Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham took a little time out of her show today to respond to Ed Schultz‘s apology for having called her a crude name on the radio. As it turns out, Ingraham is handling this whole thing better than most people covering the story.
For one, she doesn’t see this situation as a big deal, particularly in light of other, more heart-wrenching news items, like the devastation in the Midwest. And, she admits, she has a fairly thick skin:
…The more vile the thing that is said about me, the less is affects me. It doesn’t bother me at all! I heard about it yesterday during the show; I thought so little about it, I didn’t even mention it yesterday. I heard it before the show started, someone had emailed the website about it. And Ed Schultz said something on a show about me that was not all that nice, to say the least, it was pretty crude. And he apologized and I accept his apology.
Ingraham also notes that Schultz used to be a conservative (NEEDLE SCRATCH!) and urged this lost sheep to return to the flock. All in all, Ingraham gave a mature response, demonstrated a healthy outlook, and showed a good sense of humor about the whole incident.
