    Appears you don't listen to his show. Do you realize that his show is recorded and transcripted to include his sources?

    If you were to check his website, you would see the transcripted material with sources.

    Except his is political speech. That must be protected to the maximum. Slander and libel against the individual should be cautioned against.

The key to slander, what makes it hard to prove, is that you have to show that there has been negative impact (usually in some financial or business quarter). That's easy to see in this case. Then the charges of racism have to be addressed, are they true. Well at this point someone has to prove that what they said is true. These are civil not legal proceedings so it's not like it's the State prosecuting someone (in which case damage and falsehood of statement must be shown by the State). Those whom slandered him will have to defend what they say because they are the one's being sued.

    It is actually the law in this country. From a NYT case from the 60s, related to reporting sivil rights cases, I believe.

    Try a google, you'll find that the burden of proof is on the one bringing the suit, and the hurdle is higher for public figures than private figures.

    Well alright, though I think in this case Rush has a very clear and easy win.

    No offense, but hopefully we can get Right in here to talk about law things because this makes no sense.

    Now, I understand that he would have to prove somehow there was some kind of legitimate negative effect upon him BASED on the statements for it to happen.

    But how can one "prove" a negative. If I say "Al Sharpton once said that slavery was good, we just need to have the whites being the slaves instead. That's the correct order of things, and what god would want, the white men beneath our heel" how can he "prove" he didn't say it? You're asking to prove a negative and to my knowledge our court system does not require a negative to be proven.

    Indeed, the fact that those that made the claim have chosen not to retract it despite being informed that its false and without being able to give any further evidence that it is true in and of itself proves it to at least be unverifiable.

    What you're suggesting is the proof of a negative, and I do not know of such a standard in our court. Rush would have to make his case that he actually suffered an tangible negative effect DUE to the words (that's positive proof) but his "proof" that they were stating it is untrue is their inability to present proof that he actually stated it.

    If the law worked as you said, which I'm almost positive it doesn't, slander/libel would almost never be able to happen because you can't prove that you did not say anything if the person making the claim doesn't give a reference or some kind of back up to when you said it.

    Re: Sources: Checketts to drop Limbaugh

    I am gonna unsubscribe from this thread before my respect for liberals diminishes completely. But before I do, would anyone PLEASE point me to these so-called racist remarks in context.

    Or has it just broken down into "Rush is a bad, bad man and deserves to be lied about and slandered"?
