Rush Limbaugh

More Sponsors Running for Hills

After 'Slut' Statement

3/5/2012 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rush Limbaugh is STILL hemorrhaging advertiser
Rush Limbaugh is STILL hemorrhaging advertisers -- several days after calling a Georgetown student a "slut" for asking the University for free birth control ... bringing his grand total to NINE lost sponsors.

Two sponsors -- Tax Resolution and AOL -- pulled their ads from his radio show today, following the mass exodus of advertisers like ProFlowers, LegalZoom and Citrix Systems over the weekend.

As for the other advertisers that have jumped ship -- bedding companies Sleep Train and Sleep Number, plus Quicken Loans and the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team.

Rush made the "slut" comment on the airwaves last week -- also calling student Sandra Fluke a "prostitute," after the Georgetown Law student testified before the House of Representatives on why birth control should be made freely available.

Rush offered a weak apology on Saturday -- claiming, "For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke."

So far, looks like his advertisers aren't buying it.

3/6/12 -- Just one day later, 24 additional sponsors have hit the "eject" button -- bringing the total to 33.

Good. Let's see how much longer he can last when nobody is paying the bills at the radio stations. Rush has been on the verge of self-destructing for years and this might be the thing that finally makes it happen.

Good! As they should!

What he said was so ignorant and wrong. So hurtful to women. He is a jerk.

Hope ALL the sponsors ditch him and that network!

Calling Fluke a slut and a prostitute was definitely stupid. It is equally stupid to expect others to pick up the tab for your birth control pills! Personal responsibility seems to be lost on a lot of Americans these days.

He thinks he is god, I bet the GOP wished he didn't have the power he really does have. A lot of yoyo's listen as if it is god's truth in what he says.

I've never ever heard of those advertisers that dropped Rush. They're the people who will loose money. Carbonite is a joke. I backup my stuff to a terabyte drive and a couple of other devices. ProFlowers delivers half dead vegetation. The other six are just as much crap as well.

I hope they kick his moronic ass off the air for good. He's the worst of what's wrong in America.

Birth control SHOULD be given freely. The last thing this country needs is more unwanted babies that end up being neglected, abandoned or abused.

Rush Limbaugh is like a Kardashian. No matter how much we hate him, he just refuses to shut up and go away.

She's baaaack    

Hey Rush, did you ever consider a panel of rich white men deciding the legal issues on a woman's use of her vagina and reproductive anatomy? Your Viagara pills are paid for by your insurance. Your drugs are probably paid for by it too. Those rich white men no doubt have their mistresses birth control paid for by insurance too.
.
You have a lot of nerve calling that student a prostitute and telling her to make a sex tape and make it public. Did you ever consider she could have PCOS? Did you ever consider she has a bleeding disorder and needs regulation in her periods? Did you ever consider she may have hormonal issues that need to be regulated with birth control pills? Of course not, you are a *FAT, DRUGGED UP, DISGUSTING PIG* and all you can think about is SEX. Your ignorance is showing fat boy.

So, it's okay for Ed Shultz from the Ed show on MSNBC to call a Fox News host a slut and he is still on the air, where is the outrage, where is the adverts being pulled from his show? What a biased ass bunch of phonies..no lies in calling out the truth or are liberals too retarted to know the difference?

s the Planned Parenthood Susan Kimmen thing...once Conservatives start to yes as the liberals yelled....they will all come back to Rush...Conservatives listened to the whole point he was making...and got it...Liberals got his message too...they are just big cry babies when they get slammed in a way that all understand....really...3000.00 for birth control and we taxpayers have to pay for it? How much sex do you have to have on taxpayers dime in college?

Rush point if you take the point is and was totally valid...the left uses this kind of description all the time...you all love the Bill Maher type comments...but when Rush delivers the message the way you all get it...WAAAAHHHHH...stop it hurts to much...yeah right liberal babies...dish it, but can't take it.

Rush is geius for getting you all over this issue. Now the whole country can really see the argument and point!

Pay for your own sex and recreation on your own dime...not in healthcare or with any tax dollars.

Get wise and hear her testimony and his entire rant and put two and two together you dummies.
