This has been covered a lot. So the facts seem well established. In addition, AP did try to contact Clear Channel and Limbaugh as the piece states. So it seems pretty balanced and fair.

A so what? article. The ditto heads to whom Rush appeals are proud to be just like him–racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic, xenophobic, hate peddler, narrow-minded, and not the tallest pine on the mountain. No doubt they considered his performance the height of jocundity. A real caution, their Rush.

This article is one sided due to the lack of response from the Limbaugh/Clear Channel camp. There isn't much that can be said, however, to defend the crude, racist mocking of China's President.

This news analysis has some journalistic merit. It describes the latest left wing censorship efforts against Rush Limbaugh. The authors quote some of the leaders in this effort and their race-based attitudes. They note a previous effort at censorship by the leader of this effort. The usual calls for "civility" are quoted without though noting that most of the hate speech is coming from the left wing to begin with.
