AOL Rush Limbaugh
March 6, 2012 by staff
AOL Rush Limbaugh, The fallout from Rush Limbaugh’s tirade over the Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke, who Limbaugh so eloquently called a “prostitute” and a “sl*t,” continued with the boycott of yet another sponsor, the 12th to take themselves off his show.
This time it’s Internet giant AOL who today on released this statement on its Facebook page:
“At AOL one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values. As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show.”
Even though he apologized for the comments Limbaugh is still hemorrhaging sponsors. AOL is the 12th advertiser to pulled out of his show. The others are AllState, Pro Flowers, Bonobos, Sears, Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Tax Resolution Services, Citrix Systems Inc., Carbonite, and Legal Zoom. Limbaugh’s show was also dropped by two radio stations today: one in Hawaii and one in Massachusetts.
While those advertisers and radio stations may be worth something, I’m sure some of you are thinking: “So what if AOL drops Limbaugh? It’s AOL. Do people even still use AOL?”
