I stream WCBM out of Baltimore while I'm working. I like the morning commentators and the staff. Among other things, they are very pro-Israel and very hard on radical Islam. This brings them to the attention of CAIR occasionally. Recently, Nino posted a commentary on Islam at the WCBM website that resulted in one of CAIR's protest letters. Unfortunately, it got out in the blogosphere that CAIR's pressure caused them to take the piece down. This surprised me - they've not buckled to CAIR pressure before. Turns out that, indeed, it's not true. Here is the station's response to the accusation:
Recently, Talk Radio WCBM reposted an article on our station website, www.wcbm.com by Audrey Russo. The article was entitled"Islam: The Only Religion That Tells Everyone On EARTH What To Do". Although WCBM was contacted by a local group and asked to remove the article, we did not comply with that request. Instead, all articles posted on wcbm.com expire after 48 hours and are not archived. WCBM believes in freedom of speech and as a talk radio station, we welcome dialogue and opinions from all perspectives.
