Rush Limbaugh is no worse than leftist TV and radio show hosts


Letter Writer

I think Taurean Small needs to implement his own advice regarding Rush Limbaugh. If you don’t like what the guy has to say then don’t listen to him.

I think you, like many others, have forgotten exactly what Rush Limbaugh is: an entertainer.

He is not on the radio because he is an authority on the topic of conservatism. He is on the radio because he says outlandish things. He is no different than a Glenn Beck, Rachel Maddow or Keith Olbermann.

I know your personal political affiliation makes you blind to the fact that leftist TV and radio show hosts say controversial things like this all of the time.

The funny thing is that selectively choosing quotes that highlight Limbaugh’s past struggles with drugs shows the hypocritical nature of your columns.

You say people like Michael Vick deserve a second chance, but people like Rush Limbaugh are denied the same opportunity in your eyes because of the fact that they are Republicans.

It is because of this that I have chosen to ignore your columns for the remainder of my college career at NIU.
