There's plenty of companies dying to get on his show.

Carbonite at 52 week low. Word is out they are hypocrites, still on Ed shultz's show after he called Laura Ingram a slut multiple times.

Maher has renew heat over calling Palin a cu.t

Same with Letterman after he joked about Pali's 10 year old daughter being raped.

On Saturday, Carbonite CEO David Friend released a statement on his company’s website declaring that Carbonite had decided to “withdraw” advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in the wake of his controversial remarks involving Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke because it will “ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse”:

Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.

However, it hasn’t done much to contribute to his company’s stock price. Since the market opened on Monday through its close today, Carbonite stock (NASDAQ: CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points. It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday.

Rush said they have just signed 3 new big time advertisers and two other are begging to come back.

The companies that have left are not national sponsors, rush doesn't get any money from them.

Those companies are still running ads on the local stations they just have asked not to run their ads during rush's show at this time

No one is losing money.

It's just another media matters lie
