RUSH: That became this on Politico today. Headline: “Rush Limbaugh Tells Caller Not to Watch Fox — Rush Limbaugh had a message for one of his callers: Stop watching Fox News. ‘Tony from Tampa’ called into Limbaugh’s radio show on Monday to complain about the lack of outrage from the right over President Barack Obama’s policies and the liberal war on coal, according to a transcript. Tony mentioned Julie Roginsky saying coal was ‘horse-and-buggy stuff,’ and Limbaugh asked who she was. Tony said she was a ‘Democrat-Obama-Alinskyite’ on a panel with Charles Payne and Neil Cavuto, at which point Limbaugh cut him off.”
We don’t cut people off here. I simply said, when he mentioned Cavuto and Charlie Payne, “Okay, he’s watching Fox.” And since it’s Payne, it’s gotta be the Fox Business Channel. I mean sometimes Payne crosses over, maybe sometimes Payne guests on Cavuto. But I said, “Tony, stop watching these people because they’re intended to make you question your sanity. You need to stop watching these people because they’re not gonna change.” That has become “Limbaugh told listeners to stop watching Fox.” I did not tell anybody to stop watching Fox. I said stop listening to these people that make you so mad. What else am I gonna say?
I don’t watch these people that make me mad anymore. I gave that up years ago. What is the point? I told Tony they’re not gonna change. They’re there to tick you off. Don’t let it get to you. It’s not like I haven’t criticized Fox before. Have they ever heard me talk about Geraldo? The grim reaper? I mean, it is I, El Rushbo, who has opined that whenever you see Geraldo on TV, somebody’s died. That’s when they drag him out. Is that telling people not to watch Fox? I know some of you people, “You said last week that the Fox morning show wouldn’t let you talk about the Republicans and immigration.” That’s true. But I never said not to watch Fox.
