Limbaugh Sees Ratings Dip Following Attacks On Sandra Fluke

The ratings for Rush Limbaugh’s radio show have dropped significantly in key markets since he attacked Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke as a “prostitute” and a “slut” after she spoke out in favor of the Obama administration’s contraception rule requiring coverage at no additional cost. Despite claiming in March that his ratings were up 60 percent, Limbaugh’s numbers have fallen 27 percent in the 25-54 demographic in New York City, 31 percent in Houston-Galveston, 40 percent in Seattle-Tacoma, and 35 percent in Jacksonville, Politico reports. The numbers come from a selection of the March 29 to April 25 Arbitron ratings.
