Rush Limbaugh Arrested and Liberal Blamed
Reported by Deborah - April 28, 2006
O'Reilly said he didn't want to report the story about Rush but claimed he had to do it so he brought Judge Napolitano on to do the spin. Napolitano claimed, right after O'Reilly plugged his new book, that Limbaugh was the victim of an aggressive, Liberal Palm Beach Prosecutor who (gasp) donated to the Gore/Lieberman campaign. However, Napolitano said the arrest was "a collossal victory for Limbaugh". 4/28/06
Napolitano explained that Limbaugh was arrested and released at the same time and will not need to go to trial. After paying a $30,000 fine he will undergo rehab with the same Doctor that originally prescribed the Oxycontin and if he stays clean for 18 months, charges will be dropped.
O'Reilly expressed sympathy for poor Limbaugh because the Leno and Letterman will be laughing at him tonight but Napolitano assured him that Rush would keep all his listeners. O'Reilly made sure to stress once again that it was all politically motivated.
