NBC News published an article reporting Limbaugh’s death and adding this description to the headline of the radio legend, “The Presidential Medal of Freedom honoree outraged critics with his long history of sexist, homophobic and racist remarks.”

Reporters from major news sources also posted their celebrations at the conservative icons passing.

Buzzfeed’s Senior Investigative reporter Jason Leopold posted this on Twitter, "Who else just filed a #FOIA request with FBI for Rush Limbaugh's FBI file?"

The Huffington Post’s senior reporter, Luke O’Brien, had this to say about Limbaugh,

CNN pundit Sophia A. Nelson criticized the moment Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Chicago Tribune humor columnist Rex Huppke tweeted, “Rush Limbaugh provided his listeners with a world that, year after year, never got better, a world always under attack by ‘others.’ Nothing ever changed. It was a world of anger and white grievance grounded in zilch. A world of cowardice and selfishness. A world of lives wasted.”

Other blue checkmarks on Twitter expressed negative thoughts about Limbaugh soon after his passing.

Left-wing radical Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, tweeted, “The idea that you say artifically nice things about people after they die is weird. I've never understood the logic of it. Rush Limbaugh was a terrible person while he was alive. He made a living by attacking the powerless. His death does not in any way change or redeem that.”

Commenting on Limbaugh’s death, actor and leftist John Cusack tweeted, “Never speak ill of the dead - the poet tell us - but the truth demands the recognition of some facts - besides Murdock - there has been no more destructive a practitioner of the big lie for profit in US history.”

TV writer Mike Drucker tweeted, "It's easy to make fun of Rush Limbaugh right now, but it's important to remember that he also brought a lot of people a lot of joy by dying.”

Former presidential candidate Mary Williamson commented on what she believes God is telling Limbaugh at this moment:

 

North Carolinia “pastor,” Reverend Rob Lee, echoed those sentiments and calling God “herself.”
