Media malpractice

More malpractice from the media:  Attacks on Rush Limbaugh, who is part of a group that wants to purchase the St. Louis Rams have been a regular item on MSNBC, but since they have about 10 viewers world-wide, it's not really an issue that they use outright falsehoods upon which to base their attacks.  However, other media outlets are now picking them up which are based upon quotes attributed to him, which have long since been debunked as 100% false.  Of course, Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton, who are pure race-baiting charlatans, making their millions (yes, millions) on the blackmail of American companies, threatening to strike or boycott or hold a press conference in front of their headquarters, have picked these attacks up and added to them.

Good to know that the media is as incompetent and lazy as the Dimwitocrats that they support.

Just to set the record straight, the racist quotes that I'll not repeat here because they don't need to be repeated, have NOT been quotes from Rush Limbaugh, but rather they were made up by some idiot who wrote a book that probably sold about 100 copies or so, and probably all in Berkeley CA.  They've long since been de-bunked and no one has EVER been able to come up with any quotes, sound-bites, or actual REAL evidence of Rush making racist statements.  Pretty difficult to do, since the guy broadcasts a 3 hour radio show 5 days a week and has for going on about 22 years now.  Plus speeches, public appearances and a short running TV show, and you can't find ANYTHING to bust him on?  You have to make stuff up?

Thanks to Erick at, here's some actual, attributed, well-sourced quotes from folks who are actually racists:

10. Democrat Fritz Hollings of South Carolina thinks being from Africa makes you a cannibal: "You'd find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they'd just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva."
9. Howard Dean reaches out: "I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks."
8. California Democrat Diane Watson thinks interracial marriage is icky: "He's married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn't want to be black."
7. Howard Dean thinks service positions are for minorities, not big fancy white people: "You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? ... Only if they had the hotel staff in here."
6. Joe Biden explains why southern Democrats should vote for him: "My state was a slave state."
5. "Conscience of the Senate" and former Klansman Robert Byrd on equal opportunity: "I've seen a lot of white n*ggers in my time.
4. Hillary Clinton does an impression (complete with accent) of an African-American man who didn't know what Emily's List was: "She's supportin' all these people. She's supportin' Sen. Dianne Feinstein . She's supported Sen. Barbara Boxer . . . She supported everybody. Why won't she support me?"
3. Democratic Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin denies that white people might live in New Orleans: "I don't care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day.""
2. Democrat Steny Hoyer reviews Michael Steele's career: "[He has] a career of slavishly supporting the Republican Party."
1. Then Senator Joe Biden fills us in on who works at convenience stores: "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent ... I'm not joking."
