QAnon supporters have been enthralled by the narrative, and they’ve also been eager to find validation for it in their favorite right-wing media.
Talk radio shows, which rely on calls from listeners, are especially vulnerable to rogue mentions of QAnon. In February, for example, a Rush Limbaugh caller asked Limbaugh if he had heard of QAnon.
“Do a Google search on QAnon, it’s amazing, Rush, what’s going on in the dark web,” the caller said. “Military intelligence is coming out. QAnon is all…”
Before he could finish, though, Limbaugh quickly cut him off and ended the call, warning: “You’ve gotta be careful of this stuff.”
