Point/counterpoint: Limbaugh 'slut' scandal - Leniency = misogyny?

(03/11/12 11:23pm)

A few years ago, radio personality Don Imus lit a firestorm of controversy after making several derogatory statements about the Rutger’s Women’s Basketball team – calling them, “nappy-headed hoes.” Soon after the backlash, sponsors pulled their backing, and Imus was fired. History, as the cliché goes, has a way of repeating itself.

By the time you read this, the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy will be 13 days old. That’s 13 days too long.

Nothing is more interesting than listening to two people discuss the multiplicity of conundrums facing international politics today. Whether it is Iran’s intransigence regarding its testing of nuclear power or the explosive turmoil continually ravaging much of Africa, we inevitably find ourselves reflecting on the role of the United States in relation to the rest of the world.

Perhaps its most famous move is the backing of the humorous and some would say provocative, “I Love Boobies” bracelets.
