Media Matters on Limbaugh

Media Matters reports: Who’s Advertising On Rush Limbaugh? As of yesterday, forty-five advertisers had dropped out. Lots of PSAs in their place.

Media Matters also has a timeline of Limbaugh’s remarks re: Sandra Fluke. I think it’s fair to say that the sheer hatefulness of his remarks has been underreported.

3:25 p.m.: Now it’s forty-eight.

March 10: Now it’s ninety-eight.

I finally read the transcript of Fluke's testimony yesterday, and thus am even more flabbergasted about Limbaugh's complete illogic. And in some ways even more so about how many other commentators have followed him down that rabbit hole.

Do these people not even watch or read the thing they are commenting on? She said nothing at all about herself, so the aspersions about her behavior seem even more bizarre.

It’s sick, isn’t it? I cannot understand how anyone, whatever her or his political persuasion, could find Limbaugh’s remarks anything short of repellent.
