crush limbaugh

looks bad for wingnut radio. thinkprogress:

thinkprogress has obtained an internal memo from premiere radio networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the rush limbaugh show. premiere is the distributor of limbaugh’s program. the advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including michael savage, glenn beck and sean hannity. according to the memo, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”

the existance of the memo was first reported over the weekend by radio-info.com, an industry newsletter. radio-info did not publish the full list of companies. the memo eas posted website of the traffic directors guild of america, an association of professionals who distribute paid advertisements to radio stations. it was quickly deleted but thinkprogress obtained a copy from a google snapshot of the site taken on march 9.

previously, thinkprogress has reported that 50 companies requested their advertising be pulled from the rush limbaugh show following his sexist attacks on sandra fluke. the publication of the memo adds an additional 91 companies to the list of companies that have dropped limbaugh...
the article goes on to list those companies by name.

it's ironic to think that last week andrew breitbart died and rush limbaugh committe suicide.

Electronic cigarettes eliminates the tobacco from smoking, giving the smoker a safer cigarette with far fewer health consequences than those caused by traditional cigarettes and cigars. It accomplishes this through a system that allows the smoker to enjoy smoking even in restricted areas restaurants, bars, airplanes etc. No need to worry about second hand smoke.

Time for a congressional investigation into El Rushbo's sex tourism.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving bigot. Hopefully that idiot's influence on American political discourse is at an end.
