The Power Of The Consumer...
Quicken Loans representatives were busy on their Facebook page, Sunday Night, 'quicky' and publicly stating they no longer advertise with Rush Limbaugh. Their ads have been tracked by StopRush since April 2012, and hundreds, possibly thousands, of concerned consumers, and FlushRush volunteers, have been writing the company, asking them to remove their ads from Rush Limbaugh's show.

This is a big win for the StopRush/FlushRush folks who recently celebrated one year of success. [http://www.dailykos.com/...]

Early Sunday evening, the public contact information for Quicken Loans was posted on the Facebook group page called, 'Boycott Rush Limbaugh Sponsors To Shut Him Down' https://www.facebook.com/...  Some of the group's members began contacting the company. This time, within minutes, Quicken Loans responded with, "We do not advertise on or sponsor Rush Limbaugh's show." A more accurate statement would be, "We no longer advertise on or sponsor Rush Limbaugh's show." (We assume they mean it this time)

Below are a few of Sunday's comments from Quicken Loans to consumers on Facebook. In their responses below and on their Facebook page, one might be led to believe they 'never' advertised with Limbaugh, or 'they didn't know' and would 'look in to it'. At least 75 ad reports were documented by StopRush to prove otherwise. Here is a bit of Quicken Loans' advertising history documented in the StopRush database: http://stoprush.net/... proving they are, and were, very aware of their ads.

Not sure why Quicken thinks it is important to advertise on Rush Limbaugh's show, as controversial as he is. The two are linked for me though.

And you support Rush Limbaugh? Really? You sure don't want any customers, then. Or was that a mistake you are correcting . . .

Get rid of Rush Limbaugh. He is a divisive force in American life. To say he is a revolting pig insults hogs. Do not support his druggy lifestyle. Boot him!

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
