When I Was Called 'Slut' Barbara Walters 'Just Laughed': Laura Ingraham Slams 'The View' on Double Standard

Media

Joy Behar and the entire audience just laughed it off too.

In the aftermath of Sandra Fluke's cries victimhood as aired on many of the major networks, some female conservative commentators who've suffered similar treatment are crying foul. The most vocal so far has been Laura Ingraham, who recently went on Fox and Friends to blast the female co-hosts of "The View" for their newly discovered concern over the usage of the word "slut."

"When it was brought up on The View — I go on there every now and then and they’re always really nice to me when I go — when it was brought up on The View, Barbara Walters kind of laughed it off, like, ‘Joy, you call me that word all the time,’ and they just laughed," Ingraham said. "But when Fluke goes on yesterday, it’s ‘Oh, isn’t this a tragedy?’ and ‘Oh isn’t this horrible? Rush Limbaugh should be driven off the air.’”

Ingraham's argument isn't far from the truth -- not only did the hosts of The View laugh at the usage of the word when it was applied to Ingraham, but the entire audience laughed it off. Watch the video and see for yourself:
