(Newser) – It's not only advertisers who are unimpressed with Rush Limbaugh's apology. The Georgetown law student Limbaugh derided as a "slut" said today that his public apology meant little to her, ABC News reports. "I don't think that a statement like this issued, saying that his choice of words was not the best, changes anything, and especially when that statement is issued when he's under significant pressure from his sponsors who have begun to pull their support," Sandra Fluke said on a visit to The View. (See the video.)

Fluke added that she hasn't heard from the radio shock jock—and hopes he never calls. "The statements he's made about me over the air are personal enough, so I'd rather not have a personal phone call with him," she said. In his first show since advertisers began dropping him, Limbaugh said today that his "apology to her over the weekend was sincere. It was simply for using inappropriate words in a way I never do." Limbaugh had insulted Fluke for testifying to Congress that her school's health insurance plan should cover female contraception.
