"Six More Advertisers Ditch Rush"
The number of advertisers fleeing Rush Limbaugh continues to climb.
In an email release today, GEICO said, “In 2004 when Rush Limbaugh’s program also carried remarks that were inappropriate, we ceased all advertising on his show. We don’t advertise there to this day. On occasion, a local station may mistakenly run a GEICO ad in the wrong time slot. We are directing our ad buyers to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
On Facebook, the St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Connecticut said it “has directed WABC to withdraw our advertisements from the Rush Limbaugh show,” adding “We agree that Mr. Limbaugh’s recent derogatory comments regarding an individual testifying before Congress are not acceptable.”
According to Bloomberg, Stamps.com has also suspended advertising and tractor maker Deere & Co. will take steps to make sure it doesn’t advertise on the program.
