Rush Limbaugh: Army USPS Pull Ads: 141 Advertisers Gone? Remove Rush from Armed Services Network

If you’ve had any musings about what is happening to the thoughts and minds of our Military leaders, this will give you reason to dredge it up again. The Army has pulled their ads from Limbaugh, as has the United States Postal Service. There is a move…again, to try to take Rush’s program off of the Armed Services Network.

A memo being circulated by the distribution company behind Republican shock jock Rush Limbaugh has revealed a massive flight from Limbaugh’s program in the wake of his offensive comments about a Georgetown law student.

The companies include major corporate players like Sony, British Petroleum, McDonald’s, NBC, Toyota, Subway, Lowes, Autozone, Geico, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, State Farm, IBM and many others….

Even Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), who chairs the Armed Services Committee, was leaned on by activists calling for Limbaugh to be taken off the Armed Forces Network. Levin said he would like to see Limbaugh off the network as well, but the Pentagon has not yet initiated a review. Levin added that Congress should not get involved, saying that he hopes the administrators of the Armed Forces Network will see just how offensive Limbaugh’s is and take it off the air.

In all, 141 advertisers have left Limbaugh’s show so far, but just 50 were known before the memo surfaced. It shows that 91 additional companies have ditched not just Limbaugh, but right-wing radio talkers altogether, including Limbaugh acolytes Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. Limbaugh is often cited as the unofficial voice of the Republican Party. Source: The Raw Story

Lefties have long tried to get Limbaugh off the Armed Forces Network.

  • Amex didn’t pull its ads. Prof. Jacobson wrote to them to confirm, it’s simply not true. But it’s confirmed that Ford did:

    • edge of sandbox, thanks for that. I really think many of the names on the list, even some of the big ones, have never advertised on Rush. I have him on everyday, and while I may not hear everything, many I have never heard advertise there.

      What is Ford thinking. I’ve heard Rush champion them many time. Thanx for the info!

    Why does the post office waste money advertising? Even the stupidest liberal knows what the post office does and where the nearest one is located.
