Skip to comments.Are Media Wisely Running Away From Bogus Rush ‘Phony Soldiers’ Story?

On Monday, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) stepped onto the floor of the Senate and strongly denounced talk radio host Rush Limbaugh for what have proven to be out of context statements made by the conservative personality on his program last Wednesday.
Yet, with the exception of a CNN segment aired Monday, and articles by Fox News, USA Today's On Politics blog, The Hill, NewsMax, and the New York Post, virtually no major media outlets covered Reid's statements.
Not the New York Times. Not the Washington Post. Ditto all three broadcast network evening news programs Monday, and the Associated Press.
This raises an important question:
Have most major press outlets correctly concluded that the leftwing organization Media Matters did indeed cherry-pick and misrepresent Limbaugh's statements thereby making earlier reports on the subject erroneous?

Reid may be a fool,but he’s THEIR fool and they will shelter him from adverse publicity any way that they can.
NewsBusters is turning out to be one of the most important sites on the internet.
Limbaugh needs to spend three or four days on the air covering every detail of the Harry Reid real estate scandal. EVERY STINKING SHRED OF EVERY DETAIL.
This needs to be front and center.
The democrats are completely bought by the Soros organization Moveon and must do as they say. Sellouts all the way for politics and money.
Nice to hear Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist denounce this bogus attack on Rush, on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show. Maybe MSNBC suits decided one of their shows needed some light of truth on this despicable made up attack. Maybe MSNBC decided one Keith Olberman is more than enough as an outlet for Media Matters bile. Or maybe they decided Rush would win this and they wanted some cover.
FNC is still screwing it up.
Watched FNC b/c they mentioned Rush and they had a useless republican who simple was a doormat for the Democrat who pushed all the DNC “blame bush for war” talking points.
With Republican Senators like these, we are fighting evil with rubber guns.
Get your “Tom Harkin Absolute Moral Authority Card” here:
I had the same thought. They're trying to protect idiots like Reid from themselves.
They are trying to trigger the "Everybody Does It" response, which causes any good Leftist to just throw up his hands and reset. Unlike a Somebody Elses Problem Field, which requires a 9-volt battery to generate a field large enough to hide the Empire State Building, and Everybody Does It Generator can run off the energy generated by a fly's beating wings.
Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING
The MSM covering up for the DNC Brownshirts?
Actions worse than McCarthyism are glossed over?
Does this mean that it won’t be etched into the pages of our childrens’ history books?
Probably waiting for another angle...maybe the vet ad.
Now Michael Reagan is on...saying this is going to get worse. He is doing a great job! Steve asks if this is a war from the Left? Yes, the fingerprints of Soros are all over this trying to silence us in an election year.
Reminds me of the scene in Monty Pythin’s Holy Grail, “run away, run away”!!!
Rush really needs to take out a full page ad in the NYT and stick it to the lefty elite on this issue.
No, the DBM is cynically keeping this below the radar, so as to placate the kooks while avoiding a public fight which Limbaugh would win.
They are covering for their morons.
Did you hear about OJ’s watch?
