POLL: Did Rush Limbaugh Have to Apologize?
What's your opinion on the conservative talk show host taking on the feminist law student?
Conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh was in the headlines this week after he called law student Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" in response to her testimony to a Congressional committee.
Fluke, a women's rights activist, is a law student at Georgetown University, who has argued that the cost of contraception should be covered by student health insurance. In her remarks on Capitol Hill, Fluke said it is cost prohibitive for a sexually active student to pay for the cost of birth control for a full year.
Limbaugh used his radio broadcasts to address this topic off and on for three days, criticizing Fluke for her stance - accusing her of being promiscuous and calling her a "slut" and "prostitute." He later apologized on air but is still feeling the repercussions of his remarks, since several of his radio sponsors have pulled out.
Was Limbaugh right in his substance, but not the way he went about his comments? Was he totally off base?
