Limbaugh on MH17: Media Found Its ‘Opportunity’ to Abandon Obama Border News

It did not take long for Rush Limbaugh to connect the Malaysia Airlines passenger jet that was shot down over Eastern Ukraine to President Barack Obama. Shortly after relaying the news to his radio audience Thursday, the host said, “talk about an opportunity to abandon the bad Obama news at the border.”


Limbaugh said he had been avoiding CNN all morning, but asked, “What do you bet they have broomed everything and are covering wall-to-wall the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down by a missile?”

“I don’t want appear to be callous here, folks, but you talk about an opportunity to abandon the Obama news at the border?” he continued. In an effort to ward off accusation of conspiratorial thinking, he added, “And, no, I’m not suggesting anything other than how the media operates.”

In Limbaugh’s assessment that whole thing was “really eerie.” And the fact that it was shot down by missile over Ukraine led him to believe that it was “not an accident.”
