Rush and I clowning around on the New York City set of Rush Limbaugh, The Television Show in the early 1990s. I was in costume wearing a fedora and trenchcoat as “Our Man In Washington” for the program. I served as Rush’s DC reporter during the programs 1992-1996 nationally syndicated run.

Rush Limbaugh tribute at CPAC & Fox News (Morano’s question to Bill Clinton in 1992 is at 3:45 min into video & Morano interviewed Rush in tux at DC hotel in 1993 when he is saying he is an expert at 4:10 min into video below.)

Excerpt from Morano’s book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change:

But then, in 1992, I experienced an epiphany. My first doubts on the deforestation issue were raised by physicist Dixy Lee Ray, who attended the Rio Earth Summit and filed reports on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show debunking the claims that the Amazonian rainforest was about to disappear. I started investigating and was very surprised to find out that the green movement was in many cases wildly exaggerating deforestation claims. My investigation of the issue eventually culminated in the production of my own documentary on the Amazon, released in 2000 and titled Amazon Rainforest: Clear-Cutting the Myths. … 

Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh has praised Climate Depot. “It’s a great place to keep up on the global warming debate,” Limbaugh said on air in 2009.30 “Morano’s probably single-handedly, in a civilian sense, the guy (other than me, of course) doing a better job of ringing the bells alarming people of what’s going on here,” Limbaugh explained. I worked for Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated Rush Limbaugh television show during its four-year run from 1992 to 1996. I served as his onscreen television reporter and producer, and Limbaugh referred to me as “Our Man in Washington.” I had the dubious distinction of being the first journalist in history to have his television camera seized at the Clinton White House in 1993 while on assignment with the Limbaugh TV show.”

Rush Limbaugh Praises Climate Depot: ‘You remember ‘Our Man in Washington, Marc Morano. He’s now a global warming watchdog, and he’s got a website called Climate Depot’ – Limbaugh: ‘Morano just sent me an e-mail: ‘Greens give Gore two thumbs down’…what Morano is doing is good because the rest of the Drive-Bys are not covering it…Now, Marc Morano, by the way, got the e-mail of the Nobel Prize guy quitting the global warming movement. That was his scoop’

Rush Limbaugh – March of 1993: “‘Our Man In Washington’ — an ever more and more popular part of this program.” – March 2003.

2000: Limbaugh’s comments on my Amazone Documentary and on  “Our Man in Washington” for his 90’s TV Show

Limbaugh radio transcript from June 21, 2000:

Marc Morano, you know who he is?  Does the name ring a bell?  “Our man in Washington.”  When we had our TV show, Marc Morano was “Our man in Washington.”  He was always down there with his camera, infiltrating liberal havens.

Oh, he found McCurry.  Well, I wouldn’t — look, McCurry had consumed, say, a bit=2 0more of that beverage than he should have, but that’s as far as I will go.  But “Our man in Washington,” Marc Morano, is preparing a report on this rainforest business, based on what these two scientists said.  And this is bad news for the environmentalist whackos.  They’re just a little ticked off at Marc Morano and his report, which is entitled “Amazon Rainforest: Clear-cutting the Myths.”  The Rainforest Foundation, populated by some big-name entertainers, is especially flustered.

The wife of rock singer Sting, Trudie Sting — actually, her name is Trudie Styler, but we’ll call her Trudie Sting — was reportedly outraged to learn that the rainforest is more than 90 percent intact.  She went on to say that she and her husband would continue to honor their commitment to the indigenous peoples of the rainforest.

Marc Morano confronted many celebrities, just as he used to do as “Our man in Washington” — that’s what he did — he went and confronted these

liberals.  He came away with the impression that most of them didn’t want to know that they’re participating in what he terms the biggest environmental

con of the past two decades.  Their knowledge base is very low on all these issues. Well, of course it is.  Their knowledge base is irrelevant.
