Ed Schultz Says Don’t Compare His Apology to Rush Limbaugh’s

On his show last night, Ed Schultz says there is just no comparison between his apology — and its aftermath — after he called Laura Ingraham a “right-wing slut” on his radio show last May, and Rush Limbaugh‘s apology to Sandra Fluke this past weekend.

“When I made an inappropriate comment last year on my radio show, I took it to a much higher platform. I went to management here at MSNBC and I said ‘I’ve made a mistake, I need to take myself off the air without pay.’ And we moved on. I did restitution. I was off the air for a week,” said Schultz.

Schultz, who was one of the first to reveal Fluke’s story when he interviewed her on his MSNBC show on Feb. 16, adds: “Drawing a moral equivalence between me and Rush is not only inaccurate but it diminishes the outrageous nature of Limbaugh’s prolonged attack on Sandra Fluke.”
