why rush rules

rh

Have you noticed how the egotism of the TV or radio host grows with their ratings?

But Rush Limbaugh started with a healthy large ego and has remained consistent. Giving the listener EIB and balancing his bravado.

On TV, O’Reilly the Moderate, lost me a long time ago.(Three Cheers for Laura Ingrahm!) But now even Glenn Beck is growing tedious. The more their shows become about them, the worse they get.

On radio, Michael Savage is the worst. I used to hear some moments of brilliance on his show. He was very good with callers.

Broadcasting is like life: All things in moderation. The essential ego needed to do a talk show must remain in check. But Savage is like a crazy person and makes me nervous.

When we are plagued by commercial breaks every few minutes, to be selling your book all the time during the show, is bad form. So is trash talking your competitors. Rush never does that and has shorter commericial breaks than the rest.

Having been a DJ has served El Rushbo well (so has Paul Shanklin whose Obama imitation is priceless) and is no reason to mock the King of Talk Radio.
