lashed out at what he called a “hit piece” against Fox News chief Roger Ailes that appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, citing author Tim Dickinson’s “arrogance and smugness.”
The article, “How Roger Ailes Built the Fox News Fear Factory,” says that “Fox News viewers are the most misinformed of all news consumers.”
It points to a poll that claims Fox fans are more likely to believe the stimulus package destroyed American jobs, that U.S. Muslims support the establishment of Shariah law, and that scientists are in doubt about manmade global warming.
Limbaugh takes the article to task, disputing it point by point.
“The stimulus package not only caused job losses, it continues to cause job losses,” he said. “The stimulus package is killing the U.S. private sector…. The government is growing; the private sector is not.”
The conservative icon disputed Rolling Stone’s opinion that “Ailes traffics in the emotions of victimization,” insisting that Fox viewers are more grounded than the magazine’s readers: “The Fox News viewers are ahead of the game, much more connected to reality than Rolling Stone writers or readers.”
