On his radio show today Rush Limbaugh defended Fox News by labeling both MSNBC and CNN respectively porn and child porn. If Fox News is talk radio, Limbaugh said, “MSNBC is pornography, and Obama likes MSNBC.”
Here is the audio from Media Matters:
Limbaugh said, “Obama is out there saying that Fox News is talk radio. I am living rent free in this guy’s head. Fox News is talk radio. If that’s true, MSNBC is pornography, and Obama likes MSNBC. CNN is child porn, my God folks…”
I get it. Rush is saying that since MSNBC is pornography and Obama likes MSNBC, then Obama must also like porn. This is elementary school logic at best. Obama has never said that he prefers MSNBC or CNN, but he has made it clear that he doesn’t like Fox News, but I don’t see what Obama and MSNBC have to do with porn.
Rush is equating talk radio with pornography and child porn. I don’t see where the comparison between Fox News as talk radio, and pornography comes from, and what did CNN ever do to Limbaugh to be labeled child porn? I assumed that MSNBC would be the child porn in his example, not poor old CNN, which doesn’t usually wade into the partisan media the stuff the way that FNC and MSNBC do.
Maybe CNN is child porn because they don’t mention Limbaugh enough? I don’t get it. I think Limbaugh’s liquid diet melted what was left of his brain. Fox News is like talk radio, and so is MSNBC. The White House comparison speaks volumes about what passes for news on these networks these days. On the other hand, Limbaugh’s comparison makes no sense what so ever.
