Rush Limbaugh says media, Democrat ‘monopoly’ dates back to Civil War, how they ‘love Obama’

Durng an interview with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren on Tuesday night, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said there is an alliance between President Obama’s White House and the mainstream news media .

Rush Limbaugh donkeyhotey“They agree with him,” Limbaugh said. “They’re him. They are — I think they’re all part of the elitist New York-Washington-Boston media academic corridor and they think they are Obama. They think same education, same school, same world view. But there’s also, I think — and I’ve been doing my radio show for 25 years. And it’s getting to the point now where things are starting to repeat.  They’re hearing the same things over and over about the same issues.  And you realize that not a whole lot really changes.”

“And the interesting thing to me about Obama and the media, I think, Greta, the explanation — the short answer to your question — is in 1988 you had CNN, the three networks and the newspapers and that was it,” he continued. “There was a media monopoly. My radio show starts in 1988.Even by 1995, I was still the only conservative national media voice other than some magazines, National Review and so forth. It wasn’t until ’96-’97 that Fox came along and other radio talk shows and the blogosphere and the Internet blossomed and so forth.”

Calling it a ‘lost monopoly’ Limbaugh continued by discussing the alliance that dates back to the Civil War.

“I think that the medium is very aware they’ve lost their monopoly and now they’re in a competitive situation and I think they get as big a thrill, just as all Democrats do, of defeating conservatives as they do helping Obama,” Limbaugh said. “I think we’ve never lived in a more partisan country — Civil War not included, that was bad. But maybe aside from that, I can’t remember a time where it’s been more partisan, more divisive and getting worse and being done on purpose. The division is being done on purpose. The media has aligned with Obama to defeat Republicans, to defeat conservatives and Obama is all about that.  That makes them his best friend and vice versa.”

 

He explained that the circumstances surrounding the loss of that monopoly have caused members of the media to become more anti-conservative. And that has made for a greater partisan divide, he said.
