(Huffington Post)   The Rush Limbaugh boycott has obviously failed. There are at least two nationally advertising sponsors who don't have standing orders to not broadcast their spots on his show   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 102

Yes, I know -obvious.
 
2013-05-08 04:15:31 PM  
I won't be satisfied until they include Glenn Beck as well.

I can wait. Awhile.
 
2013-05-08 04:17:23 PM  
Sorry, but Limbaugh not being an OxyContin abuser seems far more plausible.
 
2013-05-08 04:17:57 PM  
My commiepinko bleeding heart bleeds for him.
Not really.

I mean, this is America, so blubber away, Rush- but it looks like we're all tired of the dial just sitting at eleven.

Free market and Democracy for everything I like!
Regulations and Fascism for everything
I don't!

You won't get rid of Limbaugh.  He likes living in the limelight, it's his universal dream.
 
2013-05-08 04:24:04 PM  
Rush should quit before this gets more embarrassing for him. Retire, move to the DR.

He has plenty of money. I've seen his house in Palm Beach.
 
2013-05-08 04:27:05 PM  
He's been a reckless, narcisistic shiatbag since the 90s.  I find it hard to believe all these people just suddenly woke up to that fact and decided to pull back their business.

I'd love to see him relegated to obscurity.  But I don't see it happening.

I'm desperately lacking in gold and catheters, so his advertising is relevant to my interests.

Yeah this has probably more to do with the exponentially increasing rate that his audience is dying of old age than his "offensive" material.

Fun fact: Rush LImbaugh is in a GIS for "Dominican boy". Now I'm going to go ahead and clear my browser history.

Precisely.
 
2013-05-08 04:49:22 PM  
I listened to a bit of his show today. The only national advertiser I heard was for some machine to make your own soda at home. The rest were local lawyers advertising for BP claimants.

There is no friggin way his show is pulling in anywhere near the ad revenue it was a year ago. Someone had got to be taking a bath on his contract, and I doubt its Limbaugh. So its probably his syndicator.
 
2013-05-08 04:50:29 PM  
The liberals hate him because he's a bigot who uses lies and fallacies   The conservatives hate him because though they believe his lies and fallacies  they blame him for Romney's loss.
 
2013-05-08 04:50:51 PM  
I don't believe that story.  I'll wait to see Unskewed-Advertisers-List first before drawing my opinion.

Study it out people!

I was just going to comment that we do not know if advertisers were abandoning Limbaugh already before the boycott and then I decided to focus on the big story here, the death or right wing talk radio. I'm curious how other talking head types are doing these days.
 
2013-05-08 04:54:43 PM  
We should buy an ad that is hilarious.

Overall its days -- or maybe years -- are numbered. The vast majority of people who listen to talk radio are men well north of 50. In ten years or so a lot of the audience will start dying off. That doesn't matter much for Limbaugh, who is already 62, but some of the younger guys like Hannity and Beck who are not in the twilight of their careers are going to have a rough time down the road.

Better make that the mid-80s.

He replaced Morton Downey, Jr. in the Sacramento market back in 1984.

Blessed be the memory of our Lord and Savior, Ronald Reagan, for ridding us of The Fairness Doctrine and giving this asshole the career he so richly deserved.

I think it should be an ad that not-too-subtly pushes sex tourism in the DR.

Visit the Dominican Republic. Because in the Dominican Republic, what comes, and where you come, stays in the Dominican Republic. Especially if its in the rectum of a young boy

holeinthedonut: So who are the last 2 companies that support that gasbag? I want to make sure to boycott all of them.


Probably the "Buy gold because the the dollar is going to crash". So they don't give a shiat if you don't buy their stuff because you're not an idiot who would in the first place.

I'm guessing they're companies who sell things like guns, gold, and blood sugar test strips.  You're probably not in their targeted audience, anyway.

I actually remember when he didn't buy his own hype, back in the caller abortion days.

/what he said
 
2013-05-08 05:05:25 PM  
Yeah depending how cheap the ads are for his show I might consider taking one out. "Attention: are you old? Are you white? Then you need to know about "Puppet's youth potion" a miracle formula that Obama's FDA doesn't want you know about because you're white. But for only $49.95 we will deliver the secret of youth straight to YOUR DOOR. That's not including a $20 shipping and handling charge that ensures that no union thugs will be involved in the delivery of your item. Oh, and the bottle has gold lettering so it's good forever! And if you're one of the first 5000 callers, we will say a prayer for you straight to Gods ears! You can't put a price on that! $69.95! Call now!"

Rush:  Starting in Arlington Virginia this is Seth.  Welcome sir, nice to have you on the EIB network, hello.

"Seth":  Thank you Rush.  I'm lookin' at this and I'm seeing two adults exchanging ... well, actually seven if there were six women ... exchanging pictures in a consensual way.   And I guess it's none of my business.  It was none of the reporter's business.  It's none of anybody else's business.  How is this different ... I mean you're talking about how "smart" everybody is, you talk about how smart you are every day ... but, how is this different from you going to, you know the sexual tourist destination of Dominican Republic with a bottle of Viagra and having that sprayed all over the headlines.  How did you like that?  Why is this different?

Rush:  Well, but ... what you describe about me isn't true.  And I guess what you're suggesting here is that getting caught having sex affairs is only stupid when Republicans do it.

Funny, because originally he didn't deny it. He just decided not to say much about it. Now magically it's not true.

Funny it's not true since their is actual legal documents that support how it is true.

Yeah, I remember those days. I moved to Sac in the late 80', when Rush was still a nobody on local AM radio, making fun of Rio Linda. I only knew about him because one of my coworkers always played his show on a small radio.
 
2013-05-08 05:14:12 PM  
Wait, is this a good time for me to buy advertising on Limbaugh's show? I missed out on the Glenn Beck window
 
2013-05-08 05:14:25 PM  
Autozone's still on there, yes? I started going to O'Reilly when they didn't pull their ads.
 
2013-05-08 05:14:49 PM  
His advertisers are the same as Beck's.  Just scams meant to bilk gullible old people out of their money........much like their shows.
 
2013-05-08 05:15:20 PM  
I think KOS are the only people keeping him in business

Fun fact: Necrophiliacs will sometimes insert a catheter into the urethra of a male corpse to simulate an erection.
 
If Rush can manage to appeal to the gold-hoarding necrophiliac demographic, he might actually manage to avoid losing all of his advertisers.
 
2013-05-08 05:17:09 PM  
Premiere hotly disputed the report, saying in a statement that it was "completely inaccurate," and adding, "A number of the top spenders in the medium use talk radio to promote their brands and sell product, and many of them use The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show as the driving force of their marketing efforts."
 
So name them.
 
2013-05-08 05:17:19 PM

I hope that gasbag hits ground and deflates quickly.

Oh that is awesome. The dude rambled around just long enough to get past the delay so Rush couldn't dump the call before it made it to air, then dropped his steaming load right in Rush's mouth. He knew exactly what he was doing.

Well done, guy.
