  • 'Rush Limbaugh Show' responds to Brock

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month's supply of birth control pills for just $9. Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law. “Without insurance coverage,

    The controversy with Rush Limbaugh gave Sandra Fluke instant name recognition in the world of media and politics. So it was only a matter of time before someone asked her about running for office. Fluke said for now she is focused on law school, but that “maybe someday” she’ll consider the idea. At a panel about women’s history, Fluke said: “Numerous American women have actually written to me in the last few weeks to say that I should run for office [...] And maybe someday I will. But for now, I actually have to finish law school.” Not a yes,...

    Sandra Fluke: Politicians should be required to pass pro-woman litmus test to get elected By Michelle Fields -- The Daily Caller 12:09 AM 03/21/2012 ADVERTISEMENT Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke said on Tuesday that candidates running for office should have to pass a pro-woman litmus test in order to get elected. Fluke, an advocate for the Obama administration’s plan to force health insurers to cover birth control, was on Capitol Hill for a forum on “Opportunities and Challenges for a New Generation of Women,” in celebration of Women’s History Month. “There should be a litmus test that they be pro-women...

    On Tuesday night, following the announcement of the outcome of the Illinois Republican presidential primary, Ann Coulter offered Derek Hunter, a nighttime host on WMAL-FM in Washington, her thoughts on the debate about birth control — and the role Georgetown Law student and contraception activist Sandra Fluke has played in it. “They keep calling her Sandra ‘Fl-uck’ on MSNBC,” Coulter said. “I think they think it sounds better than Sandra ‘Fluke,’ but I think Sandra ‘Fl-uck’ sounds like a Chinese aphrodisiac.” The ordeal goes back earlier to a February congressional hearing in which Fluke told lawmakers that it costs a...

    Emboldened by Rush Limbaugh’s public apology over the weekend to a law school student whom he had called a “slut” and a “prostitute,” critics of the radio talk show host are intensifying their online campaign against his advertisers. he apology, they said, was a signal that the campaign was working. On Sunday, a seventh company, ProFlowers, said that it was suspending all of its advertising on “The Rush Limbaugh Show” despite his apologetic statement a day earlier. For now, the ad boycott is uncomfortable but not crippling for Mr. Limbaugh, who is estimated to make $50 million a year and...

    After decades as a dominant force in talk radio, Rush Limbaugh could be in for his biggest fight yet. But the threat isn't from activist groups who dislike his conservative politics. It is from one of his own: former Republican governor of Arkansas and onetime presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee. Starting April 9, Mr. Huckabee, a Fox News Channel commentator, will go head-to-head with Mr. Limbaugh in a syndicated radio program airing in the noon to 3 p.m. Eastern time, weekday slot.

    YOUNGSTOWN State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves. Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

    The mainstream media in Washington, DC is apoplectic after Gov. Sarah Palin backed Andrew Breitbart's project, "The Vetting." In an exclusive article for Breitbart.com entitled "Breitbart Is Here," Palin had endorsed Breitbart's effort to vet Barack Obama, his Republican rivals--and the mainstream media itself: Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart. During the ’08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldn’t be bothered to investigate Barack...

Fluke, a so-called contraceptive advocate, rose to prominence after conservative talker Rush Limbaugh called her a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ on his radio show. On Thursday, O’Reilly reported that Fluke was being represented by Anita Dunn’s public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker. Dunn, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, served as White House Communications Director in 2009.. O’Reilly found on Friday that Fluke is also dating the son of “Democratic stalwart” William Mutterperl, who has made numerous donations to...

And to repeat a point I made in that same post, for politicos and their apparatchiks, this “debate” is of course 99 percent about partisanship. When asked about Rush’s comments, Romney tersely said, “It’s not the language I would have used.” When asked about Maher this afternoon, though, he unloaded: In an appearance on the Sean Hannity radio show, Romney said, “Frankly, what Bill Maher said, and I finally read the transcripts, I was offended, outraged that a person would...

Because it was a routine where that word came in at just the right moment. Context is very important, (snip) stand-up comedy is the final frontier of free speech.

Burnett brought up Axelrod’s condemnation of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh for having called Georgetown student and activist Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” — a condemnation that proved problematic in light of his decision to appear on Maher’s show given the comedian’s own history of referring to women — mainly, but not solely, conservative women in the public eye, like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann — by derogatory...

But nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison told The Daily Caller that Limbaugh’s numbers likely are going no where but up — despite the anti-Limbaugh push. ...more...

    According to Joe Williams, the senior White House reporter for Politico, Rush Limbaugh is like the "serial murderer" who was caught with "three bodies in the trunk." The veteran journalist made the outrageous comparison on Tuesday's Martin Bashir show, a program that included other liberal smears against the conservative radio host. Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "... [Law enforcement] always would catch the serial murder because he was driving around with a busted taillight, not because he had, like, three bodies in the trunk."...

    SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., March 13 (UPI) -- The syndicator of Rush Limbaugh's U.S. radio talk show said it was canceling all national commercials airing during the show for two weeks, a Web site reported. Premiere Networks, the largest U.S. radio syndication company based on programming popularity, said in a memo to affiliate-station managers it suspended the national commercials airing on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" from Monday through March 19, Radio-Info.com reported. While some radio stations pay huge fees to air Limbaugh's program, many air it for free or at low cost, provided they let Premiere run several minutes of national...

    Editor's note: Sandra Fluke is a third-year law student at Georgetown University Law Center and has served as president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice. (CNN) -- Last month, students from several Catholic universities gathered to send a message to the nation that contraception is basic health care. I was among them, and I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. I joined these students in speaking at a media event because I believe...

    This contraception thing … are you operating under the mistaken impression that what we’ve been talking about here is a right to use contraception? Not so. If you listened carefully to the words of the now-famous Sandra Fluke you will have heard that the issue wasn’t whether or not she or her horny classmates could use contraception – but rather who would pay for it. Fluke, you see, was demanding that the pills and condoms be paid for by someone else; and now she’s been joined by aaaaaaacitivists across the country. Somehow in this age of entitlement contraception has become...

    Now that the media feeding frenzy has calmed at least for a bit, it's worth saying that we've missed the whole point on Mizz Sandra Fluke. Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who testified against the religious right of her school to refuse to pay for contraception because to do so would violate its religious principles. It's titillating -- but irrelevant -- to speculate about Fluke's sexually promiscuity. To try to characterize her as Rush Limbaugh did could be accurate but isn't connected to the political issue at hand. Sandra Fluke is a welfare queen. Remember, back in...

He went on: "Whether it's Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated."

    Mark your calendars, gentlemen.  An incipient national sexless nightmare is nearly upon us:   The women’s group “Liberal Ladies Who Lunch” is putting together an unusual event, which it is calling “Access Denied: Sex Strike.”  The event, which is scheduled to take place between April 28 and May 5, features a poster saying “If our reproductive choices are denied, so are yours.” What has these elegant ladies in such a tizzy, you ask?  Their "rights" are under assault, or something:   Younger men and women may not remember the "good old days" when the only reproductive choice we had was...

    The Alabama Democratic Party has now scrubbed a web page advertising its upcoming fundraiser with HBO’s Bill Maher following an uproar from conservatives about the event because of the comedian’s history of making sexist statements about women. The web address — http://aldemocrats.org/bill-maher — once took visitors to an invitation to the Maher reception in Huntsville on March 17. Now it redirects to the homepage of the Alabama Democratic Party. Bradley Davidson, the executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, has not returned multiple requests for comment from TheDC about the reception. The scrubbing was first reported by the Alabama blog...

    Schumer Defends Maher Because He's 'On at 11:00 at Night' MAR 11, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPERS ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked New York senator Chuck Schumer this morning whether Democrats should return Bill Maher's money. Schumer responded by saying "no," because "Bill Maher is a comedian who is on at 11:00 at night but has very little influence on what’s happening here." Maher, who recently pledged $1 million to President Obama's super PAC, is under fire for misogynistic comments directed toward Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, after Democrats targeted Rush Limbaugh for his own unsavory remarks.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer says President Obama’s super PAC doesn’t need to give back the $1 million it got from comedian Bill Maher — even if he’s made crude comments about women. * * * “I mean, look, the bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty and directed at a particular young woman who had a particular point of view and was expressing herself. Bill Maher is a comedian. It’s much different. Rush Limbaugh has tremendous weight in the Republican Party. No one will rebut him. Bill Maher’s a comedian who's on at 11 o’clock at night but...
