Limbaugh: good riddance

Hardcore race baiter and alleged pill popper Rush Limbaugh was kicked out by his own potential ownership group's bid to purchase the St. Louis Rams proving there is a (football) God.

Limbaugh was drop kicked by the head of the group, the respected Dave Checketts.

Rush has been Rushed.

This is a great day for those of us who see sports as a unifying force and not a dividing one.

Oh, go ahead, Limbaugh lickers, post your comments about how people have made up quotes or taken them out of context or call everyone a racist. Fire away, you brave anonymous message board flamers. That's what you do.

(This is said without malice and is my opinion: I believe almost any quote attributed to Limbaugh when it comes to race because he's said any number of ugly and hateful things. Just my opinion and belief.)

Limbaugh represents everything that's wrong with how people relate to one another today.

Now Limbaugh will manipulate the situation -- and manipulate his followers -- into believing that his lack of acceptance by the NFL is a conspiracy by the liberal media, feminists, blacks, ACORN, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, global warming believers, Oprah and Mexicans against him.

It's not about Limbaugh's politics, it's about Limbaugh himself. He's a bad person. That's it. End of story.

There are (and have been) current NFL owners who are horrible people but that doesn't mean the league has to let more in, especially more like Limbaugh.

Limbaugh's also a coward who sends his robotic fans to various media and message boards to do his dirty work for him.

You can't have it both ways, Rush-bo. You can't say numerous hateful things then try to back away from them or claim one or two things attributed to you aren't accurate. You don't get the benefit of the doubt on race.

So good riddance.

Hopefully the sports world will never hear from you again.

Limbaugh: good riddance

Let's take a look at  the score here.  Rush Limbaugh has a huge following on his radio show.  How can we tell, he makes $25M per year. In a capitalistic society if you don't have the numbers you get kicked to the curb, but Rush's numbers keep going up making him more and more money.  Why? Because more and more people listen to his show and the stations can sell more and more advertising. Wow, what a concept not to difficult to figure out.  Now let's look at Mike Freeman, blow hard reverse racist writing blogs on a two-bit website.  Don't know what you make, but can't be much since you don't sound very happy.  I think Rush has you beat BRO!!

Let's just say he is a racist (I don't believe he is, but for s..ts and giggles say he is).  Is what someone says worse than their actions?  Can you honestly tell me that what someone says on the radio is worse than killing innocent animals (Michael Vick).  Yet Michael Vick is back in the NFL, because you can't keep him from making a living.  BS, he can work somewhere else, digging ditches, construction, whatever.  If as you say Rush is a "bad person" then what do you consider Michael Vick?  If your answer is that he has done his time, then you admit he is a criminal which Rush is not.  Rush my friend has not committed a crime or done time.

That's why you're a blogger and not a journalist. Journalist are concerned with facts and giving out all the facts regardless of their political bias. Bloggers just write whatever comes to the top of their mind and don't bother with facts. You're no different than the "Limbaugh lickers" and you represent everything that is wrong with bloggers that can just spew garbage across the internet without bothering to fact check anything. And I too mean this "without malice" and it's "just my opinion".

Mike,

   It is not just that you are a donkey's rear oriface, you are an idiot!  You are jealous of Rush and you are obviously dillusional like the rest of the liberal crowd.  Hey, why don't you actually "listen" and I mean with your right/left orifaces, not your pie hole, to Rush sometime and you will see that he is not a racebaiter, but in fact he stands for what is right.  Who in the hell made Sharpton the commissioner of the NFL anyway?  You and your ilk are what make this world seem more like hell every day.  Thank God for being able to live free of you idiots!

Mark

In 2007 Limbaugh said: "The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

Yeah and... isnt that true!

It's been proven wrong and it comes from a website that has an obvious agenda. You mean like the radio show that Rush Limbaugh runs? I see what you mean. I mean Rush's radio show doesn't have an agenda and everybody knows that, NOT. How does it feel to be a Limbaugh TOOL? He was sleeping last night while tools like you and PinTBC were protecting his image, hilarious. ********* You really are a moron. You accuse me of stalking you because I reply in the one thread that you started, then you look in my profile for the threads i am in simply to show up and prove your ignorance. I stopped replying to you in the other thread because you bore me, as you have nothing to say or add other than insulting people who disagree with you. Go back home and find your candyland game, and your pretty little ponies. You can accuse the pink one of being racist and against the purple one to your heart's content. PinTBC

If a person makes a statement of opinion as opposed to fact, the statement may not support a cause of action for defamation. Whether a statement is viewed as an expression of fact or opinion can depend on whether or not the person making the statement would be perceived by the community as being in a position to know whether or not it is true. Anyone believe Freeman would know if this stuff is actually false?
As a "journalist" Freemen certainly should be sure of any quote he uses in his articles.  Just like these professors who ge5t into trouble for plagerizing sections of an article, he is responsible for that which he writes.


A similar defense is "fair comment on a matter of public interest". Limbaugh makes himself and his pursuits a matter of public interest through his show. If Freeman, or anyone else, has the opinion that something about Limbaugh is true, it's hard to prove actual defamation.
This is completely true.  The problem isn't that Freemen said, "I hate Rush and it's because I think he is racist."  What Freemen said was, "Rush is racist and he said these things:a bunch of mis quotes"  and then further dug himself into a hole by claiming in his next blog that well, even if those quotes are false, I believe he said something very much like them."  That isn't his opinion. 

Public figures, which Limbaugh unfortunately is, have a much higher burden of proof. With this, they must prove actual malice.


Did you read this blog?  He also has to prove injury, which he should be able to prove now that he was removed from the bid.

Lastly, a plaintiff is considered "libel-proof" (written defamation is libel) when his reputation has been irreparably stained by prior publications. At the point the challenged statements are published, then, illustrating that a plaintiff already had a poor reputation in the community diminishes any claim for damages resulting from defamatory statements, meaning that the plantiff couldn't recover more than nominal damages for subsequent defamatory statements.  It's safe to say Limbaugh's overall rep is poor.
That might be true, I don't know enough about libel law, but I'd bet a good laywer could present a slew of arguments that would show his reputation in many circles is sterling.

Another Rush cult follower. When are you people going to stop being blind sheep and open your eyes. You're the sheep and Rush is the herder.


Are you a black sheep?

The fake quotes should not have been out there and I'll admit to believing some of them because they sounded in line with some of the real quotes that he is on record for saying (crips-bloods, Barack the Magic Negro, etc).  Still, there is no doubt and there are plenty of real examples of Rush using race to inspire fear and divisiveness (just like some on the left do).  Those decisions by him came back to bite him and now he doesn't want to accept the ramifications of his actions.  Just shows how much of a whiny little &^*%$ he really is.
