Limbaugh responds to attacks with apology today



Published: Sat, March 3, 2012 @ 6:46 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP)

Radio host Rush Limbaugh has apologized to a Georgetown University law student for calling her insulting names. He had come under intense criticism from womens' groups, politicians from both political parties and some of the advertisers on his talk show.

Limbaugh said today on his website that he had chosen the wrong words in his comments about law student Sandra Fluke. He said he "did not intend a personal attack" on her.

Limbaugh had called her a "prostitute" and a "slut" after she testified before Congress about a need for insurance coverage for birth control.

President Barack Obama had telephoned Fluke on Friday to express his support for her.

Doesn't sound like much of an apology to me.

once again the media should take credit for blowing this whole thing out of control. limbaugh did not directly call this woman anything .. the whole point he was trying to make was that BO is taking away our rights....wake up people....before it's too late

Yes he did directly call her these names. You can't spin it any other way. Here's a link to exactly what he said:

it's because of nut jobs like limbaugh and coulter that the right has alienated women and moderates. republicans don't stand a chance in november if distractions like this continue.

The government is not taking away your rights. Only TAX SUPPORTED organizations are included in this blanket coverage which all people will have available. No church or religious organization propagating faith rather than anything else will be included. If you take our tax money, you have to be equal. This is a democracy. What about OUR rights as taxpayers? We all have the right to have access to contraception or anything else. You want YOUR employer deciding not to cover blood transfusions because they're Jehovah's Witness? Give up the martyrdom - or give up receiving our tax money. Either is fine. And yes Rush called the young woman a slut and a prostitute - heard it myself - for talking about contraceptives for MEDICAL issues that is already provided at many Catholic and other religiously supported but taxpayer funded institutions.

He is an OLD PERVERT!!!! A proper woman would slap his face, a man would punch him in the nose. The respectful young woman was testifying to the experience of her friend that had to have her ovary removed. And he twists THAT into a SEX issue? He wants to see sex videos of young college girls? And he says that to an national audience in the middle of the afternoon? That says a lot about his advertisers, the station that broadcasts his trash, the party that cowtows to him, and the moronic sheep that follow his every word.
