Skip to comments.Investors flee Carbonite after Limbaugh announcement
Posted on 03/06/2012 3:13:32 PM PST by Nachum
On Saturday, Carbonite CEO David Friend released a statement on his companys website declaring that Carbonite had decided to withdraw advertising from Rush Limbaughs radio show in the wake of his controversial remarks involving Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke because it will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse:
Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.
However, it hasnt done much to contribute to his companys stock price. Since the market opened on Monday through its close today, Carbonite stock (NASDAQ:CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points.

I don’t usually call or write, but live in the country and the station that carrys it 2 hours later is small and I think I will call them and thank them...gg
Hey folks .... I sent an e-mail to my local radio station today to thank them for carrying the Rush show because I was certain they were coming under intense pressure. The message I got back was:
It hasnt been easy. The opposition is very organized...but thanks.
I guess I should not have been surprised . but I was. This is a strong Rush market and I did not expect the station to be coming under such pressure.
If you are so inclined, PLEASE contact your local Rush radio station and let them know that you support them for carrying Rush. If you have state ‘ping’ lists, let them know this is going on. Enlist the aid of your friends and relatives living in the area ... whatever resources you have to get the message to these beleaguered radio stations, use them!
If you want some interesting if not shocking reading on how organized these Leftists are, heres an article worth reading:
Its a few pages long, please read it all. We CANNOT let the Left win this war and make no mistake, it is a WAR.
We are living in the times described by George Orwell when he said In an era of universal deceit, the truth is a revolutionary act. I say: To cower in silence is no longer an option. I know the power of FReepers when they get together and ACT this is the time to DO something!!!
Thanks! I sent out a ping to all on this thread .... didn’t leave you out, either! FReeper power is ‘awesome’ .... we can make a difference!
Thanks I ill send an email to our station that carries Rush:)
I’m sure the station will appreciate it! Thanks!
True enough; but before everyone goes overboard with these sponsors, has anyone heard the radio programming before and after rush’s show today? IOW, are they all still advertising on Hannity, levin, etc.?
Actually, many women use their birth control pills as hormonal regulators. And if you’d check with your significant other, you’d find that the pill as birth control does not just magically work by taking it only on the nights one has sex. They have to take it daily for a while, which is why most women of all political stripes who take the pill take it continuously throughout the year; it doesn’t mean or imply anyone is having sex 365 days a year. Very different from what guys do. Viagra and male enhancement products seem to be offered on many health insurance programs’ plans though.
and? so you think someone should be forced to pay for other peoples birth control and religions organizations should be included in that.
women benefit from viagra too ya know
Doesn’t matter, they made public statements dropping Rush. They should suffer the results publically.
Sure will. Thanks for the update. BTW Carbonite stock down.
Payback for cowardice - they deserve it in spades!! Thanks for your help with the radio station(s).
I just told my wife to call Vitacost and tell them to pack sand up their butt...
Let's wait till we see how Rush's ex-advertisers do over a longer haul than just today.
I'll bet when the market goes up again, his rat sponsers will stay mired at their low pond-scum level.
I read it and got madder and sent off emails. Thanks for the link.
She’s probably a thespian and lying about the need for BC too.
Surprised the guy would even advertise on Rush's show.
Why not advertise on Rush? They are using our money to kill us with. Hollywood has been doing it for years.It also worked with the main stream media for years.
