Update: At least 29 advertisers have now pulled their ads, as of the morning of March 7.
Two radio stations have dropped Rush Limbaugh’s show from their program schedules, according to The Huffington Post. Citing the fact that Limbaugh’s words—he called Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” had crossed a line, WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii announced Monday that they have dropped Limbaugh’s show.
The ultra conservative radio talk-show host’s offensive words were directed at Fluke—an American law student and women’s rights activist—because of her advocacy of insurance coverage of birth control. He has apologized, but the controversy sparked by his remarks rages on.
At least nine of Limbaugh’s former sponsors have cut ties with his top-rated show—with several doing so after he had apologized.
I bet that’s one rant Limbaugh wishes he had back.
