Shock jock casualties
Syndicated radio host Savage was one of 22 people "blacklisted" in Britain on May 5, 2009, when the country released a list of "hate promoters" who have been banned in Britain since October. Savage said he is planning to sue the country, claiming he had been defamed and endangered by the decision made by Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary.
After hiring Savage in March 2003, MSNBC fired the conservative talk show host on July 7 that year for telling a gay caller, ''You should only get AIDS and die, you pig.''
Savage has continued his national radio show, where he continues to speak out about homosexuals, illegal immigration, and Islamic extremists.
