Overlooked and Over the Top: Cincinnati Radio Host Bill Cunningham Targets Women, the Poor, and 'Black Fathers,'

Spouts Incendiary Holocaust and Satan References

WASHINGTON - In a report last week by Media Matters for
America
documenting the right-wing echo chamber of local and
regional radio hosts, Cincinnati
radio host Bill Cunningham stood out as one of the more prolific purveyors of hate speech and offensive
salvos.

"While Bill Cunningham might not have the
notoriety of Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, or Glenn Beck, his record of spewing
hate and misinformation is just as steady and just as abhorrent," said
National Press Secretary J. Jioni Palmer.

While extensive attention has been paid to nationally
syndicated radio hosts Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly this
year, Media Matters has greatly
expanded its monitoring of the vast network of other syndicated and regional
radio hosts, including Cunningham, who has also appeared several times on Fox
News.

Among the most notable comments made by Cunningham:

  • Alleging that "Obama wants to gas the Jews"
  • Invoking "[s]ix-six-six" and "the beast" in discussing
    "Barack Hussein Obama"
  • On
    Obama Sr.: "That's what black fathers do. They simply leave"
  • On the poor: "[P]eople are poor in America ... because they lack
    values, morals, and ethics"
  • Declaring
    that America's
    "so-called noble poor" don't use birth control so that "the mom
    can get more checks in the mail from the government"

The Big
Show with Bill Cunningham
is a weekday radio program
that airs from 12:25 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET on Cincinnati's WLW-AM.
The program is simulcast on XM Radio Channel 173. Cunningham, a former Ohio assistant attorney
general, also hosts a nationally syndicated Sunday-night talk program titled Live on Sunday Night, It's Bill Cunningham,
which is broadcast live on 325 affiliates, according to its syndicator, Premiere
Radio Networks
