The Rush-Maher Double Standard Goes Beyond CNN

Although I was critical of Rush Limbaugh’s behavior last week, it doesn’t mean I am not critical of liberals who behave badly and the liberals who look the other way. Jeff Lord, via Brent Bozell, has enlightened us to Piers Morgan’s double standards when it comes to Rush Limbaugh and Bill Maher.

But CNN’s double standards are hardly confined to Morgan. Indeed, what does Anderson Cooper’s headline read today?

 “Rush Limbaugh’s apology spin”

So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Cooper didn’t see fit to challenge Maher when he called Sarah Palin “a ditzy housewife” during an interview following a GOP debate in June 2011.

Needless to say, if Rush hadn’t apologized there would be clamors for him to throw himself upon the mercy of the court of public opinion. But now that he has apologized, it isn’t enough. Liberals can’t bring themselves to believe that Rush actually apologized. Thefefore they believe the apology to be insincere.

This double standard with regard to Rush and Maher goes well beyond CNN. As I will demonstrate in a column I hope to have up on the main page tomorrow it goes all the way up to the Obama White House.
