Yesterday, on his nationally syndicated radio show, Rush Limbaugh read an e-mail that cited my Sunday post about “24.” Viewers were challenging Rush’s support for “24” because of the apparent propaganda, which I detailed in my post.
Rush posted the transcript and audio on his site, and linked to the post. Thanks, Rush!:
El Rushbo Impatient with Ornery “24” Critics
January 15, 2007
I must admit, I’m a little impatient with some of you people who are sending me caustic notes about the first two episodes of “24” last night. For example, I have two of them here, let me just share them with you. These are all from the subscribers at RushLimbaugh.com, members of 24/7. “Dear Rush, please read the following. It’s a column by Debbie Schlussel regarding this season’s PC bent on ’24’. Can’t we have one series which deals with the reality of Islam?” Next one. “Rush: I have mixed feelings about the new ’24’ season. I love the action, but I hate the limp-wristed liberal political correctness attitude toward the Muslims. Also, the undertone of bringing up all the mistakes of previous administrations and trying to make people fearful the Bush administration is trying to do the same. You probably don’t see it that way, but that’s how I felt about it. Regards and kudos, signed Richard.” There are a bunch of others who think that what we have here is a politically incorrect liberal bent on this program and on “24”, and that the Muslims are getting soft treatment and so forth.
