Morning Awful: Rush Buys Astroturf From India

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.
