BTW, many of the commentators on other networks also use inflammatory rhetoric, I believe Schultz called one of the FOX female commentators a "slut", Matthews never misses a chance to call many of the FOX news personalities "Racists"or worse, Madow still questions many of the FOX news people intelligence by referencing them as "stupid, dumb and just not well informed", we wont even go into what they think of the Tea Party. So it isn't just Rush, but it's about our culture ,we love the gotcha type of reporting and great sound bytes, forget about substance of content, or for that matter Truth, its more about the ratings which equals the best sound byte, forget about actual news journalism.
