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.
