Media Matters keeps an eye on Rush Limbaugh

Anyone who follows politics would know that Rush Limbaugh has a commanding conservative audience for his radio show. Since the inauguration of President Obama and the recent sea change in power, Rush Limbaugh has risen to greater prominence as a result of the power vacuum in the Republican party. According to some, he's a savior and is speaking the gospel of conservatism. According to others, he's simply insane, and consistently engages in lies and deception.

Media Matters, an example of what Perlmutter would call a "reviser and extender of the media," has launched a watchdog section within their website to monitor Rush Limbaugh -- designed largely to to fact-check Rush and to monitor his whereabouts in the political landscape.
