Talk show host bounces back — but perhaps not quite so high

Last summer, DC-area talk show host Michael Graham said during the course of his show that there seems to be a “special relationship” between Islam and terrorism. The Council on American-Islam Relations (which took three months to decide that Osama Bin Laden was a bad man) set speed records in denouncing Graham, demanding he apologize and retract his statements, and be fired — not necessarily in that order.

ABC Radio cowed before CAIR, to their eternal shame, and suspended Graham. They said that he would remain off the air until he apologized. He said he stood by his words, and was soon out of a job.

The stir hardly made him a pariah, however. He snagged several temporary talk gigs around the country, affirming and repeating his charges. But he finally found a permanent job, and New England’s got him.

(Yes, the station’s a Boston station, but I pick them up at home, so I’m claiming him for the region.)

I’ve haven’t heard much of his show, and don’t know much about his style and positions apart from royally pissing of CAIR, but I’ve liked what I’ve heard so far. And anyone who CAIR apparently thinks is worse than Osama Bin Laden MUST have something good going on. I’m gonna give him some more listening.

NBC takes sides in the war on terror -- and it ain't ours
