RUSH: Now, ladies and gentlemen, yesterday on this program I was handed in the middle of the program an updated news story out of Ferguson, Missouri, from the Washington Post. The Washington Post story said that one of the autopsies had discovered marijuana in the gentle giant’s system. Today the National Journal has accused me of character assassination for mentioning that. The National Journal dalso has accused Matt Drudge of character assassination for posting a link to the Washington Post story.
Here’s what it said: “Conservative thought leaders such as the Drudge Report and Rush Limbaugh seized on this new bit of information. But smoking pot is hardly a smoking gun, nor is it indicative of a criminal mind (as Coloradans and Washingtonians would attest).” The character assassination of Michael Brown. The Washington Post doesn’t come under any criticism here, and they’re the source of this! Doesn’t say anything about it.
