Rush Limbaugh addresses Obama's criticism of Fox News

RushEarlier today, TV Rage told you about President Barack Obama's comments about Fox News. To the shock of no one, Rush Limbaugh heard these comments and took to the airwaves today to address them, saying that Obama was encouraging a "secondary boycott" against those that do not agree with him.

"I would love to take credit for this," Limbaugh said. "I'd love to say that I find myself here because of a brilliantly conceived and flawlessly executed strategy, but one of the reasons that Fox News and I stand out like sore thumbs here is because the rest of the media is gone. The rest of the media is in the tank. The rest of the media has long ago ceased doing their job. They are not reporting, they are not curious, they are not holding Obama accountable. They are on board. They are part of the agenda-advancement team."

The comments that Limbaugh is referring to what the commander-in-chief sees as reluctance from Republicans to compromise.

"One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates," Obama said. "If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it."

Who is right?

Both parties are now corrupt. Smut and vulgarity flows freely during prime time. The borders are wide open, encouraging free flow of drugs to young kids. The banks launder the drug money. Homosexual activity is rampant. The bankers that caused the collapse are still free to do it again. NAFTA goes against all real Americans. The Fed is a criminal enterprise. 11 million illegals to be given free passage. You have become Soylent Green. You have become >>> obsolete.
