Deda BS: Rush Limbaugh is aired to US troops (90* d) BS: Limbaugh aired at gov't expense to soldiers 03 Jun 04


Rush Limbaugh's radio rant is played for the troops at taxpayer expense, spewing his fact-free garbage to service men and women around the world. I just got an email about this, and I sent an email to Rummy saying that I found it deeply offensive. (It's a mass emailing, but I added my own PS.) Here's the story. Below is a clip.
Nearly a million American soldiers and Department of Defense staff are able to hear Rush Limbaugh due to the generosity of the American taxpayer and partisan decision making by the Pentagon. A recently published story on Salon.com gives new meaning to the phrase "fair and balanced." Salon reports that Rush Limbaugh spews his blatantly partisan views (he's repeatedly called John Kerry a "gigolo" and has said that Democrats "hate this country," among other tidbits) daily on American Forces Radio. This airing of such extreme and hateful partisan content must stop immediately.

The first hour of Limbaugh's daily radio show is aired at taxpayer expense to provide "a touch of home" to our soldiers. Limbaugh's show, on which he recently compared the torture of Iraqi prisoners to fraternity pranks, called the abuse a "brilliant maneuver" and compared the photos of said abuse to "good old American pornography," is the only hour-long partisan political talk show to be broadcast daily to U.S. troops.
