RUSH: I gotta get a call here first because this is something that I saw while I was out that I had near the top of the Stack today. So we’re gonna go to Raleigh. Paul, glad you called, sir. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. I’m glad you’re back and doing good.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: My question for you is, does your percentage of being right go up when you call Meet the Press, Meet the Depressed, with the news out of NBC and the psychologist checking out David Gregory.
RUSH: You know, is this not the most amazing story? I mean, I’ve got a Stack here today that I could call everything in it, is it not the most amazing thing you’ve ever heard? There’s four or five of ’em in the Stack. I don’t know which one’s more amazing than the other. My accuracy rating ought to go up, you’re absolutely right. I’ve been calling the show Meet the Depressed for years. Paul, what have you heard about this? I’m gonna be up to speed with the latest ’cause you’ve been out there consuming the news on it. What’s the latest you’ve heard on this? What do you think you know about this story?
CALLER: I don’t know how accurate I have it, but NBC hired a psychologist to check out David Gregory and his family and friends.
RUSH: Yeah, but why?
CALLER: Because of the ratings.
RUSH: Yeah. That’s right. Folks, in the old days you know what would have happened? He’d get fired. If your ratings went in the tank you would get fired. It happened to me seven or eight times. It is absolutely true. “NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ has fallen to such ratings lows that network brass ordered psychological research of the host David Gregory and his family, in a bid to make him more likable.” It’s unheard of! You either are or you aren’t in this business. Psychological research for the host and his family in a bid to make him more likable. Why did he get the gig in the first place?
