Dear Mr. Berry:

Your firing of host Michael Graham undermined the First Amendment and represented capitulation to a radical Muslim group. You have the spine of a jellyfish. By contrast, Graham had just come back from Iraq, where he had interviewed our troops and reported on their progress in the war on terror. He was determined to tell the truth about the enemy we face. His comments about the violent nature of Islam were controversial but legitimate and worthy of expanded debate. Now, however, you have announced to the world that WMAL will not examine that subject as long as an outside special interest group objects. You have made a mockery of the concept of “talk radio.” For you, apparently, you can only talk about certain things. Stand up for freedom of speech before it is too late to do so.
