Responding to mounting pressure from veterans groups, the U.S. Army confirmed that they would be joining at least 140 other advertisers in pulling their support from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. As ThinkProgress reported on Monday, a memo circulated by Premiere Radio Networks included a list of 141 advertisers that requested their spots be pulled from the show after Limbaugh’s misogynistic tirade. The Army is on that list. While the military is pulling its ads from Limbaugh, Armed Forces Radio continues to air the show. Veterans groups and Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) are urging the Pentagon to drop Limbaugh.
