RUSH: Apple “Need To Hire Matt Drudge” For Their ‘NEWS’ App

RUSH: There’s a new app coming. Apple has a new app coming on their iOS devices, the iPhone and the iPad, and it’s called News. Have you ever heard of the app Flipboard?

Now, yesterday Apple posted job openings. They are actually going to hire human beings to put together this news app every day, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365. They have posted ads for journalists and the requirements are, certain degree, certain level of degree, education, from accredited J-schools. It’s just gonna be the New York Times all over again. It’s gonna be, pick your poison. It’s gonna be left-wing news. It’s gonna be standard, ordinary, mainstream, whatever you want to call it, Drive-By Media. It’s gonna be curated by human beings, put together by human beings, and they’re gonna hire journalists, which, Apple’s culture is liberal, too, so you know what it’s gonna be.
