Anderson Cooper Fires Back at Rush Limbaugh: ‘You Might Try the Gym from Time to Time’

The other day on his radio show Rush Limbaugh was pointing out CNN’s ratings woes, and singled out Anderson Cooper calling him “the silver fox.”

“I swear, that guy is reported more in gossip columns to be at the gym or that bar or a restaurant than he is in the studio,” said Limbaugh. “I hear more stuff about Anderson Cooper at a bar or at a gym or at a health club than I do about what he’s doing in the studio.”

Last night, Cooper fired back, putting Limbaugh in his RidicuList. “I’ve never tried to pick a fight with this guy, I really have no interest in doing that now. But because I’m sure that Mr. Limbaugh cares about accuracy, I just want to point out to him: I have three jobs …. The idea that I’m hanging out in bars and health clubs is sadly not true.”
