Rush Limbaugh, who became a conservative icon through his radio show “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer. He was 70. Limbaugh was a staunch Trump supporter and made claims President Joe Biden did not win the 2020 presidential election “fair and square,” CNBC reported.
Limbaugh suffered from Lung cancer the last few years after a life filled of cigar smoking that even included sharing cigars with democrats routinely. Which is worth pointing out because for 3 hours a day he attacked them relentlessly for over 30 years. Limbaugh is actually the person who JUMPED AGGRESSIVELY on the repeal of the FCC fairness doctrine in 1987.
FCC Fairness Doctrine-
The fairness doctrine of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, was a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was honest, equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the policy in 1987 and removed the rule that implemented the policy from the Federal Register in August 2011. (Boliek, Brooks (August 22, 2011). “FCC finally kills off fairness doctrine”. Politico.)
Now let me first and foremost say I never supported the comments Rush made about Donovan McNabb in 2003 or any racist comments he ever made. I also don’t share any view point with any commentator that says anyone is better or less than the other.
However Limbaugh wrote children’s books about American heroes and SHOCKINGLY WAS FRIENDS WITH ELTON JOHN. He connected and had discourse with the people who disagreed with him.
Jesse Spector is a disgrace and shows how Liberals have no desire to have discourse with conservatives. The FCC act repeal may have empowered Rush to become what he was, but now every person who is a #Activist doesn’t want to talk.
Jesse Spector called Rush a terrible human however Jesse Spector a “SPORTS JOURNALIST” at a once great website now has to get views on dead spin. Dead spin was part of Gawker Media that Hulk Hogan destroyed, the media now can’t lose any followers or viewers by listening and talking about our divisions.

Former television host Bill O’Reilly tweeted: “The legacy of Rush Limbaugh is clear: the most successful radio broadcaster in history. Mr. Limbaugh provided a conservative balance against the dangerous left wing corporate media machine.”
