As predicted, Rush Limbaugh is not backing down from his diatribes against "Feminazis" and the entire female gender. In particular, he continues to taunt Sandra Fluke, a 23 y.o. Law student, who as it turns out has a quiet dignity about her, to go along with her intelligence, compassion for others, and a good measure of courage (and toughness!)
Limbaugh mocked the president's statement to Ms. Fluke (when he telephoned her earlier today!) that her parents should be very proud of her. At first Limbaugh (purposely?) got her name wrong (when he called her a slut and a prostitute), today it was her age (he said she was 30), and he's yet to come anywhere close to what she actually discussed in her testimony (her friend who lost her ovary as she was unable to afford the birth control she was prescribed by her doctor.
Needless to say, there was no apology.

Rush Limbaugh Boycott: Reddit, Twitter, Facebook Users Take Part

The Internet has taken aim at Rush Limbaugh.

The inflammatory conservative political commentator and host of talk radio program The Rush Limbaugh Show set off a firestorm on Wednesday with his outrageous comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who was barred from testifying last week before an all-male panel during a House of Representatives hearing on religious freedom and the Obama administration's contraception policy. Limbaugh on Wednesday called Fluke a "slut" and on Thursday said, "If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we [...] want you to post the videos online so we can all watch."

On Friday morning, HuffPost blogger Krystal Ball called for a boycott of companies that sponsor the Limbaugh show. Participating Twitter users are rallying around the hashtag #BoycottRush, and two Facebook pages calling for a boycott had garnered more than 18,000 and 6,000 Likes by Saturday morning.

As a retired radio group VP with years of station management on my resume, here is a better suggestion. Go after the local advertisers on his show. There are very few local advertising availabilities on Rush’s show and they sell at a premium. Monitor the Rush station, make a list of the local advertisers and do the following:

1. Call the advertiser, be polite.
2. Write a letter to the advertiser, be polite.
3. Copy the station and the FCC with the advertiser letter.
4. Politely call the General Manager of the station,tell the GM what you are doing and why, tell them you have contacted the advertiser and copied the FCC.
5. If the local advertiser uses an agency, contact the agency, as well.Just ask the local business, if they use an agency.

It won’t take many letters and phone calls to get their attention and remind the station that the letters need to be placed in the station’s public file.(the public file is an FCC requirement)

Local stations don’t get many local avails in Rush’s show and many pay a huge fee to Premire to run the show.If they start losing business because of that asshole, they will raise hell with Premire.

If KFI in LA got a hundred letters with follow up phone calls it would get their attention very quickly. The key is to put on the pressure through the local advertisers.

Rush isn’t going anywhere, he isn’t going to apologize. The local station will blink and get very nervous, very quickly.

Like the guy who posted this thread, I am a WAMC employee based out of Albany, NY. It's about time we politically neutralize Mr. Limbaugh. Our 2,000 regular listeners might swell to 2,006 if we are successful.

GET LIMBAUGH OFF THE AIR, YEAH!

Telling lies, distorting the facts and making it up as we go is the ticket. Yeah!

There is an interesting invention called the Knob. You can simply turn and Rush goes away.

You don't have to listen to him.

I personally don't like the man but I will defend his right to free speech. I may not like what he has to say but I'll defend his right to say it.

The only apology there should be is from your mother for birthing you. Good luck with your stupid adventure here.

That is true but unfortunately so many fall into his way of thinking and slandering of others. We really need to stop this negative portrayal of people even if we're right. Rush gives those that believe in Great Spirit and wish not to judge or convict anyone a black eye. Religion, mainly Muslims and Christians needs a new approach and they better find it pretty soon. It would help immensely if we all started thinking like and observing our Native Indian brothers and sisters.

Pretty funny thread.
In case you are interested, Limbaugh's listenership is climbing not declining.
More advertisers will invariably line up to replace anyone Limbaugh loses.
WAMC Northeast Public Radio, Inc.'s listenership is in the tank generally, but from 12 Noon to 3 p.m. weekdays, it decreases even moreso.
Limbaugh OWNS the Albany radio market weekdays from 12-3.
DEAL WITH IT!

Because so many like yourself are too focused on them when in fact the greatest genocide known to man happened right here in the good ol US of A. Haven't you heard?
