Limbaugh: Pioneer Press, U Journalism 'Screwl' sucking on gov teat

Thanks to a link from MinnPost's David Brauer, we got to listen to the insightful Rush Limbaugh rant about the recent Minnesota grant to help newspapers get up to speed on this new Internet thing everyone's been talking about.

Limbaugh didn't have many kind words to say about a $238,000 grant to retrain the "drive-by" staff at the Pioneer Press and Duluth News Tribune. He also didn't hesitate to mock the University of Minnesota School of Journalism and Mass Communication, calling it a "Journalism Screwl".

Limbaugh's conclusion: They are all suckling up to the government teat and more newspapers are likely to latch on if the idea gets around.
