“CNN and MSNBC were given ample opportunity to come clean, but both are continuing to masquerade malicious lies [against Rush Limbaugh] as credible,” Media Research Center President and NewsBusters Publisher Brent Bozell said in a statement today…

MRC President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:

The CNN and MSNBC ‘news’ networks are guilty of promoting outright falsehoods and purposely using fabricated disinformation created by left-wing radicals to destroy a conservative leader. There is no grey area here. CNN and MSNBC were given ample opportunity to come clean, but both are continuing to masquerade malicious lies as credible.

Perhaps if they spent less time fact-checking SNL comedy skits and more time fact-checking what they laughably call ‘news,’ they would have a chance to salvage their tattered reputations, sinking even faster with this intentional character assassination.

We are tabulating exactly who has engaged in this smear campaign and will reveal a complete list of willful participants at a press conference next week. Everyone now knows that these statements attributed to Rush are lies. Those who have repeated them have 24 hours to retract and publicly apologize – or you will be named among those intentionally engaged in character assassination.

I understand Mr. Limbaugh has threatened legal action. I hope you all have good lawyers.
