Rush Not A "Journalist"

Rush is a propagandist, not a journalists. The problems is, many of his listeners don't seem to realize that.
Some people have compared Michael Moore to Rush. Both Moore and Rush are re-enforce the preconceptions of their audiences. But at least Moore is using his camera to explore the outside world(albeit with a highly edited view) In this respect, Moore is the opposite of Rush, who lives in a very isolated environment. Moore, therefore, has more guts and is more willing to confront the people who disagree with him.
The bitter irony is that the right has long accused the left of being "pie in the sky". But, who’s out of touch now? Perhaps the right in general has gotten so good at taking control of "the message" they have forgotten about reality. And that’s why they’re in trouble.
