Some Rush Advertisers Begging To Come Back, Rush Tells Them To Pound Sand

I don't listen to Rush.

 

I don't like his style. He's a rabble-rouser, and inflames audiences to sustain ratings.

 

So I don't listen to him (and that kind of talk radio because it's just manipulation).

 

Having said that, I don't think his recent controversy was 100% backfire.

 

No publicity is bad publicity, as the saying goes.

 

This is one example - I'm hearing that a few others are doing the same.

Limbaugh rebuffs attempt by Sleep Train to get him back

The rift between Sleep Train Mattress Centers and Rush Limbaugh apparently became permanent today after Limbaugh reportedly turned aside the Sacramento retailer's attempt at a truce.

 

Limbaugh rebuffed Sleep Train's request that the controversial radio host resume his duties as a paid spokesman for the company.

 

Sleep Train stopped advertising on Limbaugh's show after he called a law student advocating for birth control coverage at Georgetown University a "****" and a "prostitute" over her stance on contraception. The retailer said it can't "condone such negative comments directed toward any person."

 

Limbaugh, through his spokesman Brian Glicklich, turned aside Sleep Train's attempts to resume advertising on the show.

 

"Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh's character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the Future."

 

Dale Carlsen, head of Sleep Train, issued a statement saying: "We confirm that Rush Limbaugh will no longer be one of Sleep Train's radio endorsers."

Just a comment on this part of your post.

 

I understand not liking Rush's style, kind of a tradition for me, you get sick of the tunes doing construction work so he breaks up the day.

 

His show has gotten a little bland the past few years, he seems to be just reaping the rewards of his success, not prepping as much and just babbling on at times to fill the time.....understandable I think, he's made his mark.

 

Many haven't listened to him long enough to realize just how good he can be when he's motivated like he was in the 90's.

The left would be best to enjoy the small victory they got from his little gaff and move on.

 

I have heard it's best not to awaken a sleeping giant.
