Wonder what you would find if you frisked Mike Sanchez’s sources for this story?
Answer: Wikipedia… Seriously.
This is unbelievable! The far-left once again is trying to bring down the giant conservative force that is, Rush Limbaugh. Are we surprised? Demonizing and character assassination 101 taught by liberals. The video clip above is a perfect example!
Remember this quote used by Mike Sanchez to make Rush look like a racist?:
“Limbaugh’s perceived racist diatribes are too many to name. Here’s a sample- he once declared that ‘slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back. I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.”
Is this good reporting on behalf of CNN and Mike Sanchez? Not at all! Why? Because wikipedia is not a credible source for a story! You know, the website where anyone can post anything about someone! In other words, a complete fabrication. Here is why CNN just lost huge credibility:
The first of these quotes has already been debunked most thoroughly, long before Rush’s bid to buy the Rams became public news. It is self-evidently the complete fabrication of someone with a wiki account, which was then picked up by the unscrupulous Huberman and reported as fact (with no citations at all) in his book. The other, also attributed to Huberman, has never been sourced, and Huberman has never cited any original article, or even given any indication as to when this alleged statement was made. Of course, these facts make it utterly impossible to refute the claim; without any date or context, Rush cannot even call witnesses who were present during the alleged confirmation to confirm or deny that he ever made such a statement. It is literally impossible for Limbaugh (or anyone else) to offer convincing proof that they have never at any time made a given statement (other than their own denial, which Rush has already given). It is preposterous to ask anyone to prove that they did not make a statement if you cannot even so much as offer a time and place where the statement is alleged to have occurred.
Bravo CNN! Bravo! Lets make a guy out to be a racist with fabricated evidence… Good reporting. As for Mike Sanchez, you are an awful reporter and have a huge lack of class. When it comes to journalism (on a major cable news network), it is utterly corrupt to use lies in order to assassinate someone’s character, even if your blatantly trying to hurt Limbaugh’s bid for the St. Louis Rams.
But hey, enough about Rush Limbaugh. Lets talk about what a wonderful and nice guy Mike Sanchez is:
Rick Sanchez ran over a man and left the guy for dead.
It was December 10, 1990. Sanchez was leaving a Miami Dolphins game when he ran over a man. Sanchez fled the scene for two hours.
Finally, Sanchez came back. Two hours after the incident, Sanchez was still drunk — well above the legal limit. But Sanchez was a well known Miami reporter with lots of friends on the police force. He was never charged with the hit and run. He just pled no contest to DUI.
The man Sanchez hit and ran away from? He died in 1995, paralyzed and in a nursing home.
And this is the guy using lies to paint someone ELSE as a bad human being? GIVE ME A BREAK!
CNN is once again a joke… The same news network that fact checks a SNL comedy skit, but apparently not their own reporters.
Side-Note: Mike Sanchez hasn’t apologized yet for using wikipedia as a credible source in an attempt to assassinate Rush’s character. Good reporter? Far from it.
*UPDATE: Another idiot (from my home state) trying to use the fabricated quotes from Wikipedia:
Hmm… It’s funny how the left is trying SO desperately to paint Rush as a negative person and they just can’t pull it off. It’s such a pathetic attempt that they are pulling quotes from imaginary sources that only exist in Neverland (not Michael Jackson’s ranch). Haha.
