Question by phule_poet: Has Rush Limbaugh ever made a racist or stereotype comment?
In the wake of his controversial statements regarding Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, Rush Limbaugh has resigned from his position on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown pregame show

Rush Limbaugh:
“I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well,” Limbaugh said. “There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”

NABJ president Herbert Lowe said in a news release:
“”ESPN’s credibility as a journalism entity is at stake, It needs to send a clear signal that the subjects of race and equal opportunity are taken seriously at its news outlets.”

Donovan McNabb:
“It’s somewhat shocking to hear that on national TV from him,” McNabb said. “It’s not something that I can sit here and say won’t bother me.”

In the wake of his controversial statements regarding Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, Rush Limbaugh has resigned from his position on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown pregame show.

Was it a racist comment?
Was it a comment worthy of a resignation?
Were these comments the real reason behind Limbaugh pulling out of his bid for an NFL team?

I think we should all address Herbert Lowe comments. I think there is a huge statement when a sports network views Limbaugh as a serious enough threat to credibility in journalism.

Has Fox news started to get viewers to boycott the ESPN given the Limbaugh pull out?
Monk, The quotes posted are the direct comments Rush Limbaugh Herbert Lowe, and Donavan McNabb made
Lancelot , I think you are dead on.

The comment skirted the line but in my opinion never really crossed it. He knew what he was going to say and knew it was going to create some flak. Talk about some people allowing themselves to be manipulated. I don’t like Limbaugh at all but the truth is the truth.
You may be right but there have been comments made by the groups you’ve mentioned who have equally paid the price. I’ll agree, just like Limbaugh, the result has more to do with the political reaction than the actual comments made.

Take CNN and Fox news, both have an ongoing history of pushing there opinions to extreme, over blowing the actual events. Its becoming increasingly hard to see through the hype. For independents like me this is hard.
