Right-wing moderator Limbaugh dead

His following was large – so was his influence:  The  US radio host Limbaugh was considered a conspiracy theorist and supporter of ex-President Trump. He returned the favor with the highest award in the country. Now the 70-year-old has died.

 The  conspiracy theorist and great supporter of ex-President Donald Trump announced last year that he had lung cancer.

He was considered the most influential presenter among conservative to right-wing radio makers in the USA and had a large right-wing following. Limbaugh, who was also known for expressions of racist and conspiracy theory, had received the Medal of Freedom from Trump about a year ago, the highest honor for US citizens.

In the past few decades, Limbaugh’s influence was so strong that Democrats sarcastically dubbed him “the leader of the Republican Party.” He was regularly accused of spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories.

Among other things, Limbaugh alleged untruthfully that the former US President Barack Obama was not born in the USA, that the “Black Lives Matter” movement against racism was developing into a “terrorist group” and that the attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand in March 2019 were a secret conspiracy by left-wing politicians against Trump.
