Skip to comments.Tally Of Advertisers In Rush Limbaugh Exodus Climbs To 20
Posted on 03/06/2012 12:28:07 PM PST by SeekAndFind
According to a series of advertisers' Twitter and Facebook statements, at least 20 different sponsors have now pulled their spots from Rush Limbaugh's radio show.
In case you're new to the kerfuffle—welcome out of hibernation!—advertisers began dropping like flies after Limbaugh called a Georgetown law student and women's rights activist a "slut" and a "prostitute" for supporting healthcare coverage for contraception.
Sleep Number and The Sleep Train, both mattress suppliers, were the first two advertisers to pull their ads Friday, and the numbers have grown tenfold since then.
Media Matters has been regularly updating a list of advertisers that have been dropped (or aired) ads on Limbaugh's show.
On Tuesday, Bare Escentuals, Sensa Weight Loss program, Hadeed Carpet, Thompson Creek Windows, Vitacost, AccuQuote Life insurance, and Polycom all joined the Exodus.
Two local radio stations have also stopped running Limbaugh's show.
But some advertisers are finding it difficult to pull their ads, even if they disagree with Limbaugh's statements, because they bought package deals with the network. This means that their ads aren't specifically intended to air during Limbaugh's show.
Amberen, a menopause medication, explained the difficulty on its Facebook page:
"We understand that some of our customers are concerned that Amberen ads are still airing on the Rush Limbaugh show. Lunada Biomedical assures you that we take these concerns to heart! Most of our employees, including the CEO, are female. And like millions of other Americans we were outraged by Rush Limbaugh's incendiary and offensive comments. However, we are a small company that buys remnant (leftover) media time and, as such, we cannot, by definition, be considered the ‘sponsors’ of Mr. Limbaugh's show.”

I think you're right. Honestly!!! Do liberals ever NOT lie?
(yawn) I listen to Rush every day and I never heard of most of these alleged advertisers. They are probably advertisers localized to various markets. They can and will be replaced. And two stations dropped Rush’s show? What’s that leave - - only 500 left?
So basically these companies who are cancelling are being used as fools and will most likely lose money because the people calling are community organizers or how about mafia muscle what is the difference between the two. It is like a gosh darn protection racket if you ask me.
OK to the conservative activists out there who want to fight fire with fire...

One of the stations dropping Rush was in Hilo, Hawaii, not exactly a conservative hotbed. The other was in western Massachusetts, and is owned by a bunch of Ben and Jerry Vermont Liberals.

Who cares. Thy can drop the price a tiny bit and get plenty of new advertisers. I am sure about that. Hmm... advertise on the #1 listened to radio show? Yeah, I think they won’t have a problem finding new companies.
I called ProFlowers today and spoke with Crystal. I was polite and informed Crystal that my family would no longer be using ProFlowers. I then went on to state that March is our birthday month and we had spent $118.00 with a competitor. She did not ask why but was sorry to see us go. I asked don’t you wish to know why we stopped useing your business. It was because you pulled advertising from Limbaugh’s show.
The money response is as follows: “Yes,I already thought that was the case. I’m sorry you decided not to use ProFlowers.”
ONE FOR RUSH!!!!!!!!!
Yep. As well as it worked for George Allen or any other conservative who ever apologized to the sick lefty scum. I am still flabberghasted that Rush didn't know any better. All he did was fling open the floodgates of scumbag Democrat hell. Wow.
The left is trying to destroy Rush, free speech, We the People AND they are well organized. Whether you’re a consumer or not, contact these companies and, on behalf of the Constitution, our freedom and liberty, tell them that you will no longer be using their services, or that you will never use their services because they choose to blacklist Rush, and drop their advertising on his program.
Freedom fighters of wars past used all methods of resistance. We need to learn from them.
I listened to NPR this morning on the way to work and Carbonite was a sponsor. I guess NPR doesn’t NEED taxpayer funds.
Because we don't have a 501c3 that conservatives can act as watchdogs through. REad the about page at Media Matters and tell me what part of the First Amendment they don't violate.
St. Vincent’s Medical Center? Do they think they’ll be taken over last?
