Good story from 1997.
"The cover of Time magazine for January 23, 1995, was graced, if that's the word for it, with a photo of Rush Limbaugh, combat-readiness etched in his features, a plume of cigar smoke wafting upward from his most valuable asset: his mouth. The cover line -- IS RUSH LIMBAUGH GOOD FOR AMERICA? -- was answered by the subhead inside: "The explosion of radio call-in shows has created a new form of electronic populism and demagoguery."
Talk radio was triumphant. The freshmen House Republicans made Limbaugh an honorary member of Congress. Talk-radio targets such as Joycelyn Elders, Tom Foley, and Dan Rostenkowski were gone. And the media and political establishments were reeling, with Bill Clinton complaining about the medium's "personal, demeaning attacks," and the Washington Post weighing in with a page-one piece headlined THE POLITICS OF HATE the morning before the 1994 election."
