Why does Charlie Sykes hate free speech?

Milwaukee medium wave buffoon Charlie Sykes is beside himself that supporters of Barack Obama would dare to call in to a Chicago call-in radio show and challenge a notorious right-wing dissembler, David Freddoso.

OBAMA'S SPEECH THUGS STRIKE AGAIN, bellows Sykes. What's that all about? Apparently advance news of David Freddoso's appearance elicited this outrageous "Obama Action Wire":
Call into the "Extension 720" show with Milt Rosenberg tonight, September 15th, between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. at (312) 591-7200.

Be honest, but be civil.

Be persistent. It may take a few attempts to get through to the show. Just keep trying. Your call is important.

Use the talking points below to help you speak confidently and concisely.
So what? In America, it's called "free speech." When people lie, you counter them. And 720 kHz is on a public portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, not incidentally.

But Charlie Sykes would obviously prefer the lies and the smears to stand unchallenged. Besides, Rosenberg could always do what Sykes does with callers who dissent from his nonsense — hang up on them.
Freddoso's embarrassing excuse for a critique has received virtually no critical attention, thanks to the right-wing press promoting it and the compliant mainstream outlets. A fawning story in the Politico called Freddoso's book "serious" and "a fact-based critique." According to the Politico, it occupies "a small island in the often-shrill sea of criticism of Obama." In reality, Freddoso's book is one more example of that polluted sea of criticism, filled with numerous factual errors, unproven innuendo, guilt by association attacks, and lunatic conspiracy theories that would be laughable if not for the seriousness of these false accusations.
David Freddoso's Hatchet Job.

"Leave David Freddoso alone!" wept Charlie Sykes.

You know, I'm starting to get the feeling that maybe this Sykes fellow isn't 100% interested in truth and reasonableness!

This is the same clown who went after the sponsors of Bill Maher's appearance here in July.
