RUSH: The media has ceased their primary objective of destroying Republicans when it comes to Trump.  And instead they're propping him up.  And the reason they are doing it is the media landscape is changing so fast. It's becoming so compartmentalized, it's becoming so niche that attracting massive, big audiences anymore is not possible because there's just too much competition... They have found gold in Trump.  Trump attracts and holds an audience like they can't... And it's reflected in the ratings and it's reflected in advertising revenue, but -- and this is Campbell Brown's point -- more importantly, the news media themselves love it because where they work now has audience again. 

RUSH: Newspaper endorsements don't matter much, if at all, and even some political personality endorsements don't carry the weight that they used to.  But Pence could, given his reputation and his success in Indiana. On the other side you have Trump, who was endorsed by Bobby Knight.  And Bobby Knight said that he doesn't know if Trump is a Republican or Democrat and he doesn't even know what a conservative is. 

RUSH: If you know one thing, know this:  The Republican Party in Washington, establishment, whatever you want to call them, they fear government shutdowns.  They fear that more than they fear anything, because of the 1995 budget deal and repeated attempts to shut down the government.  They are scared of the media. They're scared of the Democrats. They think that's why they're losing is because they've talked about shutting down the government.  Cruz did it.  

RUSH: Trump goes out and gets Bobby Knight. Bobby Knight, one of the biggest people in Indiana. One of the most beloved, respected, and, by the way, a fighter.  If Bobby Knight didn't agree with the refs, he'd throw a chair at 'em all across the court if he had to.  So here's Bobby Knight talking about the guy that can get it done, and that's Donald Trump.  Same day that Ted Cruz announced Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick.  So you have two strategies here, and they're on display side by side. 

RUSH: If you want to know whether or not Trump's speech yesterday was a hit with the voters that he has energized, all you have to know is Trump said the following:  "We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism."  That's it.  Everything before and after is irrelevant. That line, as far as Trump supporters are concerned, was all they needed to hear.

RUSH: I got a note from Newt Gingrich today, who said, "You know what you ought to do?  You need to do daily reports on Venezuela in order to teach people about the failures of socialism." And, my first reaction: Venezuela?  If Detroit's not doing the trick, how in the world does anybody expect teaching about Venezuela's gonna do the trick? 

CALLER: I believe first off that Trump is a destiny candidate and he's the man and he's got the credibility to actually extend an olive branch to this group. And I know this for a fact because the last 30 years he's provided good paying union jobs for thousands of families in New York City, and I gotta tell you, Rush, I know, because I was one of them.
