Tipping Point? 29 Advertisers Remove Limbaugh Ads

Where has everyone been? While the true total number of advertisers on the Rush Limbaugh show is unknown, the number is dropping quickly. Social media campaigns over the last week have now pressured 29 advertisers to cease their support of the blowhard’s talk radio show. These companies surely knew what they were getting into when they made the deal with the devil to promote their products and services to Limbaugh’s audience, but it only took El Rushbo’s use of the words “slut” and “prostitute” to lead to their defection. This is important; they didn’t remove their ads because of what he said, they removed their ads because of public pressure. Now, it’s up to us to maintain pressure to see to it that they don’t return.

Here is the list of sponsors that should be commended for bailing on Limbaugh. Interestingly, JC Penney sponsored both Limbaugh and Ellen Degeneres. I assume Limbaugh stayed mum during the One Million Moms boycott of JC Penney due to their sponsorship of the openly gay daytime talk show host.
