EXCLUSIVE: Oops! Wikipedia Pronounced Rush Limbaugh Dead
RadarOnline ^ | 12.31.09

Posted on 12/31/2009 7:36:02 AM PST by libh8er

Looks like the folks at Wikipedia were prepared for the worst when it came to Rush Limbaugh. Actually they were a little too well prepared.

Shortly after the news broke that the conservative political radio talk show host was hospitalized, Wikipedia updated his page – and pronounced him dead.

Folks (like us) who happened to take a look at Limbaugh’s biography, saw this:

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (pronounced /ˈlɪmbɔː/;born January 12, 1951, died December 30, 2009) is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States. It airs throughout the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks.

That was posted shortly after midnight, EST.

Rush, of course, was very much alive and about 15 minutes later Wikipedia pronounced him so, altering their bio by removing the information that he had died.

Limbaugh remains hospitalized Thurday.

Looking forward to his first 2010 broadcast. How much of the “stack of stuff” will deal with stories on his hospitalization?

It doesn't say anything about him being dead.

Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (pronounced /ˈlɪmbɔː/;born January 12, 1951, died December 30, 2009) is an American radio host and conservative political commentator. He is the host of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the highest-rated talk-radio program in the United States. It airs throughout the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks.

Where is any reference to his being dead?

I really think Rush should take a test and make sure he was not poisened..The Bildiberg organization tried to kill him so he would stay off the democrats backs..

See I can make up a story too..I would say more but afraid I would get in trouble..

Maybe Axelrod put the call-in, did our beloved MSM do the same?

Kidding. Though they spout, i’m sure they’re praying fervently to Obama not to take their major talking point default away.

Then again, Obama could raise him up as a gesture of bi-partisanship.

Lord, forgive me.

Now that could be a story to follow..Both Pelosi and BO are out to get Rush..I think they did use the thugs that work for the Bilidberg group no one could find out since that group rules most of the world..

The only way to do that is convert them to your side. Surely you aren't in favor of denying them freedom of speech, no matter how despicable it may be?

Yes I believe you are right.

Obama is in Hawaii not on vacation but to make darn sure no one leaks the fact he was not born in Hawaii..We are getting to close so he decide to take our company plane on another free ride to Hawaii to intimidate the locals into keeping their mouth shut..

Also Pelosi and BO decided to get rid of Rush..

People forget that Samuel Clemens, aka. Mark Twain had plenty of enemies in his lifetime.

Rush kind of reminds me of him in some ways.

when someone tries to foment treason and evil, hell YEAH I am against their speech!

I did NOT serve in the Marine Corps to defend someone’s right to call for the assasination of Bush, Call for bombings of military installations, call for supporting enemy Jihadists in war against Americans!

NONE of that is FREE SPEECH, it is sedition and treason!

and it is NOT protected speech...unless of course, you are a democrat!

When an ambulance was called to the Obama compound, also in Hawaii, was he declared dead on Wiki? Why not:

1. 'We' don't do that.

2. Obama isn't as big a celebrity as Rush.

How is it people still don’t understand how Wikipedia works?

There are no “folks at Wikipedia” who update “their” page. Some random user made the bogus edit saying Rush had died, and some other random user came along and edited it out.

Calm down bro. My response didn't deal with any of the common sense things you mentioned. To call for the assassination of Bush is not the same thing as saying you hope Rush dies. One is a threat, the other is not.
Should "evil" speech be allowed? Hell yes. How do you define when speech is evil? Maybe the day comes when your own speech is deemed evil (as it already is in lib circles) and therefore outlawed. We're already seeing this happen with "hate speech". You should be free to hate anything or anyone you want and say so with freedom no matter who it offends. Do you disagree with that or not?
Thanks for your service as a Marine.

Neither Hitler NOR Mengele were ever in Argentina. Most war criminals preferred Brazil and Paraguay. Eichman was a dumb low level operative who was stupid enough to settle in Buenos Aires.
