NPR – On Point with Tom Ashbrook, WBUR Boston

By Nancy L. Cohen, March 8, 2012

“Historian Nancy L. Cohen says Rush Limbaugh is just the tip of the iceberg. Rush Limbaugh’s nationally-broadcast attack on a young female law student as a “slut” and a “prostitute” who should post videos of her sex life online has lit up the social media world and millions of conversations in the last week.  Dozens of advertisers have pulled their commercials from Limbaugh’s show. He says he’s not worried. That it’s like losing “a couple of French fries” at the drive-thru.  My guest today says there’s a bigger story here.  A deep pushback against cultural change and the advancing rights of women. This hour, On Point:  a cry of sexual “counter-revolution.” — Tom Ashbrook
