The media, Limbaugh said, might very well cooperate with the “monitoring” program as a way to “get even closer to Obama” and “impress” him:
“Remember, Obama’s the king. They all serve the guy. They’re all on the same team.”
Then Limbaugh predicted that the FCC got the idea from journalism professors.
“Folks, if you don’t think that that’s entirely possible, you are not paying attention to what’s going on,” he told his audience. “There is no journalism anymore. (…) The purpose of the media in New York and Washington is to advance the Democrat Party agenda.”
The liberal media’s strange silence about this proposal simply serves as proof, he said.
“There isn’t any reaction to this where you would think there would be,” Limbaugh pointed out. “It is conservatives standing up to defend the media. They’re not standing up in righteous outrage or indignation over what would happen to them.”
