Wednesday, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh hit back at Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) for his call for increased censorship of Breitbart News during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing a day early with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
Limbaugh speculated Blumenthal and his allies that support such a call were not pleased with the “very elite world” of journalism opened by different types of media, including his radio show, the Drudge Report and the work of the late Andrew Breitbart.
