Rush Limbaugh already has a conspiracy theory about Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, which crashed earlier today near the border of Ukraine and Russia. He believes that this tragedy, which reportedly killed 295 people, is a great way for the media to stop focusing on the crisis at the border.

He spouted this nonsense during his radio show today. From the show's transcript:

Really, you're posting Salon bullshit?

Why not?

What's wrong with knowing what the other side is saying?

  • Words full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
LOL, Salon really fell for Rush's media tweak once again. He even called it when he said it, predicting exactly how the media would spin this. They completely missed the point that he was ripping on them, not a conspiracy about the airliner.
I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

How to get paid for being an MSM "journalist":

1. Write 100 words criticizing Rush Limbaugh for saying this or that
2. Copy and paste 1900 words from the transcript of Rush's show
3. Cash check
4. Go to medical marijuana parlor and get high with windfall
5. Rinse and repeat

I love when he does this!   :smokin:
