    The Politico ^ | March 14, 2012 | Dylan Byers
    (VIDEO AT LINK) Following two weeks of news reports about a Rush Limbaugh advertiser exodus, a small businessman in Lenor City, Tennessee, has come out with an advertisement in Limbaugh's defense. Steven Eimers, who runs a local window cleaning service and recorded the advertisement at WOKI Knoxville yesterday, says he bought the ad not just to earn business but because he wanted to support free speech. "I've already got a ton of positive repsonses," Eimers told me. "I'm just a small little window cleaning company, but for a small business guy the ads on Rush right now are not that...
  • Limbaugh Will Not Forgive Or Negotiate With Companies That Pulled Advertising

    As advertisers keep joining in on the Rush Limbaugh boycott, one company only lasted a week before it went back to the conservative talk show host with its tail between its legs. But Limbaugh is not ready to forgive and forget. The Los Angeles Times reports that Sleep Train, which had advertised with Limbaugh for 25 years, asked to relaunch a "voiced endorsement" on Limbaugh's show on Thursday ... and they were turned down. The funny thing is, Sleep Train was the first advertiser to pull its ads from Limbaugh's show. After receiving a slew of angry messages for advertising...

    Daily Caller ^ | March 14, 2012 | Caroline May
    In the wake of uproar following conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s characterization of 30-year-old contraception activist and Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke last month as a “slut,” Limbaugh has seen advertisers flee and entire campaigns waged to get him off the air. But the big question remains: Just how have Limbaugh’s ratings been affected? 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 no where but up — despite the anti-Limbaugh push. ...more...
  • Politico Reporter Smears: Limbaugh Is Like the 'Serial Murderer' With 'Bodies in the Trunk' (Video)

    Newsbusters ^ | 3/13/2012 | Scott Whitlock
    According to Joe Williams, the senior White House reporter for Politico, Rush Limbaugh is like the "serial murderer" who was caught with "three bodies in the trunk." The veteran journalist made the outrageous comparison on Tuesday's Martin Bashir show, a program that included other liberal smears against the conservative radio host. Before making his offensive connection, Williams highlighted his background covering the police. Regarding Limbaugh's comments about Sandra Fluke, the journalist linked: "... [Law enforcement] always would catch the serial murder because he was driving around with a busted taillight, not because he had, like, three bodies in the trunk."...

    SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., March 13 (UPI) -- The syndicator of Rush Limbaugh's U.S. radio talk show said it was canceling all national commercials airing during the show for two weeks, a Web site reported. Premiere Networks, the largest U.S. radio syndication company based on programming popularity, said in a memo to affiliate-station managers it suspended the national commercials airing on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" from Monday through March 19, Radio-Info.com reported. While some radio stations pay huge fees to air Limbaugh's program, many air it for free or at low cost, provided they let Premiere run several minutes of national...

    Editor's note: Sandra Fluke is a third-year law student at Georgetown University Law Center and has served as president of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice. (CNN) -- Last month, students from several Catholic universities gathered to send a message to the nation that contraception is basic health care. I was among them, and I was proud to share the stories of my friends at Georgetown Law who have suffered dire medical consequences because our student insurance does not cover contraception for the purpose of preventing pregnancy. I joined these students in speaking at a media event because I believe...

    This contraception thing … are you operating under the mistaken impression that what we’ve been talking about here is a right to use contraception? Not so. If you listened carefully to the words of the now-famous Sandra Fluke you will have heard that the issue wasn’t whether or not she or her horny classmates could use contraception – but rather who would pay for it. Fluke, you see, was demanding that the pills and condoms be paid for by someone else; and now she’s been joined by aaaaaaacitivists across the country. Somehow in this age of entitlement contraception has become...

    American Spectator ^ | March 12, 2012 | Jed Babbin
    Now that the media feeding frenzy has calmed at least for a bit, it's worth saying that we've missed the whole point on Mizz Sandra Fluke. Fluke is the Georgetown Law School student who testified against the religious right of her school to refuse to pay for contraception because to do so would violate its religious principles. It's titillating -- but irrelevant -- to speculate about Fluke's sexually promiscuity. To try to characterize her as Rush Limbaugh did could be accurate but isn't connected to the political issue at hand. Sandra Fluke is a welfare queen. Remember, back in...

    Mark your calendars, gentlemen.  An incipient national sexless nightmare is nearly upon us:   The women’s group “Liberal Ladies Who Lunch” is putting together an unusual event, which it is calling “Access Denied: Sex Strike.”  The event, which is scheduled to take place between April 28 and May 5, features a poster saying “If our reproductive choices are denied, so are yours.” What has these elegant ladies in such a tizzy, you ask?  Their "rights" are under assault, or something:   Younger men and women may not remember the "good old days" when the only reproductive choice we had was...

    The Alabama Democratic Party has now scrubbed a web page advertising its upcoming fundraiser with HBO’s Bill Maher following an uproar from conservatives about the event because of the comedian’s history of making sexist statements about women. The web address — http://aldemocrats.org/bill-maher — once took visitors to an invitation to the Maher reception in Huntsville on March 17. Now it redirects to the homepage of the Alabama Democratic Party. Bradley Davidson, the executive director of the Alabama Democratic Party, has not returned multiple requests for comment from TheDC about the reception. The scrubbing was first reported by the Alabama blog...

    Schumer Defends Maher Because He's 'On at 11:00 at Night' MAR 11, 2012 • BY DANIEL HALPERS ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked New York senator Chuck Schumer this morning whether Democrats should return Bill Maher's money. Schumer responded by saying "no," because "Bill Maher is a comedian who is on at 11:00 at night but has very little influence on what’s happening here." Maher, who recently pledged $1 million to President Obama's super PAC, is under fire for misogynistic comments directed toward Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, after Democrats targeted Rush Limbaugh for his own unsavory remarks.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer says President Obama’s super PAC doesn’t need to give back the $1 million it got from comedian Bill Maher — even if he’s made crude comments about women. * * * “I mean, look, the bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty and directed at a particular young woman who had a particular point of view and was expressing herself. Bill Maher is a comedian. It’s much different. Rush Limbaugh has tremendous weight in the Republican Party. No one will rebut him. Bill Maher’s a comedian who's on at 11 o’clock at night but...

    How very open-minded and reasonable it was of Bill Maher to deliver this little riff on the Santorums' decision to homeschool their children (h/t NewsBusters):CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Let’s not even get into his use of the term “madrassa,” which refers to an Islamic seminary that teaches mostly Islamic subjects. Suffice it to say anyone concerned about brainwashing should worry less about Rick Santorum’s children and more about subjugated women and children in the Middle East.Instead, let’s focus on the “comedian’s” own appalling lack of knowledge. What Bill Maher doesn’t know about homeschooling could fill a book he’d...

    Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday dismissed calls for a pro-President Barack Obama super PAC to return comedian Bill Maher’s $1 million donation following accusations of sexism over comments he’s made about 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and other women. The issue has received particular attention in the wake of a video from a pro-conservative women group calling out the “double standard” in the way Maher and Rush Limbaugh’s “slut” comment have been treated. Asked on ABC’s “This Week” whether Maher’s money should be returned, Schumer said no. “The bottom line is that Rush Limbaugh’s comments were just nasty...

    Mike Huckabee is expanding his media reach to a radio program scheduled to start airing in April. However, the show is scheduled to be in direct competition with none other than Rush Limbaugh. In a column for The Daily Beast today, David Frum thinks Huckabee’s new show might end up hurting Limbaugh’s numbers, and gave some insight into the reasons surrounding decisions by advertisers to leave Limbaugh’s program. Last month, Huckabee announced he would be doing the radio show for Cumulus Media Networks, while continuing to work the weekend shift on his Fox News show, Huckabee. His show has been...

    (202) 225-3816 A few days ago, a few congresswomen were confronted on film and asked to condemn the remarks of Bill Maher, who called Sarah Palin a c*nt and dumb tw*t. I've see three with the deer in the headlights look - Pelosi, Schakowsky, and Jackson Lee. None of them would make a comment. How difficult is that? The question is significant, since Maher has given a million bucks to the Obama SuperPac. How can Obama keep the money? I had to get it from Jackson Lee's office, so I made the call. The guy who answered knew nothing of...

    Last week, SHEPac released a video calling on President Obama's re-election campaign to give back a $1 million check written by "comedian" Bill Maher. Despite Maher's disgusting remarks, NOW (National Organization for Women) President Terry O'Neill, who claims to stand up for women, wants President Obama to be re-elected and doesn't think he should return Maher's check. Anything to keep abortion "safe and rare," right?
