Shepard Smith Acts Surprised that the ACLU is Backing Limbaugh

Reported by Donna - April 28, 2005

On a segment that featured Rush Limbaugh and his appeal to the State Supreme Court of Florida over seizure of his medical records, Shepard Smith acted surprised that Limbaugh was being supported by the American Civil Liberty Union (ACLU).

On a show that was filled with the Michael Jackson trial/debacle and the missing woman from Georgia, Shepard Smith took time to present a short story on Rush Limbaugh.

Smith said: "The Florida Supreme Court, rejecting an appeal from Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk show host, over the seizure of his medical records. Prosecutors took the records while investigating whether the conservative talk show host illegally purchased pain killers.

As of now, he has not been charged with a single crime. Limbaugh says he's innocent and argues the case threatens privacy rights, a point supported by, (pause) of all groups to be in support of Rush Limbaugh, the American Civil Liberties Union. Hmmmm."

Comment: The ACLU does not just take on 'liberal' causes. But you might think so by Smith acting surprised. By acting surprised and his little 'hmmm', Smith actually emphasizes this point, which is made quite often by others on Fox. Yes, it's true that Limbaugh has not been charged with a crime, but with this win for the prosecutors, could one be far behind?
