Why Rush Limbaugh never gets caught lieing

Lieing implies he knows the truth and is telling the opposite, which is never the case given the bull#### he spews.

He never gets caught lying because the people that listen to him believe him, those who don't know he's lying to begin with and doesn't listen to him.

It's a logic paradox.

He's never made a statement without sourcing it.

In 1924, all the technology, tools and engineering skills were available to build the bridge. Now, it's 2014 and none of the technology, tools or engineering skills are available to fix the bridge.

Even if his source was a drunken bum on the street or some wild conspiracy theory nut, we know he gets sources even if he has to pull them out of his fat, racist, narcotics abusing ass.

I think he's gone on the record time and time again that he says what he does for the sake of ratings and shock value. People are just stupid enough to believe that his thoughts are reality.

Not entirely true.  There are folks in my family on both sides of the political spectrum who listen to him for some laughs.

 

I feel sorry for people who take what he says seriously.

This. The majority of pundits, on any side, are just in it for the money. Being a loud moron is good for business. Most likely have political leanings that side with their audience, but maybe not as extreme as they appear to be.

Others buy into their own crap. That gives us Glenn Beck.

I listen occasionally just  to get a sense for what the other side is "thinking". 

 

He never flat out lies. He just grossly exaggerates and takes things out of context. He's actually a pretty smart guy. A complete douche, but a smart douche. 

But our trip was different. It was to be a classic affirmation of everything right and true in the national character. A gross physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country. But only for those with true grit.

Of course he does.  He flat out lies all the time.  And when he's called on it, he claims he didn't say that, or didn't mean that, or it wasn't intended to be a factual statement, just like Santorum really said "bluhh people."  And he just keeps denying and spinning until people get tired of talking to a brick shithouse.

to bad he often times uses either a bad source, or takes them way out of context. I had a job where the boss had him playing all day, him and hanity and another overly excitable guy who I can't think of his name. Just for ####s and giggles I'd look into things he said, so yeah I know the BS he does.

But if not for that job I'd never of heard this

Limbaugh Lies to 13-Year-Old Girl

 

Lies Limbaugh has Told

 

http://mediamatters.org/limbaughwire/?tab=all

 

http://www.scoobievslimbaugh.blogspot.com/

 

Rush Limbaugh is an entertainer whose viewpoints simply have no basis in fact or reality. Here are a few whoppers, with many more listed in the source material:

1. "It has not been proven that nicotine is addictive, the same with cigarettes causing emphysema [and other diseases]." (Radio show, 4/29/94)

2. LIMBAUGH: On the Republicans' "Contract With America": "The New York Times never ran anything on the contract 'til after the election. The rest of the news media hardly talked about it at all." (TV, 4/6/95)

REALITY: In the 42 days between the announcement of the "Contract with America" and the Nov. 8, 1994 election, the New York Times published 45 articles that mentioned the contract--more than one a day. The Nexis computer database reports that more than 1400 pieces mentioning the contract were published before the election.

3. LIMBAUGH: "Banks take the risks in issuing student loans and they are entitled to the profits." (Radio show, quoted in FRQ, Summer/93)

REALITY: Banks take no risks in issuing student loans, which are federally insured. 

4. LIMBAUGH: Comparing the 1950s with the present: "And I might point out that poverty and economic disparities between the lower and upper classes were greater during the former period." (Told You So, p. 84)

REALITY: Income inequality, as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau, fell from the 1940s to the late 1960s, and then began rising. Inequality surpassed the 1950 level in 1982 and rose steadily to all-time highs in 1992. (Census Bureau's "Money Income of Households, Families and Persons in the United States")

5. LIMBAUGH: "Oh, how they relished blaming Reagan administration policies, including the mythical reductions in HUD's budget for public housing, for creating all of the homeless! Budget cuts? There were no budget cuts! The budget figures show that actual construction of public housing increased during the Reagan years." (Ought to Be, p. 242-243)

REALITY: In 1980, 20,900 low-income public housing units were under construction; in 1988, 9,700, a decline of 54 percent ;Statistical Abstracts of the U.S).In terms of 1993 dollars, the HUD budget for the construction of new public housing was slashed from $6.3 billion in 1980 to $683 million in 1988. "We're getting out of the housing business. Period," a Reagan HUD official declared in 1985.

6. LIMBAUGH: "There's no such thing as an implied contract." (Radio show, quoted in FRQ, Spring/93)

REALITY: Every first-year law student knows there is.

  Not all student loans are insured by the Federal Government, at least at the time that the el Rushbo

made that statement. All student loans now must originate with or be insured by (thus subject to) the Federal

government. The way it used to work was banks would issue a college loan, and then sell it to Sallie Mae, in

much the same way that mortgages would be sold to Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, minus the securitizing. Sallie Mae

qualifying loans would be backed by the Federal Government for the principle, so banks would most often make those

loans, but that wasn't the entire market. There were several banks that would make college loans with higher interest

rates, or fees, early payment schedules or even balloon payments, none of which would be accepted by Sallie Mae,

but were still made, frequently because they had much higher penalty and interest rates attached. These were private

loans that banks would make, and these were the loans Rush was most likely, and correctly, referring to. These loans now

are no longer allowed, as part of the Frank/Dodd financial regulatory reform.

 

 

 

  Media matters is not exactly an independant and unbiased research group, despite claims they might make.

I'd take them with the same grain of salt that I'd take anything Limbaugh says.
