So Rush Apologized (apparently for displaying what he thought was his sense of humor), but he’s still losing advertisers.
Even though he made this lackluster apology, he is still losing his advertising base. Here’s today’s announcement in the press:
NEW YORK (AP) — A flower company is the seventh advertiser to pull its ads from conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh‘s radio program in reaction to his derogatory comments about a law student who testified about birth control policy.
ProFlowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh’s program because his comments about Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke “went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company.”
The six other advertisers that say they have pulled ads from his show are mortgage lender Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems Inc., online data backup service provider Carbonite and online legal document services company LegalZoom.
Here’s a bit from my sense of humor: how many more advertisers leaving would it take to get this foul-mouthed asshole off the air?
The first hour or so was just trying to make them realize that I was a regular customer (although account numbers, the last four digits of my Social Security number and the job ticket number they gave me three weeks ago went completely unrecognized.)
Now we are scheduled (AGAIN!) for Wednesday morning at 8 AM.
I should have gone back to DISH.
