Rush Limbaugh's term for the sensational, scandal-seeking, and agenda-driven coverage that is typical of the national press corps in America. Limbaugh draws an analogy between the media who cover a story with a barrage of unfair cheap shots before moving on to the next flavor of the month and an inner city gang that drives by and sprays a target with gunfire and then moves on to their next target.
Rush Limbaugh predicted that the response to the alleged murders at Haditha from Democrats, the left, and the media would be a "gang rape ... to finally take us out in the war against Iraq." Limbaugh stated: "This Haditha story ... this is it, folks. This is the final big push on behalf of the Democratic Party, the American left, and the drive-by media to destroy our effort to win the war in Iraq." Limbaugh added: "L
et me just put it in graphic terms. It is going to be a gang rape. There is going to be a gang rape by the Democratic Party, the American left, and the drive-by media to finally take us out in the war against Iraq. Make no bones about it."
Media which consistantly reports news that is not accurate or is intentionally distorted.
1.I have "independent" and "private" sources that have told me directly that they had personally seen George W. Bush deliver dynamite to the Levees and blow them up during hurricane Katrina,to kill all the africans in New Orleans. This is Honky Whiteman reporting live for Drive By Media News.
The American media that distorts the news into propaganda, in order to get high ratings. The drive-by media has told us: blacks were denied the right to vote in Florida during the 2000 election, that New Orleans floods after/during hurricane Katrina resulted from white people blowing up levees to destroy black neighborhoods, that 9-1-1 was a government conspiracy and an “inside “job”, that Bush “lied” about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction just so he could invade Iraq and make amends for his father’s war, that global warming is going to exterminate human beings from the earth, that the war in Iraq is only for oil, and that bigger government is the answer to improving your life. Basically, the drive-by media specializes in brainwashing and charcater assassination.
The drive by media specializes in distortions of the facts in the name of "ratings." The funny thing is that many people are nieve and believe what they are told.
1) One of many meaningless, substance-free terms created by Rush Limbaugh
and parroted by his ditto heads
meant to deride the press and scapegoat mistakes by conservatives
While Rushbo himself never actually defines it (nor can any of his cult
devotees), it is implied to describe shallow, sensationalist, sound-byte-heavy news coverage á la Fox News
2) Scandalous, short attention-span, and often controversial "news" that mostly cover-up
, and/or spin
for political purposes.
3 ) The Rush Limbaugh
Ironically, while constantly blaming the U.S.'s short-comings on the "drive-by media," Rush Limbaugh is in fact the figurehead of that type of news coverage.
