It seems not even a man's death is sacred anymore.
Sure, it’s well understood that those who choose to live a public life will be more visible, and therefore will undoubtedly suffer from more criticism, but there is a time and place for such discussion.
In the hours following the announcement of an icon’s death is neither.
The Washington Post and The New York Times both described Limbaugh as a “provocateur” in their headlines and both lead their obits with uncanny descriptions of the broadcasting giant.
“Rush Limbaugh, who deployed comic bombast and relentless bashing of liberals, feminists and environmentalists to become the nation’s most popular radio talk-show host and lead the Republican Party into a politics of anger and obstruction, died Feb. 17 at 70,” the Post began.
“Rush Limbaugh, the relentlessly provocative voice of conservative America who dominated talk radio for more than three decades with shooting-gallery attacks on liberals, Democrats, feminists, environmentalists and other moving targets, died on Wednesday,” the Times similarly wrote.
Additionally, the Times bashed Limbaugh on its homepage, writing that he “pushed talk radio to the right with misogynistic and racist language and conspiracy theories.”
Limbaugh died on Wednesday after a year-long battle with lung cancer.
He was not only an incredibly beloved broadcaster, but also a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom – an honor bestowed upon him by President Donald Trump.
