Limbaugh says the Fluke controversy was "orchestrated." Ed Schultz talks with Rep. Terri Sewell, D-AL, and syndicated columnist Connie Schultz about Limbaugh's comments and the GOP's record with female voters (Mar. 13, 2012).
Rush Limbaugh's opponents are starting a radio campaign against him, seizing upon the conservative radio host's attack of the Georgetown law student as a "slut" to make a long-term effort aimed at weakening his business.
The ads use Limbaugh's own words about student Sandra Fluke, who told congressional Democrats that contraception should be paid for in health plans provided by private insurers.
Limbaugh, on his radio programs, suggested Fluke wanted to be paid to have sex, which made her a "slut" and a"prostitute." In return for the money, he said Fluke should post videos of herself having sex.
Media Matters claims that 59 companies have specifically asked that their ads be excluded from Limbaugh's show.
