MSNBC’s Strategist, Steve Schmidt, is the only Republican to speak the truth about Rush Limbaugh's vicious attack upon the young female Georgetown University student, Sandra Fluke whose testimony (her opinion) on why Insurance Companies should pay for birth control, giving several references on other students who needed this type of medication for health concerns other than birth control. Because of this she was maniacally attacked by the professional bully Rush Limbaugh, which went on for 3 days on his daily radio broadcast that goes out to his Dittohead listeners... Limbaugh is losing advertisers but still remains on the air to annihilate anyone and everyone who dares to speak out against injustice, if it happens to go against his far rightwing opinions. Please watch the youtube video that shows there is one brave and truthful Republican out there in Rightwing land that is unafraid of Limbaugh and has spoken out against this bully. thinkingblue



The Pied Piper himself,

Rush Limbaugh, dismissed reports of dozens of advertisers pulling their commercials from his show, telling listeners, “Everything is fine on the business side. Everything’s cool. There is not a thing to worry about.”

Limbaugh, citing claims he had lost {over} 28 sponsors, said that is “out of 18,000. That’s like losing a couple of french fries in the container when it’s delivered to you in the drive thru. You don’t even notice it.”

Talk Radio Losing Advertisers In Wake Of Limbaugh Scandal

    The overwhelming exodus of advertisers from Rush Limbaugh's show has big-name companies rethinking their relationship with talk radio.

    According to a memo published by the industry website Radio-Info.com, at least 98 advertisers -- including big names like Ford, GM and McDonald's -- have indicated they want to avoid "environments likely to stir negative sentiments."
    Here's an excerpt of the memo, as published on Radio-Info.com:
    "To all Traffic Managers: The information below applies to your Premiere Radio Networks commercial inventory. More than 350 different advertisers sponsor the programs and services provided to your station on a barter basis. Like advertisers that purchase commercials on your radio station from your sales staff, our sponsors communicate specific rotations, daypart preferences and advertising environments they prefer…

    They’ve specifically asked that you schedule their commercials in dayparts or programs free of content that you know are deemed to be offensive or controversial (for example, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Tom Leykis, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity). Those are defined as environments likely to stir negative sentiment from a very small percentage of the listening public."  READ MORE: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

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.
