Steelman: Yes Rush, No Stern
In an interview last week, Sarah Steelman weighed in on Rush Limbaugh’s induction – for which she was present. Listen to it Here.
Steelman: To me it’s not controversial. He’s a famous Missourian. He made a difference in talk radio. I know the family quite well; they are very patriotic. They’ve contributed a lot to our state. And I’m proud that he’s being inducted. It was a very nice ceremony, and he had some great things to say about the state of Missouri…
KFNS: Let’s say Howard Stern were from the state of Missouri… would you still be in favor of that?
Steelman: Uh, I don’t know about that.
KFNS: And what’s the difference?
Steelman: I just don’t think that Rush Limbaugh has the Howard Stern style he’s talking about conservative ideas.
KFNS: But the standard was they’ve both been very successful in their industry?
Steelman: Well the standard was he’s changed the face of talk radio.
KFNS: And I would say Howard Stern has done that just as much, would you disagree?
Steelman: You know I haven’t watched Howard Stern and listened to him much, but I understand he’s pretty vulgar most of the time…
And back and forth….
