→ It is Too Bad Apple Bloggers Do Not Recognize the Media’s Bias Outside the Apple Context

Rush Limbaugh mentions something that I have been thinking a lot lately:

The way you [,Apple Bloggers,] see [the majority of the tech media] propping up Samsung and Google and Android and the way these guys are ripping Apple to shreds, would you try to see that in the mainstream media? Would you open your eyes and see what’s going on in the mainstream media? Would you try to open your eyes and see that in the mainstream media, the Republican Party is Apple, and the Democrat Party is Samsung, Google, and Android.”

It is really too bad that more of the tech bloggers do not recognize that same type of misdirection is happening over in the political side of the news media, too.1 It feels like it is a waste of their analytical skills.

  1. This recent quote from Ben Brooks about the continued NSA scandal reminded me of Limbaugh had said: “That’s on me for not fully reading the source documents and taking the Post at its word.” 

→ Rush Limbaugh on the response to Marco Rubio’s Drink of Water

You know, CNN has played video of this. I don’t know how many times they have played this over and over and over again. They’re actually asking if this is the new Watergate, if this is the end of Rubio’s career. I have to admit, folks, I didn’t know he drank water. You ever seen a politician do that in public? You don’t see it. You don’t see ’em eat in public. You don’t see ’em drink water, particularly between sentences. Now, I’ve seen football players drink Gatorade and whatever the hell else is down there on the sideline between plays, but drinking water during a speech, dry mouth during a speech? If I wasn’t so strong I’d take the day off to deal with the emotional wreck that this has made me. But I’m hanging tough.

Rush is simply the best at what he does.

→ Rush Limbaugh on Ray Lewis

Oh, by the way, Ray Lewis, something I meant to say. Ray Lewis has got a simple explanation or answer for all this. What difference does it make? At this point, what difference does it make? About Atlanta in 2000 and whatever happened in the nightclub — and the deer antler spray, what difference does it make? Hey, it worked for Hillary. If it worked for Hillary, it’s bound to work for somebody like Ray Lewis.

Well said, El Rushbo. Well said.

→ RTP Mentions on Limbaugh’s Radio Show

But do you remember six months ago, maybe not that long, three months ago we were told that North Carolina was gonna determine the election. And particularly, specifically what they call the Research Triangle. There were 49,000 yuppies. Remember this story? Forty-nine thousand people who live in this triangle area, Raleigh-Durham, they were gonna determine the outcome of the election. It was a serious analysis. I’m not making fun of it. It was people who were dead serious about it. It was a very persuasive case that they were making.

Obviously it was prior to the Democrat convention, and it talked about the circumstance over in Charlotte and Obama having trouble with the black vote and that that Research Triangle area, yuppies over there, whoever they are, the great undecideds, the independents, whatever the makeup was. I don’t remember. I shoulda looked the story up. I shoulda gotten it from the archives. I just remembered this on the fly, just remembered it now. Everybody said the whole election could turn on North Carolina and those 49,000 people. Let’s just assume that they’re right and the election’s over, folks. He-he-he-he-he-he-he.

Shoot. I was so close to casting the deciding vote in the entire election.
