This is what he gets away with on a regular basis. This blatant dishonesty, the carelessness. is accepted by millions. He doesn’t do teh crazy like Beck, but he is an opinion leader and even in that role gets away with this stuff all the time.
The second quote below comes following the news about the FOX guys in Egypt. Same day, a few hours apart. From Limbaugh’s credibility-free zone:
“Even two New York Times reporters were detained. Now, this is supposed to make us feel what, exactly? How we supposed to feel? Are we supposed to feel outrage over it? I don’t feel any outrage over it. Are we supposed to feel anger? I don’t feel any anger over this. Do we feel happy? Well – uh – do we feel kind of going like, “neh-neh-neh-neh”?”
And then, a few hours later:
“Fox News’ Greg Palkot and crew have been severely beaten and are now hospitalized in Cairo. Now we were kidding before about The New York Times, of course. This kind of stuff is terrible. ”
Of course. (h/t Bartcop)
