Rush Limbaugh Vs Fox News: Fox News Host Calls Limbaugh’s “slobbering” remark odd and condescending (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Friday, January 14th, 2011 |
Earlier this week after the shooting in Tucson and after Gabrielle Giffords somehow survived a gunshot wound to the head, there was a memorial service held for all those that died during the tragedy. After an opening prayer and some words by Janet Napolitano and others, Obama came out to address the crowd and to memorialize the victims. For the first time in a long time, both sides have come together and ignore their partisan differences and reflect on this tragedy.
Unfortunately, many voices in the media have been trying to divide Americans during this time. Bill Maher said the right was mostly resposible for the shooting, even though Loughner was not right-wing. Bill O’Reilly played clips of Chris Matthews saying Rush Limbaugh should be shot in the head and said Democrats and liberals were being despicable in the way they are handling the situation. Meanwhile, Rachel Maddow scolded everyone for politicizing the memorial.
This was before the memorial though and before Obama’s emotional words. After the memorial there were mostly reviews for Obama and the memorial itself but one person has decided to stick his neck out and try to divide people. Rush Limbaugh yesterday said that Republicans on Fox News were “slobbering” over Obama at the memorial, and that it was essentially a pep rally and PR stunt for Obama. Limbaugh criticising Fox News is rare and surprisingly, Fox News didn’t sit down and take it. Charles Krauthammer responded to Limbaugh’s comments on Bret Baier’s show, here’s his response:
