I do not wish him ill. Just curious.

If he’s so great, how did we get Øbama? How come he never questions eligibility? etc.

Might be local radio advertisers. I don’t think Netflix ever advertised on Rush.

Will this have any impact on my listening to Rush? NO.

Will Rush find new advertisers? YES.

Will Clear Channel drop Rush? Nope, and if they were to he could easily go it on his own. Actually there is no reason for him to need to work, except he likes what he does.

It appears that most who like to comment - don’t listen.

His opening monologes the last three days have been pretty interesting.

I don’t know about you, but I never heard ads for most of those sponsors on Rush’s show. Carbonite, Pro-flowers, citrical (maybe), Sleep number mattresses, (not for awhile, though) and maybe Constant Contact, but the rest? Never heard a single ad.

Carbonite’s stock dropped 12% on Tuesday, AFTER they pulled their advertising on Friday. Rush’s advertising will pick up again or radio stations will go out of business.

Carbonite was already a big contributor to MoveOn.org, so pulling their ads from Rush was not a big step for them, but it was a costly one.

Many of these were never advertisers on Rush’s show. They are just trying to earn some cred with the Left.

Got to call BS on this list. Who confirmed the companies? ABC News? If so, so what.

What is your source for posting this thread?

Does not jive with what Rush said today.

Rush spent the first half hour of his show on this topic. These lists of sponsors that supposedly left Rush that are floating around are bogus.

Most were never sponsors to begin with so how could they leave?

“...we’re talking 18,000 different sponsors, okay? ABC News, who understands how this works and are purposely misrepresenting it, is out there ballyhooing that we have lost 28 sponsors. Twenty-eight sponsors out of 18,000! That’s like losing a couple of french fries in the container when it’s delivered to you at the drive-thru. You don’t even notice it.”

But here in NYC , 770 WABC , there were noticeably more Ad Council ads or similar PSAs. I cannot recall what were the real commercials.

I don’t believe it’s entirely correct either...we use Geico and I called their marketing department today and was told that Geico hasn’t advertised on Rush’s show since 2004...nothing to do with the Fluke incident...

Might be local radio advertisers.

Yes, or regional. They certainly aren't all EIB advertisers. As with all talk shows, Rush's show leaves "holes" for stations to fill with local and regional advertising (you hear a parody commercial or PSA if the station can't fill that spot).

Many of these are local advertisers — I do not think the person who posted this even listens to RUSH — he would know which are national advertisers versus local. I pay this no mind. Rush is not going off the air!!

Yep; this is just one instance why this list is laughable. The Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington have never used paid advertising, not even locally. Just PSAs.

Penny’s is already on my “Don’t Shop” list because of the way they are pushing Ellen Degenerate.

Sorry to hear about Sears - I’ve appreciated Craftsman tools. However, I read an article last week (FR?) saying that Sears looks like it’s going under. Dropping Rush because of someone (Fluke) who advocated mandatory insurance coverage for sex change operations is the height of stupidity for a company which was once considered iconic Norman Rockwell America.

When I was a small boy, my grandmother’s outhouse always had an out-of-date Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog for reading & ...umm...”sanitary” material. It looks like Sears new sales flyers may have to revive that great tradition. (not really...Charmin or its equivalent, works better. Not very interesting as reading material, though)

He said today that there are 18,000 national, regional and local advertisers and approximately 28 had decided to not advertise. Which means that 0.1555% is the reduction in advertising. He already has new advertisers in the national spots.

Here is Rush’s perspective on the matter:

If we think Rush is going to be hurt by the loss of advertisers, we are going into unnecessary hyperbole. Rush will be OK.

Also remember that Sears owns K-Mart. I’ve only really bought anything from JC Penney’s and K-Mart, but even then, it’s probably not enough for a personal boycott to be of much interest to them.

Rush mentioned that he might have 18,000 advertisers and the people that dropped his show were about normal for the average.

Planned Parenthood-linked Girls Scouts pulled out of sponsoring Rush’s show?

Say it ain’t so.

It ain’t. They are not a national sponsor of Rush’s program.

As Rush explained today, there are many ads in local markets that have no funding to his syndicate.

Everyone needs to email the CEO of Sleep Number Mattresses and question whether they will extend their boycott to the Warner Brothers network, CNN, Time-Life-Warner magazines, etc. since Bill Mahrer was on Time-Lies-Warner-Turner’s HBO network calling Sleep Number’s customers “sluts” who “wear out their mattresses”. Bill Mahrer then bragged he doesn’t have sponsors. But he does, Warner owns HBO and he also appears regularly on CNN which is a commercial cable channel.

Bitchslap that “libertarian” turd.

One of his advertisers is already begging him to let them come back.

Whichever advertiser it is should fess up and issue a PUBLIC apology to Rush for their “quick judgment” spurred on by a Media Matters fed frenzy coordinated with a long time lesbian rights activist who did not even appear before Congress.

Smoke and mirrors. Meanwhile the President himself slurred good Americans as “tea baggers” and violent protesters. He has coddled the Occupantload movement and THEY have raped women and shielded the perps from prosecution.

Such hypocrisy. The Democrat Party is anti-life (beginning and end of life). When will the war on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness end?
