Diane Rehm On Rush Limbaugh–Must See Video

On the Friday News Roundup Diane Rehm responded to a listener’s tweet about Rush Limbaugh’s insults directed toward Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. “I think what he did with Sandra Fluke is disgusting. I think he gave a weak apology. I think he ought to be repudiated by every single candidate out there, and I think his apology was pure cowardice,” she said. See the video for her full comments, which also address the other major problem with Limbaugh–the manner in which he spreads misinformation:

This was such a welcome change from the manner in which the mainstream media often treats far right wing sources as being equivalent in validity to liberal sources.

Update: Here’s a transcript of the segment in the video:

All right. And there’s a tweet from Lawrence who says, “Diane, please explain your comment two weeks ago that you listen to Rush Limbaugh. Why do you, and why do you now repudiate him? If not, why not?” I listen to Rush Limbaugh because as a person behind the microphone every single day, I want to hear how Rush reflects on what’s happening in this world. I’ve heard him take a single fact and turn it a quarter of a degree and create a brand new fact. I think what he did with Sandra Fluke is disgusting.

I think he gave a weak apology. I think he ought to be repudiated by every single candidate out there, and I think his apology was pure cowardice. That’s my reaction. Thanks to all of you for being here. Thanks for listening. I’m Diane Rehm.
