Stephanie Miller smears Rush Limbaugh with bogus quotes

Earlier today on the Stephanie Miller show, she and her co-horts repeated at least two completely bogus Rush Limbaugh quotes. Video is below, and a transcript of the segment is here.

Both the slavery and James Earl Ray quotes are made up; they were added to wikiquote.org without sourcing information and then printed in a book by Jack Huberman. See the last link for our June post discussing how the smear started. Note also that Miller's repeating of the false quotes occurred after other sources had admitted that they were unable to verify them, even if those other sources didn't have the integrity to issue full corrections and apologies.

Instead of taking Miller to task for her smears, expect many ethically-challenged "liberals" to hand-wave her smears away.
