Sarah Spitz is an NPR producer. That means at least a portion of her salary is subsidized by American taxpayers, giving her the comfort to make the news, rather than report the news. Today Sarah is making the news, and many are reporting it. Sarah wants Rush Limbaugh to die, and she would like to be around to watch. See a video below with Megyn Kelly interviewing Daily Caller publisher Neil Patel. See an update below and remarks from Sarah Spitz and a Daily Caller correction of her employer.
“Not having wished anyone dead, nor having fantasized about watching someone die, I cannot possibly relate to this,” Limbaugh responded.
I can only surmise. I think most people on the left live in a world where merit is irrelevant. Theirs is a world in which connections, networking, kissing ass and obedient sameness are rewarded. I am the antithesis of all that. I am a legitimate, achieved and accomplished Number One and I’ve made it on my own and without them and without having followed their proscriptions. I think they are also jealous that I just sold my NY condo for a 125 percent profit while their homes are worthlessly underwater.
Funny thing….a number of my friends sent me the Daily Caller piece and the most shocking thing to them in the story was the advocacy of having government shut down Fox News. That the left wants me dead was not a big deal to them because it was nothing new to them. I think that’s hilarious.From NewsBusters:
So much for the idea that NPR is an oasis of civil discourse in a desert of vituperation. Spitz is a producer for trendy-hot NPR station KCRW and its nationally distributed talk show Left Right and Center (which could be called Three Leftists and Tony Blankley). But Spitz has also done stories for NPR's evening newscast All Things Considered.The Daily Caller first reported the online exchange between about 400 "elite" media, academia and activists. This group is known as JournoList and they say they chat about sports, and "non-incendiary subjects." But what The Caller found when they obtained copies of the exchanges, is a group of people who worked hard to elect Barack Obama and deflect his detractors - especially the Not-Very-Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor. The truthful way to say this is, the group decided not to print the truth, or even print both sides and let the people decide what was truthful and what was not.
The Caller shows that some on the JournoList tried to turn focus on what Wright was saying by attacking prominent media and White House employees by calling them racist. Both Fred Barnes and Karl Rove were specifically targeted for the "racist" tag. We are naive to think they stopped at Jeremiah Wright. Volumes of real news, and real investigative reports never made it to sunshine because the media would not risk Obama losing. Read excerpts from JournoList here.
The JournoList even discussed how the FCC might pull Fox News' broadcasting license. Here's Limbaugh's response to that:
...how about the LAW professor who thinks the FCC can pull Fox’s license? Fox does not have a license. The FCC does not grant Fox its right to exist. And this guy teaches law.The people on the JournoList deemed themselves worthy of shaping the outcome of the 2008 elections. I believe the same was done as we tried to bring out Obama's Socialist/Marxist background, his close associations with radical Weatherman Bill Ayers, and of course, the birth certificate issue.
In the meantime, Rush Limbaugh lives. If there is any justice in this world, Sarah Spitz' career on the taxpayer dime will die.
I made poorly considered remarks about Rush Limbaugh to what I believed was a private email discussion group from my personal email account. As a publicist, I realize more than anyone that is no excuse for irresponsible behavior. I apologize to anyone I may have offended and I regret these comments greatly; they do not reflect the values by which I conduct my life.The Daily Caller is correcting Sarah Spitz' employer. She is a producer for NPR-affiliated KCRW, but does not work for NPR. She has contributed six pieces to NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
As the Spitz story shows, there is a bit of blur inside the public-radio system when it comes to the programming and the payroll. Spitz worked for KCRW, but she offered freelance reports for NPR. KCRW gets taxpayer money from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and sends some of it back to NPR in fees for its news programming. Spitz's show Left Right & Center is on the NPR Podcast directory and airs across the country on almost 40 NPR affiliates.
