Limbaugh: CNN Has Chosen Sides in Israel-Gaza Conflict

Rush Limbaugh went after CNN on his radio show Friday, tearing into the network for its biased coverage of the Israeli conflict in Gaza and asserting that CNN has officially taken sides in the conflict. And, he said, they’re not on the side of the good guys.

Limbaugh zoned in on a heated back-and-forth between CNN’s Erin Burnett and Ron Dermer, the Israeli ambassador to the United States, over CNN’s Israel coverage. Limbaugh mocked how “bent out of shape” CNN is about what Israel’s doing and called them a “sorry excuse for a news network.”

He charged that the media wants to make Hamas into an “innocent victim” and that CNN is guilty of taking sides.

“This doesn’t happen much there the media gets called on their absolute–– it’s worse than bias. It’s just a lack of professionalism and everything. It is bias but it’s worse than that. They’ve chosen sides here.”
