Rush Limbaugh is feeling the heat, as advertisers abandon his hate machine.
After he was recently picked up by WOR, longtime advertisers on the station began objecting to having their products and services affiliated with Rush.
On Friday a Mexican-American Flush Rush volunteer contacted a WOR advertiser called Page Publishing to politely request that they not advertise on the Rush Limbaugh Show.
She specifically objected to Limbaugh’s characterization of Mexicans as being lazy by nature.
The response she received will make your day:
I am the president of Page Publishing, and I could not agree with you more. He is a disgusting, misogynistic racist. We have been advertising with WOR for quite a while, but they only recently added this moron’s program to their lineup, and we were assured that our ads would not inadvertently run during his show. Thanks for pointing out that it did (I don’t have the stomach to listen to his show to verify if our ads do run). I will insist that our ads never run during his bigoted show. It amazes me that his show has any audience at all here in New York City- a progressive and liberal place if ever there was one (the place where I was born and raised, and a place that is amazing in its diversity).
Your email reached me because the staff here universally despises Limbaugh and everything he stands for, and they know of my feelings as well. The ironic things about most of the nonsense that he spews, in particular his references to Mexicans and Mexican-Americans, is that there probably isn’t a harder working group of people in the nation right now.
He has the right to say what he wants, and we have the right to refuse to support him with our corporate advertising dollars.
Thanks for the email,
President and CEO
Page Publishing, Inc.
