Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, Talk radio es at age 70 after battle with lung cancer

, JUST RELAYING AGAIN IN CASE YOU HAVE NOT HEARD THAT RUSH LIMBAUGH AT 70 YEARS OLD HAS DIED.. He WAS BATTLING LUNG CANCER., THE WORST LEVEL OF LUNG CANCER. You COULD POSSIBLY BATTLE.. He WAS A CHAMPION OF CONSERVATIVE CAUSES AND YOU KNOW REVOLUTIONIZED. The MEDIA INDUSTRY BY AT LEAST PAYING ATTENTION TO THOSE CAUSES AND EARNING A LOT OF CONTROVERSY IN THE PROCESS, BUT NO ONE REALLY QUITE LIKE RUSH, WHETHER YOU AGREED DISAGREED. He MADE TALK, RADIO VERY ENTERTAINING.. He HAD A KNACK WITH WORDS AND JOINING DESPAR RAT EVENTS AND EXPLAINING IN WAYS HIS AUDIENCE WOULD UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE.. Those EVEN WHO WERE NOT HIS FANNEDS, ADMIRED MIGHTILY., SAYS SOMETHING OF HIS PASSING THAT ALL THE MAJOR NEWS NETWORKS ARE NOTING IT AT SAYING AT VERY LEAST. He WAS A VERY EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR IF YOURE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE POLITICAL FENCE, A WORTHY ARTICULATE, STIMULATING FOE. DAVID ASMAN, MY COLLEAGUE A GOOD FRIEND, STUDIED THAT CAREER AND IMPACT OF CONSERVATIVE THOUGHT. If YOU THINK ABOUT IT, DAVE REALLY BEGAN WITH RUSH LIMBAUGH MAINSTREAMING IT.. In A WAY YOU COULD ARGUE SIMILARLY BUILT. You KNOW THE CHANNEL WERE AT FOX BUSINESS FOX NEWS. What HAVE YOU. AT LEAST GIVE IT AN EAR, GIVE IT MORE ATTENTION. UNTIL THEN HAD SORT OF PUSHED ASIDE. gtgt. He WAS GOOD FRIEND WITH ROGER AILES, WHO REALLY STARTED FOX NEWS 24 YEARS AGO.. But BEFORE THAT HE HAD ALREADY COME ON THE SCENE.. I FIRST MET HIM WHEN I WORKED AT quotTHE WALL STREET JOURNALquot WHEN I WAS OP ED EDITOR AT quotTHE WALL STREET JOURNALquot.

Back IN THE MID 1990s., HE CAME OVER quotTHE WALL STREET JOURNALquot. Editorial PAGE DEALS WITH A LOT OF SOPHISTICATED MONETARY POLICY AND ECONOMIC POLICY AND SUCH. YOURE MORE LIKELY TO SEE LARRY KUDLOW ON THAT PAGE THAN YOU ARE RUSH LIMBAUGH. But WHAT HE DID WAS TRANSLATE THE VERY DENSE STUFF. We WERE DEALING WITH ECONOMIC POLICY, PUT IT IN EVER DAY LANGUAGE THAT FOLKS ON DAY LANGUAGE THAT FOLKS ON RADIO COULD HEAR DRIVING TO AND FROM WORK. HE HAD A WAY OF TAKING COMPLEX MATERIAL WITHOUT SIMPLIFYING IT. But PUTTING IT IN STRAIGHTFORWARD TERMS, ALWAYS WITH THE NOTION THAT THE WAY AMERICANS DEALT WITH THESE POLICIES THE WAY AMERICANS USED. This INFORMATION WAS UNIQUE BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOMS THAT WE HAVE HERE.. He ALWAYS CONNECTED EVERYTHING THAT HE DEALT WITH WITH THE BASIC FREEDOM VALUES THAT WE, AS AMERICANS SHARE.. That WAS WHAT CUT TO THE HEART, I THINK OF HIS PHILOSOPHY AND HIS MESSAGE ON THE RADIO., AND I NEVER SEEN ANYBODY DO IT.. There WAS AN OLD SAYING WHEN I WAS A FREELANCE WRITER THAT IT IS EASIER TO WRITE A 5000 WORD PIECE FOR quotTHE ATLANTIC MONTHLYquot THAN IT IS TO WRITE A 500 WORD PIECE FOR quotREADERS DIGEST.quot. He TOOK A COMPLEX SUBJECT AND BOILED IT DOWN TO ITS ESSENCE.. It IS AMERICANISM THE WAY NOBODY, NOBODY HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO. NEIL, YOU KNOW DAVID. You HAVE DEALT WITH YOUR SHARE OF ISSUES THAT COME UP IN LIFE, VERY BRAVE HOW YOU HANDLED THAT IN YOUR FAMILY.

So I TEND NOT TO LOOK EVEN SO MUCH AT THE POLITICS LEFT OR RIGHT OF SOMEONE AS TO HOW THEY HANDLE THINGS THAT DONT ALWAYS GO AS PLANNED. AND HIS YOU KNOW: BRAVERY THROUGH LUNG CANCER, WHICH IS ONE OF THE MORE TROUBLESOME YOU KNOW, CANCERS OF ALL, A STAGE 4 LUNG CANCER AT THAT AND HIS WILLINGNESS TO KEEP GOING THROUGH THE SHOW AS LONG AS HE COULD. HE ONLY STOPPED DOING ON REGULAR BASIS. I BELIEVE IN THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS AT THAT. AND THE MAINTAIN THAT, WITH SMILE, A WINK, A NOD AND A LITTLE RIB HERE AND THERE, I ALWAYS SAY, WERE JUDGED A LOT IN LIFE, NOT HOW WE HANDLE THINGS THAT GO WELL, BUT THE THINGS THAT DONT. THERE. I THINK LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES COULD READILY AGREE SHOWED BRAVERY IN SPADES.. How DO YOU THINK HE HANDLED ALL OF THIS. gtgt? I YOU SAID IT PERFECTLY.. You KNOW ME, YOU ALWAYS HANDLED YOUR SHARES OF EXPERIENCES WITH GRACE AND HUMOR. RUSH DID EXACTLY SAME. HIS BROTHER DAVID. Our SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO HIS ENTIRE FAMILY AND HIS WIFE. HIS BROTHER DAVID WRITTEN NUMBER OF BOOKS. If GOD HAS ULTIMATE POWER, WHY DOES HE FORCE US TO SOME SUFFER THINGS? We DO THE ANSWER YOU HEAR FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO DEAL WITH THIS DIFFICULT SUBJECT. These ARE TESTS THAT REALLY TEST OUR SPIRIT THAT TEST OUR SOUL.. Sometimes, I THINK IF WE MAKE THE BEST OF A BAD SITUATION, WE CAN FIND OUT THAT IT INCREASES THE VALUE OF OUR LIFE.

. I THINK RUSH LIMBAUGH UNDERSTOOD THAT, AND HE USED THE PHYSICAL ADVERSITY THAT HE HAD IN ORDER ADVERSITY THAT HE HAD IN ORDER TO BECOME A BETTER HUMAN BEING.. I COULD SEE THAT HAPPENING.. He DIDNT LIKE TO TALK A LOT ABOUT HIS AILMENT ON RADIO.. He WOULD ALWAYS SAY THAT BEFORE HE DID., SOMETIMES HE FELT REQUIRED TO BECAUSE HIS AUDIENCE WAS SO CONCERNED ABOUT HIM. WHEN HE DID. It WAS QUITE CLEAR WHAT YOU SAID: NEIL THE WAY TO HANDLE THESE THINGS VERY OFTEN GOES AGAINST YOUR INITIAL REFLECTION WOW THAT HURTS.. Why DID IT HAVE TO HAPPEN TO ME.? He NEVER GOT INTO THAT. Why DID IT HAPPEN TO ME SITUATION.? By THE WAY HE WAS OBVIOUSLY A HEAVY SMOKER.. He SMOKE AD LOT OF CIGARS.. He USED TO SPEAK GLOWINGLY ABOUT GOOD CIGARS. THAT WAS UNDOUBTEDLY RELATED TO HIS LUNG CANCER, BUT HE NEVER GOT INTO THE. Why ME STUFF.. That IS A SPIRAL IF YOU GET CAUGHT IN IT DRAGS YOU RIGHT, DOWN.. Instead, HE ROSE ABOVE IT.. I THINK I THINK, WAS A BETTER MAN BECAUSE OF IT. NEIL, A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE TALKED ABOUT HIS CLOSENESS WITH DONALD TRUMP. DIDNT START OUT THAT WAY AS AN EARLY CANDIDATE, I DONT THINK IT WAS INSTANTANEOUS AS IT WASNT FOR MANY IN THE CONSERVATIVE COMMUNITY, BECAUSE Donald TRUMP WAS, YOU KNOW FITTING WITH THAT TYPE., BUT HE LATER ON TO BE GOT TO BE ONE OF HIS FIERCEST DEFENDERS. IM WONDERING IF THAT WAS VERY INSTRUMENTAL, SAY WHAT YOU WILL OF PRESIDENT TRUMP IN RALLYING SUPPORT FOR A LOT OF HIS CAUSES.

The TAX CUTS, THE CUT IN REGULATIONS RALLY A PARTY THAT WAS FRACTURED, CERTAINLY NOW VERY FRACTURED AROUND. This NOTION THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS IN OUR CONSERVATIVE DNA TAX CUTS CUTTING REGULATION, THE OTHER STUFF, NOT SO MUCH, AND THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT NOW IS A GAPING VOID. IM WONDERING HOW THAT HOW THAT MOVES BEYOND RUSH LIMBAUGH NOW UNTIL. gtgt, I WOULDNT CALL IT A VOID. BECAUSE OF RUSH LIMBAUGH HE KNEW ABOUT HIS INFLUENCE.. He DID HAVE EXTRAORDINARY INFLUENCE.. I FIRST MENTIONED THAT HE FIRST MET HIM 30 YEARS AGO AND CAME TO quotTHE WALL STREET JOURNALquot EDITORIAL PAGE AND FINDING WAYS TO CONSTANTLY FIT INTO HIS MEDIUM AND HIS AUDIENCE.. He ALSO REACHED OUT WHEN EVER HE WAS ON VACATION OR WAS SICK AND COULDNT DO HIS RADIO SHOW HE WOULD ALSO GET YOUNG TALENTS. People LIKE MARK STEYN, FOR EXAMPLE, WHO WOULD SUBSTITUTE FOR HIM.. He WAS ALWAYS LOOKING OUT FOR OTHER VOICES..

What do you think?
