Hirsen Silent on One Particular Doctor-Shopping Case
Topic: Newsmax

A Dec. 29 Newsmax item by James Hirsen stated that "the unpleasant subject of celebrity doctor shopping has once again been highlighted" due to the death of actress Brittany Murphy, adding that "Anna Nicole Smith, Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson and Murphy were able to obtain a multitude of dangerous prescription drugs, revealing an apparent failure and inconsistency in the law."

Hirsen conspicuously leaves one famous name off his list: Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh was arrested on a charge of doctor-shopping for painkillers in Florida in 2006; he reached an agreement with prosecutors in which the charges were dropped on the condition that Limbaugh attend a treatment program and pay court costs.
