Cool.


Mod update.
Ordinary Americans have dragged slowly but surely other big institutions to the truth. The big institutions were the last to arrive at the truth and some of them to this moment are still not there.

Now I realize that within this new alternative media there exists some jealosy,. I sense that some people don’t want to give the blogosphere the full credit. They have to parcel it out because every body wants a piece of the action; this is quite normal, this is human nature. The fact of the matter is that it was the blogosphere and it was a couple of sites: Powerline and FreeRepublic. And FreeRepublic has been one of the most impugned blogs / websites in the history of websites by the very institution that has been brought down.

When Dan Rather talked about partisan political operatives, he means those who lurk at FreeRepublic. Who is FreeRepublic, it’s ordinary Americans – liberals look down at ordinary Americans, don’t know have enough decision making power, [?] do the right thing, not smart enough …

You don’t know how much it grates on them at CBS that its something like FreeRepublic or one of their chat rooms or one of the FReepers there or the Powerline … you have no idea that it irritates them that that kind of person brought them down. An average, ordinary untrained journalist that … you just do not know how this irritates them inside. More than the fact that they got caught, it’s who caught them that irritates them.

And, so just as I started out … I was a fad, and I was a liar, and I made it up and I was bad for America and I posed threats to democracy, as the cover of Time said. So now the same things are being said about the bloggers. Fox news has had its turn and we all continue rotating in the criticism carousel of the left.

Rush used to think Freepers were conspiracy theorists.

Good to see he's changed his tune.

Way Cool ... Just as Rush was denigrated and dismissed early in his career, so are FReeRepublic and the Bloggers ... and the elite can't stand that. So says Rush. But guess what, folks ... we ain't goin' anywhere.

You beat me to the punch! I was just getting ready to post what he said when I saw your thread.

He mentioned FRee Republic over and over in his monologue. What he said was sooooo right on!! I've been taping the program, but no doubt we'll be able to find the transcript posted at his web site later.

BTTT!!

heh... he mentioned FreeRepublic grating CBS and other LEFTIST elitists.

That sort of grating, I classify as. "Passing about some "cheer". :)
If I can cause some media munchkin elitist snob or other LEFTIST indigestion or other misery, I'm more than happy to oblige.

Rush talking about bloggers breaking CBS story

I'm eternally grateful that Rush refers to us as bloggers and FReepers instead of the increasingly-inaccurate "Pajamahadeen."

I'd just as soon we don't get a name that smacks of the Islamist Mujahideen.
