Fluke appeared on ABC's The View today to discuss Rush Limbaugh's so-called apology on the weekend. Unsurprisingly, she was less than impressed by Limbaugh's sincerity, or lack thereof.

SANDRA FLUKE: "I don't think that a statement like this, issued saying that his choice of words was not the best, changes anything. Especially when that statement is issued when he's under significant pressure from his sponsors, who have begun to pull support from his show,"

Limbaugh's apology has been widely panned since it appeared on his website. He was less contrite on today's show, even with word today that an 8th major advertiser (AOL) had left the show.

Edit: Sears and Bonobos, a men's clothing outfitter, have now dropped Limbaugh as well, bringing the number to 11. KPUA , a talk radio station in Hawaii has also dropped the show from its schedule.
