Rate this topic

"Radio-Info reported on Friday that 98 advertisers have told Premiere Radio Networks, which syndicates Rush Limbaugh's radio show, that they want to avoid advertising on Limbaugh's show and other programs with content "deemed to be offensive or controversial":

 

There are some really big names on that list like Ford, GM, Toyota, Allstate, Geico, Prudential, State Farm McDonald's, and Subway.

 

Right wing hate radio now has been put on notice so these 98 advertisers do not want their ads running on Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Tom Leykis, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, and Sean Hannity.

 

Got to be a huge loss for Premiere Networks when all things shake out.

DAMN!

 

I read thsat most stations are filling the void with public service annoucements for the tax payer funded Ad Council. gotta love the irony. Rush is getting a tax payer funded bail out from the Obama Admin! BWHAHAHAHAHJAHA

 

History

 

The Advertising Council was conceived in 1941, and shortly after, in February 1942, it was incorporated as The War Advertising Council for the purpose of mobilizing the advertising industry in support of the war effort. Early campaigns encouraged the purchase of war bonds and conservation of war materials.[2]

After the conclusion of the Second World War the War Advertising Council changed its name to the Advertising Council and shifted its focus to peacetime campaigns. In 1945, the Ad Council began working with the National Safety Council.[2]

[edit]Famous campaigns

 

Rosie the Riveter was developed by the WAC as part of its "Women in War Jobs" campaign.[2]

"Crying Indian" anti-pollution campaign for Keep America Beautiful, was created in 1973 and won two Clio Awards.[2]

United Negro College Fund campaign, with its slogan "A mind is a terrible thing to waste", was created in 1972.[2]

McGruff campaign with its slogan "Take a bite out of crime" for the National Crime Prevention Council (in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Justice), was created in 1978.[2]

"Friends don't let friends drive drunk" campaign for the U.S. Department of Transportation that helps prevent DUI accidents until 2005.[2]

Smokey Bear campaign was created in 1944[2] to educate Americans about the harm wildfires could cause the war effort, and the danger that the Japanese might deliberately start forest fires by shelling the West Coast of the United States. It was 1947 when the iconic Smokey Bear phrase was finally coined: "Remember...only YOU can prevent forest fires!". [3]

Vince and Larry, the Crash Test Dummies (1985–1999)[2] a campaign about safety belts.

"I am an American" (2001-present) a campaign launched in wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack emphasizing the diversity of America. The ad features people of many ethnicities looking in the camera and simply saying, "I am an American."

"Be cool About Fire Safety", a campaign that teaches kids about fire safety.

In September 2011, Ad Council and USAID launched the FWD campaign to spread awareness about the devastating famine, war, and drought affecting over 13 million people in the Horn of Africa. The initiative garnered the participation of celebrities like Uma Thurman, Geena Davis, Josh Hartnett, and Chanel Iman, who starred in Public Service Announcements that asked the public to “FWD the facts” about the crisis.[4]

[edit]Organizations with campaigns done by the Ad Council

 

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality

American Heart Association

Autism Speaks

Bedsider

Give Kids The World Village

Keep America Beautiful

National Crime Prevention Council

Save the Children

United Negro College Fund

United States Department of Agriculture

United States Department of Transportation

United States Olympic Committee

WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children)

[edit]Relationship with Disney

 

Many recent Ad Council PSAs predominantly use Disney characters, such as Baby Einstein.[citation needed]

[edit]Controversy

 

Radio show host/Comedian Adam Carolla has many times taken umbrage with the Ad Council on both his show, The Adam Carolla Show and Loveline, stating that they do not provide any value, and that the topics they choose to provide statements on are not real issues that affect Americans, such as airplane turbulence, or are issues that an ad on public radio could not possibly do anything about, such as housing discrimination. Furthermore, Carolla has stated that this valuable time taken up could be used to enlighten Americans on topics such as teen pregnancy and options, or illiteracy, topics that have a much more significant impact on society.[5]

 

Given the Ad Council's historically close collaboration with the President of the United States and the federal government, it has been labeled as "little more than a domestic propaganda arm of the federal government."[

We can only hope the Dems win back power and we can once and for all get clear definitions of hate speech, and clear laws forbidding it on Republican broadcasts.

Only then will we be able to achieve the proper utopia in our society.

Let's see... if he were back on drugs, then he would qualify as disabled. If the Dems continue to try to get him fired, then they would be breaking all sorts of laws like the ever-useful Americans With Disabilities Act.

 

Dang I just love all this politics of division... it can be so handy (if you can ever figure it out clearly).

Last week while the pinkos spent an entire week trying to forget who they elected president by wringing their limp dickskinning hands over the killing of a kid they really don't care about, the guy at Media Matters that ran this whole sting admitted this number was a little closer to four.

 

 

Limbaugh is still on the air, sorry kids, try again

Maybe your in your communist utopia. Keep taking rights away from Americans and there will be a very very steep price to pay.

I'm afraid that reports of Mr. Limbaugh's financial demise have been greatly exaggerated. Again, Rush's political enemies have premature ejubulated all over themselves. ;)

Yup - and it was reported that his number of viewers is greater now than prior to the Sandra Fluke incident. Must suck for the left when a scheme they dream up fails

Why do you think Media Matters failed so badly?
