Lim­baugh com­ment draws un­due at­ten­tion

The Washington Times Daily - - Opinion -

Rush Lim­baugh is his own boss, but he does need ad­ver­tis­ers. I ap­pre­ci­ate his courage in ex­er­cis­ing his First Amend­ment rights in say­ing what he be­lieves, but he’s smart enough to know his de­trac­tors on the po­lit­i­cal left would seize his state­ment about the con­tra­cep­tion man­date in our po­lit­i­cally cor­rect so­ci­ety in an at­tempt to de­throne him (“Rush Lim­baugh apol­o­gizes to Ge­orge­town law stu­dent for in­sult­ing her,” Web, Satur­day).

It’s amaz­ing. We have deadly tor­na­does, $5-a-gal­lon gas, a near-nu­clear Iran, a pres­i­den­tial elec­tion in eight months, yet the com­ments of a long-out­spo­ken ra­dio talk­show host get top billing. What a me­dia we have. DICKIE BEN­ZIE Char­lotte, N.C.
