Female CNN anchor defends Schultz & 'mixed interpretations' of the word 'slut

*UNCATEGORIZED*

I feel bad for CNN's Randi Kaye.  She must have pretty low self-esteem to believe the word "slut" could mean anything other than what we all know it means.

Seriously -- how can any self-respecting woman defend such a term, let alone any man who uses it?

Newsbusters breaks down the jaw-dropping segment:

Attempting to offer a defense of Ed Schultz, CNN's Randi Kaye told guest Howard Kurtz Thursday that "there are mixed interpretations" of the term "slut," which Schultz called conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham Thursday. Kaye also referred to Laura Ingraham's response to Schultz as "biting," proving that she possibly was harder on Ingraham than on tyrant Sadaam Hussein back in 2006.

"Yeah, but you know when you hear the word 'slut' – I mean I hate to even say it on our air, to be honest with you – but there are mixed interpretations about the word," Kaye told Kurtz. The media critic didn't buy it for a second.

Slightly taken aback by Kaye's bizarre statement, Kurtz called the word "clearly a sexually-derogatory term," when used in the context Schultz did, and added that "he realizes what he did."

"I think [Schultz] was lucky to get away with just being off the air for one week," Kurtz remarked. "A lot of broadcasters might have lost their jobs by saying something so stupid, offensive, and misogynistic."

Kaye is apparently not the only woman who thinks this kind of hateful sentiment is okay -- the ladies of The View joked about calling each other sluts today as well.
