This is what I know about Rush.
Years ago, I think it was the late 80's I was flipping through the dial of my radio and happened to come across this brash talking man, Rush Limbaugh, who seemed to be making a lot of sense. I tuned in for a few months, but something didn't seem quite right, I couldn't quite put my finger on it till one day he said, "man has never cause any extinction of any animal, FACT!" All I could think of was Dodo Bird.
That is when I tuned him out and I have found these talking heads, regardless of how much they fit my ideology come up with so called facts that are taking out of their ass.
Like Ray Talifaro of KGO in San Francisco, spewed some stuff about Bush that he claimed was all over the internet and swore up and down it was true. So I did my own fact checking and couldn't find hide or hair of that so called fact.
My question then becomes, since they lied and mislead about that, then what percentage are they lying about? 1%, 5%, 10%, 50% or what? And of that, how are we to know what is fact or BS?
That is why I don't listen to talking heads anymore, regardless of how much I agree with them because they have a history of taking things out of context, missquoting, believing a so called fact is a true because it fits their agenda, or just plain lying.
Just like Rush.
