Over 40 Advertisers Leave Rush Limbaugh

March 7, 2012

The bad news for Rush Limbaugh is piling up like cord wood.

At last count, 42 advertisers, two radio stations and two musicians have closed the door on Limbaugh following incendiary comments he made last week about a Georgetown law student who testified before Congress in favor of having birth control covered under insurance plans.

Limbaugh called the student, Sandra Fluke, a “slut” and a “prostitute.”  The conservative commentator apologized for his “insulting” comments in a statement posted to his website on Saturday and again on his radio show Monday.

Despite the apology, which Fluke said she did not think “changes anything,” customers and listeners have taken to social media to inundate advertisers, stations and sponsors of Limbaugh’s show with calls to boycott Limbaugh.

Limbaugh told his listeners today that “everything’s cool,” noting that many of the advertisers that have yanked their support are local and thus have little if any impact on the show’s revenues.

    Don’t understand why people are all worked up, when you asked to get paid to sleep around that makes you exactly what Rush said she is. I guess truth hurts in the liberal world,
