Before we get into the important news of the day -- lefties over political -- -- headline to make it seem like you had issue with Fox News headline says quote.
Rush Limbaugh tells -- -- not to watch Fox News now I know better but can you explain to people what you think Politico is up to.

You know I I had a caller.
Who was just.
Almost just Shia -- -- he was angry spitting -- Mad.
Any kind of started telling me why he was upset they start listing names of people.
And on on a -- turned -- the Fox Business Network and much of the names I didn't know who they word that which is why I was having trouble.
And he -- it would just -- off the wall license or look just stop listening to those people stop watching those people I kept saying those people I never said.
Don't watch fox now.
I have said over the course in my career don't watch ABC don't watch NBC and has never made the -- This I never said don't watch fox but the medium it was only.
I guess they consider me and talk radio and you guys the last vestige of any opposition.

Not particularly talk.
If if if people are speaking about -- nationally and -- -- They have a a level of intelligent about it that there sufficiently informed if it's going to be like a magnet to people.
And you all seem -- like each other and even during times where there might be.
-- disagreement it if it doesn't seem.
Filled with stress.
But and it's unpredictable.
You guys might identify what you're gonna talk about the nobody knows where it's gonna go and nobody knows who's gonna say what -- A so it's it's it's something you can't predict if it's Ivan it's got all -- only elements but you guys make the show because it's.
Personality driven and it's just real it just happens and it's it's relevant it's topical and all your are are are relatively intelligent.
