RUSH: A lot of people think if you’re on Fox, you’re conservative, and that’s not necessarily the case. So I think the root of understanding it is to understand really who is conservative and who isn’t. There are a lot of people who try to pass themselves off now and then as conservative, but if they’re challenged on it, they’ll deny it cause they don’t want to take the heat of being one. They’ll say things like, “Well, I’m not one of those right wingers. I’m not a reactionary. I don’t make up my mind in advance,” blah, blah, blah.
But there are professional considerations, too. I mean, if you are in the media and you want to be Mr. Conservative? “Sorry, the job’s taken. It’s filled. You gotta go somewhere else.” So maybe you can you can be Mr. Moderate. Maybe you can be Mr. Reasonable Right-Winger. You find a niche for yourself, because the Mr. Conservative Leadership is taken. I’m it. So where are you gonna put yourself, then, in the professional media structure? There’s all kinds of explanations like that.
