All I Ask Is That You Send One Short Email. That’s Fair Enough, Isn’t It?
Welcome to all of you who are checking out this site for the first time. I’ve gotten a huge spike in hits because I recorded and showed the world what Rush Limbaugh is saying about Wesley Clark. A pompous windbag like Limbaugh doesn’t scare me (I know firsthand that Limbaugh, like all bullies, is a big wuss; click here and here). What I have mentioned previously really scares me about Limbaugh is how the supposed mainstream media turns a blind eye to his demagoguery (click here for an egregious example) as well as the attempt to make him appear mainstream (scroll down to my 7/17 post). Limbaugh, unlike demagogues of the past like Father Coughlin and George Wallace, has received a free ride from much of the mainstream media.
Probably one of the most repellent episodes in which Limbaugh was given a free ride was when Tom Daschle complained about the unfair attacks on him by Limbaugh and others. Kurtz wrote two columns defending Limbaugh (click here and here) and gave him a softball interview on his CNN show.
Considering the vicious attacks that Limbaugh made against Wesley Clark recently, I have the following assignment: 1) read the charges Limbaugh made (scroll down to read last week’s posts); and 2) write Howard Kurtz at email@example.com and tell him to reconsider his views about Limbaugh. Mention the attacks Limbaugh made on Clark. It’s important.
