Advertisers Pull Ads From Unrepentant Rush Limbaugh
All Access Music Group ^ | Saturday, March 3, 2012 | Unknown

Posted on 03/03/2012 11:34:22 AM PST by DestroyLiberalism

By the time the clock was about to hit midnight on FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd, a half-dozen advertisers had used TWITTER to notify their clientele that they had pulled their advertising from RUSH LIMBAUGH's syndicated program.

CALIFORNIA mattress store chain SLEEP TRAIN was the first to announce via TWITTER that it has pulled its ads from LIMBAUGH's syndicated PREMIERE NETWORKS show after the host referred to a college student testifying about contraceptive availability as a "slut," then demanded that women on the pill provide sex videos since the government mandates insurance pays for the pill -- comments LIMBAUGH asserted were made as a form of absurd humor.

The chain, which operates in the SACRAMENTO, SAN FRANCISCO, SAN DIEGO, CENTRAL VALLEY and INLAND EMPIRE markets, tweeted, "We don't condone negative comments directed toward any group. In response, we are currently pulling our ads from RUSH with RUSH LIMBAUGH (sic)."

National advertiser SELECT COMFORT, which advertises its SLEEP NUMBER mattresses on the show, also pulled its ads from the show, tweeting, "Recent comments by RUSH LIMBAUGH do not align w/our values, so we made decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program." Neither company's tweets indicate for how long the suspension of ads will last.

Later in the day, QUICKEN LOANS sent out the following Tweet: Due to continued inflammatory comments -- along w/valuable feedback from clients & team members -- QL has suspended ads on RUSH LIMBAUGH program."

Apparently, LIMBAUGH only fueled the controversy over his comments about activist law student SANDRA FLUKE and her attempts to testify before Congress in favor of government-funded contraception, saying on FRIDAY, "when the left wants to pretend they have no sense of humor, they are excellent at it. Yesterday in the riff about it, 'Okay, okay, fine. If we're gonna pay for this, at least let us have something for it. How about some sex videos?' If anybody doesn't realize that we are illustrating absurdity here by being absurd and that that is the trademark of this program ... But oh, no! 'Oh, of everything else you've said, that's the lowest of the low. Demanding sex video? Who do you think you are?' Lighten up. I remember using that phrase all the way back in 1989: Lighten up."

He later added, "now, at the end of this week, I am the person that the women of AMERICA are to fear the most. What can I do to the women of AMERICA? Do I have the power to raise their taxes? I do not. Do I have the power to regulate their behavior? I do not. Do I have the power to make health care decisions for them? I do not. Do I have the power to withhold birth control pills from them? I do not. Do I have the power to audit their tax returns? I do not. Do I have the power to take their little four-year-old kindergarten student's lunch and throw it away and make 'em eat something else? I do not. Do I have the power to look into their personal life and leak the information to the media? I do not. Is there one bit of freedom that I can deny them? Can I raise their taxes? They want to blame me as being the person they should fear, when in fact the people doing all these things I just said I have no power to do, the DEMOCRAT PARTY (sic) is doing."

Once The Dominoes Start Falling....

LIMBAUGH'S rant certainly didn't quell the furor, as LEGALZOOM then tweeted that it "has suspended all advertising on the RUSH LIMBAUGH show."

Next to be heard was CITRIX, which went on FACEBOOK to announce, "We have listened to our customers & have decided to cease our advertising on The RUSH LIMBAUGH Show immediately."

But that may not be all, as PRO FLOWERS tweeted to its followers: "Rest assured, your feedback is heard. We heard about the comments and we will reevaluate our marketing plan."

What's more, CARBONITE CEO DAVID FRIEND posted this open letter to his customers:

Over the past two days we have received a tremendous amount of feedback on RUSH LIMBAUGH’s recent comments. I too am offended and very concerned about his comments. LIMBAUGH’s remarks have us rethinking our future use of Talk radio.

We use more than 40 Talk show hosts to help get the CARBONITE message out to the public. The nature of Talk radio is that from time to time, listeners are offended by a host and ask that we pull our advertising. This goes for conservatives like LIMBAUGH and progressives like STEPHANIE MILLER and ED SHULTZ. We even get customers who demand that we pull the plug on NPR. As an advertiser, we do not have control over a show’s editorial content or what they say on air. CARBONITE does not endorse the opinions of the shows or their hosts.

However, the outcry over LIMBAUGH is the worst we’ve ever seen. I have scheduled a face-to-face meeting next week with LIMBAUGH during which I will impress upon him that his comments were offensive to many of our customers and employees alike.

Please know your voice has been heard and that we are taking this matter very seriously.

Oh brother, here we go with the bullcrap.

Lessee - SELECT COMFORT, QUICKEN LOANS, CITRIX, CARBONITE, PRO FLOWERS, LEGAL ZOOM, SLEEP TRAIN - are now on my Personal S***-List for ABJECT STUPIDITY & BLATANT IGNORANCE!

Rush: keep turning-it-up on the commie-libs! $100 says not one lib supports any of those companies; it’s a nationally-coordinated campaign against you. But then you, of all people, know that fact all too well.

Just e-mailed AND called Carbonite. Told them that I was a customer (I am), but will look for a different support group if they pull their advertising from Rush’s program. Seems to me that the guy I spoke to on the phone, was not surprised, and he asked no questions.

"Been curious about that blueberry muffin flavored tea. Think I'll try some."

DO IT!!! Even the lefties at work LOVED it. They thought blueberry iced tea was strange, as we all did because it was never done before.

Even though some of them hate Rush, they LOVED his tea, especially the blueberry.

Did some research today and found LegalZoom co-founder LIU gave to Obama 2012 PAC
http://fundrace.huffingtonpost.com/neighbors.php?type=emp_or_occ&emp=LegalZoom.com%2C+Inc.

http://www.rocketlawyer.com/?utm_source=1000&utm_medium=blog&utm_campaign=le

“RocketLawyer” is a big competitor of LegalZoom and is now the fastest growing legal prep co on the net. Legal Zoom I also found announced a few days ago that it is preparing for an IPO. RocketLawyer has made LZ not as valuable as it once was. Rocket Lawyer runs their ads on FOXNews. I noticed Hannity uses them instead of LegalZoom.

Twitter supporters of Rush, many #breitbartsarmy are tweeting that Pro Flowers is staying, so the push is to order flowers in support of Rush !!

Nine companies remain on the list: Sears, ProFlowers, CARBONITE, Inc., Mid-West Life Insurance Company of Tennessee, American Forces Network, Mission Pharmacal Company, Life Quotes, Inc., Life Lock, Tax Resolution and AOL, parent company of The Huffington Post. (The site lists Lending Tree among the sponsors of the Limbaugh program, despite the company’s statements on Twitter that it is not affiliated with the show.)

I’ve been spending a fair bit of time on the Carbonite facebook page countering the raving lunatics.

I get a kick out of the ones threatening to dump Carbonite and go to Mozy,
I tell them to remember to put the promo code ‘Hannity’ in the check out box.

The advertisers need Rush Limbaugh more than they need to distance themselves. They will find out their business drops off when they cater to moochers and losers.

"These advertisers are nuts. With Rush’s audience?"

Rush should look into some small start up business's to deal with. He can try it out (as he does) and then perhaps promote small start up business's get a leg up!

Small business, as MOST of these companies were, grew large once Rush started advertising them, and giving them away. Small business IS the backbone of America. Let's make them HUGE.

Not only does Rush help small start up business's, but help jump start the economy....something barry SUCKS ON PURPOSE at.

I gave up watching Fox News (pretty much) some time ago, however just by chance I happened on Fox News Special Report on Friday evening.

A new regular from the NY Times went in to a rant about Rush comments, and it went unchallenged by anybody.

All taken out of context

Fox is just such a joke and disgrace now, I came to that conclusion quite some time ago.

When are Conservatives going to make a boycott stick against some lefties who ordinarily are much worse and these pansy companies? Just pick one and do unto them.

Rush really talked positive about the sleep number bed and they do this to him! How about a big screw you to them AND no business. Get another brand air bed if that is what you want.

Just noticed the Select Comfort Twitter feed is locked down unless you are a ‘follower’.

That just means you can't read their tweets unless they approve you as a follower. If you put @SleepNumberBeds in your tweet, they will get it.

Here's what I wrote to LegalZoom:
Dear people,

This business first popped up in George Stephanopolis's question to Mitt Romney in a debate about whether states could ban contraceptives. Everyone then wondered out of which orifice George had pulled that one and why he wasted 5 minutes of the debate on it since no one had been talking about such a thing anywhere at any time. It later turned out that it was already in the works as a campaign issue by Democrats running for reelection who sent out a fundraising letter claiming that Republicans in Congress were already meeting to ban contraception.

Obama then ordered religious organizations to provide contraception. When those and other organizations said, correctly, that he did not have Constitutional authority to mandate that they do this, a House committee was organized to discuss Obama's Constitutional overreaching. It was at that meeting that Eleanor Holmes Norton tried to get Sandra Fluke in to testify about contraception. She was told that the meeting was about Constitutional overreach, not contraception. EHN and another Congresswoman made a big scene for the cameras falsely claiming that there were only men, no women, testifying, though there were two women scheduled to testify in a later session. This also was used in Democrat campaign literature to push their meme about Republicans trying to eliminate contraception.

Finally, this group of Democrat politicians organized a meeting in Congress for Fluke to testify. Fluke is a long time activist who deliberately enrolled at Georgetown to fight its insurance policy regarding contraceptives. This all was a set up. You and others have fallen for it. Rush did not. He rightly called her to task for claiming that a third party should pay for her contraceptives in order that she and others could continue a sexually libertine lifestyle.

It should have been expected that you and other advertisers would get complaints by an extremely vocal minority which represents the tiniest fraction of a percent of Rush's listening audience, complaining about something they heard someone else say that he said. I heard what he actually said that day and the next and, given Ms Fluke's (and Nancy Pelosi's) political grandstanding, it was innocuous and an example of reductio ad absurdum ("illustrating absurdity by being absurd" as he has done for years) to illustrate her and the Left's position regarding both sex and contraception/prophylactics and their demand that they be accommodated in the matter by third parties on both ends.

You guys do yourself no favor capitulating to the vocal, extreme left for two reasons: 1. they hate you on principle as a private business, 2. Rush's listeners far outnumber them and represent a greater income stream both actual and potential for your company.

I am so angry at these advertisers because they are pulling their ads and I can’t even seem to find what Rush actually said! This all seems very strange to me.

These “movements” to boycott advertisers who drop shows rarely have the effect that boycotters think they have. I’m not saying that they never put a pinch on the companies are boycotted, but the unseen effect on companies who do not advertise with the show in question is tremendous.

It usually plays out something like this:

Marketing Meeting

Marketing guy, “JB, we’ve been offered a discount to advertise on the XYZ since several of their advertisers dropped them. It’s a huge market, and at this price I don’t think we can say no.”

JB, “I saw that on my desk yesterday, but let’s hold on a minute. These listeners/viewers/whatever are so militant that if we get on board, we can never leave. I think we need to stick with politically neutral venues we can get in and out of without creating ill will. Let’s stick with Clear Channels syndicated sports package. No one is ever boycotted for dropping a sports program.”

Marketing guy, “I didn’t think of it like that JB. Maybe you’re right.”

Don't worry, a pissant company like Sleep Train is starting to hear the opposite of what they thought at first.

They don't realize that they have stirred up the Mother of all Hornets Nests. They think they can force Rush to cower and shiver into caving in to their demands. When it is a guarantee that they will be begging Rush to give them another chance after this all settles.

They are about to regret every misguided step they have taken.
