Limbaugh: Apology to student was sincere

Radio host Rush Limbaugh says his apology to the Georgetown law student he called a "slut" was sincere but he also is joking that he got a busy signal when he called his show to join advertisers who are abandoning it.

Student Sandra Fluke said Monday that Limbaugh's apology changes nothing and that Americans have to decide whether to support companies that continue to advertise on his program. Fluke told ABC's "The View" that she hasn't heard from Limbaugh since he issued a written apology late Saturday.

But Fluke says his comments about her testimony before members of Congress have been so personal, she'd rather not have him call. Fluke testified to Democratic members of Congress in support of a requirement that health care companies provide coverage for contraception.
