    KSFO has a long history of sponsoring hate speech.

    On his September 21, 1999 broadcast, while voicing his contempt for San Francisco's homeless and the efforts to help them, Michael Savage, a long time Bay Area radio personality, said that female students who come from a Marin County private school to feed and provide services to the homeless "can go in and get raped by them because they seem to like the excitement of it..." These and other comments suggesting sexual activity between homeless people and minor students were peppered throughout the three-hour broadcast.

    This is from a detailed account of the incident available at a blog by a former teacher and parent:

    It doesn't take much to imagine the vein-popping apoplexy that would be instantly voiced by conservative commentators if a progressive commentator said that Christian missionaries go to third world locales because they're excited by the possibility of rape and murder. I highly doubt that Disney would permit such speech on a station they owned.
