"Netflix Becomes 30th Advertiser To Drop Limbaugh"

Moments ago, Netflix emailed a statement to the tech website Boing Boing indicating that the company will ensure that its ads never appear on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show again:

Spotted your tweets and wanted to let you know that Netflix has not purchased and does not purchase advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show. We do buy network radio advertising and have confirmed that two Netflix spots were picked up in error as part of local news breaks during the Rush Limbaugh show. We have instructed our advertising agency to make sure that this error will not happen again.

According to a ThinkProgress count, Netflix is now the 30th company to issue a public statement expressing its intention to pull ads from the Rush Limbaugh radio show as a result of his derogatory, sexist, and insulting attacks on Sandra Fluke.
