Laura Ingraham Accepts Apology from Ed Schultz, Ends Right-Wing Slut Scandal

by at . Comments

On his MSNBC talk show Tuesday night, Ed Schultz referred to conservative commentator Laura Ingraham as a "right-wing slut."

The inappropriate barb got him suspended for a week and resulted in an apology 24 hours later, as Schultz admitted his word usage was "vile" and "uncalled for."

Today, Ingraham - who got into it with Meghan McCain in 2009 - put an end to the mini-scandal, accepting her rival's contrite words and saying on her radio program: "He apologized, and I accept his apology. It seemed heartfelt, it seemed like he really wished he hadn't said it, and I accept the apology... I wish him the best. I wish his family the best."
