James Earl Ray: Rush Limbaugh?

I've never listened to Rush Limbaugh but I hear alot of trash talk calling him a hater.
Some even say that he is a racist. There is one particular quote I read:

"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Jones, We miss you James, Godspeed."

James Earl Jones was the man who murdered Martin Luther King. Did Rush Limbaugh really say this quote about James Earl Jones. If it's true, I can't believe he is such a hater.

I'm sorry to disappoint but Rush Limbaugh never said that quote.
It was made up back in about 2005.
Wikiquote is a website affiliated with Wikipedia and they published this quote as true. They are using a bogus source and some people believe the quote is real.
The book "101 People Who Are Really Screwing America" by Jack Huberman contains the Rush Limbaugh quote about James Earl Ray and is used on the current version of the Wikiquote page as the source.
It is not true. Rush Limbaugh is no saint but this specific quote does not belong to him.
