EXCLUSIVE: 140 Companies Drop Advertising From Rush Limbaugh
ThinkProgress has obtained an internal memo from Premiere Radio Networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the Rush Limbaugh Show. Premiere is the distributor of Limbaugh’s program. The advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. According to the memo obtained by Occupy Wall Street, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”
