LETTER: Who is Barnes to bash Limbaugh?

Friday, February 13, 2009 | 12:11 p.m. CST; updated 3:07 p.m. CST, Friday, February 13, 2009

Tracy Barnes recently wrote a piece ripping Rush Limbaugh, asking, among other things, why anybody would listen to a college dropout. My question would be: Who cares what a 2008 college graduate thinks about the world? It's true that Rush called Barack "the magic Negro," but he didn't create the term — it was coined by a black person.

Twenty million people a day listen to Rush. How many read your paper?

Who are you Bryan Chapman to bash Barnes???'re doing exactly what Barnes did, expressing your opinion and contributing to the political dialogue. Except you didn't support your viewpoints with much besides a logical fallacy... "a lot of people listen to Rush, therefore he must be right" Not very convincing Bryan. More than 20 million people listen to Al Jazeera too, does that make their opinions right? An article is only as good as its ideas and the facts used to back them up.
