More Good News: Another Advertiser Has Pulled The Plug on Limbaugh

AOL is the eighth advertiser to drop Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in reaction to his derogatory comments about a law student.  AOL Inc. said Monday that “one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values.”

Limbaugh’s comments aren’t in line with any civilized person’s values.  His comments are in line with the values of the Taliban.

AOL spokeswoman Caroline Campbell said advertising on Limbaugh’s show was “not a significant investment for us.” She declined to say which products AOL advertised on the show, or whether its ad purchases were recent. AOL is an Internet portal and runs local news websites, the TechCrunch blog, and the Huffington Post.

    Back when I was a Limbaugh fan (early 90’s), I remember AOL being a huge sponsor. I think it might have slowed down in recent years as AOL became less and less on a player in the world, but that’s a long-standing relationship. That, more than anything else, gives me some hope that maybe we can start getting radio stations to drop him.

    That, of course, is what the world really needs.
