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.

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

Rush, I don't think this girl is a slut for wanting the public to pay her $3000/year to buy contraceptives for sex... I think it makes her a skanky slut whore.

Well, if the shoe fits! It's not the responsibility of the "University" to make sure she can have sex with no consequences. She sounds like the person the slang word was meant for. Just Saying...

OK - for all of you small minded, ignorant, uneducated(although you believe that is a GOOD thing) conservatives...

The difference between what liberal comedians/commentators say and what Rush says is that no one in the Democratic party puts these comedians/commentators on a pedestal and crowns them "King of the Republicans". Every single Republican politician who has said something unfortunate about Rush's hate filled rants immediately grovels at his feet and apologizes.
In 1995 Rush Limbaugh was brought onto the floor of Congress by a giddy and adoring Republican majority and it was declared "the Rush Limbaugh Congress" for the day.
When Ed Schultz called Laura a $lut he immediately apologized and was suspended without pay for a week. Rush blasted this girl for 3 days and even said he wanted to watch her having sex!! Waaaaaaaaaayy worse than Ed Schultz. And he is the Republican King - all hail Rush, the four times married drug addict who was caught with 29 Viagra pills after a weekend in the Dominican Republic. Yuck. You righties can have him, he's all yours.

honesty    

Being a female, with fiberoid tumors, who has to take birth control to keep those fiberoids from bleeding or getting worse, and knowing how hard it is to get insurance to pay for medicine just to stop me from bleeding because it is also a birth control, while the men on my same plan can get viagra with no problem, infuriates me. I do not buy Rush's apology, and I will not buy from Rush's advertisers!

Limbaugh's name calling and impugning this young student's character is typical of his bullying approach to any "dialogue."

He is a savvy entertainer, to be sure, but a morally reprehensible and hypocritical human being. Please let this be the beginning to a quick end to his fascist career.

First of all, I need to remind all my liberal friends who hate Rush Limbaugh that he is not a Politician, elected and paid by the tax payers like hateful Maxine Waters. He is not a “journalist” (pseudo journalist) like Dan Rather who had no problem with reporting the fake letter on Bush’s military record as fact. Nor like NBC news that put igniters in the fuel tanks of Chevy trucks to get them to explode on impact. He is a political commentator who has a constitutional right to speak and I have a constitutional right to listen to him. I know that the left is a big time supporter of free speech, as long as they approve of what you say. If not, they will do everything possible to silence you.

I just love these comments like those made by that bastion of love and virtue “charley” that wishes Limbaugh would “have heart attack and die” and that his wife is the “biggest slut out there”. I can recall that misogynist, Christian hating, moron of morons Bill Maher calling Sarah Palin a “cu#t” and we didn’t see one tenth the media driven outcry that Rush is being subject to. And Kacy, last year I had to spend over $1,500 for my thyroid, cholesterol and high blood pressure medications. Maybe “Charlie” wishes that I would have a heart attack and die since he’s such loving, caring liberal. What the f*ck ever happened to the hippies and flower children of the 60s and 70s? It seems they morphed into Bolsheviks and Brown Shirts. Limbaugh was joking. The hateful things said on this and leftwing blog sites are downright scary.

Why is everyone on Rush's ass? Take a look at what this chick is asking for. She wants U.S. taxpayers, to pay for her birth control. You hear that? She wants tax money so she can have sex without getting pregnant. Well, I've decided I want tax money to buy me beer. Why can't you liberal tards see what this bit%$ is saying rather than jump all over the radio guy because he is using some common sense and calling a pig a pig?

Sincerity    

Kacy: 4 hours ago
Please explain. She is taking the pill for an ovarian cyst, a legit medical reason. Furthermore, she is paying premiums on PRIVATE insurance. The discussion centered on the government now requiring that insurers cannot deny coverage of the pill.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


As long as "MEN" are having their "ED" meds covered by insurance companies, IT'S ONLY FAIR for these same insurers to cover "BIRTH CONTROL PILLS" for women. The premiums WOMEN ARE PAYING like all premiums are being used to "COVER THE COSTS" for the ED meds that men are taking. It's blatantly "SEXIST" to deny women such coverage for WHATEVER REASON!!! ED meds are primarily for "RECREATIONAL" purposes. Not being able to "GET IT UP" isn't going to kill a man and it has "NO IMPACT" on taxpayers. However, "UNPLANNED PREGNANCIES" have a "DIRECT IMPACT" on taxpayers especially, if the parents are unable to properly care for their child. When taken properly, birth control pills are one of the most reliable forms of birth control. It makes no sense to extend a man's ability to successfully "PROCREATE" and not protect a woman who doesn't want to be stuck with an "unplanned pregnancy"!!! It doesn't take a "ROCKET SCIENTIST" TO FIGURE THIS OUT!!! Rush Limbaugh is "WAY OUT OF HIS DEPTH" when it comes to issues that DIRECTLY IMPACT WOMEN which is "WHY" ADVERTISERS ARE DROPPING IS "DUMB AZZ"!!! I guess he "HASN'T FIGURED OUT" that WOMEN ARE "CONSUMERS", TOO!!! Eventually this "ADDICTED AZZ WHACK JOB" will find himself "OUT IN THE COLD" WHERE HE BELONGS!!!

She IS a slut by Websters dictionary, go freaking look it up. Pomiscous = slut = this broad. And anyone having as much sex as her and declares it around the world is too. As for Limbaugh, he'll do what Beck did, turn to his real fans and listeners who work for a living and go behind a paywall where the leftists cant touch him and make him even 100 times richer. Beck's GBTV leads the entire pack in subscribers and has made him so rich he can do nothing but tell the truth because WE PAY HIM not sponsors/ Fuuuuckkk them, I was gonna buy a sleep matic bed and now they can kisss my aazzzzz and they just kissed a 2000 sale away for sucking up to decedent hypocritical ****kkksmoking lefties.. Suckkkk on that one. YOU WON"T SILENCE US
