WOR 710 in New York City - Home to Michael Savage

By now you know probably know what Michael Savage said about autism. Savage is carried in NYC for three hours a day, five days a week, on WOR 710 AM.

Let's meet some of the friendly people at WOR:

According to the website, Jerry Crowley is the Vice President and General Manager.

According to his bio, Jerry has been with WOR for 13 years, most recently as Vice President and Director of Sales for WOR and the WOR Radio Network. Commenting on his promotion to Vice President/ General Manager of WOR, Jerry said, "This is the highlight of my career. WOR is a heritage, legendary radio station that has affected the lives of millions of listeners, while providing entertainment and information for 85 years. I can think of no greater honor or responsibility than being General Manager of this outstanding property."

It's not known how Jerry Crowley feels about this:
"You know what autism is? I'll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out. That's what autism is."

If you would like to express your opinion on what autism is, this is the WOR General Phone Number: (212) 642-4500

According to the website:
"To ask a question or make a comment about WOR’s Programming in general, please email Scott Lakefield, Assistant Program Director, at"


"To send an email to the WOR webmaster, or to ask a general question about WOR, please email Webmaster Chris Thompson at He will forward your question to the appropriate person at WOR if needed."

Just a reminder:

"Now, you want me to tell you my opinion on autism, since I'm not talking about autism? A fraud, a racket. For a long while, we were hearing that every minority child had asthma. Why did they sudden -- why was there an asthma epidemic amongst minority children? Because I'll tell you why: The children got extra welfare if they were disabled, and they got extra help in school. It was a money racket. Everyone went in and was told [fake cough], "When the nurse looks at you, you go [fake cough], 'I don't know, the dust got me.' " See, everyone had asthma from the minority community. That was number one.

Now, the illness du jour is autism. You know what autism is? I'll tell you what autism is. In 99 percent of the cases, it's a brat who hasn't been told to cut the act out. That's what autism is.

What do you mean they scream and they're silent? They don't have a father around to tell them, "Don't act like a moron. You'll get nowhere in life. Stop acting like a putz. Straighten up. Act like a man. Don't sit there crying and screaming, idiot."

Autism -- everybody has an illness. If I behaved like a fool, my father called me a fool. And he said to me, "Don't behave like a fool." The worst thing he said -- "Don't behave like a fool. Don't be anybody's dummy. Don't sound like an idiot. Don't act like a girl. Don't cry." That's what I was raised with. That's what you should raise your children with. Stop with the sensitivity training. You're turning your son into a girl, and you're turning your nation into a nation of losers and beaten men."

OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma church canceled a controversial gun giveaway for teenagers at a weekend youth conference. Windsor Hills Baptist had planned to give away a semiautomatic assault rifle until one of the event's organizers was unable to attend.

The church’s youth pastor, Bob Ross, said it’s a way of trying to encourage young people to attend the event. The church expected hundreds of teenagers from as far away as Canada. “We have 21 hours of preaching and teaching throughout the week,” Ross said.

A video on the church Web site shows the shooting competition from last year’s conference. A gun giveaway was part of the event last year. This year, organizers included it in their marketing.

“I don’t want people thinking ‘My goodness, we’re putting a weapon in the hand of somebody that doesn’t respect it who are then going to go out and kill,'” said Ross. “That’s not at all what we’re trying to do.”

Ross said the conference isn’t all about guns, but rather about teens finding faith.

I beg to differ, Thers. THIS is the Dumbest Idea Ever.

Russians Stranded on Ice Floe


Twenty Russian scientists are to be evacuated from their camp on a drifting ice-floe in the Arctic after it started disintegrating sooner than expected.

The Russians had set up research station "North Pole 35" on the floe last September when it measured a safe five kilometres long and three kilometres wide, and their original plan was to stay on it until this September.

But after enduring the permanent night of the Arctic winter and surviving the threat of polar bears, the scientists now find that their temporary home has shrunk to just 600m by 300m and faces complete break-up as it drifts towards a current known to contain relatively warm waters.

Bears are the true enemy.
