For the second time this week, Rush Limbaugh receives Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World” award for airing the edited comments of Rep. John Dingell’s response to a question regarding Hezbollah to make it sound as though Dingell was supporting Hezbollah.

This edited comment received a lot of attention in the blogosphere and the media. The Washington Times had to print an apology for publishing an editorial using the edited comments (h/t ThinkProgress). As usual for these wingnuts, if you can’t beat them then resort to lying, stealing, cheating and editing.

Can you help us out?
