Radio show host Rush Limbaugh praised Nelson Mandela, the former South African president who died this week, as a man who suffered the horrors of apartheid and prison without letting it turn him "bitter and angry."
Does Rush Limbaugh plant phony callers on his show, so as to get a certain viewpoint across that might not get aired otherwise? So think some of his biggest critics. Or, at least, they say they do. Talkers Magazine has the details:
A California State Senator, Leland Yee, has been receiving threatening messages by fax ever since criticizing Rush Limbaugh's pidgin Chinese remarks on his radio program last week. Rush, in his usual non-politically-correct manner, was poking fun at the Chinese President's remarks during his visit to the U.S. last week.
