Dave Zirin Responds to Rush Limbaugh

By Gordon Nash

Dave Zirin, sports correspondent for the Nation Magazine, had this to say in response to Rush Limbaugh’s outpouring of rage against him:

Some are surprised that ownership isn’t welcoming Limbaugh with a passionate embrace because most owners are to the right of Attila the Hun. They are billionaires who have feasted at the public trough of corporate welfare while basking in tax breaks for the rich. In other words, they constitute Limbaugh’s base. But his membership in this exclusive fraternity of billionaires would violate the first rule of ownership: protect the bottom line.

The inconvenient truth is that no matter how much he rants and raves, no matter how often he calls columnists like Burwell, Sharp and me “state-run-media scum,” it’s the commissioner and the owners who believe that his history of ugly vitriol would be just too harmful to the NFL brand. You reap what you sow, and Rush Limbaugh has reaped a whirlwind.
