So Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential footnote Willard Mitt Romney has his lunch handed to him on national television by the President of the United States and uber-right wing radio blowhard Rush “Rusty” Hudson Limbaugh III’s assessment is debate moderator Candy Crowley was biased towards President Obama
Rusty was especially outraged over Crowley’s fact-check of Mitt Romney on Libya, and bellowed she “kept feeding” Obama lines and interrupted Romney a total of twenty-eight times.
“In the real world, she would’ve committed career suicide last night,” he bloviated. “In the real world — in the media world I grew up in, her career would be finished.”
But wait, Rusty wasn’t finished, “She committed an act of journalistic terror or malpractice last night. If there were any journalist standards, what she did last night would have been the equivalent of blowing up her career like a suicide bomber. But there aren’t any journalist standards anymore. And she’s going to be praised and celebrated, probably even get a raise, give her another half hour on that show she hosts.”
In what world of reality is Rush Limbaugh qualified to comment on someone’s journalistic standards? First of all, one would need to have standards in order to judge someone else’s, and secondly, well, one would need to have standards in order to judge someone else’s.
