Best-selling novelist Stephen King slammed Glenn Beck as a "crazy" "nutcase" and Rush Limbaugh as a cynical huckster in his August 6, 2010 Entertainment Weekly column. The horror author derided Limbaugh as having "no conviction in that sonorous, slightly flabby voice."
King attacked the radio star for supposedly not being sympathetic enough to the plight of Lindsay Lohan's drug problem. Yet, he provided no quotes or real examples, just a vague summary. The liberal writer complained of Limbaugh, "There's a hollowness there, and a patronizing undertone when he interacts with callers (who are called Dittoheads for a reason)."
