I thought Rush Limbaugh died after the 2012 election. Guess he just became even more irrevelant.

The only time I hear about that old pill popper is here.
 
2013-07-09 10:02:56 AM  
Well, he is right.

Fox and Rush audiences HAVE sanity that can be self-doubted?

Highly unlikely..

What? Has FAUX News become too liberal of a news site or something?
 
2013-07-09 10:51:32 AM  
To be fair, saying crazy, racist things to white people has been Rush's job for going on 30 years now. Fox News is muscling in on his business.

Crazy people NEVER doubt their sanity.
 
2013-07-09 10:52:40 AM  
So Rush is admitting that the left-leaning pundits they present are really just shills for Fox News?

Fair and Balanced!

Yep. Fox is too liberal for some on the right. Like all right wing commentators Rush is playing at being an outsider so those disaffected crazies will flock to him.

Reminds me of that Futurama where Leela flips out in "The Sting".  "OK, I'm insane.  But at least I'm still sane to know it."

When Rush Limbaugh says to turn off Fox News, you know Fox News is farkin' insane.

/And if there is one person who knows insanity, it's Rush Limbaugh.

They're getting a significantly larger chunk of advertising dollars than Rush as of late.  That's why all the sand in Limbaugh's undies.

Well, what did you expect?

They aren't true, red blooded Americans any longer.  Fox News has gone rougey rogue liberal now.

xanadian: What? Has FAUX News become too liberal of a news site or something?


Yes.  The definition of "liberal bias" to some of these people is "anything that is not 100% hard-right conservative 100% of the time".  Most mass media outside of MSNBC is neutral to conservative, but the fringe keeps forcing it to move farther and farther right by throwing a tantrum whenever liberals are depicted as anything nicer than the spawn of Satan, citing it as proof of liberal bias in the media.  It's why you pretty much only ever see Fox News playing in public places.

Couldn't be bothered to read the article, huh.

He's not saying Fox is insane.  He's saying the LIBERALS they have on the Fox panels are the trolls that are driving people angry and crazy.

Limbaugh goes on-line August 1st, 1988. Human decisions are removed from strategic derp. Limbaugh begins to herp at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 10:14 a.m. Eastern time, July 9th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

Slow news day, non story for non-important blowhard.

I wish Rush knew that he is free to be who he really is, now, more than at any other time in his life.

Shave the beard, Rush. Be the gay man you know you are, and let go of all that fear. I could tell you liked Obama from the start. You like tea and candles and tiny dogs. It's ok. We on the left are very forgiving when you come clean. You want to make that change. We are here for you.

Sincerely,

The Loving Left

Oh. Hell no.
 
2013-07-09 11:26:02 AM  
You-all are talking like there's a difference between Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. That's a Venn diagram which forms a perfect circle.
 
2013-07-09 11:26:27 AM  
Well fox news does exist to make BS controversy and misinform its listeners.

Rush Limbaugh exists to piss off liberals.  In defense of Limbaugh's listeners they are pro-business republicans and are probably more well informed then your average idiot on the street.  Even if Limbaugh's listeners social attitudes are not respected by most democrats, they are not fundie cultural conservatives.

/The best way to handle Limbaugh is to stop commenting or reacting to his racist rants until his need for attention will force him to cross the line to the point where even the average stormfront demographic will think twice before downloading his internet podcast.

Kinda.. The caller is complaining about all the liberals on Fox news.  Limbaugh replies that you should ignore the liberals on Fox news, because they're only there to troll everyone else (which may actually be true).   Limbaugh never says to stop watching Fox news, he says that you should ignore the Fox news liberals.  I skipped around a bit, so if he does actually say not to watch Fox, correct me.

And I've hit my Limbaugh limit for this week after listening to that.  It makes me so anxious that it's just not healthy.  It scares me that such an obvious troll could have such an enduring audience.. especially since many (most?) of his listeners do not realize he's trolling.  What is worse than listening to him is listening to his callers/viewers.  I mean, I'm talking about people who think that the only possible explanation for PPACA being called ObamaCare is that Obama is a egomaniac who needs his name on everything.  These are the people where I have to go find sources for things that happened a year or four ago because they somehow cannot remember back that far.  Even then, they claim that all those sources are liberal revisionist history, even though they match up with what everyone else remembers.  Heck, these are the people that get basic facts and terminology wrong and somehow interpret their own misunderstanding as a conspiracy to deceive them (e.g. They think that global warming is now called climate change to excuse the supposed lack of rising temperature.)

Rushbo's voice is getting shriller and more ladylike.

Well, now I've seen everything. (pulls out cartoon gun, points at head)
 
2013-07-09 11:39:17 AM  
You're wrong, Subby.  Rush told the caller to stop listening to left-leaning commentators on Fox, not the whole network, but I suspect that factoid makes little difference to the author nor the posters in this thread.  Please, carry on with the name calling.

You are assuming that listeners believe these facts. What if the limbaugh demographic knows better and listens to limbaugh the same way someone might listen to Howard Stern. For kicks.

I have severe doubts as to whether you've ever met someone who can stand to hear more then 5 consecutive minutes of the Rush Limbaugh show.

Every Rush listener I know believes in every right wing email forwarded conspiracy or bullshiat claim.  That's hardly well informed.  Being informed on incorrect things is not better or preferable to being ignorant.

Guess Fox wised up and stopped paying their protection money.
