Advocacy Efforts can have an Effect

Check out this brief excerpt of Rush Limbaugh’s most recent radio show, from the online stream. What you will hear is more than one minute of dead air, where an ad would normally run. Over 50 companies and organizations have pulled their ads this week from America’s most listened to radio show, in response to Limbaugh’s remarks about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke. Fluke drew Limbaugh’s criticism for her testimony before a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee Subject hearing on women’s health, after Republicans held their own committee hearing on women’s health and contraception.
