Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh is fighting for Trump supporters and other conservatives against a newfound enemy, one which recently turned on its base: Fox News.
Fox News has turned on its loyal viewers in the past few months. Conservatives have seen this as an ongoing process, watching anti-Trump sentiment growing among the media elites at Fox.
“You do not turn on your base. You do not turn on your audience, unless you’ve had some kind of — you just don’t — you don’t do it for the sake of the approval of your enemies. You don’t turn on the people who got you where you are because you would rather be friends with other people. You just don’t do it. And that appears to be what’s happened here,” Limbaugh said.
The wildly popular talk-radio host then turned to an issue most conservatives have understood for years: the fact that the left-wing mainstream media has been trying to destroy conservative and alternative media for years. The left has made it their mission to destroy Fox News, and any other news outlet that doesn’t push the Democrat narrative.
“The media has been desperate to blow up talk radio and Fox News. They’ve wanted to blow up Fox News ever since Fox News was founded and created… Why is it do you think — it looks like they may be having some success now in blowing up Fox. I mean, you’ve got the wife of one of the Murdoch brothers tweeting out: We did it, we did it, we got rid of Trump, we did it… So it looks like they may be succeeding in turning portions of Fox against its base,” said Limbaugh.
Recently, Fox News has begun to bend to left-wing pressure, spew Democrat talking points, and ignore serious irregularities in the November election. The news outlet has also followed the rest of the mainstream media in declaring Joe Biden president-elect, despite the fact that the Electoral College will not vote until December 14, and many states have yet to certify their election results.
“If the people running Fox succeed in destroying the distinction that Fox has from the rest of the media, they’re gonna destroy Fox. If they are successful in taking away from Fox the things that distinguish it and make it appear different from the rest of the Drive-By Media, what do you think’s gonna happen?” Limbaugh said.
“The reason they have not been able to do this with talk radio is we do not stab our audience in the back. We do not turn on our base. We remain principled and consistent. From me on down to everybody who does this on the conservative side, we are not apologetic. We do not seek the approval of people that don’t like us,” Limbaugh concluded.
