I was hosting on talk radio the other day, sitting in for Mark Sutcliffe on 580 CFRA in Ottawa when a story on the state broadcaster caught my eye. CBC was going to their Washington bureau not to talk about President Obama’s weird apology over the Koran burning or the super high price of gas in the US but to discuss Rush Limbaugh.
As you have clearly heard by now Rush Limbaugh called a woman who wants the government to force others to pay for her contraception a slut. Bad choice of words? Sure. Has he apologized? Yes. Is the story over now, no.
But I said on air that CBC was only doing the story because it made a conservative look bad, that was their reasoning. Kristen Powers has a similar line of thinking on why the American media is all upset over this why giving lefties in the US a pass – it’s okay for liberal men to be misogynists. Ted Kennedy anyone?
Here is Powers on Fox News with Megyn Kelly, or read her column at The Daily Beast. Did I mention Kristen is a liberal and a Democrat?
