Taken from this week’s edition of PJM Political, Ed Driscoll interviews New York Times journalist Zev Chafets about his new book, Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One.

What makes a former disk jockey who single-handedly invented talk radio, and arguably (as El Rushbo believes) the Fox News channel tick? Who were some of his influences? What led to his period of prescription-drug dependency? Will the 2010 election be a referendum on Rush’s worldview? Driscoll and Chafets discuss these and many more topics in a 19-minute long interview.
