The Political Animal blog posts Limbaugh’s Advertisers: The Dead Enders:
ThinkProgress has been able to confirm only two advertisers that are still sticking with Rush Limbaugh. One is Lear Capital, one of those peddlers of gold coins common on talk radio. The other is an identity theft protection company called Lifelock. Turns out Lifelock has a rap sheet with the FTC, having paid $12 million in 2010 to settle false claims charges.
Interestingly, one person is in the least liked top three for all three political parties. For Republicans, the three least liked current affairs personalities are Nancy Grace (25%), Rush Limbaugh (24%) and Chris Matthews (18%). For Democrats, the three news personalities that are the least favorite are Rush Limbaugh (66%), Bill O’Reilly (45%), and Sean Hannity (23%) while for Independents it is Rush Limbaugh (49%), Bill O’Reilly (31%) and Nancy Grace (25%).
Sandra Fluke was a guest on ABC's The View on Monday morning. She stated that Rush Limbaugh has not called her personally to apologize. "And let me be clear that I think his statements that he has made about me on the air have been personal enough so that I would rather not have a personal phone call from him."
"I don't think that a statement like this issued saying that his "choice of words was not the best" changes anything. And especially when that statement is issued when he is under significant pressure from his sponsors who have begun to pull their support from the show."
