MSNBC's Al Sharpton Mocks Rush Limbaugh for Children's Book Award


<p><em>[More in the cross-post on the MRC's <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.]</em></p><p>The folks at <em>PoliticsNation</em> on 15 May 2014 were stunned to learn that Rush
Limbaugh is now an award-winning author. Limbaugh received the
Children’s Choice Award for Author of the Year <span class="aBn"><span class="aQJ">on Wednesday</span></span>
for “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.” Sharpton jokingly asked his
guests Zerlina Maxwell and Abby Huntsman if this could possibly “be
voter fraud from some kids on the right.”<br />
<br />Although it’s unlikely Maxwell even read Limbaugh’s book, she was
quick to declare,&nbsp; “Absolutely, 100 percent, the kids did not vote for
Rush Limbaugh.” Huntsman, a supposedly right-of-center voice on MSNBC,
suggested that Rush may have “bought half the books himself.”</p>
