    Not because it was Limbaugh, but many orgs are going to take a very dim view of being named in some other company's ads. It implies an endorsement that is not necessarily there, and trades on the good name of the the objecting organization. My career has been mostly in nnon-profits, and most I know would go ballistic and copy their lawyers as well, in similar circumstances. No matter what show the ad was playing on.

      THey could have just modified the ads as described in the first response.

      However, maybe it's because it was too difficult to modify the ads in a timely manner to get them off the air?

      Whatever.  Glad to hear any good news, even if it's not directly intentional.
