Rush Limbaugh: John King Got Exactly What He Wanted From Gingrich Showdown

Just like Juan Williams before him, it appeared that John King got “dunked on” by Newt Gingrich last night. However, Rush Limbaugh doesn’t think he’ll feel any shame for it. No, as Limbaugh explained to his listeners, “you cannot shame the mainstream media.”

“John King is proud of what happened last night. John King is a hero in the Mainstream media because he didn’t back down, because he continued to illustrate how it is that the media does really control the agenda. That was a demonstration of the power they hold over every public figure’s head, that they choose to hold like a guillotine. There may even be some jealousy and envy within the journalist ranks – Well, not journalists. Within the Democrat Party ranks. – because John King is a guy that got in Newt’s face, stared him down. And the fact that Newt told him off? It’s a badge of honor.”

Limbaugh didn’t think King was the only one who got exactly what he wanted. He argued that the “Newtster,” as “appalled” as he may have been, was almost certainly expecting this question and praying that it would come so that he could deliver the crushing take down he had planned. Swish!
