Rush Limbaugh Accuses Huffington Post Of Ignoring Iranian Protests

Posted: Updated:

Oh, snap! Rush Limbaugh says that we here at the Huffington Post are history's greatest monsters because while "people are being gunned down in Iran" we dared to run a post by Ann Wright entitled "Israeli Police and Military Brutalize Peaceful Protesters at Netanyahu's Speech," which Limbaugh apparently didn't care for. And that's what Limbaugh says we are "concerned with."

[LISTEN]

And really, Rush has a point! If you ignore all the other news articles on Iran that have been posted on the HuffPo, all the other blog posts about Iran that we have run, our liveblog which has been running all weekend and which reported the shootings in Iran as news about them broke, the images of those shootings that we included in that liveblog, the videos of the protests that we've included in that liveblog, and the ENTIRE FRONT PAGE OF THE SITE WHICH HAS AT THIS MOMENT, THIS IMAGE...

...then YES, absolutely, we here at the Huffington Post should be horsewhipped in the town square for ignoring the Iranian protests. But somehow I think all of the above content is going to count in our favor.

Editor-In-Chief Arianna Huffington was not reached for comment, because I don't go around bothering her every time some idiot scrapes something off the stable floor to put on his old-timey radio show.
