Before the airing of WABC’s the Rudy Giuliani Show this Thursday, the host was angered by a disclaimer that aired beforehand to distance the station from his baseless claims of mass voter fraud should be regurgitate them once again.
“The views, assumptions, and opinions expressed by former U.S. attorney, former attorney to the president of the United States, and New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, his guests, and callers on his program are strictly their own and do not necessarily represent the opinions, beliefs, or policies of WABC radio, its owner, Red Apple Group, and other WABC hosts or our advertisers,” an announcer stated.
Giuliani, incensed that he wasn’t told of the disclaimer beforehand, said that it was just another attack on free speech.
“I would have thought they would have told me about that before just doing what they just did,” Giuliani said. “Rather insulting. And gives you a sense of how far this free speech thing has gone and how they frighten everybody. I mean we’re in America, we’re not in East Germany. They’ve got to warn you about me? I’m going to have to give that a lot of consideration. I also think putting it on without telling me, not the right thing to do, not the right thing to do at all.”
“But got to tell you another thing, my dedication to free speech outweighs a lot of other things I can do,” he added.
