CNN asks psychiatrist : Why do people listen to Rush Limbaugh ?
Hot Air ^ | October 19, 2009 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 10/19/2009 7:25:00 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Via Breitbart. I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you her answer, but suffice it to say, it’s not much of a surprise. I’m not sure why they stopped with a psychiatrist, though. Wouldn’t Jane Goodall have had some potentially valuable insights here? Or an FBI criminal profiler?

Remember, this is the “objective” cable news network.

It was an easy story to do since everyone at CNN has a psychiatrist on speed dial.

Knowing how liberals feel about Rush and us, I'm surprised they didn't ask an oncologist about how big of cancer we are.

Rush Limbaugh has a great opportunity.

He should have a guest psychiatrist on his show, and ask him/her why people watch CNN?

Having a “Mental” reason for listening to Rush will help the Socialists set the stage for Mental wards for forced
Lobotomys for Conservatives.....

Why! You say....” Thats Just Crazy”!!

Sure Commerad....just have another Prozac....

Why do people listen to Rush Limbaugh???

Because they want to hear the unbelmished truth and make up their own mind of what to believe or disbelieve without the filter of a government slanted propgandist from so called mainstream media

I was going to state why then figured why bother. The very fact they went to a psychiatrist for the answer (forget the response just the act itself) is telling in its own way. These people are very disturbed.

“He should have a guest psychiatrist on his show, and ask him/her why people watch CNN? “

And the psychiatrist should say... “they don’t”

And why do leftist leaders kill those who speak in opposition (Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc.)? And why does our new evil dear leader give mouth kisses to Castro, Noriega, Chavez and future mass murderers?

The reason is Conservative talk is based on Truth...and Liberal Radio is a Lie Factory of Crap.

Randi Rhodes is a Commie skank.

Carol Costello laments that that there are so few liberal talk radio shows compared to conservative talk radio shows - as though the deck is stacked against liberals. Hellllloooooo Carol - I know you and your commie crowd refuse to accept that the general populace isn't liberal. It has nothing to do with conservatives dominating the airwaves. You seem to want to dictate matching a liberal show for a conservative show, in order to manipulate the market.

Carol - even though you and your ilk are tying to do everything under the sun to destroy free markets and 'choice' (and no, I'm not talking about baby murder), you need to realize that if the messenger is worth hearing, the audiences will flock. Quit trying to con an manipulate everyone - you are as transparent as glass.

"Why do people listen to Rush Limbaugh?"

Because they have, conservatively, 40 IQ points on you, Poindexter, as well as a grasp of history, a set of rationally defensible moral and ethical guidelines, a coherent personal philosophy, and a fully-functioning human soul.

These are things you don't, and won't ever have. Ever.

In the Soviet Union, political dissenters were portrayed as insane, because of course no sane person would not agree with the communists.

No doubt the same brave new world the left would like to achieve here.

Asking this of a liberal psychiatrist is like asking Senator "Sheets" Byrd why black people are the way they are.

In the former USSR it was common for The State to designate dissidents as “crazy” —they’ be institutionalized and medicated. So this is very telling and might even be a slice of things to come.

Are you the real Robin Masters? Because I think your show totally rocks. I’d say you’re the only psychologist I can stand.

I take issue with the ‘liberals are more compassionate’ nonsense.

If liberals are more compassionate than conservatives why is it that MANY MORE CONSERVATIVES donate to compassionate causes while liberals donate to Harvard, Yale and, heh, Notre Dame?

Doubt it? Google it — who donates more to compassionate causes, liberals or conservatives.

Be careful; if he is a liberal and knows that you're a conservative, he'll stick his finger in your mouth.

The very first time I heard Rush Limbaugh was in my car back in 1992. I laughed out loud and thought, “My gosh here is a guy with common sense and isn’t afraid of saying what he thinks.”

So does that make me a minion of a playground bully? Do I need more Prozac?

And another thing —

I’ve always heard that the reason someone choses psychiatry as a major/ profession is because they themselves need a couch.

CNN asks psychiatrist : Why do people listen to Rush Limbaugh ?

Let's reverse the concept: "What kind of problem do people who watch CNN have?"

I'm not too concerned, there's only like 11 or 12 of them these days...

A better question would be to ask: “Why do the few people that watch CNN continue to watch that news network?  Is there some kind of masochism involved, or is CNN just doing a very good job of keeping people ignorant?”
