Actually, only Sanchez retracts it and even he’s content to say that CNN’s simply been unable to verify it, which kinda sorta leaves it up to the viewer to decide whether Rush said it or not. Still, watch these two as a study in contrast. Sanchez reproaches himself, admits they shouldn’t have reported it, and apologizes. Shuster’s take? “So, just to clarify.”
Funny how both of these networks found a quote that happened to be useful in bludgeoning a prominent conservative too good to check. I wonder when was the last time they got the same fact wrong when reporting a political story. Can’t happen too often, can it? Must be Limbaugh’s dumb luck. Click the image to watch.
