MRC's Double Standard On The 'Slut' Insult
Topic: Media Research Center

When Ed Schultz called right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut," the Media Reserch Center threw a fit, complained that it wasn't reported enough, cheered his suspension for the remark, then complained that Schultz's apology wasn't all-encompassing enough.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a"slut" and a "prostitute" for testifying about the financial hardships of contraception.

The MRC's response so far? Silence.

But then, the MRC has always given Limbaugh a free pass for his behavior, no matter how offensive or how much it violated the MRC's previously established standards. There's no reason to think it will suddenly start holding Limbaugh accountable for his behavior now.

Plus, the MRC has endeavored to smear and slime Fluke for her testimony, so we can assume that silence equals approval.
