The suit, filed WEDNESDAY in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of CALIFORNIA, alleges that on SEPTEMBER 25th, SAVAGE defamed the couple with the comment, “You say UFOs, you wind up in the PHILIPPINES with a 10-year-old hooker and you are off the radio after a number of years. You can’t do UFOs. That’s an in-joke, by the way, for people who understand the business.”
The suit notes that “Ms. BELL has never been a prostitute and was 22 years old when the BELLS married. Also, Mr. BELL was not ‘off the radio’ because he discussed UFOs or married Ms. BELL. These facts were publicly known and closely followed by many in the radio broadcasting industry and general public.”
Meanwhile the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS is hitting with a piece calling Bell a tinfoil hat talker and mocking who a witness list would be for such a trial..
Bell, responding to hundreds of comments (and growing) on his Facebook page, writes this:
I have never spoken to Michael Savage, AKA Michael Weiner, I don’t know him. As you read for some reason that I just can’t figure out on his show he simply went after my Wife and myself in the most horrible way any person can go after another. We have never had words between us of any kind. That said, he attacked us with plain Malice and for no reason. I have been so angry that I nearly did something that would land me in jail. Instead I contacted my Lawyer and had him send a demand for retraction which was ignored. Now I have filed a Lawsuit. I want to thank the leaders in Broadcasting that have already come forward to say they will gladly Testify that they know exactly what was said and who he meant. Beyond that I am going to be gone for a while to try and keep my Family away from the publicity and the honest to God hurt this has brought. My Wife is Pregnant and does not need this, nor do I. I am sure most of you can see his statement for what it is. So I will be out of the area for a while and any comments I might make will have to wait till I get back and more to the point calm down, I can not remember being this gut angry in my life. For anybody willing to help my Lawyer is Gerry Fox in Los Angeles and can be contacted at (310) 441-0500.
