  • 'Rush Limbaugh Show' responds to Brock

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month's supply of birth control pills for just $9. Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law. “Without insurance coverage,

    The controversy with Rush Limbaugh gave Sandra Fluke instant name recognition in the world of media and politics. So it was only a matter of time before someone asked her about running for office. Fluke said for now she is focused on law school, but that “maybe someday” she’ll consider the idea. At a panel about women’s history, Fluke said: “Numerous American women have actually written to me in the last few weeks to say that I should run for office [...] And maybe someday I will. But for now, I actually have to finish law school.” Not a yes,...

    Sandra Fluke: Politicians should be required to pass pro-woman litmus test to get elected By Michelle Fields -- The Daily Caller 12:09 AM 03/21/2012 ADVERTISEMENT Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke said on Tuesday that candidates running for office should have to pass a pro-woman litmus test in order to get elected. Fluke, an advocate for the Obama administration’s plan to force health insurers to cover birth control, was on Capitol Hill for a forum on “Opportunities and Challenges for a New Generation of Women,” in celebration of Women’s History Month. “There should be a litmus test that they be pro-women...

    On Tuesday night, following the announcement of the outcome of the Illinois Republican presidential primary, Ann Coulter offered Derek Hunter, a nighttime host on WMAL-FM in Washington, her thoughts on the debate about birth control — and the role Georgetown Law student and contraception activist Sandra Fluke has played in it. “They keep calling her Sandra ‘Fl-uck’ on MSNBC,” Coulter said. “I think they think it sounds better than Sandra ‘Fluke,’ but I think Sandra ‘Fl-uck’ sounds like a Chinese aphrodisiac.” The ordeal goes back earlier to a February congressional hearing in which Fluke told lawmakers that it costs a...

    Emboldened by Rush Limbaugh’s public apology over the weekend to a law school student whom he had called a “slut” and a “prostitute,” critics of the radio talk show host are intensifying their online campaign against his advertisers. he apology, they said, was a signal that the campaign was working. On Sunday, a seventh company, ProFlowers, said that it was suspending all of its advertising on “The Rush Limbaugh Show” despite his apologetic statement a day earlier. For now, the ad boycott is uncomfortable but not crippling for Mr. Limbaugh, who is estimated to make $50 million a year and...

    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.

    After decades as a dominant force in talk radio, Rush Limbaugh could be in for his biggest fight yet. But the threat isn't from activist groups who dislike his conservative politics. It is from one of his own: former Republican governor of Arkansas and onetime presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee. Starting April 9, Mr. Huckabee, a Fox News Channel commentator, will go head-to-head with Mr. Limbaugh in a syndicated radio program airing in the noon to 3 p.m. Eastern time, weekday slot.

    Alexandra Pelosi debuted a video she made for HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" last night. The video shows multiple welfare recipients in New York City proclaiming they were at the welfare office to get their "Obama bucks" and that they supported Obama because he "gives me stuff." Pelosi reported that people at the HBO headquarters in New York had said to her "you can't show this" even though just last week the ran a controversial video showing Mississippi voters saying inflammatory things against the president.

That's right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate flag and saying 'the South will rise again,' you get just one day. We'll call it 'St. Cracker's Day.'"

    YOUNGSTOWN State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves. Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

    The Washington Times affiliated radio program America's Morning News spoke with former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who is now a managing Director at the Washington D.C. based PR firm SKD Knickerbocker, on Sunday. She refused to answer questions regarding concerns about how much of a role the White House played in Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke's appearance before a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee to testify about Georgetown Law Center's lack of contraception coverage. Ms. Dunn also did not answer questions about if she thought HBO's Bill Maher was out of line when he called former...

    Two radio stations have dropped The Rush Limbaugh Show from their schedules following the firestorm surrounding his offensive attack on law student Sandra Fluke on his show last week. KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

The Los Angeles Times tells us that Sleep Train, thanks to furious Rush Ralliers, has come crawling back to Rush begging -- begging -- to come back on the program. And Rush said: no. Specifically, a spokesman for Rush said in response to the begging-to return Sleep Train: Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh's character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the future. Taken...
  • Palin Backs Breitbart's 'The Vetting,' DC Media Freaks Out

    Breitbart.com ^ | 3/16/12 | Joel B. Pollak
    The mainstream media in Washington, DC is apoplectic after Gov. Sarah Palin backed Andrew Breitbart's project, "The Vetting." In an exclusive article for Breitbart.com entitled "Breitbart Is Here," Palin had endorsed Breitbart's effort to vet Barack Obama, his Republican rivals--and the mainstream media itself: Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart. During the ’08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldn’t be bothered to investigate Barack...

    On his program, Fox News Channel’s Bill O’Reilly found yet another connection between Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke and the Democratic Party. Fluke, a so-called contraceptive advocate, rose to prominence after conservative talker Rush Limbaugh called her a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ on his radio show. On Thursday, O’Reilly reported that Fluke was being represented by Anita Dunn’s public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker. Dunn, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, served as White House Communications Director in 2009.. O’Reilly found on Friday that Fluke is also dating the son of “Democratic stalwart” William Mutterperl, who has made numerous donations to...

    So, to answer my own question from this afternoon — no, I guess we’re not quite done with this yet. And to repeat a point I made in that same post, for politicos and their apparatchiks, this “debate” is of course 99 percent about partisanship. When asked about Rush’s comments, Romney tersely said, “It’s not the language I would have used.” When asked about Maher this afternoon, though, he unloaded: In an appearance on the Sean Hannity radio show, Romney said, “Frankly, what Bill Maher said, and I finally read the transcripts, I was offended, outraged that a person would...

    Wonder how the left was able to mobilize so quickly on the Rush Limbaugh boycott? According to the architect behind it, Media Matters online strategy director Angelo Carusone, the project was actually created in 2009, but stayed inactive until the Sandra Fluke controversy boiled over (via Legal Insurrection): I started Stop Rush in 2009, 2010, and when I went to register the domain, I saw that Rush owned StopRush.com…. The Beck work was working, and I kind of froze the Rush work, and experimented with it a little, to get a sense of who Rush’s advertisers were and what their...

    Say what you want about Bill Maher; he is not a stupid man. But in an interview today with ABC's Jake Tapper, he sure sounds like one: Bill Maher: The bit I did about Palin using the word c—, one of the biggest laughs in my act, I did it all over the country, not one person ever registered disapproval, and believe me, audiences are not afraid to let you know. Because it was a routine where that word came in at just the right moment. Context is very important, (snip) stand-up comedy is the final frontier of free speech.
