Rush Limbaugh’s apology to law student Sandra Fluke is far more than most conservative women have received when they have been attacked by people on the left, conservative commentator S.E. Cupp tells Newsmax.TV.

“While no one should excuse what Rush Limbaugh said, the apology is sufficient,” Cupp said.

Limbaugh landed in hot water last week when he called the 30-year-old Georgetown student a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his radio show after she had testified before a congressional panel about why she believes that health insurance should cover contraceptives.

Limbaugh also said that, if the government was paying her to have sex, the public should have a right to see where their money was going and therefore she should post sex tapes on the Internet.

The radio host apologized to Fluke over the weekend. “My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices," Limbaugh said.

But Cupp told Newsmax in the exclusive interview that she herself had been “the subject of a lot of misogyny.” Left-wing TV host Keith Olbermann once said she is “a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does.”

Story continues below the video.




Cupp, a Newsmax contributor, also mentioned other conservative women who hadn’t received full apologies, saying, “Just ask Sarah Palin, Laura Ingraham, Bristol Palin, Carrie Prejean.”

MSNBC host Ed Schultz called Ingraham a “slut” on his radio show, although he later apologized on his TV show; the Palins have been accused of covering up the real parenthood of Sarah’s son Trigg in a campaign led by liberal blogger Andrew Sullivan; and Miss USA runner-up Prejean was attacked mercilessly by a gay gossip blogger Perez Hilton, a judge in the 2009 pageant, after she answered his question by saying she believed marriage should be between a man and a woman.
