On Monday afternoon, America Live host Megyn Kelly spoke with Mark Stevens, the founder of the global marketing firm MSCO and an advertiser for Rush Limbaugh‘s radio program who says his company has been targeted by people who want to put him out of business for his connection to the outspoken conservative host. Earlier, Limbaugh had addressed the matter on his show, where he said that Stevens believes there is a coordinated attack on his business spearheaded by a group he wouldn’t name, but that Limbaugh was happy to — Media Matters.

This kind sounds like a real loser.

>>>“If I can’t advertise where I want to advertise,” he says, because of some “hissyfitters” using form emails, then something is very wrong.

So he wants the ‘right’ to advertise where he wants, but people shouldn’t have the ‘right’ to not do business with him and/or protest...get over yourself buddy, freedoms cut in both directions.

People have the right to do whatever they want, including exposing organized mass fake boycotts. That’s what this guy is doing.

Apparently you have a problem with that.

This guy is a hero. Media Matters is a criminal organization and it needs to be defunded asap. All their harrassment and terrorism is only going to encourage this guy to teach them a lesson. Before all is said and done, Media Matters will be learning nobody is going to put up with them in any capacity.

Media Matters is indeed a terrorist organization attacking free speech by manipulating the free market by boycotts of patriotic Americans.

You know, Rush was wrong to call the woman the name so he could Keep his Integrity to call out the others who do this. He made a big error of judgment to that end. He said that he was sorry. (It was a free speech issue as well) Move on, live with it-let his audience judge him/like him/support him/ not like him as in respect to a open society. Though, the crazy people have found a way like a cancer to get inside of Rush's advertisers slowly by slowly to hurt people's companies and hurting middle class families who depend on these companies to have a paycheck. These groups are as converging as some of these communists who hate free speech and our differences in ideas. Unfortunately, they will not stop. They are committed to wreck our society because this kind of stuff is their lives to where as we all work and live or try to live productive lives. Imo. (Best wishes to these companies who are being unfairly targeted I hope Rush helps those who have been faithful to his success & likewise)

Rush Limbaugh Advertiser Exodus Continues With Kohler Pulling Content

On Monday, Kohler responded to pressure from customers who wanted to know if the company advertised on Limbaugh’s program. Kohler tweeted that the company does not support Limbaugh’s comments and pulled its advertisements from his show.

Kohler joins in a long list of advertisers who have distanced themselves from the conservative talk radio host, including AOL, parent company of The Huffington Post. Last week, liberal media watchdog Media Matters launched an advertising campaign targeting Limbaugh and the radio stations that still carry his program. The group said that it plans to spend $100,000 on anti-Rush Limbaugh advertising.

Fidelity investments sent a 500K donation to MM last year. I pulled my accounts from them and when asked told them why.

I agree, except I don’t know how you defund a private organization.

You’re not saying they receive public funding, are you?

If these rich guys like Rush and his advertisers had a brain, they would create a group that goes after the left ala Media Matters. They play the victim instead of beating these lefties like a dirty rug.

I remember hearing some such thing. I believe she bragged about it to some left-wing gathering of bloggers or something.
