Summary: Michael Savage called a drunken stripper a "drunken slut stripping whore."

Media Matters criticized radio talk show host Michael Savage for describing a drunken stipper as a "slut" and a "whore", but failed to note that Savage is not a journalist, has no degree in journalism, and was exercising his first amendment right to freedom of speech.

Just days prior, Media Matters criticized Savage for referring to the African American stripper as a "dirty, venomous black stripper" and for calling supremacists with brown skin "brown supremacists".

From the April 17 edition of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: Now, we got the Durham dirt-bag case. The Durham dirt-bag case disgusts me to my core. Here, you have a drunken slut stripping whore accusing men of raping her when there is absolutely no evidence of such a rape other than what comes out of that filthy mouth of hers. And what really gets to me, here, is not only the piling on by the vermin in the media -- the spineless eunuchs in the media who are taking the side of an unknown accuser without ever having to ask her one question. What kind of system do we have that anyone can scream rape and not have to show her face, not answer to the public. And, yet, those she accuses are suddenly guilty until they're proven innocent. This is all the product of the out-of-control lesbian feminist movement.
