Yesterday “El Rushbo” joined the Republican’s bandwagon echoing their deflection de jour away from the current issues, policies, and legislation that together makeup the War on Women by bloviating about a CNN commentator’s remark that Ann Romney has never worked a day in her life. The comment, not the best choice of words,were made by a working mother in response to Mitt’s claims that his wife is his source for understanding what is important to women these days.
In his discussions about this issue, Rush reffered to women in the media as “clucking hens.” He said feminism “Changed Forever The Normal Human Nature Relationships Between Men And Women.” And that the “Infobabe” At CNN “Cut Feminism Off At The Knees” By Saying women want choice between working, staying home. He echoed the Romney camp’s claim that the CNN commentator Read more…

I love it when a plan comes together … as it were.
I leave my “post” for a couple of days and come back to an even better world! As we have all said in the beginning, this movement to clean up the rhetoric of our national conversation won’t happen over night. Consider that Premiere and Clear Channel were all excited a couple weeks ago, touting in press releases that the Rush Limbaugh boycott failed and “He” would go on for ever. This was all reinforced by lazy journalists who simply regurgitated those press releases into articles sprinkled with an interview given by the PR people who created them calling it news. Read more…

Seattle Sponsor List for Rush Limbaugh UPDATED 4/12/12
(Includes 4/2-9 ads, too, now that list shrinking)
We are focusing now on local sponsors:
If your time for calls is brief, please focus on Tub Cove, Infiniti of Kirkland, and Chuck Olson Kia. We think they may be receptive to your concerns, so worth the effort. Thanks! Read more…
UPDATE! So many people have asked how to get involved we put this list together, join us!
Despite what Clear Channel wants you to think, the national grassroots effort to boycott Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors is working in its own quiet way.
Actually, the effort has been more about notifying advertisers than boycotting.
Every day volunteers grit their teeth and listen to Limbaugh’s hate-filled lunchtime show on hundreds of affiliates across the country. They keep track of who is Read more…
UPDATED: 4/5 This page includes lists from listeners recording advertisers from across the country. The participating is growing. There are several other sites like ours out there and we don’t all have the same lists. We will be adding names to the list throughout the day 4/5 and 4/6 – so keep checking back, we add the latest names given to us to the top of the list below!
Please use these lists to make contact w/sponsors whose ads played week of April 2 -04/04 and those from the week of March 26 who haven’t yet confirmed they have pulled their ads from Rush’s show. Some may have said they weren’t aware their ads were on the show, but until they are NO LONGER ADVERTISING They will be on this list. There is a short list of national sponsors who continue to advertise w/Limbaugh – those are listed here
If you are willing to listen to the Rush Limbaugh show on your local station and keep a list of advertisers we’d appreciate it of you share those lists with us – submit your lists via comments.
Please send emails, use facebook and twitter and contact forms. Try to be Read more…
Monday, my assignment was to listen to Rush Limbaugh on the Boston Station Talk Radio 1200. The signal was weak; I had trouble getting the station to come in where I was working so I listened to it on computer via iHeart Radio on Talk 1200’s website.
Most of the ads were national sponsors, local station promos and FREE Ad Council Ads (this is your brain; this is your brain on Limbaugh.) Perhaps the Ad Council ads would be good for some of his listeners; self proclaimed DittoHeads will benefit from the promotions for help with Read more…

Please take some time to help contact these sponsors. Tell them they are on this list and several others (it was shared by it’s author on the Daily Kos) Please share this lists and the entire website with your friends. Ask them to make a few calls and send a few emails…
Hi All! The sponsor list is shrinking still further. Local businesses are re-thinking the wisdom of being a “Limbully” brand sponsor in Seattle, especially when there are fewer and fewer of them, so they really stand out. It’s a big city, and they know we have lots of choices as consumers. Unlike tax cuts, bullying does trickle down, so in honor of the 13,000,000 children who are the victims of bullies each year, The Bully Project and movie, we are redoubling our efforts for #stoprush, to get one of the biggest bullies in the country off the public airwaves in Seattle. Every call, tweet, e-mail you make and send does make a difference! Here’s a link to the project: http://thebullyproject.com/…. Mush on!
