It only takes one show for Rush Limbaugh to show what a hypocritical jerk he is.
At the start of the show, Rush makes jokes about reporters in Egypt who have been detained — and typically beaten — by the army:
I mean, even two New York Times reporters were detained. Now, this is supposed to make us feel what, exactly? How we supposed to feel? Are we supposed to feel outrage over it? I don’t feel any outrage over it. Are we supposed to feel anger? I don’t feel any anger over this. Do we feel happy? Well — uh — do we feel kind of going like, “neh-neh-neh-neh”?
But later on, in the very same show, Rush learns that two Fox News reporters have been beaten and are hospitalized in Cairo:
According to Mediaite, Fox News’ Greg Palkot and crew have been severely beaten and are now hospitalized in Cairo. Now we were kidding before about The New York Times, of course. This kind of stuff is terrible. We wouldn’t wish this kind of thing even on reporters.
Hat tip to Bradblog, where you can hear the audio (if you can stand to listen to Rush).
