Rudy Giuliani, who puts on an afternoon show every day New York’s 77th Talk Radio WABC was upset after WABC issued a disclaimer prior to its program.
WABC said Giuliani’s views and those of “His guests and callers to his programming are solely their own and do not necessarily represent the opinions, beliefs, or guidelines of WABC Radio.”
Giuliani has come under fire for his association with former President Donald Trump – Giuliani worked as Trump’s personal attorney – but especially after the Capitol uprising. Giuliani appeared at a rally that killed five people, including a Capitol Police officer who later died of his injuries, ahead of the attack, and encouraged attendees to stop the electoral certificate of President Joe Biden’s election victory.
Giuliani was also recently named as one of the defendants in a defamation lawsuit by voting system company Smartmatic against Fox News seeking $ 2.7 billion in damages from the company that allowed Giuliani and others named in his lawsuit to spread untruths about the election.
He was pretty upset about the disclaimer.
“I would have thought they’d told me about it before they just did what they just did. More insulting. And gives you an idea of how far that freedom of speech has gone. And how they all frighten. I mean, we’re in America, we’re not in East Germany, ”he said.
“You have to warn you about me? I will have to take that into account very much. I also think of putting it on without telling me – not the right thing. Not the right thing at all, ”he added.
