Rush Limbaugh

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, serving as an NFL commentator on ESPN, alleged that slumping Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was being propped up by the "social concern" of a media "very desirous that a black quarterback can do well." After the remark, the Eagles shot to 11-4 and McNabb to a Pro Bowl berth. Limbaugh lost his football gig and went into rehab for a pill addiction. AP
