That Didn't Take Long… Liberal Media Begins Attack On Talk Radio
They’re still counting votes from Tuesday’s election but the liberal media is already attacking “angry” conservatives on talk radio.
They’re paving the way for the Fairness Doctrine.
The Los Angeles Times— the same news outfit that would not release video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Chicago Jew-bash– wrote about the angry conservative talk radio hosts today:
You have to give Rush Limbaugh a perverse kind of credit. At least when he is demonizing Barack Obama, fabricating Obama policies, blaming Obama for single-handedly causing the recession and the stock market crash, he doesn’t pretend to be fair.
Opening his first post-election rant against the president-elect, Limbaugh launched in with a certain relish. “The game,” he told his radio listeners, “has begun.”
Sean Hannity, on the other hand, insisted on feigning a post-election detente, telling his Fox News television audience last week, “I want Barack Obama to succeed.”
Didn’t he think anyone would notice that, just a moment later, he was back parroting the failed campaign argument that Obama is a “mystery”?
…But many on the losing end of last week’s election want to hold on to their anger. And there are those in the media — led by the likes of Limbaugh and Hannity — only too ready to feed that animus, along with their own ratings.
Look for Democrats to bring up the Fairness Doctrine sometime around July ’09.
