Rush Limbaugh Blasts “Despicable” Liberal Media for Twisting Robin Williams Comments Around

by at .  Updated at . Comments

You won't believe this, but Rush Limbaugh is very unhappy with the liberal media.

On Tuesday, in response to Robin Williams' suicide, Limbaugh focused on the actor's political affiliation and seemed to imply that Williams killed himself largely because he was a Democrat.

"What is the left’s worldview in general?" the radio host asked. "If you had to attach not a philosophy but an attitude to a leftist worldview, it’s one of pessimism and darkness, sadness.

"They’re never happy, are they? They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry."

Limbaugh then pointed to three actor friends of Williams’ who had died young and said that the Oscar winner could never get over “the guilt that they died and he didn’t."

The radio personality came under fire for these comments, but Limbaugh didn't back down today on his program.

Instead, he blame the media for twisting his words all around.

Said Limbaugh:

"All of these low-rent, despicable, irresponsible, pathetic, so-called media watchdogs on the left are trying to make it sound like I said that Robin Williams gave up because he was a liberal and is hopelessly doomed to misery and despair because that’s what liberals are devoted to."

But Limbaugh insists his original remarks were focused on the way Williams' death was being covered, as opposed to the death itself.

"What I did yesterday was express some real concern over the fact that they’re glorifying this,” Limbaugh said of the media. “I was worried about the coverage of all this leading to copycats."

Mork (Mork & Mindy)
The role that started it all. Robin Williams starred as an alien on the late 1970s sitcom Mork & Mindy.

Another famous TV/radio presence, Shepard Smith, apologized after he implied on air that Williams was a coward for committing suicide.

Meanwhile, this awesome sports anchor found a different way to react to the tragedy:
