    Conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh absolutely trashed Wolf Blitzer Tuesday for ignoring Barack Obama's declining poll numbers.

    As he opened the program, Limbaugh informed listeners about new data showing the President's approval rating at the lowest point since he moved into the White House.

    "He's down to 44% in a couple of polls, 46% in another, and where is the State-Controlled Media reporting this?"

    To drive home the point, Limbaugh shared a montage of how Blitzer one day in March 2006 reported George W. Bush's sagging poll numbers almost every hour on the hour (video embedded below the fold with transcript, h/t Right Scoop):

    . . . .


    According to LexisNexis, Blitzer did indeed discuss Bush's sagging polls during the hours Limbaugh discussed.

    Of course, as CNN used to be affiliated with the USA Today/Gallup poll, its coverage of such numbers is not necessarily surprising.

    But, in the past two weeks, as poll after poll has shown Obama's numbers similarly plummeting, Blitzer has not mentioned the President's approval rating once.

    Not once!

    By contrast, during the same period, Blitzer reported polls referring to the public's view of Sarah Palin, the Tea Party movement, gays in the military, the stimulus plan, and expectations for Obama's State of the Union address.

    I guess the formerly most trusted name in news has to have its priorities.

    Blitzer doesn't even report CNN polls because Obama is tanking in them too.
