Moments ago, Carbonite – a company providing backup software for computers – announced that it will no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s show. CEO David Friend made clear in a Facebook statement that, despite Limbaugh’s “apology” issued tonight, the company was still pulling its ads...Limbaugh has several million devoted listeners, and they are his greek chorus. But there are many times the number of his listeners who think of him as a vile-pig. Ultimately, if you are associated with a vile pig, the public at large is going to think less of you. But, as in this whole matter, Republican politicians do not know how to react. Their default position is to kiss his gigantic physical and metaphorical ass.
No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.
