is also calling for Republicans to hold a hearing on the “sneering hatred of Rachel Madcow.”
