ABC/WMAL Fires Michael Graham

Radio Equalizer's Brian Maloney pauses from outing Air America scandal to bring us the details of Talk Radio host Michael Graham's termination.

Maloney has the full text of Graham's statement, which begins thusly: "The First Amendment and I have been evicted from ABC Radio in Washington, DC."

Any second now we will hear the first barrages of outrage from the civil liberties brigades on the Left protesting the silencing of a media voice for expressing a controversial opinion about Islam, right?


This isn't getting any less ugly. More updates here as Graham and WMAL management issue competing statements. And Stephen Bainbridge, a blogging law school professor at UCLA, says Graham has no First Amendment claim.
