  •  What's the word on Domino's? (0+ / 0-)

    They were listed as an advertiser in some of the earlier reports, but since then have stated they do not advertise on his show. But Domino's has a ton of franchisees, some of them quite large. I'm wondering if some of them are doing local advertising tied to the show? If so, this should be called to the attention of the parent company, with the suggestion they prod them into doing the right thing.

      They love Rush Limbaugh and agree with everything he says and does.

      No use wasting time with them.

        I knew that Dominos was founded and originally owned by Tom Monaghan who is a right-wing Santorum type except maybe even worse (he tried to create a town that would have only like-minded people living there and in which all the businesses would be restricted so that nothing that disagreed with his right wing views would be allowed into this town. It failed).
        I also heard he sold Dominos, so we stopped boycotting it.
        But I just read this on Wikipedia:

        In 1998, after 38 years of ownership, Domino's Pizza founder Tom Monaghan announced his retirement and sold 93 percent of the company to Bain Capital, Inc. for about $1 billion and ceased being involved in day-to-day operations of the company.

    •  got a very prompt reply (0+ / 0-)

      saying they do not advertise on RL's show.  Got 2 messages actually.  

      •  same here, but... (0+ / 0-)

        That's the parent company. With lots of franchises, some of them quite large. Since they were originally listed as an advertiser in many reports, I have to wonder if it wasn't the franchises running the ads in their local markets - which, as other posters have noted, is where the big advertising bucks are.
