Consider this a perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black Larry King being an idiot during an interview with Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann.

King: Would you want the Limbaugh, that crowd — would you want them to be your voice as the Republican Party stands in this country?

Bachmann: Well remember it’s who the American people are referring to Larry. And the American people are looking to voices like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Glenn Beck –

King: I just told you — it’s 2 percent of America. It’s 2 percent!

Senility is a terrible thing. Larry still thinks people watch his show.

The boys at CNBC are feeling their oats again. Joe Kernan went ballistic over an article David Brooks wrote in the New York Times.

Here’s part of what Brooks said:

The Republican Party is unpopular because it’s more interested in pleasing Rush’s ghosts than actual people. The party is leaderless right now because nobody has the guts to step outside the rigid parameters enforced by the radio jocks and create a new party identity. The party is losing because it has adopted a radio entertainer’s niche-building strategy, while abandoning the politician’s coalition-building strategy.

Kernan couldn’t stomach that nonsense and came unglued on CNBC:

Everyone at these town hall meetings was a plant or a nutcase? Everything’s written off? There’s really no one that disagrees with the edicts of [liberals]? … How can Fox News double MSNBC and CNN combined? How do they have the top ten? … Air America can’t sell an ad. There’s no one that wants to listen to them … Let me guess: liberals are so cerebral and erudite that they don’t, they don’t, they’re at the opera. They’re at the opera, they don’t listen to talk radio or watch TV. They’re reading Sartre. Is that what you’re telling me? I love that, David Brooks is a conservative? Well you tell Rush that his 100 million a year, or whatever he makes isn’t real. Those are, those are fake 100 million. David Brooks, I mean is he a wolf in sheep’s clothing? Who is this guy, I mean, really, he’s the conservative? You know what, he is conservative for the Times.

We say forget that Sartre guy, Joe. Stick with IHateTheMedia.com. Guaranteed to supply your required daily dosage of existential thought.

Stop the damn presses! This is headline material!

Libtalk radio host Lynn Samuels, who worked with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity at WABC/New York, has spoken the unspeakable: They’re both nice guys.

Look for Samuels Sirius/XM show to be cancelled any minute now.

Rush is lighter by 80 pounds and half a million dollars

Rush is lighter by 80 pounds and half a million dollars

It’s not something his liberal critics want to talk about, but Rush Limbaugh is a very generous man. He just donated $500,000 to the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles.

The gift was given in memory of Antonio De la Cruz, M.D., who passed away recently as a result of complications from lymphoma.

Dr. De la Cruz and another House Clinic physician diagnosed Limbaugh with auto-immune inner ear disease (AIED) and eventually performed cochlear implant surgery to restore his hearing.

“Dr. De la Cruz literally saved my career and got me my life back with that surgery,” Limbaugh said. “I wouldn’t have been able to continue my career. For a month before I had the implant surgery, I did my show totally deaf.”

This donation, of course, is on top of the hundreds of thousands of dollars the king of talk gives to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society each year.

So in the end, it turns out that Limbaugh may be deaf, but his critics are the ones who refuse to hear the truth.

File photo of David Letterman from about 20 years ago, back when he was funny

File photo of David Letterman from about 20 years ago, back when he was funny

Much to everyone’s surprise, and for the first time in support of a conservative woman in recent memory, the National Organization for Women condemned David Letterman’s ugly attack on Sarah Palin and her 14-year old daughter.

Here’s part of the statement from NOW’s website:

Letterman said “I recognize that these are ugly” jokes. NOW agrees. Comedians in search of a laugh should really know better than to snicker about men having sex with teenage girls (or young women) less than half their age.

The sexualization of girls and women in the media is reaching new lows these days — it is exploitative and has a negative effect on how all women and girls are perceived and how they view themselves. Letterman also joked about what he called Palin’s “slutty flight attendant look” — yet another example of how the media love to focus on a woman politician’s appearance, especially as it relates to her sexual appeal to men. Someone of Letterman’s stature, who appears on what used to be known as “the Tiffany Network” (CBS), should be above wallowing in the juvenile, sexist mud that other comedians and broadcasters seem to prefer.

So far, so good. But it was as if NOW just couldn’t bear chastising a liberal, so just for good measure they piled on Rush Limbaugh for something he said back in the early ‘90s:

On that point, it’s important to note that when Chelsea Clinton was 13 years old she was the target of numerous insults based on her appearance. Rush Limbaugh even referred to her as the “White House dog.” NOW hopes that all the conservatives who are fired up about sexism in the media lately will join us in calling out sexism when it is directed at women who aren’t professed conservatives.

Back at you, NOW. Might be nice if you guys came out in support of a conservative woman a little more often.

Round One: Bellowing idealogue Rush Limbaugh versus the alternative media infrastructure

Round One: Bellowing idealogue Rush Limbaugh versus the alternative media infrastructure

And so it begins. Some of President Obama’s “progressive” buddies are demanding “an alternative media infrastructure, one that is insulated from the commercial pressures that brought us to our current crisis.” 

Free Press, a “media reform group” allied with the Obama administration, is condemning the “bellowing ideologues” on the air and complaining that “The entire dial is empty of local news in many communities.”

Translation: Call the security guards, because there’s an angry protest brewing outside the FCC headquarters right now. They’ll undoubtedly moan and wail that “local news” is woefully deficient at any station with the temerity to run Rush Limbaugh.

Accuracy In Media outlines the rest of the socialist agenda:

As part of the proposed new “media infrastructure,” Free Press is calling for a $50 billion “Public Media Trust Fund” to underwrite the creation of new jobs for journalists and the use of the existing federal AmeriCorps program “to include journalistic activities as part of its mission” in the form of “journalism positions” and “journalism projects.” AmeriCorps is a federally-funded national and community service agency.

The group is also urging a direct federal bailout of liberal media institutions, declaring that “The Department of Labor could design a program aimed at keeping reporters employed at existing news organizations or at new outlets.” Free Press explains, “If the government were to subsidize 5,000 reporters at $50,000 per year, the cost would be $250 million annually, a relatively modest sum given the billions coming out of Washington.”

In addition to the $50-billion “Public Media Trust Fund,” another one of the proposals from the Free Press group is a $50-million “government-seeded innovation fund for journalism,” described by Craig Aaron of Free Press as “a taxpayer-supported venture capital firm that invests in new journalism models.”

“Let’s go to the phones for our next caller. Welcome K-Socialist. You’re on the air.”

Tradition dictates that the White House Correspondents Dinner roast the president. But host Wanda Sykes could not hide her liberal leanings and after a few polite Obama jokes, tore into the Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others on the Obama Enemy List instead. This video shows us what the “roast” would have been like in an alternate universe, one where the media treats all sides fairly.

MSNBC host Ed Schultz preparing for another informative show

MSNBC host Ed Schultz preparing for another informative show

We sincerely apologize for any unpleasant images that headline may have brought to mind, but it seemed appropriate.

Within the course of one hour on Monday night, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz condemned David Feherty for joking about the death of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, then turned around and praised Wanda Sykes’ for joking about the death of Rush Limbaugh.

“My thoughts on the White House correspondents dinner,” Ed said at the top of his show, “the best jokes and why I’m so glad Wanda Sykes took it to Rush Limbaugh.”

Ed rolled tape that showed Sykes’ comments. Well, most of Sykes’ comments. “Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails. So you said, I hope America fails. I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker but he was just so strung out on Oxycontin he missed his flight.

Ed conveniently edited out these offensive words: “Rush Limbaugh. ‘I hope the country fails.’ I hope his kidneys fail. How about that.”

A few minutes later, Schultz featured Feherty’s joke about killing Reid and Pelosi. He condemned Feherty and called the joke “insanity” and “sick.”

Our best guess is that Ed knows he can say any damn thing he wants, no matter how stupid or hypocritical, because he knows virtually no one is watching his show. If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, does it make a noise?

Irony is running rampant these days. Turns out unfunny comedienne Wanda Sykes, who insulted Rush Limbaugh at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, appeared in a recent “public service” commercial where she lectures teenage boys about how they shouldn’t use insulting language. She tells them to “Knock it off.”

After her humorless appearance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, maybe the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network should find itself a new role model who’s not so, well, insulting.

Just sayin’.

Hollywood hates conservatives. The press hates conservatives. And the worst conservative on earth is Rush Limbaugh. And President Obama loves all that. Put all these ingredients together and what do you get? Comedian and actress Wanda Sykes at the the White House Press Corps dinner last night saying she hope Rush Limbaugh’s kidneys fail, to the delight and laughter of our free press, and of course, our tolerant and very sensitive president.

Oh we know, she was just kidding. The press crops were just a little tipsy. And the president was just politely smiling along with the joke. Can’t we conservatives just lighten up?

Step One: get an original photo of Air Force One.

Step One: get an original photo of Air Force One.

They took Air Force One on location on Monday for a photo shoot over the skies of New York City. Unfortunately, they did it without notifying anyone in Mayor Bloomberg’s administration.

It was instant panic when the good citizens of New York City saw another 747 screaming in low over the skyline. They screamed. They ran. They feared for their lives. And rightfully so.

Perhaps all this could have been avoided with a little

Step Two: Get a photo of the Statue of Liberty.

Step Two: Get a photo of the Statue of Liberty.

Photoshop. A little resizing here, a couple color adjustments there, and then top it all off with a little clone stamp tool. Voila! Air Force One over the Statue of Liberty.

No flights over New York City were necessary. No Air Force One. No fighter jets. No pilots. No crew. No fuel. It would have save you about $$328,825 and a ton of bad publicity.

IHateTheMedia.com proudly offers the President this stunning PhotoShop version of Air Force One over the Statue of Liberty.

Just one thing, President Obama. Could you send us $10 for the PhotoShop work? That’s what the kid next door charged us.

Update: I see Rush is mentioning Air Force One and photoshop all morning. Someone get him this story so he can see it.

michael savageThere’s an old saying that “Any ink is good ink.” But when it comes to radio talk show host Michael Savage, there’s almost no ink.

Savage is America’s third largest talker based on number of affiliates and listeners. Top dog Rush Limbaugh has “about 600 affiliates.” Sean Hannity has “over 500.” And Michael Savage reportedly has 400. Yet the difference in press coverage received by the three talk titans is startling.

We searched Google News for the year 2008. “Rush Limbaugh” and was mentioned 68,400 times. Sean Hannity was mentioned 18,600 times. But Michael Savage scored only 5,910 mentions. Obviously, Limbaugh is the king daddy and in another league compared to everyone else. But how do you explain the vast difference between the coverage of Hannity and Savage? Savage has 80% as many affiliates as Hannity, but received but gets only 31% of the press coverage. And, by the way, he is a man that has published over 20 books.

To double check our theory, we also searched Google News for the last month. The finally tally was Limbaugh 9,398 mentions, Hannity 621 mentions, and Savage a mere 137 mentions. That number puts him far closer to overwhelmingly unpopular and unsuccessful talk show hosts like Stephanie Miller (73 mentions) and Ed Schultz (44 mentions) than to peers Limbaugh and Hannity. Yet Savage has far more affiliates and a far larger audience than either of the liberal hosts.

Yes, Savage is combative. Abrasive. Harsh. Acerbic. Outspoken. But he has a large, loyal audience and there’s no logical reason for him to be ignored by the liberal and conservative press.

Here’s to you, Michael. For what it’s worth, you’re not being ignored by IHateTheMedia.com.

We apologize in advance for using the words “brilliant” and “Los Angeles Times” in the same sentence. However, there’s a brilliant op-ed piece by Andrew Klavan in last Sunday’s Los Angeles Times.

If you are reading this newspaper, the likelihood is that you agree with the Obama administration’s recent attacks on conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh. That’s the likelihood; here’s the certainty: You’ve never listened to Rush Limbaugh.

Oh no, you haven’t. Whenever I interrupt a liberal’s anti-Limbaugh rant to point out that the ranter has never actually listened to the man, he always says the same thing: “I’ve heard him!”

On further questioning, it always turns out that by “heard him,” he means he’s heard the selected excerpts spoon-fed him by the distortion-mongers of the mainstream media. These excerpts are specifically designed to accomplish one thing: to make sure you never actually listen to Limbaugh’s show, never actually give him a fair chance to speak his piece to you directly.

Klavan concluded:

The mainstream media (a.k.a. the Matrix) don’t want you to listen to Limbaugh because they’re afraid he’ll wake you up and set you free of their worldview. You don’t want to listen to him because you’re afraid of the same thing.

Don’t believe me? Well, then, gird your loins. Gather your courage. Accept the Limbaugh Challenge. See what happens.

I dare you.

Today, Rush Limbaugh. Tomorrow, Fox News. You never know where this could end up.

Conservative talk radio is toasting with champagne, but lib talk radio is just plain toast.

Conservative talk radio is toasting with champagne, but lib talk radio is just plain toast.

The more President Obama and the Democrats talk about talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh, the higher his ratings go. And he’s taking all conservative talk radio along for a very exciting ride.

Radio insiders expected the ratings to show growth with a Democrat in the White House. But the actual numbers are exploding far beyond anyone’s expectations.

Brian Maloney’s Radio Equalizer is a great site if you’re interested in an insider’s view of talk radio. Here’s how he reports the most recent results in the nation’s top markets:

In New York City, WABC has experienced huge gains during Rush’s noon- 3pm timeslot: from 4.6 to 6.7 overall (12 and older) share, good for first place overall in the nation’s largest market. Rush’s Big Apple listenership is now estimated at 693,000.

In the second-largest market, Los Angeles, KFI-AM has surged into the number one position (all listeners 12 and older) from 9am to noon, with 618,000 listeners, a 4.6 to 6.0 audience share increase over three months and an even bigger males 35-64 (4.6 to 6.3) move, to take first place there as well.

Chicago, saw another huge move, with Rush affiliate WLS also taking first place during his timeslot (12 and older), from 5.2 share to 6.9 and a total local listenership of 396,700 in the third-largest market.

KSFO / San Francisco saw similar results, despite the extreme-left bent of the Bay Area: 4.7 to 6.0 share, now ranking second overall and with men aged 35-64. Total audience: 346,000.

In Dallas – Fort Worth, 4.8 to 6.4 men 35-64 and fourth overall (12+), 3.5 to 4.5. Cumulative audience: 250,000.

Houston’s results were truly blockbuster: 6.0 to 9.8 overall, ranking number one with a bullet and audience of 382,300. Men 35-64: number one again, from 8.6 to 12.2 over three months. Adults 25-54: first place, 4.6 to 8.7. Women 25-54: 3.7 to 8.3 again good for a top ranking.

DC’s WMAL also saw Rush-related growth: 4.1 to 6.7, good for third overall and an audience of 155,300. Men 35-64: number one with a staggering 6.4 to 13.4 move.

In Atlanta, Rush has helped WGST fend off an enormous competitor, WSB-AM, with a similar 4.0 to 6.2 upward move, good for fifth place overall and a total audience of 473,500. The results are better in the male 35-64 demographic, surging from 5.5 to 8.0 share.

Bucking Detroit’s recent Democratic voting trend, Rush’s performance on WJR-AM has been more significant than ever, moving into first place with a 5.8 to 9.6 jump. Men 35-64: number one and 11.6 share. Total audience: 253,000.

Hey, turn down that conservative talk radio show for a second. Hear that dull thud? That’s the sound of lib talk radio hosts pounding their heads against the wall.

glenn beck tvGlenn Beck kicked butt in the ratings last week. After being on television for years, he’s an overnight success.

His Fox News program soared in the ratings, passing perennial second place Sean Hannity and nearly catching long-time leader Bill O’Reilly. All three Fox hosts left the other cable news shows far, far behind.

Here’s a brief snippet of an interview Beck did recently with TheDailyBeast.com:

Beast: Do you expect that you will be surpassing Rush Limbaugh any time soon in terms of your radio audience?
Beck: [Laughs.] I don’t think so.
Beast: But are you the pretender to the throne?
Beck: I think I do something extraordinarily different than Rush. Rush is political thought, I am a guy who’s part rodeo clown. I don’t pretend to be able to plan movements of the parties and the presidents and everything else. I really don’t care that much about the parties. I’m a dad. I care about my children. I want some country to be left with real freedom in it for them.

This might be a good time for Bill O’Reilly to remember the words of the great Negro League pitcher Satchel Paige, “Don’t look back, somebody might be gaining on you.”

But at least he knows it’s not Keith Olbermann.

newsweek_limbaughAir America is going into the syndication business. And its first outside client is a Newsweek Magazine radio production called “Newsweek On the Air.”

In keeping with Air America’s corporate mission statement, the program has been on the air for 27-years, but no one is known to have ever actually listened to it.

In reality, this isn’t news. It’s merely the continuation of a long, friendly relationship between the two lib media sources. Like when Chris Dodd goes to dinner with Ted Kennedy.

For example, back in 2004 when Air America first hit the airwaves, Newsweek covered the event with an effusive story that was long on compliments and short on reality.

It is surely no coincidence that this “big” announcement falls on a week in which Newsweek’s cover story attacks conservative icon Rush Limbaugh, Air America’s arch enemy.

This really is an almost Zen-like concept: A radio network no one listens to syndicating a program no one’s ever heard from a magazine no one reads.

deepak chopra spaceThe bad news is that newspapers are dying and comic strips are fading into history. The good news is that the Huffington Post is guaranteed to make you laugh every day.

For example, here’s how New Age guru Deepak Chopra opened his article about Rush Limbaugh yesterday.

“When Michael Steele, the hapless chairman of the Republican Party, lost his bearings and called Rush Limbaugh’s style ugly and incendiary, everyone knew it was the truth,” the subcontinental sahib said. “But it was a perfect example of an inconvenient truth. The right wing has long used ugly, incendiary speech the way baseball players use steroids: to artificially pump themselves up. Limbaugh has taken to saying that he wants Obama’s policies to fail because they spell the end of an America based on personal freedom. This isn’t just a grotesque exaggeration; it disguises the very thing the right wing has been doing when it curtailed civil liberties in the name of national security.”

Calm down. Take a deep breath. The left wing loonies always say things like this. Problem is, they can’t come up with a single example of “curtailed civil liberties” that supposedly occurred during the Bush years.

Now, let’s move on to Chopra. As your grandmother always used to say, just consider the source. This guy’s made a fortune by writing fifty books about New Age nonsense.

Hey, maybe that could be the name of his next book.

“New Age Nonsense from best-selling author Deepak Chopra. Coming soon to a Barnes & Noble near you. Don’t miss this insightful exploration of mind, body, and how to pick a reader’s pocket for $21.95.”

Hey, Deepak! Don’t forget to mention us in the forward.

paul harveyAn editorial in Rochester, New York’s largest newspaper started out as a warm tribute to Paul Harvey ended up as a cold attack on Rush Limbaugh.

The editorial, headlined “Talk radio needs a little more Harvey,” went down hill quickly and contained these gems:

“A lot of word pictures are drawn every day purporting to describe how inflexibly partisan and flat-out angry the world of popular communication has become. But few things tell the tale better than two names.”

“In short, Harvey was the velvet glove. And Limbaugh is the iron fist. Take your pick.”

“Limbaugh is really a politician who campaigns constantly without actually running for office. Harvey was pure radio — a great voice, stories to tell and information to impart. Without the clenched fist.”

Guess we shouldn’t be surprised, because the name of the Gannett newspaper is the Rochester Democrat.

Alec Baldwin

Former leading man Alec Baldwin stopped berating his teenage daughter long enough to berate Rush Limbaugh. Photo: Wikipedia

When Alec Baldwin’s leading man career went down the tubes, he turned to television comedy with some success. Now he’s turned to writing political satire. At least we think it was satire.

How else can you explain the article Baldwin wrote the Huffington Post titled, “Hoping the GOP Gets Its Act Together” in which he says, “Rush Limbaugh is an uneducated, marginally talented, overbearing, recovering drug addict who was, at least according to Wikipedia, ineligible for the draft because he had cysts on his ass.”

This from a man with anger control issues who has been accused of physically abusing his wife and psychologically abusing his teenage daughter.

But those accusations pale in comparison to the most damning fact about Alec Baldwin: He appeared in 39 episodes of Knott’s Landing and isn’t ashamed to say so.

Note: Make sure you read the entire article for more insight into Republicans, like what he says about “hypocritical evangelicals who are too lazy to raise their own children properly…”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rDncw6uQ_I width=300 height=188CNN political analyst Bill Schneider had a conniption fit over Rush Limbaugh’s CPAC speech last weekend.

In fact, we’re pretty sure we saw a little spittle forming at the corners of his mouth at the mere thought of Limbaugh.

“Well, this was a very angry speech,” Schneider seethed. “… The tone of this speech was mocking, bullying, it was full of contempt, and I thought it was a very harsh speech. One that while it rallied the conservative audience, also angered a lot of Democrats and people who aren’t particularly partisan just by the tone of it.”

Based on our keen powers of observation, we think this is what professional psychologists call “projecting.” And what amateur psychologists call “the pot calling the kettle black.” And what IHateTheMedia.com calls “Tough luck, Bill.”


Formerly significant former Vanity Fair and New Yorker editor Tina Brown appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program last week and worried that a new liberal TV commercial attacking Rush Limbaugh will backfire.

“The only thing I do regret, though, is that this giant, you know, blow-hard bullfrog, you know, Rush Limbaugh is being turned into this big icon,” Brown whined.

A liberal group that calls itself “Americans United for Change” produced this spot, which paints Republicans as “a party of no” and includes Limbaugh’s comment that he wants Obama’s policies to fail.

“Jeremiah was a bullfrog,” Brown might have said, “he was a good friend of mine. And Rush Limbaugh’s no Jeremiah.”

And that, my friends, is what happens when Tina Brown has too many banana daiquiris and simultaneously channels Lloyd Bentsen and Three Dog Night.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kop_8D89ojwCrotchety, caustic David Letterman had CBS News anchor Katie Couric howling with laughter when he called Rush Limbaugh a “bonehead.” The late night loser then said Limbaugh looked like an “East European gangster.”

Couric joined the in the fun and delivered this rib tickler, “So much for my interview with Rush.”

Can someone tell us why either of these two are still paid millions of dollars a year?

Letterman was once unpredictable and inventive, but those days are long gone. Couric was once…well…we don’t really remember what her claim to fame was.

It’s sad to see what happens to people when they lose in the ratings year after year after year.

janeane_garofalo_200x300Unfunny comedienne Janeane Garafalo showed up on Keith Olbermann’s show last night. She was as unfunny as ever, but Keith laughed Olber-maniacally anyway.

“The type of female that does like Rush is the same type of woman that falls in love with prisoners,” she said. After mentioning Richard Ramirez and Charles Manson, she continued by saying, “Eva Braun, Hitler’s girlfriend, that’s exactly the type of woman that responds really well to Rush.”

“(Former CNN anchor Daryn Kagan) dated him,” the ever-so-charming Garafalo whined, “so either she suffers from Stockholm Syndrome, a lot like Michael Steele, who’s the black guy in the Republican party who suffers from Stockholm Syndrome, which means you try and curry favor with the oppressor…any female or person of color in the Republican party is struggling with Stockholm Syndrome.”

Janeane Garafalo, equal opportunity hater.

Update:
The Red Eye Crew has a good time ridiculing Garafalo (and Keith Olbermann) on this and related comments. It’s funnier than hell and worth watching. Includes video of Garafalo and Olbermann with their quotes.

Low resolution security camera photo of mysterious blonde stalker. Please notify authorities if you have any clues to this person's identity.

Ooh-la-la. According to police reports (view PDF), Rush Limbaugh is being stalked by a mysterious blonde named Melanie. She’s 30-40 years old, and drives a new, white sedan.

Wait. It’s a woman? Then it might not be Matthews after all.

According to 911 records, the mysterious blonde attempted to follow Rush’s car through the gates of his Palm Beach estate yesterday. She hightailed it before police arrived.

Rush was cool, calm and collected about the whole thing. “I’ll deal with it,” he said in an email to Jose Lambiet, a columnist and blogger for the Palm Beach Post. “Part of the territory.”

That’s all we know. Ten-four, over and out. (We don’t actually know what that means, but we’ve wanted to say it ever since we were kids and watched Broderick Crawford on that old “Highway Patrol” TV show.)
