Rush Limbaugh The Topic on The Daily


On Monday The New York Times podcast The Daily focused an episode on the legacy of conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh, who died last week at the age of 70 from lung cancer.

Host Michael Barbaro started off the episode by saying, “for decades he broadcast mistrust and grievance.”

Then, Times reporter Jim Rutenberg mispronounces Rush’s home-town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, which would have played right into how Rush perceived the mainstream media, out of touch with middle America.



  1. So a vile racist horrible vicious person who went out of his way to make so many people’s lives miserable and reveled in their misery should get a pass at death because why EXACTLY?! Let’s treat him in death the way he treated others in death, specifically his AIDS update segment where he CHEERFULLY mocked those that have died of AIDS. Keep that same energy. Good riddance.

  2. This and other media/podcasts couldn’t even wait until the man was buried and his family had a chance to grieve before slamming the him and his accomplishments. Though not a fan of Mr. Limbaugh, I find this classless.
    I get it, the show and host were controversial to say the least and many didn’t like them, but shouldn’t they have taken the so called high road and just waited a bit before piling on with the hate?
