Rush Limbaugh ad boycott going strong

in Uncategorized by

The New York Times reports that this week “new evidence emerged” that the ad boycott of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show “was costing Premiere Radio Networks — the show’s syndicator — money, though the total amounts are unclear.”

“This month, powered by online organizing tools, liberal activist groups and other critics of Mr. Limbaugh have successfully highlighted the host’s repeated attacks on a Georgetown University law student, Sandra Fluke, and persuaded companies to advertise elsewhere, at least temporarily.”

Bloomberg asked American voters whether Limbaugh should be fired after the uproar over his remarks, and by a 53% to 42% margin, they agreed.

Nonetheless, ABC News says Limbaugh used his show to declare the controversy all-but-over, claiming victory against Democrats and the “Obama media.”
