Has Rush Limbaugh Finally Gone Too Far? [POLL]
What’s up with Rush Limbaugh? The radio host has once again opened his mouth and inserted his foot. Limbaugh caused a huge uproar when he called a Georgetown college student, Sandra Fluke, 30, a “slut” and “prostitute” and said she should post her sex videos online so he could watch. Limbaugh blasted Fluke after she testified before Democratic congressional representatives in support of national health care policies that would force all employers — including her Catholic-affiliated university — to cover birth control for women.
And as a result of Rush’s comments, his radio show is losing advertisers right and left. According to the Associated Press:
So far, at least seven advertisers have at least temporarily pulled away from the show, including ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems Inc., online data backup service provider Carbonite and online legal document services company LegalZoom.
As of today, Rush can add to the list of sponsors dropping like flies — AOL. Rush issued an apology for his remarks to Fluke, but she’s not buying it.
