This is OUTRAGREOUS. Please email CNN and complain....
For two days now I've watched this little CNN news spot on Rush Limbaugh's attack on MJ which finishes off with "Limbaugh has apologized".

That fat fuck has NOT apologized for mimicking MJF and accusing him of either not taking his meds or acting.

HE ONLY APOLOGIZED FOR BEING WRONG AND IS STILL ACCUSING HIM OF PURPOSELY OVER-MEDICATING.

NO apology for the mimicking. NO apology for accusing Fox of being dishonest, because he's STILL SAYING FOX DID SOMETHING PURPOSELY TO MAKE THE AD MORE DRAMATIC!!!

LIMBAGH:
"OK. I need to apologize. I was wrong, because I speculated he either didn't take his medication or he was acting -- never said the word "faking." Now, if you've got -- if you people on the left want to equate acting with faking, I mean, go ahead. George Clooney would be a faker. All your favorite actors -- we'll call them fakers. I never used the word.
....
But I was wrong. He did take his medications, and now, he took too much medication. The point is, he did something differently to appear in this ad than when he appears on Boston Legal.
....
But he himself said he took too much medication. He didn't do that when he goes on Boston Legal, but it happened for the taping of this ad; and I think the reason for that is so you would really, really hate Republicans, because Republicans don't want to cure it."

WHY THE #$%^ DOES CNN GIVE THAT FULL CREDIBILITY AS AN APOLOGY???

HE IS NOT APOLOGIZING FOR MOCKING FOX. HE IS NOT APOLOGIZING FOR ACCUSING HIM OF BEING DISHONEST, HE IS BLOODY WELL DOING IT AGAIN!!!!

1. My email to CNN:
Go here to give yours: http://www.cnn.com/feedback/cnntv /


For two days I have watched your news on Rush Limbaugh end with "he has apologized".

Do you know what Rush apologized for? For being wrong about the type of dishonesty he accused Fox of. He still claims that Fox purposely over-medicated himself.

Go here:

As you can see if you read what Rush said on Oct. 26th there is no apology for mocking Fox or for accusing Fox of purposely being dishonest. Rather he again accuses Fox of porposely being dishonest.

Ironic that on the day you have L.Cheney beating you for being biased you've given a free pass to the rightwing radio host that her husband Dick goes to for interviews.

2. Mine
Rush Limbaugh apologized for his lies about Michael J. Fox? Get a dictionary. His apology consisted of more smears and lies. Maybe Rush is over-medicating again.

As has been asked before (I'm sure), does CNN stand for 'Certainly Not News'?
