NewsBusters Ignores Rush's Flip-Flop
Topic: NewsBusters

Tim Graham wrote in a Jan. 31 NewsBusters post: "On Wednesday's Rush Limbaugh show, the host spotted the first 'Drive-By tentacle' reaching into the John-McCain's-too-old bin." But Graham is ignoring the real news here: Limbaugh is now defending someone whose views he has been attacking for weeks.

The refusal to highlight the flip-flop is puzzling since the MRC has emphasized Limbaugh's opposition to McCain and tried to shoot down the idea that McCain's ascent is reflective of Limbaugh's lessening influence.

Are both the MRC and Limbaugh now so resigned to the idea of McCain being the GOP nominee (and rather abruptly so, dontcha think?) that they are now willing to hold their noses and defend the guy?
