Skip to comments.Public Radio Publicist Apologizes For Controversial Remarks About Limbaugh
Posted on 07/21/2010 12:30:13 PM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
This morning, The Daily Caller posted a story about an email message radio publicist Sarah Spitz reportedly sent to Journolist, a now-defunct listserv.
"If you were in the presence of a man having a heart attack, how would you respond?" The Daily Caller article began. "As he clutched his chest in desperation and pain, would you call 911? Would you try to save him from dying? Of course you would."
I made poorly considered remarks about Rush Limbaugh to what I believed was a private email discussion group from my personal email account. As a publicist, I realize more than anyone that is no excuse for irresponsible behavior. I apologize to anyone I may have offended and I regret these comments greatly; they do not reflect the values by which I conduct my life.

It’s always enlightening when a liberal looter says what they really believe, isn’t it?
So are we to assume she judges every situation on a case-by-case basis? God has a great sense of humor. She should make sure she is healthy.
The digital age is a b*tch, isn’t it? lol
Yeah, and they think an apology makes everything right Or left again....
“I apologize (to anyone I may have offended)”
I hate non-apology apologies
Sorry. Insincere ... and she did not really apologize TO Rush. She’s having to apologize because she got caught, NOT because the realized the error of her ways.
“I’m sorry I got caught.”
She’s lying about her values. This woman would stab anyone in the back for the slightest advantage.
I am not really sorry at all, I am mad that I have been exposed.
Photo needed to judge guilt or innocence....
I guess they believe their hate is ok because they only express their bigotry in private???
But of course, no particular person will get that apology...
She needs to take a page from the Sherrod response and add that the email exerpt excluded the breadth of the story
So when is someone at NPR getting fired? Isn’t this what they require for anyone else making mistakes? They demand a sacrificial lamb from everyone else—where’s theirs?
Its not only Rush she needs to apologize to. She needs to apologize to the American public for misleading and lying to us.
Obama needs to summon Rush and her to the Rose Garden for a beer.
Agreed. The fact that she had to point out it was private discussion underscore that she still privately wishes Rush would die a horrible death.
Liberals are just soooooooooooooooooooo tolerant, eh?
She doesn’t work for NPR. She works for a local radio station and helps produces a show that is picked up by some NPR stations.
Yes, you get a peek at their heart, don’t you.
Uggghh-it really is. Every time I think of running for public office, I remember things I have written on this forum that could haunt me if they were taken out of context.
Not good enough. I want her FIRED!!I don’t want my taxdollars going to pay for someone like that. Here is the addy if anyone wants to call and demand her resignation:
She is simply a liar. She meant every word she said in that email; sad and stupid as it may be.
In my opinion, the only regret here is that they were “found out.” Same goes for Elitist politicians and the MSM who are doing their utmost to destroy our country. Exposure is all they fear and power is their God.
Yes, they do. You thought you were on a "private" e-mail exchange, and so you showed your true colors.
Sarah, you're a disgusting piece of human filth. And I don't care WHO publicizes that comment.
It’s still a ‘public radio’ station, which means it is supported with tax dollars. I think the cow should be fired.
They reflect the kind of person you are - evil, nasty, and worthless.
She is essentially a government employee. As Ms. Sherrod says 'Have you ever seen government employees lose their jobs?'
Translation: “I wish I had not been caught.”
JournoList: 65 Names Confirmed (so far ...)
Yes they do.
“Please excuse us for accidently revealing ourselves to be the intolerant, hateful, anti-American blood-thirsty bastards we have been all along. And she doesn’t work for us, anyway.”
Just for the record, some of us recall the following joke that made the rounds about 15 years ago. Here’s one version:
Imagine that you are a press photographer on assignment, covering a terrible flood.
You’re at the edge of a raging river, and you hear calls for help. When you investigate, you find Hillary Clinton clinging desperately to a branch in the water near the edge.
You have the opportunity to offer a stronger branch and pull her to safety, or to take a Pulitzer-prize-winning photograph of her drowning.
Your moral choice: Do you go for f-stop or shutter speed?
Well, that was a pretty tepid apology to Rush and his 20,000,000+ listeners many of whom were appalled at the comment, and as conservatives, would be regardless the object of her murderous vitriol.
And yes, what she suggested that she would do is murder. That’s a real Joe Stalin/Pol Pot/Adolph Hitler attitude. Just kill ‘em if they don’t agree with you.
Who is offended or even surprised? The word Offended doesn't even begin to describe it. I take these attacks on Rush, Mark Levin, Matt Drudge and Ann Coulter as attacks on me, my family and the American way of life. These non-apology apologies are just part of the game book of the statist scum. I will seek to destroy them. Politically speaking of course. No apology will be offered.

Horse hockey! She knew EXACTLY what she was saying, and to whom. I don’t accept her “apology”, because it Normal people are offended because she is an unrepentant bigot.
The real truth is she would just keep texting on her phone and step right over the body of anyone!
Except Rush, of course.
Allow me to employ my liberal to conservative translator: "I sent my email to the wrong place. It makes me look bad. I'm sorry you are all so stupid that I have to pretend to apologize. Can I go now?"
“Its always enlightening when a liberal looter says what they really believe, isnt it?”
You can bet that the only thing that this low life piece of crap is “sorry for” is the fact that her comments went public.
I guess that the thing that really frosts me is that NPR is (1) constantly begging that we help support their “quality” broadcasting, yet (2) they are first in line to grab those tax dollars that we the people are forced to cough up.
I have gotten to the point where my contempt and loathing of libtards is only surpassed by my love of God, Guns and Country.
Best that one (or any) of those idiots stay the hell out of my way, come election day.
You hit it. That is the sum and substance of every liberal "apology."
Maybe some day she will be clutching her heart and no one will help.
