Labeling Limbaugh

October 04, 1992

I resent your appellation of Rush Limbaugh as a "right-wing" radio host (TV Times, Sept. 13). As you seem to insist on labels for those who are not politically correct, you could have at least referred to him as a conservative, which is not as inflammatory a buzz word.

Would you call Whoopi Goldberg, Arsenio Hall, Jay Leno or Phil Donahue "leftist" talk-show hosts? No way. Yet some people consider them to be out in left field.

This kind of subtle insertion of political posturing into so-called objective journalism is typical of The Times and the media, in general.
