Skip to comments.A 7th Advertiser Pulls out of Limbaugh's Show [SCUM]
Posted on 03/05/2012 4:49:52 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
A flower company is the seventh advertiser to pull its ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh's radio program in reaction to his derogatory comments about a law student who testified about birth control policy.
ProFlowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh's program...

We need to get a list of these scum so we can boycott them.
Not surprised. I stand by Rush though.
I think I’ll be ordering a case of “Two if by Tea”
They shoot themselves in the foot, Rush has the most listened to radio show in the nation - these advertisers just lost a huge market.
Nope. This is the latest MSM moral outrage. Forget gas is heading to 5 bucks, Obmama’s power grabs...etc, this is an outrage!!! ;/
Today’s show could be like the super bowl of talk radio. Some will be tuning in for the advertisements. This seems like an opportunity for some small upstart company to get some exposure.
The only thing that surprises me is that Rush ever thought an apology would change anything.
Now he has the worst of both worlds. Looking like a sap for backing down and apologizing along with losing advertisers. He was way better off before he threw in the towel and apologized for stating a fact. JMHO
Great idea! In the meantime, we can give each of them a thumbs down on Facebook and post a boycott comment. Anyone have the list?
What gets me is that the segment of the population that these advertisers are pandering to will most likely not, or have not done business with them anyways.
I really can’t see some fanatic liberal buying flowers for anyone.
ProFlowers? Are those the ones Sean Hannity talks about?
I’ve already notified Carbonite that I won’t be renewing.
Yesterday I placed an order. I fear for Rush & pray this doesn’t do him in.
I just canceled an order with ProFlowers and left a very nasty letter explaining why I canceled. They’ll never get my business again.
This is kind of like cutting off your nose to spite your face! Any company who pulls their ads has to know their income will drop. They’ll be back after they’re done pandering to the complainers.
Rush put most, if not all, of the companies that are storming out on him now (without even waiting for Rush to explain himself) into their current advantageous business positions. They have to know that walking out is very, very Pyrrhic. Now that they have, will they get the Slut business that they had missed in the past? (Ha)
Competing businesses in the same lines are probably busy right now writing advertising proposals to Rush.
“I stand by Rush though.”
(I sure hope he’s not on the way out.)
Dems and the MSM set the usual trap and the Republicans run
right into it again!
I would bet that these companies that are fleeing the Limbaugh show are only going to harm themselves in the long run since a majority of their clients come from his show.
I guess only time will tell how powerful Limbaugh’s show and his listeners are.
Levin and Hannity should drop the advertisers who dropped Rush.
Rush has jumped the shark.
We hear about the dropped sponsors. I’d be willing to bet that twice as many are asking Rush to let them advertise on his show but of course Lame Street Media won’t report that. Can’t wait to listen today.
Now there’s space on the show. Other advertisers will come aboard.
I like that!
Using the slut Fluke to try to secure un-informed women's votes, black votes, illegals' votes, etc. will be the goal, and it will work because the State-Run-Media will promote The Agenda.
You have heard NOTHING (like the Fraud investigation findings of Joe Arpaio) on the State-Run-Media.
Just like the Friday Document Dumps, the Progressives are controlling the dialog, deflecting from the Reality of the destruction of America.
That's not a "Conspiracy Theory"; that's a FACT.
I also hope that if any of them come back in a few months begging to advertise after watching sales and net income fall, Rush tells them to go pound sand.
I hope every Sleep Number customer within their 90 day free trial period returns the damned bed. ESPN Radio is advertising a cheaper knock off of that bed now anyway.
I am going to try and get money back from Valentine’s Pro Flowers order. Don’t they have a guarantee too? I’m going to find out.
I actually had a local florist do up a bouquet of long-stemmed roses for my lady on Valentine’s Day. I’d forgotten to get on ProFlowers to order, but they were able to fill my order with less than 24-hours notice. The bouquet was absolutely gorgeous, which is a lot more than I can say about ProFlowers somewhat impersonal box and need to organize the bouquet oneself.
I think that was a blessing in disguise.

Good that Pro Flowers is gone. I find that they engage in false advertising and bait and switch, and I have been engaged in my own personal boycott of them for the last 5 years. You all are welcome to join me.
He would have fared better if he had stood his ground. This way, he's betrayed his enemies and his friends.
But these advertisers need to know that it's not only the Left that can bring pressure. Under no circumstance should anyone who supports the accuracy of Limbaugh's statements give these cowards one red cent of their money.
“Dems and the MSM set the usual trap and the Republicans run right into it again!”
Apparently, they can’t help themselves.
Why is the bait so enticing that they walk right into it every time?
Big mistake! Sandra Fluke is a 30 year old activist who testified before a hearing set up by Nancy Pelosi in regards to the HHS mandate which would force religious institutes to provide access to insurance carriers that provided coverage of contraceptives and sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.
Pelosi's goal for the hearing was to distract from Obama's direct attack against religious freedom with his HHS abortion mandate. Not only didnt she get caught without contraception at Georgetown, but specifically knew the university didnt cover it and chose to attend for precisely that reason. Rush called her on it!
I'm disappointed with Rush for apologizing. He's not making more of a profit margin on the tea than from his advertisers?
It was not totally clear that the (self appointed?) spokeswoman Fluke was living like an alley cat. She might be if she’s on the Pill all the time, but my guess is that in order to be let into the limelight she has no documented personal sex scandal and is doing it just in case “Mr. Right” comes along and they can’t wait. (That would be a lousy boyfriend by any sane light.) And the Pill isn’t that horribly expensive. A few years ago at least, $40 would have sufficed to get a year’s worth in 90 day batches from Wal-Mart, plus whatever she paid the doctor to write the Rx (which might be minimal if this is a campus medical service). So is she personally a “slut” in the original sense — that might be a premature conclusion.

So now that they have angered 20 million listeners who are they planning on selling their products to?
When will Vermont Teddy Bear join the list? That’s the most idiotic gift for an adult.
What Rush said is so, so vanilla and even boring compared to how Rats carry on all the time. Everyone knows it.
Exactly! Gas is heading for $5/gal and the media is yapping about subsidizing sex.
a quick search on bing.com for online flowers, include the following:
and several others, so there’s definitely alternatives out there.
So what happened to the vicious Ed Schultz for calling Laura Ingraham a slut?
Who are you going with? My subscription is up in 28 days and I’m not renewing. Got any recommendations?
We knbow what she is and now we know her prices.
She announced to the world she intends to have a lot of sex
so she’s the one who announced what she is.
Is this a precurser to becoming a lawyer..
If Pro Flowers has been engaging in criminal acts for the last five years, why did Rush tolerate them.
I wondered if they were one of the companies. What do we do in place of them?
I’ve had to have my backups restored twice - the first time without much of a hitch and just two weeks ago, a real nightmare. My docs (Excel and Word) were in pictures - pictures were all over the place. They had to take remote access of my computer to sort out Windows Live Mail and it took 4 people to accomplish it properly.
Is there another choice out there for offsite backups?
The Dems see this as an opportunity to destroy Rush. The drumbeat will continue aided by the MSM. It will get worse.
