As part of his campaign to astroturf the appearance of broad support, Rush Limbaugh has been purchasing batch “likes” from India for his “Rush Babes” Facebook page. I generally find Cenk Uygur unwatchable, but so far his show is the only media outlet to report this story. Watch:
This is the second time that #stoprush has caught the Great Bloviator trying to fight their social media-driven, free speech campaign with transparent fakery. Fitting the pattern, a right wing hoaxer recently tried to infiltrate #stoprush only to be exposed as an astroturfing hack. Our success has inspired desperation on the right: we are effective, and the gods of hate radio are scared.
