18. The Alternative Universe
To make his shtick and all hate radio work, they needed to create their own of exceptionalism. Rushbo's crafted an image of being both victim and middle ground. When he's slandering and sliming, his dittoheads believe he's sticking up for them (usually against their own best interests) and when he's attacked, he's always the victim. The only thing missing is any sense of responsibility as he can escape the heat by claiming he's just an "entertainer". Thus he can say whatever and gets a free pass cause so many in the corporate media have bought into this meme...and fear the bile and ensuing hate mail whenever they dare to be critical.
