What about those fake Rush Limbaugh quotes that made the rounds on Old Media? Can we say that depending on a single cite by an anonymous person on the Internet is clear and reckless disregard for the facts in a legal sense?
From an article in the American Thinker …this IP address [188.8.131.52] is used as a gateway by the law firm Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler LLP …
There should be enough brain power on the internet to figure out who’s responsible, that is, if everything isn’t already deleted and the computer removed and destroyed.
Unlikely. If I were them, I would claim that a computer at the firm had been hacked in to and used as a relay for anonymous posting. That happens quite a bit.
Even if that were true, can’t the hacker be traced? Abby on NCIS does that routinely!
Via Ace lack of full disclosure from the NFL.
I think it’s a bummer that Limbaugh got bumped from the group purchasing that football team, but I can’t get worked up about it. It’s just some rough business and that’s the way of the world. A coordinated campaign of attributing obviously bogus and inflammatory quotes to him without bothering to check, that sets me off. At what point does it become common knowledge that Old Media will promote lies to achieve their own ideological goals and are therefore simply not to be trusted?
Goes without saying. I don’t care a pin about football, but I do care that the full weight of the United States government and its allies in the media don’t come down on a private citizen.
