Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh ridiculed the media’s “absurd” coverage of missing Malaysian Air Flight 370, venting his frustration over “ten days of nameless, faceless experts all over any network — none of whom know ANYTHING — all advancing theories.”
Limbaugh opened his program Monday afternoon mocking “the supernatural impact on the missing Malaysian airline flight” — referencing theories pushed on at least one major network of a ghostly dimension to the aircraft’s inexplicable disappearance.
“It’s getting absurd now,” the radio star said. “All the conspiracy — ‘you know, that thing has been hijacked! You take the seats out of that thing, you can turn it into a giant nuclear BOMB! I guess . . . ”
Seeking perspective on the mystery, Limbaugh channeled Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s character Sherlock Holmes. “[He] said something like, ‘Once you have ruled out everything and the most improbable, the simplest explanation for any mystery is probably the case,’” he quoted.
“The problem with trying to figure out what happened with this airliner is it’s impossible to conceive of the simplest explanation,” Limbaugh continued. “Because now we’re into ten days, ten days that people have been watching television. Ten days of nameless, faceless experts all over any network — none of whom know ANYTHING — all advancing theories.”
“I haven’t even been watching,” he later added. “And it’s not that I’m not interested in it. Folks, I can’t handle the media on this. I literally cannot. I can’t handle — we’ve got anchors and anchor-ettes that don’t know beans about even how an airplane flies.”
The radio host compared the media’s obsession with the missing flight to their incessant coverage of Obama’s “plunging approval rate.”
“Yep, I know it,” he cracked. “When it hits 35 [percent], call me. Other than that, I don’t care. I know which way it’s going, and I’m stupefied that it’s as high as it is.”
