RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, have I told you that there is no news in the news? And how many times have I told you that what you see on the TV news you should always be suspicious of? You should always suspect that there’s something else. You should always suspect that it may be entirely wrong. You should always suspect, with major network news, that there is a political agenda attached to everything they do. I use the term here “Drive-By Media.” It’s been awhile since I offered the full-fledged definition of what Drive-By Media is.
The true definition of the Drive-By Media is: they fly into a situation; they arrive on the scene of major breaking news; they make up stuff. They stir up emotions to a frenzied fever pitch. They spread lies, and then, after a few hours or a few days when the real facts emerge, they’re gone. They’re down the road doing it again on the next story, while everybody else is left in their wake with a mess that real Americans have to clean up. And that is exactly what has happened in Ferguson, Missouri.
And before you start shouting at me, “Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, Rush, the media didn’t do anything wrong here because they didn’t know about the video and the pictures at the convenience store with the cigar robbery.” Yes, they did. Don Lemon on CNN today actually admitted, “Some of us have heard rumors of a robbery involving the gentle giant.” Why didn’t you tell us of those rumors? Rumors have never stopped you before. They had heard.
