Limbaugh a Racist? What's the real story?

Two of the most popular videos in the News & Politics category this week speak to the heated debate of late around Conservative talk show radio host, Rush Limbaugh.

Brave New Films (known for its videos attacking the right-wing, including the campaign-season hit: "John McCain's YouTube problem just became a nightmare") recently released this video, called Rush Limbaugh Is a Racist:

And popular conservative vlogger, HowTheWorldWorks, posted this video in response - claiming that Robert Greenwald, the man behind Brave New Films is a liar attempting to defame Limbaugh through unsubstantiated mis-quotes.

So - now that you've heard two sides of the story -- what do you think?

Ya know I just watched HTWW's video(he blocked me from commenting) and I notice something. He never really proves that the information is false, he just says it is. I never see how it the quote is a lie at 0:48, he doesn't prove it to the viewers at all.

Also when he goes to the sources and it pulls up the book in the Amazon store. He doesn't prove that the quote was fake or the blogger was fake and doesn't even show the viewers the quote from the book.

I don't think HTWW actually knows how to present an argument appropriately because each time the viewer relies on his word and not actually showing physical evidence or sources in his videos. The viewer doesn't get any context while watching.
