Limbaugh says he’s played golf with Charles and knows David, and “I can personally attest to their character, their citizenship, their decency. They are good people.”
They’re successful at everything … they do. You would think that people at the LA Times — objective, good-hearted, true-to-the-cause journalists — would be interested in the place they work staying in business. But nope. If a couple libertarians walk in there or if a couple conservatives walk in there? “To hell with it!” Half of them claim that they will quit. You have a financially sound potential buyer coming in and the deadwood self-deports. I think that’s a great thing.
Limbaugh says it would be a good thing if half of the newsroom walked out. “Bring in some fresh blood — people who appreciate a paycheck, people who actually want to save a dying industry, find ways to save a dying beast, which is the problem.”
His advice to the Koch brothers: “If you guys are serious about buying the LA Times, you need to get a promise in advance from those members of the Times promising to quit if you buy it. Get a written promise from ’em before you sign the deal.”
