Yesterday we told you about the JournoList member who joked about Rush Limbaugh’s recent cardiac scare, and yearned for the chance to watch him die before her eyes.

Rush Limbaugh has now responded to these revelations from the Daily Caller.

He told the Washington Examiner in part:

Funny thing….a number of my friends sent me the Daily Caller piece and the most shocking thing to them in the story was the advocacy of having government shut down Fox News. That the left wants me dead was not a big deal to them because it was nothing new to them. I think that’s hilarious.

And about that: how about the LAW professor who thinks the FCC can pull Fox’s license? Fox does not have a license. The FCC does not grant Fox its right to exist. And this guy teaches law.

Limbaugh added later, in an exchange with Newsbusters:

Earlier in this administration, the president and his hacks targeted me, his party targeted me and their groups targeted me. They are all the same. They are leftists, disguised as lawyers, judges, scholars, professors, teachers, reporters, anchors, senators, representatives, legislative aids, congressional staff, federal bureaucrats, etc. There is NO Media. We know that now. There is just an incestuous relationship among all these various groups and a revolving door connecting them all.

On the air yesterday afternoon, Rush told listeners:

Their networks are failing.  Nobody is reading their newspapers unless they make me the story.  Nobody is watching their cable broadcasts unless they make me the story.  They don’t get rating bumps unless they make me the story.  It’s totally understandable that they hate me.  It’s a little silly for them to want me dead.  What would happen to their ratings were I not around?
