They Have Found a Witch

The Rush Limbaugh media lynch mob

The irony is, of course, that the people reporting this as fact are the same types who are always denouncing bloggers and the internet as forces of evil intent on destroying proper journalism – proper journalism being the kind that involves checking facts. In the case of Rush Limbaugh, however, it seems to be enough that the intention (i.e. to show the talk radio host is a racist) is considered pure.

Even those who have been primary movers in spreading these malicious falsehoods – which would lead to payouts of hundreds of thousands in British libel courts if lawsuits were ever filed there – are brazenly unapologetic.

Oct 15: Rush gives some details.

He was part of an investment group trying to purchase the Rams. The partner with the largest investment would have had a 30% stake. The rest of the partners - including Rush - would have had less. So all this fuss, these lies, have been over a minority partner with no say in the direction of the team.

This was a witch hunt and the hunters acted exactly as those in the Monty Python clip above.
