Cannon on Lamb

Carl Cannon writes in the latest National Journal:

    It’s not every day that Brian Lamb uses the expression “dickhead” on the air, or tells himself, “You suck.” But earlier this month, the unflappable C-SPAN anchorman and CEO found himself reading e-mails from ill-tempered citizens. The epithets, which were directed at him, were instigated by talk-radio host Michael Savage, who in his approach to public discourse is as immoderate as Lamb is restrained. It seems that Savage won a talk-radio award and sent a DVD of his remarks to the award ceremony in New York City, along with a request that C-SPAN air them. The network covers live, not canned, speeches, so it declined — only to find itself “Savaged” for its troubles.
