Harsh Newsweek

In this week’s letters to Newsweek, Limbaugh-syndicating Premiere Radio boss Kraig Kitchin protests the harsh Evan Thomas Newsweek cover story on Rush:

“Your Oct. 20 cover story, ‘Rush’s World of Pain,’ does not even remotely portray the Rush Limbaugh I know. I don’t know anyone, for example, who knows Rush well who would agree with the statement in the article that “The man behind the curtain is not the God of Family Values but a childless, twice-divorced, thrice-married schlub whose idea of a good time is to lie on his couch and watch football endlessly.” To the contrary, Rush is a man very dedicated to his family, a loyal friend, a tireless co-worker and a terrific, caring and generous human being. He is a thoroughly enjoyable person in any setting, professional or social….I was shocked to see that this story was presented as news in your publication.”
