Limbaugh used 'absurdist humor' in 'slut' comments, says syndicator

Media

Premiere Networks, syndicator of the "Rush Limbaugh Show," released a statement Monday defending Rush Limbaugh in light of comments he made last week in which he called Georgetown student Sandra Fluke a "slut."

From Ad Age:

"Premiere Networks is committed to providing its listeners with access to a broad range of opinion and commentary without condoning or agreeing with the opinions, comments or attempts at humor expressed by on-air talent," the statement said. "We respect the right of Mr. Limbaugh, as well as the rights of those who disagree with him, to express those opinions. The contraception debate is one that sparks strong emotion and opinions on both sides of the issue. Last week, in an attempt at absurdist humor to illustrate his political point, Mr. Limbaugh used words that unfortunately distracted from the message he was trying to convey. We believe he did the right thing on Saturday, and again this morning on his radio show, by expressing regret for his choice of words and offering his sincere and heartfelt apology to Ms. Fluke. "
