The StopRush Project, which combines the efforts of several activist groups like FlushRush, is stronger than ever.
Limbaugh's parent company, Clear Channel has reported massive losses in the hundreds of millions, though it's doubtful they will ever attribute their losses to the the sponsor boycott. However, Media Matters reported this week, that Cumulus CEO, Lew Dickey, admits to feeling the pain. This is due to the thousands of consumers who are monitoring radio stations nationwide, reporting sponsors heard, and contacting sponsors.
Most of the exiting sponsors, (in the thousands) have communicated to StopRush members, they were pulling ads. Others like the larger companies below, 'slip out silently' so they don't bring on the wrath of the Limbaugh Dittoheads (a self-proclaimed name).
Most don't care how Limbaugh sponsors leave; They're just happy to see more companies denouncing the hate, racism, sexism and gay-bashing bigotry that spews out of Limbaugh's mouth daily. Thus, the companies below are victories for the boycott movement and the thousands of consumers who continue to prevail and prove their buying power rules, because:
It's not about the money. It's about the MONEY.
Cheers to all who continue to fight hate speech and hate radio. And many thanks to the larger organizations like, UniteWomen.org, Being Liberal and Media Matters... who have greatly supported this movement.
