Double Standards? Nahhhh canna be!

I came across this article from a lefty source on facebook:

And I chuckled a little because it was preceded by these two articles in posts:
Limbaugh has been singled out and condemned across the national media – ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, NPR, PBS, Associated Press, The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and USA Today.

How many of these outlets have condemned Bill Maher with equal vigor for his attacks on Palin?
Rush Limbaugh was broadsided last week for attacking a star witness for the Democrats who demanded government force insurers to subsidize contraceptives. He called 30-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.”
Let’s all agree Limbaugh crossed a line. 
He agrees. He posted an apology to Fluke “for the insulting word choices.” 
The scandal-ette should be over. 
So why are the Left and the media still pushing and publicizing a campaign for advertisers to dump the Limbaugh show and end his career?

And this one a few posts down:

Rush Limbaugh’s Apology Not Accepted By Liberals: Is There a Double Standard?

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh apologized this weekend for offensive comments he made about Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown law student who testified in front of Congress about contraception coverage. Columnist for The Daily Beast and Democratic political analyst, Kirsten Powers, thinks that there is a double standard when it comes to liberals versus conservatives. More HERE.
Is there a double standard? Yes. At least one. Of course, the double standard displayed by the right actually makes sense.
