    You're the one who answered my post.




    btw, you're screaming argument was silly. I did go back and scan it, near the end, where you triumphantly declare you've turned up proof of my definitive statements about the result of a trial .... you completely ignore the conditional phrase with which your proof sentence begins. Funny damn ****.

    This higher burden of proof was imposed by the Supreme Court in a separate case than the one that imposed the burden of proof on the plaintiff.
    lol Rush is a private citizen not a public official.

    He is neither a private citizen, nor a public official, he is a public figure with respect to the law. As such, there are special rules w/ regard to slander and libel, which mean that he has higher hurdles to jump with regard to burden of proof.

    He has attorneys, I'm sure they know what they are doing.

    I am sure attorneys file frivolous lawsuits almost daily. If it was as simple as that, Tort Reform would not be an issue in the country today.

They misconstrued what he had said, misrepresented his character, to have a real business and financial result against the man. Last I checked, that was illegal. But I guess it's ok if people merely of the opinion of Rush as something, but no proof there of, run their mouths.

    I find it a sad state when based on political disposition, a large number of people would smear someone so much as to prevent their ability to engage in business.
    Funny how the Free Market only receives credit when it does something the Right likes.

    The legal definition, if this article is correct, fits quite nicely and Limbaugh will lose the lawsuit, should it be filed.

    Limbaugh whines about being libeled and defamed, and turns around and does it himself. Standup dood


    and ps, the article and potential lawsuit are not about a Sharpton quote at all; they are about Limbaugh statements about Sharpton's actions.



    Your kidding right? The minute after Gavin Gato was killed sharpton started flaming the fires.


    Sharpton, who arranged a rally in Crown Heights after Cato's death,[42] has been seen by some commentators as inflaming tensions by making remarks that included "If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house"[
