Rush Limbaugh Stands Behind fake Obama Quote

In another blow to journalism (and a well informed public's ability to make informed decisions) Rush Limbaugh ran with a hoax story that Obama's college thesis called for redistribution of America's wealth. Limbaugh cited an excerpt from the fake Obama thesis that stated,

"The Constitution allows for many things, but what it does not allow is the most revealing. The so-called Founders did not allow for economic freedom. While political freedom is supposedly a cornerstone of the document, the distribution of wealth is not even mentioned."


But even worse than being stupid enough to run a fake story as truth, Limbaugh was informed by his producer that the story was a spoof.

Did Limbaugh Man-Up and say OOOPS, that was a fake story? No Limbaugh KEPT on going with the story and said,

It may have been fake but we know he thinks it. Good comedy, if it's comedy, must contain an element of truth. ... So we stand by the fabricated quote, because we know Obama thinks it anyway."

OK people, get out your thinking hats and start slandering Limbaugh with impunity because the bar is now set at So we stand by the fabricated quote, because we know Limbaugh thinks it anyway.

So Rusky does not fact check? Wow, what a surprised.

Oh, and when contronted that he was punked, he defended himself by saying "we stand by the fabricated quote because we know Obama thinks it anyway"

After so many years of mis-labeling and mis-characterizing others he gets smacked down by the NFL "Not For Limbaugh". Great job NFL.
