Rush Limbaugh dropped from radio stations after 'slut' comments cause controversy

Two radio stations have dropped The Rush Limbaugh Show from their schedules following the firestorm surrounding his offensive attack on law student Sandra Fluke on his show last week.

KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan.

Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the show,...

You know what I find weird about this whole situation is the first day Rush talked about it then he talked about it
the next day and just wouldn't let this Fluke stuff go. I wonder what got him so wound up by her staged conference.
The 2nd day when I turned on the radio and he was going on about it I thought not again I was bored with it. It is as if he got emails or something from people provoking a fight.

I think Seminar callers to Rush are a thing of the past. Maybe, as you say, he got tricked or encouraged by Seminar emailers.

Oh is that the home owned by a man? I saw a show on the weather channel of all places about the different climates in Hawaii and they had a man who was the only resident left from his subdivision because all the other homes had been taken over by the lava.

It might just be due to his hearing loss. He seems to take a lot fewer callers than he used to, therefore fewer “seminar” callers.

Rush will do fine. No doubt in my mind about that. He can even choose to go to satellite if it gets too nasty on the American airwaves. But we and the Constitution will be the losers in this.

Did you ever believe you’d see this happening? Never thought I’d live to see the day when America was overtaken by radicals with the blessing of many U.S. citizens (both dead and alive).

Time to say prayers and then sleep on it.

In Hawaii you can bet it was on orders from Dictator 0bama. Where’s his ORIGINAL birth records, anyway? Is that too much to ask? FUBO.

It’s like a horror flick and we the conservatives get picked off one by one.

Twitter. They’re saying to leave him messages. (this is the owner of Clear Channel, John Hogan).

I left him a message alright! :)

Dear Chris [ Gen. Mgr - KPUA ]
I work for a major rent a car company here on the Big Island
For years I have been programming your station into each and every rental car I get in during the course of my work day .I have programmed literally 10’s of 1000’s of such rental cars

Effective immediately I will cease programming your station into any and all cars and I shall further re-visit the programming I have done and remove all pre-sets to your station .

Your discontinuance of Rush was a bad idea . It will have it’s own costs

Bye bye

That is what they would love for you to believe. Don’t. Not even for a second. It simply is not true unless we MAKE it true.

So are you saying he wasn't dropped from the radio stations or that it is not as bad as the media is portraying it to be.
It is difficult when the left wing media has the bullypuplit so to speak and it doesn't help that we have a dirty President that stoops to all time lows.

There you go! THAT’S the way to do it. Leave them alone and let the weeds grow up around them until they disappear completely.

Certainly, anyone has the opportunity to write to the sponsors who dropped him, but they are also on facebook.

I was on ProFlowers on facebook today. Interesting comments. More in favor of Rush than those who are not.
