  1. no one dropped David Letterman. Letterman made insulting comments to a little girl. At least Rush was talking about a fully grown woman.

    3. Freedom of speech does not guarantee freedom of sponsors. You have a right to say what you want, but we have a right to not listen or have our name associated with you if we disagree. Maybe 10% of the population listen to Rush, and 50% percent of the population are women and half of those are angry now. That is 25% of the population is angry women and 10% is Rush listeners. And I bet he lost a few listeners who may have been conservative women, better knock it down to 9% listen to Rush. The advetisers are smart to go where the money is. Or in this case, stay away from where the money isn't.

    4. Where were you when Ed Schultz called Laura Ingraham a SLUT. Probably laughing with the "ladies" at The View.
      http://www.mrctv.org/videos/abcs-view-makes-light-ed-schultzs-slut-reference-laura-ingraham

      Those companies made bad business decisions. The demographics of Rush's show are the people who have money to spend. They are not teh 99%'ers that are begging for govt handouts.

      Delete
    5. I saw Ed Shultz's disgraceful comments and I also saw his contrite and honest apology, which Laura Ingraham was gracious enough to accept. Shultz grovelled and asked to be suspended. He voluntarily gave up salary. In short, he did all he could to show that he was honestly sorry and embarrassed by his behavior. Did Limbaugh do ANY of this? NO!! He took the opportunity to make his so-called "apology" into yet another political statement and then proceeded to insult advertizers who have poured millions into his show over the years, just because they had the audacity to take a stance against something the great one said.

      Yet again the right tells us just half the story....without having the honesty to tell us what Ed did to try to rectify the situation. As for the the asinine comment about Rush's listeners having money to spend while those who don't like Rush are the 99% begging for govt handouts....what an idiotic cliche!

      Delete
    6. "Did Limbaugh do ANY of this?"

      The apology was contrite and honest, if you read it. He also wanted to point out the substance of what he said, which got lost in the kerfuffle.

      "and then proceeded to insult adverti[s]zers"
      I didn't catch that part. When and how did he insult?

      "to take a stance against something the great one said."

      Apparently the sponsors are the only ones allowed to have a say, according to you. Those who feel the advertisers overreacted should shut up?

      "....without having the honesty to tell us what Ed did to try to rectify the situation."

      I don't really see how Ed's groveling, etc. is relevant. In his situation, as is Rush's, an apology was all that I see as necessary.

      Delete
    7. I both read his apology and listened to it live on air and it was anything but contrite and honest! He "apologized" for the use of two words..slut and prostitute. I don't recall him mentioning his demand that Ms Fluke post videos of herself having sex....or did I miss that part?

      He insulted the sponsors who had dropped him by comparing them with french fries and suggesting that the loss of a few was trivial. These were businesses who had pumped millions into his show over the years. I call that insulting!

      I personally don't care whether those who speak out against the sponsors that dropped the show shut up or not. Of course they have every right to protest, just as I have every right to applaud these companies.

      The difference between Ed and Rush is that Ed's apology really did seem to come from the heart. Rush appeared and sounded petulant and resentful in his apology. Ed voluntarily gave up salary. Did Rush?

  5. Now I know the companies I will never again do business with. I have used Legal Zoom and ProFlowers and I am looking for a new bed but sure won't be from Select comfort/Sleep Number.

    6. My daughter takes the pill because her periods were so heavy they were talking about taking her uterous. She is 15. They were (literally) bleeding her dry. She is also a virgin (they do an exam before you go on the pill) and every year after. You are trying to say that she is a slut because she is on the pill. Our insurance pays for this. This argument isn't about the government paying for the pill, it's about private insurance being required to pay for the pill. Guess what! I pay $600 a month for that insurance, they damned well better pay for that pill, even if I work for the G.D. Pope himself! IF she was having sex and didn't take the pill and got pregnant, you know what would happen then?! YOU -the taxpayer- would be paying for medicaid for her pregancy, section 8 for her housing (she wouldn't be able to stay here) welfare for her living expenses, food stamps for her food, WIC for her baby formula, and it would go on for years because odds are she wouldn't finish school and therefore never qualify for a real job. A few little pills is a much smaller burden on society.

      Delete
    7. Since you wouldn't even let her stay with you if she got pregnant!!! And you want the Pope to pay for the pill for her!!! Who do you think you are? If you have insurance that pays for the pill...let them...Don't think you have the right to have someone else pay for the choices you or your daughter makes...The pity of all this is the fact that a religious institution is not willing to go against their belief to satisfy yours...You should not try to force your views on others...You know when you work for a Catholic institution (hospital,charity,school, college or university)you would be informed what their insurance covers and what it doesn't....If you don't like it ...work somewhere else...

      "You are trying to say that she is a slut because she is on the pill."
      No, and Rush didn't either. Ms. Fluke wanted us to pay for her birth control for her recreational sex, in addition to situations where it was medically necessary. We object to the recreational sex part, not the medically necessary part.

      "I pay $600 a month for that insurance, they damned well better pay for that pill,"

      Not if they don't want to. It's not up to you (other than going with another health care plan) or anybody else to tell a business what they can and can't offer for sale.

      "...even if I work for the G.D. Pope himself!"

      I would imagine many Catholics would find this much more offensive that Rush's "slut" comment. I think you owe them an apology, just as I thought Rush owed Ms. Fluke an apology.

      "YOU -the taxpayer- would be paying for medicaid for her pregancy, section 8 for her housing (she wouldn't be able to stay here) welfare for her living expenses, food stamps for her food, WIC for her baby formula"

      None of which is just. Do you think your daughter should have any personal responsibility in this situation? Could her getting pregnant have been caused by a decision she made? Should the "man" who got her pregnant be providing all of the things you list?

      WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU AND WHERE DO YOU GET OFF??? I am so sick of people who believe that they are ENTITLED to any/everything. While I sympathize with your daughter’s medical situation, I think YOU ARE A JOKE! Living in this country doesn't entitle you to everything - living in this country allows you the opportunities to make your life better. If you aren't willing to do that and teach your child(ren) how to do that, why does everyone else have to pay for your lack of willingness to even try? It is people like you who think they are ENTITLED to any/everything that have put our country in financial ruin and you continue to destroy it!

      You should be ashamed of yourself for even claiming that you would throw your daughter to the wind if she comes up pregnant. I don't agree with or like teen pregnancy, but you're her parent and the rest of the country is not. Why should EVERYONE else be responsible to care for her, if she were to end up pregnant? Is it that you just don't want to take responsibility or are you like a lot parents these day that don't want to actually have to parent? For goodness sakes, if your daughter gets pregnant, allow her to finish school and ensure that when she isn’t in school, she’s raising that child. As for the extra money to care for the child, take the father to court for child support. Even if he is under 18 and not working, you’d still get something because his parents are legally responsible until his is – what age is that again? Oh yeah! – 18. SERIOUSLY, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU??? I honestly, think that if you were to throw your daughter out on her own for getting pregnant that you should serve jail time for neglect and abandonment, and then be billed for everything the taxpayers have to pay to care for her and the child.

      As for the religious aspect, you are ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS! HOW DARE YOU tell ANYONE that they need to provide for you because you feel it is what you are entitled to? The pilgrims that came to this country came here looking to not only get away from high taxes, but also to evade religious persecution. So, before you get all high and mighty about YOUR BELIEFS/IDEALS, maybe you should open up some history books and get a better understanding of everything our forefathers had to endure and sacrifice for you to have the freedom to be a whining and sniveling brat who for some reason thinks you're ENTITLED to have everything handed to you. I am not a religious person by any means, but I actually paid attention in school and continue to pay attention - intelligent and responsible people do that, at least some of the time, instead of running their mouths when they have no REAL knowledge and have no comprehension of reality or responsibility. I do however, have morals and a real sense of worth (NOT ENTITELMENT - shockingly, there IS a difference), I understand and accept my responsibilities as a decent human being, I believe in just trying to be a good person each day, I support our troops REGARDLESS of what war we are in (because supporting them means I am grateful for my freedoms and that I understand/appreciate their sacrifices), and I respect religious freedom (because if it weren't for those sacrifices that the pilgrims made, it’s likely I wouldn't have been born in this great country - which I am actually sincerely grateful for!)
      You need to get over yourself and your sense of entitlement. You should try to take your responsibilities as a person, parent and citizen more seriously because those of us that actually do take it seriously are tired of doing your dirty work. Basically, you need to get a clue!

    3. No, Bill Mahr had no business calling Sarah Palin a "Dumb Twat" unless of course he tried to converse with her vagina in an intellectual manner and received an illiterate response from it. In regards to the conservatives vs. liberals/ liberals vs. conservative statements consider the following: Team Romney owns a large portion of Team Limbaugh's propaganda machine that is why Team Romney was unwilling to do the right thing and instead stated they would have chosen alternative words to Team Limbaugh's statements but not alternative thinking. Team Romney is the majority shareholder of Bain Partners LLC, which is wholly owned by Clear Channel Communications, which (unless you are hiding under a rock) owns Premier Networks, who produces Team Limbaugh's Radio Broadcast. When I hear complaining from either Team (right or left) about media fairness, I try to remind them of these facts. The disrespect shown to our Commander in Chief during a time of War, when Americans should be standing side by side in solidarity with one another against the terrorists who threaten us every day is unconscionable and threatens our Union. So, what if it is an election year? We are at War on several fronts and poised to attack on others. The most important fact is that we are all Americans. President Obama stated that when he called Ms Fluke he couldn't help but think about his own daughters Sasha & Malia. He thought about his desire that one day they too would have the same opportunity as Ms. Fluke to testify before Congress about a subject that that they too were committed to, without fear of reprisals, of being maligned or fear of being bullied. President Obama's choice to walk in the path of Christ, offering comfort to the victim and leading the way for others to follow is same action, I only hope that I would do the same if given that choice. The four GOP candidates for President/Commander in Chief were given the same opportunity as President Obama to show the American Voter what they value the most. Unfortunately, for us, what they value the most is not the American Voter but the sound of their own voices.

    4. "The disrespect shown to our Commander in Chief during a time of War, when Americans should be standing side by side in solidarity with one another against the terrorists who threaten us every day is unconscionable and threatens our Union."

      Exactly - the left was a shining example of respect to President Bush in this situation.

      "same opportunity as Ms. Fluke to testify before Congress about a subject that that they too were committed to, without fear of reprisals, of being maligned or fear of being bullied."

      Ms. Fluke wants to take a front line role in the decisions made that affect the lives of 300 million people and she's worried about being called a rude name? I would think that someone in that position would be more thick-skinned. Perhaps she just saw an opportunity to make political hay.

      "what they value the most is not the American Voter but the sound of their own voices."

      Please explain.

    1. He has the right to speak. He can go to any public square or street corner and speak until he's hoarse. He does NOT have a constitutional right to speak on the radio or have sponsors. The sponsors have a right to look after their bottom line and if they feel he is detrimental to it, they have a right to pull their ads. Just like you have a right to boycott his sponsors. Just because you want to hear him, that does not mean it's in the constitution for him to be on the radio. Free speech just means they can't arrest you for saying what you want, it has nothing to do with making people listen to you.

  9. Yay! I'm so glad these retailers have stopped supporting an attention monger and misogynist like Rush. And look! No one had to legislate! This is what it looks like when the free market decides. Lesson: If you want to do business with people, there is a standard for behavior. It might be low, but it does exist! He had the freedom to behave badly, and the sponsors have the freedom to stop supporting him. Everyone is exercising their American Freedoms!

  10. I listen to Rush a lot as I think it's better to know one's enemies. I applaud the companies who have responded to his latest vile comments by dropping their sponsorship and I will begin to do business with them whereas I wouldn't go near them when they supported the so-called "EIB" network. His childish outburst about the show "being about you, not the sponsors" blah blah blah...and snidely suggesting his "dittoheads" no longer patronize those companies who dare defy the great master just highlights his true colors. He is a nasty, spiteful, mean-spirited coward. I personally hope there is no effort to stifle this fool as he is priceless for President Obama. Keep it up Rush!!

  11. Rush rude and disparaging comments about other people has been consistent over his his entire career. Anyone who thinks that the sponsors dropped Rush because of LIBERAL pressure is wrong. The remarks were some of the worst remarks I have heard on the radio and the sponsors were embarrassed about their association with Rush.

    3. I listen to Rush as well as watching Rachel Maddow and, from time to time, Keith Olbermann and Bill Mahr. Granted, Bill Mahr is sometimes vulgar and that's one reason I don't watch him much. You are wrong about the other two though. Rachel Maddow is EXTREMELY polite, well-spoken and, generally, respectful whoever her guests are. She interviews Republicans when she can and treats them fairly. She argues her point of view of course, but she NEVER resorts to filth like Limbaugh. Let's face it, if she did, she would be off the air. So please, don't just assume that because you disagree with a political commentator and therefore dislike them, that they act in the same shameful manner as Limbaugh.

    4. I am so sick of all the Hypocrisy. If it were someone you like or shared your views, you would be absolutely appalled that sponsers responded that way (or anyone else for that matter). But since is it was the big bad and scary Rush Limbaugh, you applaud the sponser. HIPOCRASY!!!!! If it's good for the gander, it's good for the goose. If the left has the freedom to say whatever they want, why can't the right any freedom? Go ahead, punish Rush Limbaugh for what the comments he makes. But you should pay close attention to what the people who listen to/watch and take note every time they make a derogatory comment then do the same with Rush and THEN you decide who the real monsters are!

  12. These companies will NEVER see money from us again. Democrats have said far worse, and I don't see them apologizing or losing sponsors. These companies have made a huge mistake for which they don't yet see. As far as Ms. Fluke goes, how DARE she ask us taxpayers to pay to support her promiscuous behavior!! Rush was right about her, of course, but he has the pay the consequence.

    1. You sound just like Rush (and that's NOT a compliment). How do you know Ms Fluke engages in promiscuous behavior? Most women use contraception at some time in their lives for birth control; many use it for other medical issues. By your logic this makes them all promiscuous! Furthermore, the issue is not whether we taxpayers are paying "to support her promiscuous behavior" since the whole point is that birth control be a component of health insurance plans, the premiums for which are paid for by the user! Why has the right-wing been allowed to distort this?

    2. I'm curious about something here. I assume that Catholic run organizations such as those who, we are led to believe, are under such vicious attack, are consistent in their values and DO NOT provide health insurance for divorcees. After all, in the eyes of God, and therefore the Catholic church, only the first marriage "counts". "For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth. . . . So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress" (Romans 7:2-3). Can anyone tell me whether health insurance policies for married couples and their families provided by Catholic institutions cover adulteresses and their offspring?

      Delete
    3. It's not about birth control it's about freedom of religion. The government can't force a religion to pay for something that they don't believe in. The liberals like to change the topic because they have no argument.

      Delete
    4. I'll repeat my question. Does the Catholic church and its associated organizations provide health coverage for divorcees and their offspring? If so then they, as a religion, are breaking a central tenet of their own religion.

    1. You, like Rush, clearly don't understand how contraceptive pills work so I would suggest that you not only attend some sort of school where you learn some manners and how not to behave like a boorish pig, but you also get some biology lessons. Contraception in the form of hormone pills costs the same whether one has sex once a year or 10 times a day. And please, let's quit using the tired lame aspirin "joke". It merely reinforces what neanderthals many of Rush's dittoheads truly are.

    2. I would like to know what kind of birth control pills cost around $83.12 per month??? Planned Parenthood gives them out for free and the government already gives them money...Why would anyone really want their private business aired to millions of people??

  22. This list of companies, 5 of which I have used in the last 3 months and 2 I was considering are now on my boycott list.

    You companies want to play the politics of nonsense game, you will pay the price.

  23. Funny how his asnine remarks and the subsequent fall out has all you GOP folks in such a huff. How does it feel women of the GOP to know that Rush thinks your a whore if you get BC from your insurance but pats your impotent prick husbands on the back as they walk out of the pharmacy with their script for viagra? I guess that double standard is still firmly intact. I mean seriously I don't remember there being a clause that said it was the right of men to be able to get an erection well into their 70's in the constitution, bill or rights or the decleration of independence. This is just another case of what's good for the gander isn't good for the goose. Keep doing a good job at screwing yourselves and we (us libs) won't have to worry about you much longer because you will take just enough rope to hang yourselves.

  24. I have copied this list off and have it pinned on the corkboard, all under the headline "Companies to Never Do Business With Again". This is a good thing. Had I known before that these companies were so anti-constitutional, I never would have given them money before. Also I see JCPenny has come out against free speech as well. I am adding them to the list.

  25. I just love it how the "dittoheads" get all holier-than-thou when a few advertizers who have supported their idol for years pull the plug when he makes comments that are so awful as to make normal human beings blanche! You just can't stand it when someone (in this case some businesses) dare even question the great "MahaRushi" (or whatever stupid name he calls himself these days). Of course he is just a "harmless lovable little fuzzball" who tells you all what to think and when it doesn't go exactly to plan you all get your knickers in a twist and pontificate about "freedom". Well I for one applaud these companies and will do business with them for having the good taste to withdraw their support from a show that at best can be described as a childish parody of political commentary.

  27. As effective or perhaps more so would be a list of those sponsors who did not drop their advertising, and broadly circulated for all to see so they might act accordingly.

  31. The list is up to 50 now, which is a figure just short of Obama's approval rating. I don't know what's worse the GOP war on women's rights or their fat head poster boys personal war. Can't say I like Obama, but anything's better than a constitution trashing Republican.

  32. Such Venom...
    This entire topic is not about women's freedom of choice for birth control pills.. It is about religious rights...
    People working for and attending these institutions know the stand on birth control when they enter into the agreement. Why subject yourselves to something you are obviously against? Go elsewhere.
    As per this case... students graduating from this institution will be part of the horrible 1% in America....starting out with three digit incomes... Birth control is free or under 10.00 at box stores. Where is the complaint, really...
    Yes, Rush's description was surprising... but why in the world is this woman making an issue of something which could have totally been prevented if they were smart enough to seek the almost free pills. Sounds as they they weren't using any common sense...Intelligent people sometime have very little common sense, and, unfortunately, you cannot study for that.

  33. To those who think this is all about religious freedom; Georgetown University already offers contraceptive coverage as a part of its benefits for employees, but not for students. How's that for HYPOCRISY!

  34. I can flip the coin; BECAUSE you share Rush Limbaugh's political views, you are appalled by the sponsors who have dropped him, however, if sponsors dropped say Rachel Maddow (who is about as polite and innocuous as one can get) you would applaud wildly. So yes, what's good for the goose IS good for the gander, but in this case the gander (Maddow) has NEVER been as offensive as this particular goose! I know you will disagree but that's because you're a fan of Rush. However, I bet I have listened to Rush more than you have watched Rachel. I despise the man yet I find him fascinating, hence I have listened regularly since 1991. Remember his side-splitting story about shaking a mouse to death in a trash can? His tales about sending out for taxis when he was younger, and watching the hilarious results when the poor taxi entrepreneurs wasted their time on wild goose chases. Remember him insulting Chelsea Clinton when she was 14 and had acne? Have you seen the way she looks??? I REMEMBER. I remember these and many other things from listening to the great "Rushbo" for over 20 years, and what I realized many years ago is that this is an egocentric, selfish unpleasant man.

    Just so that you are aware, I also find Rush is exactly as you say "an egocentric, selfish unpleasant man." (If you look again, you will notice that I never once defended his character or what he has said/done). I am not appalled that the sponsors dropped him - it is their right to do so in our Country. What I am appalled by is the fact that when it comes to "free speech", the terms aren't equal for all people/parties. Many people continuously attack those that they don't care for (whether it be fueled by different political views or whatever else their reasons may be) but when the roles are reversed, they will do ANYTHING in their power to make excuses for the ones they like or agree with. That is the hypocrisy in which I speak.

    I applaud you, for being able to stay so equally involved with the various talk shows. I just hope that you are able to watch/listen unbiased and are able to form your own opinions. I don’t have the time or energy to be that involved – I have a toddler to raise, pets to care for, a household to run and a family to keep healthy/happy. Yes, I listen to Rush and some other personalities on the radio, but I don’t get much opportunity as I only listen to them when I am in my car. We don’t have cable or satellite television because it is too expensive and unnecessary (our viewing options are limited to local news channels and PBS) – especially since we listen to music and read more than we watch television. So, I am not familiar with any of the talk show personalities that are on Television.

    You could say that I am just making excuses about why I don't fully indulge in the land of talk shows and I can accept that because, in part, it is an excuse – I’m sure I could neglect one or two of my responsibilities (or bills for that matter) to indulge. But, I am an individual and have never tolerated anyone trying to think for me - while talk shows may involve facts; they also include the opinions of the personalities involved. I like my thoughts to be mine - not generated for the masses. And, yes, when my opinions, choices and political views are all listed, one could call me a Republican or Conservative (which is not insulting). However, a political party/title doesn't define ME or what I stand for/believe in – and I definitely do not vote based on what party a candidate belongs to (I choose the candidate that best fits with what I believe in – not always Republicans). I was raised to think for myself, think freely and to form my own opinion - I am so grateful to my father for this. I was also raised to have pretty high morals/values and those morals/values are what guide me in my beliefs and help me make my choices. My dad believes in people forming their own decisions and he gave me the freedom to do just that – and trust me, we have had heated debates over our difference in opinions, but he still allowed me to become my own person. He even allowed me to make my own choice and form my own opinions about Religion and God.

    In the end, I am just sick of Hypocrisy as a whole. You can continue to think that I defended what Rush said, but that’s not what I was doing (read it again, if you must) – I was arguing against hypocrisy. It just so happens that on this webpage, the discussion is over Rush Limbaugh and the sponsors that backed away from him. By the way, please note I never once said the sponsors were wrong in removing their ads – I actually believe in true freedom instead of the illusion of it.

    1. FEDUP;

      I really appreciate the time you took to so thoughtfully reply to my comments about Rush, Rachel, etc. It's nice to read something that is more than simply a rant. Despite what my comments imply I don't spend my entire life following political talkshows. I actually work from home while looking after the house and 3 year old twins plus an 8 year old, so I too have my hands full. Most of my Rush listening was in the past, when I worked in a lab and his show was on a lot; now I tend to listen to him when I am driving so I miss much of what he has to say. I did hear his comments about Sandra Fluke as he uttered them though, and of course after his first comments, listening the next day and the next became fascinating as he dug his hole deeper and deeper.

      Regarding this business of hypocrisy I really think one sees it differently depending on which side of the political spectrum one is on. I honestly don't know what my reaction would be if Rachel Maddow said something as derogatory and insulting as Rush did; however, my point is that she is way too classy and intelligent to say something like that. Despite what some on the conservative side might say, she in particular has, to my knowledge, NEVER stooped so low. Ed Schultz did and promptly apologized, grovelled even, and requested that he be suspended and have his salary taken away. What he said about Laura Ingraham was truly appalling but he apologized in as honest and forthright a manner as possible. Rush didn't. As for Bill Mahr I rarely watch him as we don't subscribe to HBO, but I cringe when I hear some of the things he has said about conservatives such as Sarah Palin and if HBO kicked him out for such utterances I would accept that as a consequence of his acting so disgustingly rudely.

      From what you have written, one thing I think you and I can agree on is that this sort of language is unneccessary whoever uses it. One thing; you certainly don't have to make excuses for not indulging in talk shows! I think anyone is better off listening to music and reading rather than immersing themselves in endless political punditry.

  41. I was pleased to see the list of companies that ran for cover when the liberal media complained about Rush being mean to an activist who was there to promote her cause. Rush may have let his passion get the best of him, but at least he apologized to the activist for using those words in describing her activity. The left uses the most caustic language to describe those that it hates, without any outrage from the liberals who accuse the right of hating anyone they disagree with. The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. To help those companies who left Rush's show know which way the wind blows we will spend our money elsewhere. God Bless America and the Free market system
