This Week in Media Bias History: Rush Limbaugh Is ‘Edgy,’ Just Like Hitler

October 6th, 2018 12:15 PM

No comparison is too extreme for liberals who hate Rush Limbaugh. On October 5, 2003, CBS Sunday Morning reporter Nancy Giles referred to the conservative radio star as “edgy.” She added, “Hitler would have killed in talk radio. He was edgy, too.” 

It’s awkward when a friend outs you as an overt political activist. It’s even more awkward when that happens on national television. On September 29, 1997, then-Today host Katie Couric talked to comedian Whoopi Goldberg about abortion and “choice.” Couric said to her, “You get out there and you march — because we’ve marched together.” Cringing, Couric replied, “No. I’m not allowed to do that.” 

Goldberg giggled and replied, “Oh, no, that’s right. We have not marched together.”
