Rush to Judgment

By on 4.28.06 | 7:27PM

Nice try, ABC, but there'll be no takers. Despite its sensationalist headline earlier this evening -- "RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS BEEN ARRESTED ON PRESCRIPTION FRAUD CHARGES, SAYS PALM BEACH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE" -- the real story, as Drudge has just noted, is that all charges against Limbaugh will be dropped in 18 months if he continues to seek treatment from the doctor who's been treating him the last two and half years. It's not an arrest if the case has been settled.

UPDATE: Surprise, Surprise: Both the New York Times and Washington Post are running the same headline on their websites: "Rush Limbaugh Arrested for Prescription Drug Charges." The L.A. Times, however, gets it right: "Limbaugh Settles on Drug Charges."
