Lying, Rush Limbaugh Radio Shows Its Style

Technorati Profile

Today Mark Belling , sitting in for Rush, is declaring that a family living under the flight path of SFO gave $2,500 each to Hilary Clinton, and that obviously they couldn't do this because they are "poor." A typical listing for a 1,200 sq foot "bungalo" in Daly City is around $650,000. A family of six living there could quite likely come up with a patriotic $2,500 each without too much trouble. 'The way the media puts this in context" a favorite phrase of the show is quite amusing. Daly City is below the flight path, but so is Hillsborough, like about 3,000 feet under it for both of them. The way Mark tells it, you'd think they were living in a duck blind in a mudflat. Of course, anyone not familiar with the Bay Area will take this to be the case. And then the horror, the horror, a demo fund raiser used to live in the very structure, and so he must be the true source of the money. Right !

That would be Big Source of Clinton's Cash Is an Unlikely Address, in the Wall St Journal. Sunlight Foundation's Ellen Miller writes about it - There's Gold In Those Databases; LA Times indicates the "home's previous owner" has a checkered past - Democratic fundraiser is a fugitive in plain sight.

It smells.

Just because something was on talk radio doesn't mean it's a lie. Stopped clock is right twice a day, and so on.
