Notpology, Crowley style

On Thursday (wait, that was yesterday), Monica Crowley, another conservative blondeshell from the FOX "News" lineage said something that was inappropriate to some people.
To a man? "Sandra Fluke Announces Engagement"
This was of course about the same Sandra Fluke that Rush Limbaugh called a slut, and then notpologized for doing so. Turns out that Fluke had announced her engagement.

What was Crowley thinking?
I love exposing the Left's total lack of a sense of humor.
See, she was not doing it to insult anyone, just trying to illustrate that "The Left" has no sense of humor. Strange charge, considering that you are on FOX "News", and lack of humor is hardly the feather to attach to the tar you get to pour on. It is like pointing out that Hitler's handwriting was sometimes illegible.

Of course, some gnat decided to probe further. Wasn't Crowley insinuating that Fluke was gay? Isn't that what the insult really aimed for?

Nope, at least not according to Crowley. Or wait, was it?
"Insinuating" nothing. Straightforward question. No answer yet.
So it was not about the humor thingy, it was about the gay thingy.

Today, she apologized.
Regret my tweeted question caused a stir. I certainly & unequivocally apologize to Sandra & anyone else I offended. Not my intention.
Right.  Yesterday it was about showing how "The Left" had no sense of humor and then it was about the gay thingy.

Till her blondeness was not enough to mask her bigotry.

Don't they teach you in journalism school that you're supposed to be unbiased? It's kind of hilarious that the first thing that the FNC woman talks about is how "the left" is this or that. I thought they were still pretending to be "fair and balanced" there? Or at least that's the byline. It's like Panem in "The Hunger Games". Everyone knows what it is... you're just not supposed to say it or else you get murdered.
