(Newser) – Trouble in the land of right-wing radio. Michael Savage blasted Rush Limbaugh today as "the biggest phony of them all," reports Media Matters. Savage was speaking about the people who have supported him since Britain branded him a hate-monger and told him to stay away. Limbaugh, however, did not come to Savage's side—as Savage did for him when Limbaugh faced drug accusations.

Supporters "see the bigger picture," said Savage. "They're not like O'Reilly; they're not like Limbaugh, who's the biggest disappointment of all. Limbaugh has turned out to be the biggest phony of all of them, all of them. Amongst all of them, he is the biggest fraud. Rush Limbaugh is a fraud. When he was accused of the drug usage, I supported him. But that man is a one-way street. It's all about him. He's in it for nobody but himself." (Read more Michael Savage stories.)
