End of an Era: The Rush Limbaugh Show Shuts Down
On Friday, June 18, 2021 the Rush Limbaugh Show officially shut down the Golden EIB microphone. As it happened, it fell to my local Harrisburg radio host, WHP’s Ken Matthews, to be the last “guide” host that had shepherded the show since Rush departed to give back the talent he had on loan from God.

The following is a look back (via the MRC’s archives) at how the media trashed Trump’s State of the Union speeches as “psychotically incoherent” tirades “full of lies” and even “dog poop.”
Goodbye to My Brother — for Now
Losing Rush has been tough. Until a few very long weeks ago, he was always in my life. Like other siblings growing up in the same home, we shared experiences that were exclusive to us. Our parents instilled in us -- and we thoroughly absorbed -- their Christian values: their love of God; their unconditional love for each other and for us; their belief in moral absolutes, of truth, of right and…

Rush Explained, According to Cal Thomas
I wasn't going to write a second column on the passing of Rush Limbaugh but given the reaction from hostile and snarky individuals -- even from a few self-styled conservatives -- explaining his influence is key to understanding him and more importantly the movement for which he was such a powerful spokesman. As with the former president, Donald Trump, Limbaugh spoke for people who felt…

The Rush Limbaugh I Knew
The man who picked me up at an airport too many years ago to recall the date asked if I had ever heard of a guy named Rush Limbaugh. When I said I had not, he turned on the car radio and said, “listen.” After 15 minutes I was hooked. Limbaugh, who died of lung cancer on Wednesday at age 70, spoke my values. He didn’t tell people what or how to think, as his detractors often charged, but…

An Appreciation of the Rush Limbaugh Media Revolution
Call it Rush Limbaugh’s media revolution. To explain? Hop in the time travel machine and come with me back to 1963 and 1964. Arizona’s Republican Senator Barry Goldwater, dubbed “Mr. Conservative” as he was the unofficial standard bearer of the aborning conservative movement, was getting ready to run for president in 1964, and finally did so.

Why Are Post, NY Times Obits Nicer to Terrorists Than Conservatives?
It’s amazing how nuanced obituaries can be for figures that liberal media types appreciate. The portrait is always complicated. But less so when it’s a conservative. Conservative radio star Rush Limbaugh passed away this week and The New York Times slammed him with an obit about “hate,” “mistrust” and grievances.” The online version featured a sub-headline sliming him as “pushing talk radio to…
Rush Limbaugh: A Loving Brother and ‘a Friend to Countless Americans’
I am uniquely blessed to be Rush Limbaugh's brother in ways too numerous to count, and I am blessed to be in the special position of witnessing firsthand the outpouring of love and prayers from his, family, friends and fans. His wife, Kathryn, has been amazing and a rock throughout. I could fill a book with the well-wishes I've received. I sent Rush a link to my “mentions” column on Twitter so…
