Sponsor contact is working!
The StopRush Project has announced that over 2,200 sponsors have pulled ads from Limbaugh's show, via documented messages/statements. Many other sponsors have left his show quietly, bringing the actual amount of sponsors who have left, to a higher, unknown total.
Daily Kos diaries, this Petition, FlushRush, The StopRush Project and numerous other activist groups, are causing an immense impact on the demise of Limbaugh's hate-filled show. One of our new Daily Kos diarists, ProgLegs, just posted this diary yesterday, and it's already going viral: http://www.dailykos.com/...
We can all join the Fight to Flush Rush. This Petition goes out to 40 sponsors at a time and lists the StopRush and FlushRush groups: http://www.change.org/...
Many wonder how Limbaugh has managed to stay afloat, given the mass sponsor exodus. This past weekend, it was reported that FreedomWorks, linked to The Tea Party and Super PAC, has been picking up much of the slack for Rush, after his loss of so many advertisers. Adding insult to injury, StopRush groups also report that some sponsors were offered free ad spots on the Limbaugh show to fill the empty space. (and sometimes even the free offers were turned down)
Rush, you just don't get to call Sandra Fluke, or any woman, a 'slut' and 'prostitute' on our public airways - and get away with it.
This is happening. It's time for Limbaugh to Exit (Stage Right). The people are speaking and sponsors are listening. This is the true beauty of free speech.
Let's keep this momentum going.
