There are in my opinion two main factors contributing towards this entirely artificial importance-lacking controversy about Limbaugh. The first factor is what I would like to call the aversion from truth and the ambition of Limbaugh. In order to understand the controversy one needs to understand the motives behind why such a controversy is happening in the first place. The second factor artificially exploding this controversy is the fact that the American people do not want to turn on their cable news and be reminded of financial doom. That in turn persuades the media to display topics that are both irrelevant and truth distracting. The Obama administration and Washington pushing for further spending want further spending. In order to gain further spending they must avoid any skeptical moderate movement against further spending. The best way to stop such a movement from happening would be to create controversies that distract the average American moderate from grasping the actual spending going on within Washington. All the Obama Administration had to do was create an explosive controversy and also distract the masses from the real dealings of Washington. Rush was the prime candidate seeing that he loves controversies with him in the middle. The media knows the personality traits of America. America has a deep attraction towards the superficial while the media has a deep need for higher ratings that highly out value any pursuit of real knowledge. The entertainment Americans value (reality shows, celebrity gossip) more than prove that argument. If I was wrong and America was actually attracted towards honest debate, cold statistics and the overall truth then C-SPAN would be number one in the ratings. If you disagree with my analysis of the argument your only illogical argument against mine is that the American people are truth seeking geniuses and they truly do want to be informed about the broken republican party. The only problem with that argument is that whether truth seeker or not people knew the republican party was broken after the election and many knew it was broken before with the nation building and big government. The success of this controversy only further proves that Washington will continue to spend recklessly and that America has no care or respect for the truth and therefore itself. Things will only change once people have a personal need for the truth and by that time their need for the truth is irrelevant. An apathetic country at it's finest.
