Rush Limbaugh never met a tragedy he couldn't turn into an anti-media/anti-Obama story and today's Malaysian Airlines crash fit the bill:

LIMBAUGH: It's a Malaysian Airlines jet and can you -- I've got the British Open on the top menu, monitor, I haven't had CNN on all day, what do you bet they have broomed everything and are covering wall-to-wall the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down by a missile? This is, I mean, you talk about -- I don't want to appear to be callous here, folks, but you talk about an opportunity to abandon the bad Obama news at the border, and no, I'm not suggesting anything other than how the media operates.

Sure, he's not suggesting anything bad at all. He's just saying. It's kinda like when Fox News uses the "some people are saying" routine to interject a twisted conspiracy theory into a narrative.

It's all a big plot masterminded by the liberal media elite to shield President Obama from protecting those grubby little disease ridden immigrant children pouring in over our border.

How soon before some right wing talker links Obama to the separatists who quite possibly downed the jet?

Can you help us out?
