    A Rush story I did not know about

    This is not the first time Segal has bridged the cultural divide. Back in the 1980s, when Rush Limbaugh was attacked as an anti-Semite for referring to the “Jewish lobby” on the air, Segal acted as his advocate in the Jewish community. The campaign against Limbaugh reached a climax when he was thrown out of New York City’s Parker Meridien hotel, where he had been staying temporarily after moving to New York City. Shortly thereafter, Zev Chafets recalls in his book Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One, Segal “got Limbaugh on the phone.” He told Limbaugh, “You haven’t done anything wrong, I will protect you.” Limbaugh in January recalled on the air that Segal “saved me with the New York Jewish community, ‘cause I didn’t know what [‘Jewish lobby’] meant.”

    =========

    BTW, very low down to put Rush out of his hotel.
