  • Ex-Limbaugh sponsor says dropping show during Fluke controversy hurt company (carbonite)

    On August 1 Carbonite released its 2d Quarter 2012 results, the first full quarter after dropping Limbaugh in March. The results shocked Wall Street, as Carbonite did not meet its growth targets, causing multiple analysts to drop the target price. The stock dropped 15% in a day.

    Last week’s Chick-fil-A appreciation day must have been painful to watch for David Friend the CEO that runs Carbonite a computer file backup service that was once the king of its industry. Watching how well a business that is favored by the Right can do must have ground salt into the self- inflicted wound that is still plaguing Carbonite today. On Saturday March 3, David Friend, the breast beating fool who is the CEO of Carbonite, decided he could not even wait until the following Monday to drop his company’s advertising relationship with Rush Limbaugh. Bleating about Limbaugh having correctly...

    When Media Matters helped organize the Stop Rush boycott pressuring corporations to pull advertisements from Rush Limbaugh’s show, the online file storage company Carbonite was one of the first big names to give in. Now, as William Jacobson of the “Legal Insurrection” blog noted, Carbonite’s CEO David Friend conceded on a conference call that dropping Limbaugh deeply hurt the company’s earnings.

Now, as William Jacobson of the “Legal Insurrection” blog noted, Carbonite’s CEO David Friend conceded on a conference call that dropping Limbaugh deeply hurt the company’s earnings. “It turned out to be a bigger hole in our revenue than we had thought when we initially did this,” Friend said on a conference call on August 1. In fact, as Jacobson wrote, Carbonite’s 2nd Quarter 2012 results...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3 August 2012 | Sean Higgins
    During the height of the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy in March, software company Carbonite announced it would no longer sponsor the conservative radio host. As CEO David Friend said at the time: No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our...

    Carbonite was made known to the public through advertising on Rush Limbaugh's show yet was the first and most mean-spirited of the Sandra Fluke tools to reject him when he told the truth, as usual, but used words best left to low life sewer worms like Bill Maher, David Letterman and Sargent Shultz. Unlike the rat feces listed above, El Rushbo apologized.

You may have heard the ads on the radio that Carbonite is the way to go when it comes to saving back-up copies of your computer files. Well it's not the only way to go. Take my Seagate one-hundred gigabyte back-up drive, it does everything that Carbonite does and for less. But I'm not here to shout out about Seagate nor any other storage device manufacturer...I'm sure there's other reputable builders out there. What I am here to talk about is the hypocrisy of...

    The Daily Caller ^ | March 14, 2012 | Caroline May
    There has been no measure of his listenership since the Fluke flap. But nonpartisan radio expert Michael Harrison told The Daily Caller that Limbaugh’s numbers likely are going nowhere but up — despite the anti-Limbaugh push. Harrison is founder and publisher of Talkers magazine, the industry’s leading trade journal. According to Harrison, even if all the publicity is negative, it is a “good bet that Rush is enjoying pretty high ratings” last week and going into this week. “The irony is that he probably right now has the biggest audience he’s had in years, and the double irony of all...

    When Carbonite Inc. stock took a quick plunge this week, there was an obvious consensus about what caused the move: The company pulled advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s talk-radio program after the controversial host made inflammatory remarks about a Georgetown University law student. Yes, the market could have feared that Limbaugh’s fans would cancel Carbonite’s service, an online back-up solution for consumers and businesses, or mount their own boycott. Or maybe investors assumed Carbonite (US:CARB) will suffer because it will no longer have access to Limbaugh’s audience. Or it could be that investors saw in the release of the company’s Form...

    Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke. The company, Sleep Train, calls itself “the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.” In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy. “Thank you for your requests last week and this week...

    With cloud services now available, gone are the days of those local data backups to CDs or tape – or are they? If your business has a modest amounts of data to safeguard, then cloud services provide a convenient solution for moving a copy of your data over the web to a secure storage environment. The issue is with larger amounts of data, with some cloud backup providers like Carbonite reducing the speed at which the data is transferred. It’s a policy known as bandwidth throttling, something that competitors like CrashPlan say they avoid. If you know what you’re getting,...

    I am writing to express my disagreement with your decision to stop advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show for comments he made last week. It is my understanding that he has apologized for his comments and to Ms. Fluke. Your decision to pull your advertising in such an abrupt manner was both unnecessary and provocative. I believe you overreacted and as such I cannot in good faith show my support for your biased company and your irrational decisions. I note that Carbonite still advertises on the Ed Schultz program even after Mr. Schultz called Laura Ingraham a "slut". Because of...

    Yesterday, we informed in this space of what was going on behind the scenes with the CEO of Carbonite. CEO David Friend's real actions as recorded in the books of the Federal Election Commission completely rebuked his alleged reasons for dropping Carbonite's sponsorship. His thoroughly documented connection to Ed "The Slut" Schultz, MoveOn.org and other fanatically left-wing smear groups belied his indignant words. This is not the case with Lifelock CEO Todd Davis. What does a peep at Mr. Davis's FEC records show? Why – horrors -- the man has given money to Arizona conservative Republican Congressman Jeff Flake's U.S....

    A double standard exists in the Liberal realm of pseudo-impartiality, and it is on full display with the recent controversy over Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh’s comments aimed at Sandra Fluke. As a result of Limbaugh’s comments, in which he referred to Ms Fluke as a “slut,” several of his advertisers, including Quicken Loans, and most recently ProFlowers, dropped their advertising on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Carbonite is an online computer backup service company that Rush Limbaugh has highly touted, reading their ads live on the air. Outcry over Limbaugh’s comments led him to apologize to Sandra...

Currently there are no flights in the area servicing Britain, and Cleese's assistant figured the stranded star could take a taxi to Brussels, then catch the Eurostar train from there back to London. Cleese told Norway's TV2 that necessity drove him to it. "We checked every option but there were no boats and no train tickets available. That's when my fabulous assistant determined the easiest thing would be to take a taxi." The official total was reported to be £3,300 to take a cab from Oslo to Brussels. Cleese, 70,...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | July 10, 2006 | Bhushan Bahree and Russell Gold
    With global energy demand soaring, Saudi Arabia, whose abundant reserves of light oil have supplied the world for decades, is looking to unlock its huge, hard-to-tap and largely unexploited reservoirs of heavy crude. If it succeeds in overcoming the technical hurdles, the effort could significantly increase Saudi Arabia's oil reserves over the next several years, potentially adding some slack to tight energy markets. It would also be a blow to so-called peak-oil theorists who have forecast that world oil production is on the brink of peaking. Crude-oil prices have more than tripled since 2002 as increases in global demand have...
