Limbaugh was disgusted by the abuse being heaped upon actor Brad Pitt’s mother, Janet, who is being hounded by angry leftists for daring to criticize Obama (FREE audio).
“Democrats on Twitter are demanding that she die or be killed,” Rush explained. “They are calling her names like the B-word and the C-word and so forth. All she did was send a letter to the editor of the local newspaper in Springfield, Missouri. She’s come out against gay marriage. She has come out against Obama and Obamacare, pretty much everything Obama stands for.”
Limbaugh also made a bold prediction regarding CNN’s failing ratings fortunes, after it was revealed that the once all-powerful cable news giant’s ratings had slipped to a 20-year low.
“I think they’re gonna move further to the left,” Rush told listeners, “to try to even ‘out-left’ MSNBC.”
The new Talk Stream Live “Power 50″ has just been released, and once again, Michael Savage defeated 48 other talk radio hosts for a prestigious spot on the list.
Talk Stream Live “sampled over 1.2 million listeners during the first 6 months of 2012 to produce The Power 50 Report – the 50 most influential talk show hosts on the Internet and on mobile devices.”
“We are proud to report that Rush Limbaugh is No. 1 and Michael Savage is No. 2,” said TSL. “These are the most listened-to talk show hosts in the world.”
Mitt Romney called into Hannity’s radio show to debunk the falsehoods and distortions he says are being spread about him by the Obama team.
When it comes to job creation and outsourcing, said Romney, it’s actually Obama’s policies that have driven American jobs overseas. The president has also allowed foreign-owned companies to rake in taxpayer dollars, the presidential hopeful explained (FREE audio).
Is Iran planning to shoot down Western airliners if Israel attacks the regime’s nuclear program? Klein investigated that story this week, along with the ongoing reports about Yasser Arafat’s autopsy findings, and rumors that Ross Perot wants to mine asteroids – with the president’s help.
Aaron Klein also offered a glimpse inside the mind of David Axelrod, who he calls “Obama’s brain.” Plus: David Horowitz called in with troubling revelations about the Democratic Party’s well-oiled fundraising “machine” (FREE audio).
President Obama has been trying to dismiss “trickle down economics” as a right-wing myth. This week, Mark Levin explained why Obama is wrong and conservative economic policies are right, citing the nation’s experience with Reaganomics in the 1980s (FREE audio).
No wonder Levin thinks that “Obama’s reelection would be national suicide” (FREE audio).
On a (literally) lighter note, Levin’s daughter Lauren joined him in the studio to sing “Same Old Story.” A conservative, Lauren Levin is a student at George Mason University and a summer intern at the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute.
Perennial New York Times bestselling author Glenn Beck is back on the list with his new book “Cowards: What Politicians, Radicals and the Media Refuse to Say.”
As of late this week, Cowards held both the No. 1 and No. 2 on Amazon.com’s list of political bestsellers, for hardback and Kindle e-book versions.
And now, from the left side of the dial …
Mike Malloy is “certifiably nuts. That isn’t in dispute” – so says Radio Equalizer blogger Brian Maloney, and after hearing this latest outrage from radio host Mike Malloy, it’s hard to disagree.
Conservative media mogul Andrew Breitbart might have passed away, but many progressives are still obsessed with the social media pioneer, to the point of lunacy. This week, Malloy “phoned Satan” to check up on the late author and activist. You see, in Malloy’s mind, Breitbart – who left behind a wife and four children – must have ended up there, since he’d dared to question Obama’s greatness (FREE audio).
“The liberal movement is nastier than ever,” notes Maloney, so much so that the crazy radio hosts’ meltdowns “don’t stand out as much as they used to.”
What a sad commentary on how far high-profile Democratic Party supporters have sunk.
