Picking up on a blog post by a <a href="http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201111210009&quot; target="_blank">far-left group</a> devoted to silencing Rush Limbaugh, ABC’s <em>World News</em>
on Monday night dedicated an entire story to one word used by the
conservative radio host, a comment the other networks failed to find
newsworthy. “Loaded words,” fill-in anchor Georgre Stephanopoulos
ominously teased, “the First Lady booed at a NASCAR event.<strong> Now <a href="http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2011/11/21/nascar_boos_for_first_seco…; target="_blank">Rush Limbaugh weighs in</a>, hurling a racially charged word at Michelle Obama.” </strong><br />
<br />
Soon, a “word” became “words” when Stephanopoulos later plugged the upcoming hit: “Still ahead on <em>World News</em>, Michelle Obama booed at a NASCAR event and <strong>now Rush Limbaugh hurls racially-charged words at the First Lady.”&nbsp;</strong><em></em></p>

<p>
Noting how “boos and jeers were hurled at First Lady Michelle Obama and
Doctor Jill Biden at the NASCAR race on Sunday,” Jake Tapper snidely
asserted: “Don’t worry, NASCAR fans, <strong>Rush Limbaugh is here to defend your honor and make things worse....Much worse.” </strong>Viewers then heard the offending word from Limbaugh: “They understand it’s a little bit of uppity-ism.”</p>

<p>
Tapper helpfully explained: “Uppity, a word that means presumptuous,
but is loaded with racist connotations often used to describe
African-Americans who don’t know their place in the view of white
society.”<br />
<br />
Tapper found wise counsel in Clarence Thomas’s 1991 observation,
turning his chastisement of liberals against Limbaugh: “It is the
high-tech lynching for uppity blacks and it is the message that unless
you kowtow to an old order this is what will happen to you.”</p><p><a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/brent-baker/2011/11/22/abc-elevates-left-w…; target="_blank">Cross-posted</a> on the MRC's NewsBusters blog.</p>
