On The Big Story, discussing Rush Limbaugh's recent "phony soldiers" comments, Jonah Goldberg asserted: "I've never heard actually a conservative basically flat-out deny the patriotism of the opposition." In fact, Limbaugh himself has done so. For instance, on his August 23, 2005, radio show, Limbaugh said, "It's time for somebody to tell the people on the left, you're damn right we're questioning your patriotism."
On Fox News Live, after hearing a segment of Rush Limbaugh's controversial comments characterizing service members who advocate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq as "phony soldiers," guest Carrie Lukas of the Independent Women's Forum asserted, "If you go on for another, about 30 seconds, you hear Mr. Limbaugh start talking about Jessie MacBeth." In fact, a 1 minute and 50 second discussion occurred between Limbaugh's original "phony soldiers" comment and his reference to MacBeth.
Many major media outlets that covered the controversy surrounding MoveOn.org's "General Betray Us" ad have yet to cover the bipartisan outcry over Rush Limbaugh's remarks characterizing service members who advocate U.S. withdrawal from Iraq as "phony soldiers."
