With advertisers on the run, should satellite radio step in and grab Rush Limbaugh?
The latest wrinkle in the ongoing controversy is the cancellation of all national commercials during “The Rush Limbaugh Show” by its syndicator, Premiere Networks.
This comes after nearly a hundred national advertisers and dozens more have dropped Limbaugh and other conservative commentators like a political hot potato.
The idea that the recent controversy could actually become “ the end of talk radio ” is a comment from Rush Limbaugh himself.
Over the past few weeks, Rush Limbaugh has been under fire for controversial remarks regarding a young law student and her support that her medical insurance should cover her birth control.
Since calling her a “slut” among other things, he has apologized for his comments yet at least one poll shows few people believe him and advertisers are still heading for the door.
A new campaign — with the Twitter hash tag #BulliedbyRush — spearheaded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan and Gloria Steinem, founders of the “Women’s Media Center” wants him off the air entirely.Page 1 of 4 | Next Page
