UPDATE 5/14/13:  On the eve of Cumulus Media's quarterly earnings call with investors, news outlets reported that Limbaugh's distribution deal with the company--which carries his show on 40 radio stations, including Limbaugh's flagship WABC in New York--may be coming to an end due to ongoing advertising losses.  Click here for an update with the latest details on how Limbaugh continues to be bad for business.

UPDATE 8/15/12:
  Last week, a major radio station group carrying The Rush Limbaugh Show, Cumulus Media, reported millions of dollars in losses attributable to Limbaugh's ongoing advertiser troubles. During a call with investors, Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey acknowledged Limbaugh’s “drag” on business. Read the full update here.


On February 23, 2012, Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke testified before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee regarding the impact of new health care regulations on expanding contraception coverage. Her point - that a prescription medication used to treat a wide variety of women's health issues should be covered by health insurance - was lost on Rush Limbaugh, who took the opportunity to use his radio platform to viciously and personally attack her repeatedly over several days.

Since those attacks, dozens of advertisers have left his show and more than one hundred others have refused future association. But even in the face of this public outcry, Limbaugh has not changed his behavior and continues with his standard misogynistic and hateful language. You can take action now by signing up for our Stop Rush Updates.
