Another one bites the dust?? Republican shock jock Rush Limbaugh has been using America’s public radio to spew caustic and dangerous propaganda to millions of people five days a week, three hours a day, for 25 years. He represents so much of what’s wrong with this country — and with this world. The good news is Limbaugh’s eight-year $400 million dollar contract with iHeart Media (formerly Clear Channel) is up in December. Let’s hope he put some of that money away for rainy days, because there’s a virtual monsoon on its way.
Most believe the beginning of Limbaugh’s end came in 2012 when he maliciously attacked a college student who was advocating for birth control insurance coverage at a congressional hearing. Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” on air, for three days. He figured he’d get away with it — because he’d gotten away with similar bile for decades. What he didn’t seem to realize is that we now live in a time where people have a new massive platform from which to voice their objections and causes, called social media. And the attack on Sandra Fluke vent viral. Not only did Limbaugh end up eating his words, those words began to eat him and consume his unraveling career.#altwrong #rushlimbaugh #yourefired #getthefuckout #shutthefuckup #resist
