Earlier today as I was going through my accumulated mail, I set aside a letter I would normally discard. You see, I received an invitation to subscribe to the Limbaugh Letter. While I frequently enjoy Rush’s show, I’m not really a fan so didn’t really see need to receive his thoughts monthly in my mail box.
But, considering the latest left-wing smear against this conservative talk show host, I decided to subscribe to show my support (not that he really needs it) for this man who has never minced words in taking on the left, criticizing liberals who might otherwise go unchallenged in the mainstream media.
While Media Matters claims that Limbaugh “selectively edited” the “phony soldiers” transcript, that left-wing website fails to mention its own selectivity, not including any reference to Rush’s comments specifying what he meant by such soldiers. Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters finds that Media Matters cherry-picked and misrepresented Limbaugh’s statements. Not only that, he noted (as did I in my up-update to Bruce’s post) that the conservative talk show host was “basically reiterating what ABC’s Brian Ross and Charles Gibson reported last Monday evening just two days before Rush made his statements” (H/t Instapundit).
So, if Media Matters is going to go after Rush, well, then I’m just going to show my support by doing something I would not otherwise have done, supporting this conservative by subscribing to his newsletter. I encourage GayPatriot readers to do the same.
