    Dial Global: Rush Limbaugh's Sandra Fluke Rants Hurt Our Radio Business

    I doubt he helped anyone's business and, daily, does enormous harm to our country. OTOH, there are those who just eat up his hate and anger. They literally feed on it and then spew it out. Many many more see him for what he really is - low life scum with a huge mouth.

    He has the right to lie - such as his lie about Ms. Fluke. And, the rest of us have the right to learn the truth about his lies.

    To each their own.

    You cant defend limbaugh's constant lies, so you attack someone else.

    Exactly what I expected.

    If Limbaugh was the problem they could have dropped him. They are trying to get sympathy from idiots.

    It worked, obviously.

    Rush is still on the radio? How can that possibly be? I recall distinctly all the gleeful threads in here that his comments about Flake were the last straw, that he was over and done with because of all the many many many advertisers that had or would be abandoning him shortly...

    Meanwhile, here in our market he continues everyday with the same amount of commercial breaks as always. A couple of big national advertisers did bolt but others stepped in immediately to fill the gaps and take advantage of his huge listening audience, most notably Carbonite was replaced by its competitor LifeLock.

    Carbonite stock plummets after decision to abandon Limbaugh Update: Limbaugh clears up misinformation about his “lost” sponsors
    posted at 3:05 pm on March 7, 2012 by Tina Korbe

    Investors have fled Carbonite like Carbonite fled Rush Limbaugh, but, as they say, correlation is not causation, so it’s impossible to know for sure whether Carbonite’s stock has plummeted because the back-up company withdrew its support for the top talker — or just because. Nevertheless, the facts are what they are:

    Since the market opened on Monday through its close [yesterday], Carbonite stock (NASDAQ: CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points. It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday.

    Clear channel had a sell off at the time of the Fluke comments as well, but is recovering just fine, thanks. Sounds like a management issue to me.
