Conservative political commentator?[edit]

In the introductory sentence, why is he a "conservative political commentator"? Why not just a "political commentator"? It seems quite biased that right leaning public figures are called "conservative political commentators" but left leaning public figures are just "political commentators," and not "liberal political commentators."

Net Worth[edit]

The net worth figure is inaccurate - the citation is Forbes Rush Limbaugh Profile, which clearly states that $79 million is his earnings in 2015, not net worth. He signed an eight year contract in 2008 worth approximately $400m, and previously had a $285m eight year contract (source:

Semi-protected edit request on 3 August 2016[edit]

Obvious error in net worth (listed as $79 million, reported in the linked citation as Limbaugh's salary for the year, not his net worth). Actual net worth estimated at $350 million (source -

New contract[edit]

In the lede, the article says "His most recent contract, signed on July 31, 2016" but lower down it says "On August 2, 2016, Limbaugh signed a four-year extension of the 2008 contract." Which is it? (talk) 03:05, 8 September 2016 (UTC)

Grammar in the first paragraph[edit]

'its 32nd year', not 'it's'. Somebody correct this — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:57, 5 October 2016 (UTC)

Chelsea incident as described didnt happen[edit]

According to the article: "During the Clinton administration, while filming his television program, Limbaugh referred to media coverage of Socks, the Clintons' cat. He then stated, "But did you know there is also a White House dog?" and a picture of Chelsea Clinton was shown. When questioned about it, Limbaugh claimed that it was an accident and that without his permission some technician had put up the picture of Chelsea"

Most of this is false. The incident in question occured not during the clinton administration, but in the last months of the Bush administration.
