Reporters at ABC and CBS went offensive over the sad news that renowned conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh is fighting lung cancer. An ABC News writer posted an extraordinarily hostile article after Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom: "....President Donald Trump's decision to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh -- a polarizing figure who has insisted it was unfair to blame white Americans for slavery, blamed gay marriage for the decline of Christianity, and attempted to slut-shame a woman seeking coverage for contraception -- stood out." CBS was no better: "Mr. Trump's decision drew fierce blowback from critics who pointed to Limbaugh's decades of bigoted rhetoric and spreading conspiracy theories and misinformation on his show...."
New York Times reporter Jacey Fortin reported on renowned conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s sad revelation that he has advanced lung cancer. But not even that cruel diagnosis stopped Fortin from being classless toward a conservative figure: "Mr. Limbaugh, who has said he started smoking cigarettes as a teenager but quit by the early 1980s, and who has often been photographed smoking a cigar, questioned the link between smoking and cancer in 2015."
After praising Nancy Pelosi’s antics at last night’s State of the Union address, The View hosts reserved their rage for President Trump awarding Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award. Co-host Whoopi Goldberg claimed the influential talk radio host had done nothing to deserve it, while Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin attacked Limbaugh as a racist bigot.
A day after conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh announced that he had been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer, Limbaugh and wife Kathryn were in Washington as guests of honor in First Lady Melania Trump’s box during President Donald Trump’s Tuesday evening State of the Union Address. In addition to addressing Limbaugh directly, Trump surprised Limbaugh and the audience by revealing that not only would Limbaugh receive the Presidential Media of Freedom, but that it would be done immediately.
The Washington Free Beacon has unearthed a fascinating scoop about talk radio in the Clinton years using documents from the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. The Democratic party developed an "elaborate, multi-year operation" in the mid-1990s that "deployed thousands of activists" to compete in the talk-radio wars after Republicans took the House in 1994. Rush Limbaugh has long talked about "seminar callers" who called in to dish Democrat Party talking points. It turned out that "conspriracy theory" was spot-on accurate.
On Joy Reid's MSNBC show, NPR's Maria Hinojosa, discussing the Democrat primary, says: "white guys just take up a lot of space."
There are few that can compete with conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh when it comes to dissecting the left’s nonsense on a daily basis. So this past week, he was in usual form as he lambasted the liberal media who exist to “destroy” the Trump presidency through their “leadership role of the American left” despite CNN’s horrid ratings thanks to how they’ve “bastardized the concept of journalism.”
Did you hear about the new study out of Berlin which found that 92 percent of left-wing activists still live with their parents? This will come as no surprise to nearly every conservative learning about it. What the study didn't look at though was what percent of left-wing activists never leave adolescence. Chances are, that answer would have been on the high end. Latest example from liberal media -- Bill Press yesterday on his radio show/podcast discussing the latest "milkshaking" incident in Great Britain, this one targeting Nigel Farage, a leader of the Brexit movement.
Bill Press, perhaps best known as one of the 1990s hosts for the influential CNN cable show Crossfire, now hosts one of the few popular liberal radio programs, and he offered a shocker: he admitted Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize "when he had done nothing."
Foreign governments are preparing to crack down on social media monopolies. An English House of Commons committee, the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, released a report claiming Facebook’s flaws were “risking the U.K.’s democracy.”
New York Times’ reporter David Segal jeered supporters of Brexit, the 2016 vote in which Britain voted narrowly to leave the European Union, with a profile of a London radio host: “The Fame and Folly of Fighting Brexiteers With Logic -- A talk radio host wields facts, eviscerating Leavers and racking up YouTube clicks.” Segal is condescending and snide on the front page of Sunday Business, comparing Brexit voters to suicides, while relishing host O’Brien owning the stupid Leavers.
It comes down to two possibilities, neither appealing -- Bill Press is either completely clueless or inclined to deliberately parrot an obviously dishonest political narrative. Then again, it could be both. Perhaps you've seen the video of rising leftist kommissar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop when she was a student at Boston University in homage to the '80s coming-of-age screen classic The Breakfast Club.
