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 Obamas 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,...

He was dropped from two very small stations smackdab in thee middle of progressive sewage. Do I care? Heck no. Can Rush make up for these petty little sh!ts? Heck yeah. If they have a contract, even if they DON’T air his show, they still have to pay him, or he has ALREADY been paid for it. He wins. They lose. And they will keep on losing.
Besides that, he might lose their paltry few listeners and gain thousands or maybe even millions more. NEVER believe the left when they are shreiking at the tops of their lungs.
Speak softly and carry a big stick. Rush has a BIG stick. US.
Now we know what it was like to be under Nazi Germany and how the denizens DID know and did nothing or blamed the jews...
Interesting how McCain is not attacking the obvious homosexual sexual harassment by government contraception welfare mandate.
I did not know McCain was so blind, hypocritical or cowardly to attack those calling government sponsored and paid homosexual rapists like Fluke sluts.
Isnt it like accusing a child victim of a pedophile rape a heinous kid for calling the perp a slut?
facebook also dropped their ads on Rush. UNLIKE facebook about a gazillion times.
If Sarah Palin and other popular conservatives pulled off facebook and said exactly why, she and they still have Twitter and their own websites to get their message out.
And the opposite is ALSO true. Put up MORE conservative sites and unlike facebook a few more gazillion times. Don’t buy their stock. Shame zucki.
Rush has loyal listeners and just because these stations drop him means they'll lose that audience while someone else will gladly carry Rush and jump up in both the ratings numbers and commercial sales dollars.
You win a few... lose a few... and some get rained out.
2 radio stations, out of 500+? BFD!!!
If I was a station owner in those markets, I’d be jumping on the opportunity to build a conservative talk format around the nations #1 talk radio program. These station managers are spineless wimps. This will end up costing them much more in the long run...
Love it! My rentals in LA always have ‘mariachi’ music programmed in
I was shocked to read that stations dropped Rush. When I read it was Hawaii and Massachusetts, I wasn’t surprised. In fact, I laughed.It was too obvious.
Radio stations do not have to air all of the content they purchase.
They are free to substitute either other purchased content or local content.
Rush is obligated to provide them with content they are not obligatged to air it.
The question I have is, why should I have to pay for her screwing around? Could very well be that she has chosen the wrong profession and should consider getting paid for what she enjoys doing? In turn this would help to defray her expenses.
I do believe that Rush was right on target as he usually is by calling a spade a spade. Should all else fail she always could consider requesting from her Beau to use condoms what could reduce her expenses considerably. Times certainly have changed as I would have been embarrassed to death to testify and advertise my behavior at a congressional hearing and for the whole world to know that I have a hard time keeping my legs closed.
It certainly comes as no surprise to me that a liberal/socialist would come to her defense and condone her behavior along with her request for some one else to shoulder the expenses for her recreation. At the same time attacking some one who properly identified her behavior by comparing it to an age old profession.In closing I would like to state that I am certainly not a beacon of morality, but I do profess still having a few ounces of common sense at my disposal apparently more than some of the advertisers on Rushs show.
This is is my take Saintgermaine
Hawaii and Massachusetts, not surprised
The Leftist haters think they have won but it's just the last laugh game playing out.
That last sentence is a perfect description of the lapdog media that infests the airwaves.
ROTFLMAO! To quote Chris Rock; "N*****, please..."
I think I saw that guy on TV a couple days ago. The lava guy, that is.
I thought it was over 600 stations? If I'm right he's lost 0.003 percent of his stations? If you're correct, he's lost 0.004%. Big woop. Go lefties! Celebrate your "victory." LOL
You got that right.....Watch another station in that are pick him up. Years ago, here in the Detroit area, station 1200 a.m. dropped him and switched to a sports format. Before the paperwork even hit the floor Rush was picked up by WJR......
WJR, by the way, is the #1 a.m. station in all of S.E. Michigan. From early morning till 5:00 pm. they're all conservative talk radio. At 5, Mitch Albom, who's a libtard, comes on and that's when I turn the radio off......
Don't worry. Try reading this (shameless plug):
Hilo, Hawaii and Pittsfield, Massachusetts?
Was anybody listening in those Leftist bastions anyway???
These two tiny stations will be surprised when one of their competitors immediately signs up Rush’s program. Dropping Rush’s show is a stupid business move.
