If they don't, what does that say about THEM?

NO ONE can successfully defend his obnoxious comments regarding Fluke.

But the utter misogynistic viciousness of Rush's slander, directed at an innocent young woman who, for most of us, brought our daughters to mind... I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of long-term listeners turn Limbaugh off in disgust this time.

Number 7! Advertiser pulls out from backing Rush Limbaugh's show even after the "apology"... for derogatory comments about law student who testifed about health policies for women.

Due to complaints on Twitter and Facebook, ProFlowers pulled ads from the obnoxious show, stating these negative responses affected their marketing strategy.

Other six: Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems, Carbonite and Legal Zoom.

Complaints to the advertisers!
Info and list of some advertisers on topplebush.com as well as addresses to THANK THE ABOVE COMPANIES!
Yes, how dare that man exercise his constitutional right to freedom of speech! Of all the nerve.

I realize that the advertisers also have the right to pull their ads but hopefully they will be replaced by true American patriot companies who do not collapse when someone dares to say something that is not politically correct.

It's actually a good thing, because now WE know who NOT to spend our money supporting....ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems, Carbonite and Legal Zoom. Thanks for the head's up!

You'll be fair game too if you ever testify before a congressional panel.
Nobody is ever "fair game" for what Limbaugh did to Fluke. If the opposite of innocent is "guilty", what would say Ms Fluke is guilty of?

Just to be clear, I'm not saying Limbaugh doesn't have the right to say whatever foul thing comes out of his mouth. But he assumes full responsibility for what happens afterward.

Breaking... AOL is OUT as a Rush sponsor.

Haha with such a large audience, companies are probably psyched that other companies are dropping their ad spots.

Rush is the most popular radio show host....ever. He helps many people form opinions on issues usually pushed by the liberal media complex, which includes Fox News. You cannot stop his influence among Americans.

Why do you consider it "patriotic" to support the calling of women "sl*ts, prostitutes, et" and demanding that they send you videos of them having sex?

Good news, thanks OP. I know many female attorneys who boycotted legal zoom bcs of him. He is a misogynist and nothing but a divisive hate monger. Anyone with a brain can see through his phony schtick.

Because most customers/decision-makers who patronize/fund those advertisers are women the economic impact on the advertisers is significant.
