Why do you lie about Sandra Fluke?

 She never said what you started your piece with.  Her testimony was about medically necessary use of "contraceptives".  Rush only apologized for using 2 words.  You start with lies how can anything that follows be considered truthful?

Shameful "reporting".

 

James Fulford writes: Since the reader didn’t specify what we “lied” about, I’ll quote myself:

“When Democratic activist Sandra Fluke testified that she wanted Georgetown, a Catholic University, to be compelled by federal law to pay her three thousand dollars for contraceptives—she meant the Pill, which means she’s asking her university to pay for her to able to have unprotected sex—Limbaugh called her a ‘slut.’

Here’s what Fluke said:

“Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary. Forty percent of female students at Georgetown Law report struggling financially as a result of this policy.” [Quoted in Sandra Fluke's Amazing Testimony, By Ira Stoll, WSJ, March 9, 2012]
