The mainstream media all but ignored the story of Republican Governor Scott Walker's fiscal success that led to a budget surplus in Wisconsin of $912 million, talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Friday.

"It was not reported on one cable network, much less all of them. It was not reported in The New York Times, The Washington Post, or the LA Times," Limbaugh said on his radio show.

The Fox News Channel ignored the story as well, Limbaugh explained. He said there was "not a syllable of this story discussed" on any of the network's opinion shows.

Walker's successes were particularly stunning since he is a "conservative Reaganesque" Republican governor in a predominantly Democratic state who has survived two recall attempts, Limbaugh said.

The changes Walker initiated exemplify what tea party members are demanding, Limbaugh maintained. Yet, he said the media instead chose to focus on comments New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer made in a speech Thursday, encouraging Democrats to work to curb the influence of the tea party.

Limbaugh suggested what Walker accomplished in Wisconsin was a "huge story for the tea party" and conservatism, because he implemented many of the reforms conservatives espouse. He argued the mainstream media generally ignored the tea party because Democrats were afraid of it.

"(The tea party is) being ignored and tamped down and impugned and criticized, because the Democrats are so afraid of it," he said. "Everything that we are demanding as voters, everything that you, as tea party members, are demanding, Scott Walker did."
