My original email sent yesterday:

It has just come to my attention that
Sears is continuing to advertise on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

I am sure I need not remind you of his recent slanderous attacks on
Georgetown College Student Sandra Fluke. He has crossed the line here
and regardless of his "apology", he insulted this young woman no less
than 52 times in a period of 3 days, with some very vile language.

I can no longer afford to do business with any business that advertises
on the Rush Limbaugh Show. I hope you do the right thing for your brand
and cease any association with his hatefilled program. I don't want to
leave Sears as a customer.

Their response:
Dear Customer,

Thank you for contacting Sears.com.

Sears and Kmart did not buy media or sponsorships on the Rush Limbaugh
show.  It is possible that a station incorrectly ran one of our ads on
or adjacent to the show, but we would need to know the market and day to
determine this.  Sears Holdings does not purchase media based on
political affiliations or views.

So there you have it, Sears does NOT advertise on the Rush Limbaugh Show.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
