Since he was quoting from Paul Joseph Watsons' article on PrisonPlanet.com, you'd think that correctly attributing his source would be the ethical, (even legal and moral), right thing to do!
But no; either the ridicule of being too closely associated with Alex Jones by his neo-con peers, or the welcome response he received from those he has routinely called kooks, (i.e. liberty-loving constitutionalists), or both, has given us an insightful view into the way Limbaughs' moral compass guides him in times of trouble: LIE!!!
Der Spiegel wasn't the source of the article he opened his show with. The recording preserved on YouTube has it in his own voice saying, "Prison Planet dot com", as the editor of the video repeats at the end for emphasis.
Now there are even some who have gone so far as to say that there never was a link to it on his website on Limbaughs' website to PrisonPlanet.com, as if it was all made up by those conspiracy kooks. Others wrote damning critiques of Rush by association with his disfavored sources and not the veracity of their info. In this case one blogger critiqued anothers bloggers' critique and neither liked AJ, to put it mildly.
To me all this serves as a valuable lesson. If you are unwilling to follow the truth wherever it leads, then quit telling others that you are, "on a relentless pursuit of the truth"! Everyone can see by this example, Rush, where you are willing to stop short of it, turn, and run the other way.
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it. - Patrick Henry
