Fox News compares Rush Limbaugh to Bill Maher, and accuses comedians of having a liberal double standard. (7:23)

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

LISTEN.

OVER THE PAST FEW WEEKS, THERE

HAS BEEN SOMETHING OF A

NATIONAL HULLABALOO, A

COUNTRYWIDE BROUHAHA, AN

AMERICAN (MUMBLING), ALL OVER

COMMENTS MADE BY RADIO SHOCK-

BLOB RUSH LIMBAUGH.

>> SANDRA FLUKE SAID THAT IT'S

TOO EXPENSIVE TO HAVE SEX IN

LAW SCHOOL WITHOUT MANDATED

INSURANCE COVERAGE.

IT MAKES HER A SLUT, RIGHT?

IT MAKES HER A PROSTITUTE.

>> Jon: SURE.

MY GOD.

THAT IS THE MOST NOXIOUS,

HATEFUL FILTH I'VE HEARD SINCE

EARLIER IN HIS PROGRAM OR THE

PROGRAM BEFORE THAT ONE OR

REALLY EVERY SHOW THAT HE'S

DONE FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS.

BUT THIS TIME, WHETHER BECAUSE

THE WOMAN THAT HE ATTACKED IS

A PRIVATE CITIZEN OR BECAUSE

THE WORDS CAME IN THE CONTEXT

OF ANY WOMAN WHO WISHES

CONTRACEPTION TO BE COVERED BY

THEIR INSURANCE PLANS IS A

MORAL REPROBATE, PICKING RUSH

LIMBAUGH'S POCKET SO THEY CAN

BANG LIKE HORNY BONABOWS,

WHICH IS TO SAY, BONABOWS...

LET'S FACE IT, THEY'RE ALL

PRETTY HORNY.

THIS TIME LIMBAUGH'S DAILY

NOON TO 3:00 AFTERNOON "MOUTH

DUMP" CAUSED OUTRAGE.

CREATING-- BY THE WAY, THAT IS

THE TITLE OF HIS PROGRAM.

"MY DAILY MOUTH DUMP."

HE CAUSED PROBLEMS CREATING A

LITTLE BIT OF A DILEMMA FOR

THE RIGHT.

DID THEY REPUDIATE

MR. LIMBAUGH, THEIR LION,

THEIR CHAMPION, A MAN

REPUBLICANS MADE AN HONORARY

MEMBER OF CONGRESS IN 1994, A

MAN THEY'VE CHOSEN TO HONOR

WITH A BUST IN THE MISSOURI

STATE CAPITAL?

THIS MAN.

>> OUR FRIEND RUSH LIMBAUGH

WHO IS SO INVOLVED LEADING THE

WAY ON THE CONSERVATIVE CAUSE.

>> Jon: BY THE WAY THAT IS AN

OFFICIAL TRIBUTE TO RUSH

LIMBAUGH ON THE HOUSE FLOOR.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU NOTICED

THE DATE ON THAT.

IT WAS OCTOBER, 2001.

YEAH.

MOTHER (BEEP).

WEEKS AFTER THE SEPTEMBER 11

ATTACKS.

REREPUDIATE HIM?

BUT IF THEY DEFEND HIM THEY

RISK THE IRE OF ALL THOSE

PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY WHOSE

HEADS HAVE NOT YET BEEN

DITTOED.

ALTHOUGH THERE IS A THIRD

CHOICE.

>> PEOPLE ON THE RIGHT WERE

GOING, HEY, WAIT A MINUTE.

THERE'S A GUY ON THE LEFT,

BILL MAHER WHO HOSTS THAT SHOW

ON HBO.

HE SAYS REALLY REPREHENSIBLE

THINGS ABOUT ALL SORTS OF

PEOPLE.

>> HE CALLED GOVERNOR PALIN

THE C-WORD AND THE T-WORD.

>> Jon: WHAT?

C AND T?

NO, NO.

PALIN CAN'T BE BOTH CAPTAIN

AND TENILE.

( APPLAUSE )

OH, REALLY?

YEAH, THAT'S PRETTY BAD.

AND (BEEP).

NO, THAT'S BAD.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I GUESS BY BRINGING UP BILL

MAHER, I GUESS BY BRINGING UP

BILL MAHER FOX IS SAYING, SO

WE'RE EVEN, RIGHT?

OFFSETTING PENALTIES.

LET'S JUST SAY WE ALL GET BACK

TO WHAT REALLY MATTERS TO

AMERICANS, WHETHER OBAMA IS A

SUNNI OR A SHIA.

BUT FOX WASN'T DONE.

>> WHEN THE LIBERALS HIDE

BEHIND COMEDY AND SAY, OH, I'M

A COMEDIAN, I CAN SAY THESE

HATEFUL AND VILE THINGS.

>> THIS IS THE HUMOR CARD THAT

THEY ALWAYS PLAY AS THEIR LAST

RESORT.

IT REALLY IS THE ULTIMATE SIGN

OF COWARDICE.

IF I SAID I'M NOT JUST A

COLUMNIST.

I'M ALSO A COMEDIAN, PUT A

CLOWN NOSE ON, CLOWN SHOES,

WOULD THAT BE OKAY?

THEY HIDE UNDER THE HELMET OF,

OH, I'M A COMEDIAN SO I CAN

GET AWAY WITH THAT.

>> Jon: OKAY.

FIRST OF ALL, COMEDIANS DON'T

WEAR HELMETS.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE

GOING TO SEE COMEDY, BUT IT IS

NOT A HELMETED ART FORM.

I THINK YOU MAY HAVE BEEN

WATCHING THE X-GAMES.

THEY WEAR HELMETS.

SECOND OF ALL, HE'S A COMEDIAN

WAS YOUR WHOLE DEFENSE ON

LIMBAUGH.

>> LIMBAUGH SAID FRIDAY HE WAS

JUST BEING PROVOCATIVE.

HIS STOCK AND TRADE.

>> IF ANYBODY DOESN'T REALIZE

THAT WE ARE ILLUSTRATING

ABSURDITY HERE BY BEING ABSURD

AND THAT THAT IS THE TRADEMARK

OF THIS PROGRAM.

>> HE'S BEING ABSURD.

AN ENTERTAINER CAN BE ABSURD.

>> Jon: I SEE YOU'RE ALLOWED

TO HIDE UNDER AN INTEN TANER'S

HELMET.

COME ON!

SEE, HERE'S THE OTHER THING

THAT I'M SICK AND TIRED OF

ABOUT THIS COMEDIAN THING.

NOBODY'S HIDING BEHIND COMEDY.

AND THERE ARE REPERCUSSIONS

FOR WHAT COMEDIANS SAY.

WHEN YOU'RE DOING IT IN A CLUB,

THERE ARE REPERCUSSIONS.

ASK MICHAEL RICHARDS.

ASK TRACY MORGAN.

IF YOU DO COMEDY ON TELEVISION,

THERE ARE REPERCUSSIONS.

ASK ME.

>> DID JON STEWART MOCK

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL

CANDIDATE HERMAN CAIN BECAUSE

HE'S A BLACK MAN?

>> Jon: YES.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHY I MOCKED

HIM.

BECAUSE HE'S A BLACK MAN.

AND IT'S NOT JUST NEWS

NETWORKS CALLING YOU RACIST.

THAT ARE THE REPERCUSSIONS

THAT COMEDIANS FACE AT TIMES.

IT'S THE LETTERS THAT THEY

GET.

MANY OF THEM HANDWRITTEN.

SOME OF THEM CONTAINING WHITE

POWDER IN THE ENVELOPE.

YOU KNOW, WHEN I GOT INTO

COMEDY, I DIDN'T THINK THE

WHITE POWDER I WOULD BE

GETTING WAS ANTHRAX.

BY THE WAY, FOR THOSE OF YOU

AT HOME, DON'T SNORT ANTHRAX.

SO YOU SEE FEEDBACK AND

REPERCUSSIONS COME IN MANY

FORMS SO DON'T PRE-PRETEND

THAT BY PEOPLE SAYING BEING

COMEDIANS THEY'RE HIDING.

THARB NOT.

THEY'RE JUST TELLING YOU THAT

THE LANGUAGE OF SATIRE IS

SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE

LANGUAGE OF NEWSCASTERS.

LANGUAGE IN GENERAL HAS

REPERCUSSIONS LIKE WHEN TED

NUGENT FACED A NATIONWIDE

BOYCOTT FOR THIS.

>> THAT WAS FRIEND AND

FREQUENT GUEST ON THE PROGRAM

TED NUGENT.

>> Jon: RIGHT.

TED NUGENT DIDN'T GET

BOYCOTTED.

THAT WAS THE DIXIE CHICKS FOR

SAYING ON STAGE THEY WERE

ASHAMED PRESIDENT BUSH WAS

FROM TEXAS BUT THAT MAKES

SENSE.

NUGENT WAS SENTENCED FOR HIS

DIE TRIBE TO HAVING TO JAM CAT

SCRATCH FEVER WITH HUCK.

I'M NOT SAYING THAT SPEECH

SHOULD BE POLICED AND CENSORED

AND BOYCOTTED OR PEOPLE DON'T

HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY CRAZY

THINGS OR TO BOYCOTT THINGS.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S TRUE.

I THINK SPEECH SHOULD BE MUCH

FREER.

BUT HERE'S ONE THING I DO

BELIEVE.

FOX, SHUT THE (BEEP) UP ABOUT

HOW VICTIMIZED YOU AND YOU

ALONE ARE.

NOBODY CARES.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
