A review of the social media reaction to Limbaugh’s announcement on his show Monday suggested that by and large most of those who chose to comment online were there to express their condolences. But the ugliness of some left-wing comments stood out in the sea of support.

Conservative host Carmine Sabia repudiated the hateful venom, while pointing out that both sides were guilty of it.

The same was true of former Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., whose unexpected passing late last year amid the start of impeachment proceedings drew a respectfully subdued reaction from his conservative critics.

Even Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who played the foil to Cummings as ranking minority member on the House Oversight Committee, expressed deep regret.

But, in a perverse way, the vitriol that his announcement inspired was a fitting tribute to the legacy of the right-wing media pioneer who coined the term “drive by media” among many others.
