Limbaugh insisted he was expressing a serious concern that the media’s "irresponsible" coverage would lead to copycat suicides. Yesterday, Limbaugh had said that liberals are "never happy" and Williams’ tragic death "fits a certain picture… that the left has" about success in the United States.
He said he was actually criticizing the media's coverage of Williams' death. "I don't presume to know why Robin Williams committed suicide," he said. "I didn't know yesterday, and I don't know today."
"They are the ones trying to tell us why," he continued, criticizing the liberal media. "They are the ones trying to explain it. They are the ones justifying it. They are the ones glorifying it."
