On the August 7 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program, Michael Savage declared that CNN hosts Wolf Blitzer and Larry King "look like the type that would have pushed Jewish children into the oven to stay alive one more day to entertain the Nazis." Savage remarked that Blitzer "will do the astonishing act of being the type that would stick Jewish children into a gas chamber to stay alive another day. He's probably the most despicable man in the media next to Larry King ... a close runner-up." Savage opined: "The reason they curry favor with the turbanned hoodlums is to gain access to the turbanned hoodlums, domestic and foreign, for their news shows. They need more turbanned hoodlums to build ratings."

Savage has previously called Blitzer "the type who would have let children into the gas chamber in order to stay alive an extra day," as Media Matters for America noted. Savage has also accused Blitzer of being "anti-Semitic ... anti-Jewish, and pro-Arab" because he "doesn't want to appear too Jewish ... and too pro-Jewish." Savage also incorrectly claimed Blitzer is "Israeli originally," a claim he repeated here. Blitzer was born in Buffalo, New York, according to a September 7, 2005, article in The Hill. According to Blitzer's bio on CNN.com: "He began his career in 1972 with the Reuters News Agency in Tel Aviv. Shortly thereafter, he became a Washington, D.C., correspondent for The Jerusalem Post."

As Media Matters has also noted, Savage previously stated that "it's people like" philanthropist George Soros "who brought about the Holocaust" and labeled former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright a "brisket maker."

From the August 7 edition of Talk Radio Network's The Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: The reason they curry favor with the turbanned hoodlums is to gain access to the turbanned hoodlums, domestic and foreign, for their news shows. They need more turbanned hoodlums to build ratings.

CALLER: Yes. I agree with you, and --

SAVAGE: That's why the department store dummy named Wolf Blitzer, a Jew who was born in Israel, will do the astonishing act of being the type that would stick Jewish children into a gas chamber to stay alive another day. He's probably the most despicable man in the media next to Larry King, who takes a close runner-up by the hair of a nose. The two of them together look like the type that would have pushed Jewish children into the oven to stay alive one more day to entertain the Nazis.
