Philadelphia — 314 Action is launching a new national radio ad campaign on the Rush Limbaugh Show in local markets across the country to hold Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and other Trump allies accountable as they continue to risk American lives by downplaying the threat of the coronavirus and ignoring the truth from scientists.
Limbaugh has dismissed the coronavirus as “the common cold,” continually downplayed and misled about the threat, and is now attacking scientists and doctors who are trying to save American lives.
“While the death tolls continue to rise from the pandemic and Americans are being told to brace themselves for a ‘Pearl Harbor’ type week, Rush Limbaugh and other Trump apologists continue to peddle misinformation and downplay the severity, which will imperil the lives of their own listeners,” said Shaughnessy Naughton, President of 314 Action. “It’s time we listen to science.”
The 60 second spot will run on conservative talk radio stations during Limbaugh’s broadcasts this week in the following states: Arizona, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, DC and Wisconsin.
