Sandra Fluke Dismisses Limbaugh's Apology on 'The View

News

"I'd rather not have a personal phone call from him."

Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke found yet another platform to appeal to American women this morning when she appeared on ABC's "The View." Based on her statements, though, she isn't ready to settle the score with radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh anytime soon.

The chaos surrounding Limbaugh's comments about Fluke has been relentless since the radio host first called her a "slut" and a "prostitute" last week. Despite critics dismissing his apology, Rush maintained earlier today on his show that his "I'm sorries" were sincere after claiming that he had mistakenly stooped to the left's level.

Fluke, though, wasn't swayed by Limbaugh's words, as she maintained that his admission changes nothing and that Americans have to decide whether to support companies that continue to advertise on his program.

The young woman told ABC's "The View" that she hasn't heard from Limbaugh since he issued a written apology late Saturday, though she isn't interested in receiving a call from him.

"I was at first shocked and stunned," she told host Barbara Walters when asked what she thought after hearing Limbaugh's comments. "Let me be clear that I think his statements that he made on the air about me have been personal enough, so I'd rather not have a personal phone call from him."

Fluke went on to question the apology statement, mentioning that Limbaugh issued it at a time during which advertisers were putting a great deal of pressure on him. In the end, she said that it doesn't change anything.

She went on to say that there's "a segment of our political commentators who think that it's acceptable in today's society to say these things about women."
