You’ve already heard about the fact that, in order to block any chance of Rush having an ownership interest in an NFL team, liberal talking heads (including Al Sharpton) and the MSM attributed manifestly false quotations to Rush, in order to accuse him of being a grotesque racist. However, before visiting PowerLine, I hadn’t seen the photograph CNN used of Rush. It’s interesting that, not only did they use a false, slanderous quote, the CNN “newsies” also used an antiquated photo of Rush from a time before he slimmed and trimmed:
He looks fabulous now (as you can see below), but they sold him to the public as someone who looks like a bloated plantation owner:
UPDATE: Contrary to CNN’s fondest dreams, Rush is not Jefferson Davis “Boss” Hogg:
UPDATE II: I have it on very good authority that Bill O’Reilly used exactly the same mean-spirited picture of Rush. (I wouldn’t know since O’Reilly has never piqued my interest.) The Radio Patriot suggests that, in Bill’s case, it may be simple professional jealousy. If that’s the case, Bill should give it up. He’s not in Rush’s league, so there’s no competition.
