I can't say something nice, so I'm not gonna say anything at all.

He used to brag about having quit smoking. Did he ever really quit?

Re: Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer

Sad news to hear and there are plenty of people to carry on his legacy when he's gone.

Re: Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer

I used to listen to Rush in the mid-1990s, back when he was funny instead of a ball of rage. I heard him say that he wouldn't get lung cancer from cigars because a person only puffs cigars, and doesn't inhale them like a cigarette.

Wrong again.

It's a good example of how the Right in this country frequently dismisses scientific evidence if it conflicts with their preconceptions. I also heard him say that there are vaccines for bacterial diseases, but not for viruses. He was arguing against spending money to research an AIDS vaccine. I got a polio vaccine thirty years before he said that, and I'd bet money that he did too. And son of a bitch, now we have PReP. But he had to argue nonsensically that science was on his side in allowing AIDS to continue.

I wouldn't wish that on anyone. I hope he recovers, or at least is as comfortable as possible as he goes through this.

I wouldn't wish it on anyone either. I went to the emergency room a few weeks ago because I was having trouble breathing. I still haven't recovered. But what I have is much better than having your lungs rot away with cancer.

I had a truck driver with a collapsed lung at my shop one day. I felt like I was suffocating just watching him try to walk and breathe.

So Rush was cool at one time? It wasn't long ago I thought Alex Jones had interesting things to say. I first heard him in Linklater's Waking Life. What happens to these guys?

Here's hoping he can carve out a successful career cooking meth as he battles this illness.

Thoughts and prayers. Let's all light one up for him! In all seriousness, even a cancer on the public discourse doesn't deserve actual cancer.

There is no one more responsible for where we are politically as a
country than Rush is.

I don't know how Rush, Shapiro or Levin have audiences on the radio.
Limbaugh has the voice of an obnoxious glutton.
Mark Levin has this very shrill, annoying, constantly angry voice. Like a whinier Gilbert Gottfried.
And Shapiro sounds like some sleazy salesman the way he tries to speak so fast, like it's obvious he's trying to pull one over on you.

Michael Savage engages in extremely hateful demagoguery, which is why I doubt he'll be the Right's go-to guy. Well actually, considering the current administration, that might indeed make him the next Rush. I'll say this though, he's got the old school "New Yawk" radio voice and delivery. Better voice for radio than the others.

It's a waste of time to even listen to their shows. Fine, there biased right wingers. But they just talk AT the listener almost non-stop. Occasionally they'll take a call from sycophants who kiss their ass, and ONCE in a while, they'll choose to put on the air an inarticulate, or radical caller, who's supposed to represent the Left, for a brief moment, just so they can end the call and rant about the Left for another 10 minutes.

Was talk radio always like this? In the 70s and 80s movies it seems like the radio hosts had back and forth discussions with their callers and even debates. Right wing radio is just like non-stop propaganda. What's the point of listening if you already share the exact same opinion as the talk show host? What new thing are you getting from it?

Re: Rush Limbaugh has advanced lung cancer

Savage was the “next Limbaugh” like 15 years ago. But he got kicked off his cable news show, which many might be surprised to learn was on MSNBC when they weren’t so one sided.

Anyway, he blew his chance.

I think Savage just has a podcast now but he always delivers good one liners.

So it's that he's entertaining but not necessarily informative? What do you think of Colbert or Trevor Noah? I hear they're quite witty.

Informative but more entertaining. I refuse to watch Colbert.

I don't find those talk show hosts to be too informative since they have an incentive to lie and exaggerate just to keep their audiences happy and appear "loyal" to them.
If you want less biased info on current events where do you go?
