But, it seemed like so much fun for progs when they do it?! Right? I mean, it was all just for fun, right? Politics? But, progs don't like him, right? Therefore, they can do these things with impunity, right?
Rush Limbaugh threatens to sue Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

Radio host Rush Limbaugh has threatened to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for defamation, The Daily Caller has learned.
Limbaugh retained the services of lawyer Patty Glaser and demanded that the DCCC “preserve all records in anticipation of a lawsuit for defamation and interference” after the Democratic Party group led a campaign against Limbaugh based on out-of-context statements the host made about sexual assault. Limbaugh’s legal team delivered a letter to DCCC representatives Monday informing them of the legal threat. Limbaugh has also demanded a public apology.
“The DCCC may believe it to be immune from liability by quoting words, taken out of context. This is untrue,” Glaser said. “There is significant on point precedent in the 9th Circuit for holding an organization responsible for falsifying meaning through selective quoting. In Price v. Stossel, the court held that, if a party accurately quotes ‘a statement actually made by a public figure, but presents the statement in a misleading context, thereby changing the viewer’s understanding of the speaker’s words,’ that constitutes defamation.”

Rush Limbaugh :rofl:

The problem with Rush is, some people actually think he's a legitimate source for information. Folks hear his show and think they're listening to the news.

Man.....It's just funny seeing how many liberals go bananas at the mention of Rush :dancing:

If they have a sliver of a brain...they know he is correct....so their only recourse is to lie and insult.

I hate being right all the time.

Ergo, one needn't have more than a sliver of brain in order to agree with The Oxyconted One...

That explains... ...a lot!

Progs just hate Rush. They all but thought his had been disposed. But alas, his case will be decided in a court of law. Remember though, if a prog laughs or ridicules Rush Limbaugh, it fully means that if he wins the judge was wrong. This is the world in the mind of a prog.

If he wins, then he has a valid case. Don't know why this is so hard for you to wrap your head around. If he doesn't win, then what?

This is just damned difficult as the prog method is drive by and mis-quote. Here's another article on the same Rush topic from a prog newspaper. Not that it's needed, it's just another indicator that it's happening.


Limbaugh threatens to sue DCCC for ‘out of context’ quotes about sexual consent
Rush Limbaugh is hopping mad at the Democratic Party — but this time he’s threatening to do more than just talk about it on the radio.
The conservative pundit is threatening to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for a series of fundraising e-mails that suggested Limbaugh was condoning campus rape in comments he made on his widely syndicated program on Sept. 15.
In a letter to the Washington-based organization intended for delivery Monday morning, Limbaugh’s lawyer demanded a retraction and a public apology for the fundraising e-mails. The letter indicated Limbaugh will sue for defamation and business “interference” if his demand isn’t met.

This was not too long ago - no lawsuits ever came of it nor has he threatened the "liberal media" with a lawsuit over this alleged "out of context" quoting. And I will bet anything that nothing is coming out of this blow of hot air either. Yes, blow of hot air. That's all the ole' drug addict can muster.

Limbaugh Ties Robin Williams Suicide to ‘General Unhappiness’ of the Left

And then he had to "clarify" because he was quoted "out of context".

Rush Limbaugh Clarifies ‘Out-of-Context’ Remarks About Robin Williams’ Death

Bottom line, Rushbo is a useless blowhard and I can only laugh about his army of intellectually challenged dittoheads. They're truly pathetic.

I guess he really likes giving money to lawyers. Since New York Times v. Sullivan, a public figure has the burden of proving a statement is defamatory by clear and convincing evidence that it was both false and made with actual malice (meaning the defendant either knew it was false or made the statement with reckless disregard as to the truth). When statements are made in the public interest (which this arguably is) about a public figure (which Rush definitely is -- and most statements about public figures are in the public interest), this is a tough hurdle to clear.

There are really good policy reasons for this, not least of which is the importance of a vibrant public discourse, which the Supreme Court has held repeatedly to be the bedrock of our nation. But whatever, all y'all can disagree with me, which I'm sure you will.

Amused by all the content-free reactions so far. :rofl:

I agree. I am just chuckling about the level of hate. :rofl:

Who know if the lawsuit will go forward....but at least he is getting some more press.

I wonder how many millions he is worth? :rofl:
