Hugh Hewitt: Rush Limbaugh’s Legacy

Rush Limbaugh died this week at the age of 70.

To say he was a giant in our industry of talk radio is an exercise in understatement.

When I talk about the format of talk radio on my own program, I have often said that “Rush Limbaugh built the mall. Everyone else just has a storefront in it,” and I was true then—I’m true now.

I’m grateful for my own storefront, but I’m particularly grateful to Rush for building the superstructure of our medium.

There’s no question: talk radio is more needed now than ever.

I’ve been doing talk radio since 1990. Two years earlier than that, Rush Limbaugh had started his syndicated show—and he was already a monster hit. He, a giant in the industry, helped me out—a newbie—cutting promos for me. He was one of the great gentlemen in the business—and he never stopped being a professional’s professional.

Rush Limbaugh will be greatly missed. But the mall that he built is alive and fuller than ever. And for that, we should all be grateful.

Rest in peace, Rush.

Hugh Hewitt: The Collapse of Trust in Television News

We are watching today a collapse of trust in television news, especially cable news.

Certainly, a percent or two of the 330 million Americans “trust” a handful of broadcasters with whom they agree. Rush Limbaugh probably has the highest raw number of devoted listeners who really trust him—but he has no one even remotely his equal on television.

The vast majority of Americans believe, with good reason, that all those TV talking heads on television are somewhere on the political spectrum and that all the journalists, producers and executives standing behind them bend the news to fit their politics.

Journalists of all shapes, sizes, platforms and personalities are presumed to be advancing an agenda because almost everyone on television is actually doing just that.

We need a new birth of news—new faces and production teams, new mission statements and, yes, new executives.

The Rome of television is in ruins, but it can be rebuilt.

For the good of the nation, it must be rebuilt.
