Rush Limbaugh went after Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke again on Tuesday for what he called "coordinating" with President Obama to "scare students about the interest rates on their loans."
During his Tuesday radio show, Limbaugh read a tweet Fluke sent, which said, "#DontDoubleMyRate. Many students will see the interest rate on Fed #StudentLoans increase if Congress doesn't act by 7/1."
Rush Limbaugh has a new headache on his hands: the National Organization for Women is launching another campaign to get him off the air.
The advocacy group announced its renewed efforts in an initiative called"Enough Rush" on Thursday. It is planning a protest on May 18, in addition to targeting local advertisers and radio stations.
NOW president Terry O'Neill told the Daily Caller that she expects Limbaugh to react fiercely. "He is going to be whining and calling us out about his First Amendment rights," she predicted.
NOW has been a long-time adversary of Limbaugh, who often refers to it as the NAGs (National Association of Gals). It is making the new push in the wake of the firestorm surrounding Rush Limbaugh's incendiary comments about Sandra Fluke. Limbaugh had called Fluke, a Georgetown law student, a "prostitute" and a "slut" after she testified on the need for birth control. More than one hundred advertisers and radio affiliates dropped his show as a result of his remarks.
Rush Limbaugh made the right-wing talk-radio industry, and he just might break it. Because now the fallout from the “slut” slurs against Sandra Fluke is extending to the entire political shock-jock genre.
Premiere Networks, which distributes Limbaugh as well as a host of other right-wing talkers, sent an email out to its affiliates early Friday listing 98 large corporations that have requested their ads appear only on “programs free of content that you know are deemed to be offensive or controversial (for example, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Tom Leykis, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity).”
Rush Limbaugh may be sorry he called student advocate Sandra Fluke a "slut," but Ron Paul isn't buying it.
"He's doing it because some people were taking their advertisements off of his program. It was his bottom line he was concerned about," Paul said. "I don't think he's very apologetic. It's in his best interest, that's why he did it."
Who’s more dangerous to American society: Rush Limbaugh or al Qaeda?
Conservatives looking to delegitimize the Occupy Wall Street protests have a new tactic — targeting journalists.
In one of his most unhinged rants yet, hate radio show host Rush Limbaugh argued that the revelation that a famous book about multiple-personality disorder is a hoax means that “nothing is real,” including global warming. “Sybil” was an influential 1973 book written for a popular audience that told of a psychiatrist’s client with “multiple personality disorder.” The book influenced the field of psychoanalysis for years. By the 1990s, questions were raised about the veracity of the tale, and a new book by Debbie Nathan, Sybil Exposed, fully debunks the story, after thousands of people weremistreated.
