RUSH: Cookie said, ‘Are you doing a speech Sunday in Washington?’ and I said, ‘No. I’m going to Washington, but I’m not doing a speech.’ She said, ‘Well, TV stations are reporting all over the country you’re doing a speech in Washington Sunday.’ I said, ‘I don’t believe that.

We need professionals. We need professional journalists out there to make sure that we don’t get wrong stuff reported, that we don’t get the facts wrong, that we don’t have misinformation out there. And so I want to know who’s filtering NBC. Listen to this montage.
