Now we know why RushBo apologized, he’s hemorrhaging advertisers and some of them are not buying his notpology from Friday. Here’s the CEO of one his largest, Carbonite:
(FB) — “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 We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”
Better late than never. But it’s always a little tragic when someone suddenly discovers the entire modern right-wing edifice is built on a house of cards cemented with cruelty to the defenseless, the poor, and the sick.
