Rush: Media Get 'Thrill' Defeating Conservatives

On Tuesday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said the mainstream media get as much pleasure defeating conservatives as they do when they help liberals. 

“And I think they get as big a thrill, just as all Democrats do, of defeating conservatives as they do helping Obama,” Limbaugh said. “The media has aligned with Obama to defeat Republicans, to defeat conservatives. And Obama is all about that. That makes them his best friend, and vice versa.”

Appearing on Fox News’ On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, Limbaugh said President Barack Obama can say whatever and “do pretty much everything he wants” because “he’s got a slavish media.” Limbaugh explained that Obama is not “going to be called on it by the media.”

He also said that media is worried because they are finally losing their monopoly and “now they’re in a competitive situation.” He said the mainstream media still agree with Obama because they are “all part of the elitist New York/Washington/Boston media academic corridor,” and they think Obama has the “same education, the same schools, same worldview.”
