Rush Limbaugh will no longer appear in this blog. We have too frequently noted his incivility, insults, and false statements as in the previous post. Limbaugh will appear in our Shameful list which will soon appear in the left column.
You can check on what prompted us to do this by clicking on Limbaugh in the left sidebar to read our previous posts. His comments in July 19th were the last straw.
Why he is allowed access to the airwaves, we don’t know. Free speech is wonderful but you don’t have to be given the privilege of being a broadcaster. Premiere Radio, one of the distributors of Limbaugh’s show, issued this bizarre statement after the conservative called graduate student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute:
“The contraception debate is one that sparks strong emotion and opinions on both sides of the issue. We respect the right of Mr. Limbaugh, as well as the rights of those who disagree with him, to express those opinions.”
Statements like this are the reason that civility is leaving our country. As we said, the right to free speech doesn’t mean you have to hire someone who abuses others.
The profit incentive overwhelms some people’s integrity.
