The despicable comparison of deceased media icon Rush Limbaugh to Ted Bundy by columnist David Leibowitz reflects poorly on the journalistic integrity of The Glendale Star.
Leibowitz joins Limbaugh’s many critics who apparently didn’t listen to the show regularly but use out-of-context quotes from liberal media sources to promote a false narrative rather than compete in the arena of ideas.
As one example, the source of a (racist) moniker to describe then-presidential candidate Barack Obama was a Los Angeles Times columnist. Limbaugh simply played a song parody that was based on the Times’ article. And Limbaugh’s statement that he hoped the newly elected President Obama would fail referred to the implementation of Obama’s clearly stated socialist policy objectives, not the man himself, a fact recognized by any objective observer. Then Leibowitz claims that Limbaugh ginned up hate? Pot, meet kettle!
Limbaugh espoused liberty-based values and educated his listeners in the liberal mindset. It is therefore no surprise to read of the vile leftist tweets and comments regarding his passing, unfortunately reinforced by your published op-ed.
If Mr. Leibowitz himself possessed any integrity, he would apologize and resign, but I’m certainly not holding my breath.
Bloated and foul opinion of David Leibowitz
I am not writing you about your errors in judgment regarding Jerry Garcia or Rush Limbaugh. It is not your errors but your ego. Your bloated and foul ego has resurfaced in a puny opinion piece in my little Glendale Star paper. I reply not to the opinion, nor the error, nor the phony accusations, but to your lie. The lie that you at any time in your existence as a radio jock running opposite Rush Limbaugh … that you David Leibowitz had a larger radio audience than Rush Limbaugh. I have never listened to you. I have never even heard of you, but I have heard of and heard Rush Limbaugh. I say “God bless Rush Limbaugh,” for he knew his talent was on loan. Perhaps 25 years from now, when you might discover your obvious lie that God himself and Rush are rolling in laughter at, God, at his judgment, will have mercy on your soul.
God have mercy!
