    CNN’s Rick Sanchez read the slavery quote during the 3pm hour of CNN’s Newsroom on October 12 as proof of Limbaugh’s “racist diatribes.” Last night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper declared the slavery quote “false,” and “not something he [Limbaugh] ever said. Sanchez may have been planning his own retraction today, but live coverage of the runaway balloon in Colorado pre-empted his normal show.

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow cited the preposterous quote about giving King assassin James Earl Ray the Medal of Honor back in June; this week, multiple MSNBC anchors have referred to the pro-slavery quote as genuine. MSNBC Live anchor Tamron Hall, for example, on Monday afternoon asked, “Should a person who says there are merits with slavery be able to have this privilege of owning a team?” That was after Limbaugh had already said that he had never uttered such a phrase.

    At this point I’ve heard of no effort to correct the record at MSNBC.

    And some liberal idiot just told me in another thread Maddow is " fair and honest" .....:lol:

    This sort of thing basically means that it is impossible to quote anyone about anything unless you have an actual clip of the person you claim said the words.

    The more this goes on, the harder it will be for anyone to differentiate between fact and fiction. That is detrimental to honest debate and, no matter what your political leanings, we should all be able to agree that this is a really bad thing.

    Rush insults people and the holier than thou NFL suddenly has standards. Can anyone say Michael Vick? How did we get to the point that insults are more egregious than animal torture, drunk driving, and domestic violence? I cannot wrap my head around this.

    And putting it in context. All too often Rushs' comments are taken out of context.

    Didn't they take Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas as an investor? These lyrics are from their song "Where Is the Love".

    Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
    But we still got terrorists here livin'
    In the USA, the big CIA

    So it's ok to take Fergie, who calls the CIA terrorists, into the fold but not Rush, who never said what the left claims he said. Right.

    Or a least an audio version in 2000's or later part of 20th century about a public figure. Yeah, even the public figures have some rights, especially when it's about a radio performer. :rolleyes: Rush has been 'public' since the 90's, very public. Anything along those lines he said, would be available in archives or Lexis-Nexis.
