Rush Limbaugh suggested that Hurricane Irma was fake news, that it was blown out of proportion, that news reporting on Irma was part of a great conspiracy to allow retailers to sell more products by convincing people to rush out and buy in anticipation of the seriously bad storm. Well, so much for Rush Limbaugh's “fake news spin,” Irma has at least killed 9 people.
Rush Limbaugh is a careless commentator, his comments on Irma are reckless and dangerous. Maybe it's time to silence Mr. Limbaugh, because he speaks in fiction not truth.
