Laura Ingraham Describes Ted Nugent's Threat To F**k Female CBS Producer As 'Winning'

up

Laura Ingraham apparently didn't think there was anything wrong with Ted Nugent's appearance on CBS this week where he was so upset with reporter Jeff Glor for daring to suggest that Nugent might not help Mitt Romney attract "moderate" voters, that he flew into a profanity laced tirade, telling Glor that he'd suck his "f**king d*ck" or f**k an off camera female CBS producer as well.

From Media Matters: Fox's Laura Ingraham On Ted Nugent's Profanity-Laced Tirade: "Winning":

Ingraham highlighted Nugent's comments while guest-hosting for Bill O'Reilly's show, which includes the nightly "Pinheads & Patriots" segment.

After playing Nugent's comments, with the inflammatory parts beeped out, Ingraham stated: "Winning" -- a reference to a quote by actor Charlie Sheen. Vulture, the New York magazine blog, defined the term this way:

Winning

verb (frequently used)

1. the act of triumphing over studio executives, famous fathers, and jerky show-runners, who then have no choice but to "lay down with their ugly wives and their ugly children and just look at their loser lives"

Ingraham went on to say: "Well, Nugent apologized off camera and he said after the interview that he was rushed to the emergency room and had a kidney stone removed." She added: "You can decide if the rocker's a pinhead or a patriot for those remarks."

Media Matters has more on who The O'Reilly Factor has deemed worthy of the title "pinhead" which Ingraham refused to use for Nugent, and who else they've given a pass to.
