Conservative Denver Radio Host Fired Midshow After Criticizing Trump


"I'm the smartest, best looking and most important President the US has ever had" - Donald J. tRump

The Wrap | Jeremy Fuster | November 16, 2019

“I cannot and will not toe strict Trump party line,” Craig Silverman tweeted

Conservative Denver radio station 710 KNUS fired host and former district attorney Craig Silverman during his broadcast Saturday after he criticized Donald Trump, according to the Denver Post.

Silverman told the paper he was taken off the air for replaying a 2015 interview with Trump surrogate Roger Stone, who was found guilty on seven federal charges on Friday including witness tampering.

In the interview, Silverman told Stone that one of his biggest concerns with Trump was his connection to Roy Cohn, who assisted Joseph McCarthy in the House Committee on Un-American Activities in the 1950s and later served as Trump’s personal lawyer. The Colorado radio station promptly took Silverman off the air and removed the webpage for his show from their site.



“Sad day for Colorado and the First Amendment,” Colorado State Rep. Dylan Roberts tweeted about the dismissal. “Toe the Trump line instead of talking about law and facts if you want a show? ‘Sad…as our President would say.'”... https://www.thewrap.com/conservative-denver-radio-host-fired-midshow-after-criticizing-trump-craig-silverman/

2. Left Leaning Talk Radio is bad for business.

For every 100 right leaning thinkers on social media that have had their accounts suspended or demonized?

5. Craig Silverman isn't a conservative.

He's left leaning host but was willing to call out Obama when he went socialist.

4. You have no free speech rights while on someone elses dime.

You have the right to speak as your employer sees fit, or to quit, or to get fired.

6. Lefty never seems to understand what freedom of speech means.

Which shows that lefty doesn’t understand fundamental issues about our Constitution and government.

The freedom of speech provided in the Constitution is between the government and the people. It has zero to do with private businesses.

This has nothing to do with the First Amendment. Anyone who thinks it doesn’t has no understanding of our Constitution.

7. Silverman will be on Reliable Sources today

 

A word of warning to all: he is a big man with a weird voice.

He’s been around Denver for years on the radio. He is an independent who leans right.

9. It has a strange bunch of characters for sure

 

Gunny Bob, Peter Boyle’s, Dan Caplis, Heck-of-a-job Brownie, etc.

The worst by far is Caplis. Ironically Silverman’s ex radio partner.

10. It's been 20+ years, but I remember Boyle & Caplis. Silverman too, but I don't think he was in

radio then. Other notables from my CO days were Lewis & Floorwax, Lou from Littleton, and the Scott Hastings/Dave Logan show (I listened to KOA most of the time, obviously)
