Rush Limbaugh's Advertisers, March 12

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

Note: We inadvertently included Bermuda.com (MediaHouse) as an advertiser during hour 2, commercial break 4. The correct advertiser is GoToBermuda.com, which is owned and operated by the Bermuda state tourism board. Bermuda.com is not and has not ever been an advertiser on Rush Limbaugh's program. Media Matters regrets the error.

At least 51 advertisers have reportedly dropped their ads from Rush Limbaugh's radio show in the wake of his misogynistic attacks on Sandra Fluke.

Here are his March 12 advertisers, in the order they appeared on WABC, the flagship station for Limbaugh's show. (This episode was guest-hosted by Mark Steyn.) Audio clips of the ads have been provided to help make advertisers aware of the placement of their ads on the program.

Advertisers with links on their names have already stated that they have asked to have their ads excluded from Limbaugh's show.

Hour 2, commercial break 4

  • Bermuda Department of Tourism (GoToBermuda.com) [Note: On March 13, the Bermuda Department of Tourism contacted Media Matters and gave us this statement: "The Bermuda Department of Tourism (BDOT) was only made aware that promotional ads had been running on a website carrying the Rush Limbaugh show today (March 13). As part of an overall advertising effort, the BDOT placed digital streaming network ads online and one of those stations within that network buy does indeed carry the Rush Limbaugh show, amongst others. As is typical, large media buys have a broad distribution. Since being made aware that Bermuda Tourism ads were running, they have been immediately discontinued. As an aside, the Bermuda Department of Tourism has assured its local and overseas supporters that in no way does it condone or agree with the recent controversial comments attributed to Rush Limbaugh."]
