Storyline

The conservative talk show host mixes his own monologue with actual news footage, viewer videos, occasional phone calls, and rarely, guests. Nick Africano gathers public information from the streets of New York, while "Our Man in Washington" gathers material from media figures and politicians. "Our Woman in Washington" was added to the show when the elderly reporter yelled at Clinton "everything's going down the drain! Is that true?" and graciously accepted the semi-regular role. Often members of the crew would get on stage and do their thing, frequently Debra Phillips, with whom Rush would carry on arguments about such topics as "When is a hug sexual harassment?" Limbaugh terminated the show in 1996 after deciding the half-hour format, and its burial at the wee hours of the night was no longer an effective medium.

Great and crazy effort, that never quite worked.
4 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Limbaugh apparently had an idea to make even more money. You could get on TV. You could get more advertisers. He's always been big on charging, which is fine.

So as was suggested, here, he took the idea of topics from his radio show, added some monitors, and basically did the same thing for the camera, with a small, selected studio audience. He was grating and insulting, depending on your point of view, or childishly arrogant, or defiantly confident, to others. You could see the mixed emotions on that even in quick shots to a friendly audience. Imagine if he had allowed the same screamers from his one-shot appearance on the cancelled Sajak 'tonight-show'-type show.

His show never got the start it needed. People say there is no anti-Limbaugh, anti-conservative, liberal conspiracy in the media. Well, there was when it came to his TV show. The thing was slated for 2-3AM in the wee hours of the morning, across the country. People had to set their VCRs (remember those?) to tape the show. This was before the explosion of the 'web' in 1998-1999, and the explosion of radio and TV conservative talk shows about the same time, most of them thanks to Limbaugh. You literally had frightened liberals, a couple of years before the Limbaugh victory in 1994, trying to silence his voice on TV. That's why Hillary is running as a conservative, now, and not a liberal. People have had it with delusional, control-freak liberals lying to them like Dan Rather and Mary Mapes, or trying to keep other views from them. A decade ago, the liberals thought people would go along, or wouldn't notice. Then came 1994. And Limbaugh was as grating, or as confident, as ever following that.

While O'Reilly turned out to be a quasi-liberal, and Hannity emerged as a rival to Limbaugh, both Hannity and Limbaugh remain not so much classic conservatives, Hoover conservatives, and certainly not bomb-throwing anarchic liberal ideologues, but simply average Americans, for the good and ill that implies. Hannity and Limbaugh are Americans as they've always been, for whatever political labels. And their fiercest liberal attackers are the poorly-educated, disenfranchised, trust-fund, entertainment and publishing business 'bohemians' that Americans have never historically trusted.
