Reports Say Sean Hannity Now Feeling the Effects of Limbaugh’s Sandra Fluke ‘Slut’ Comments

In light of DeadState’s Monday piece on Rush Limbaugh‘s feud with Cumulus Media, new details have come to light about the radio host’s problems with advertising revenue — extending beyond Limbaugh to other conservative talkers as well.

As a result of the backlash to Limbaugh’s 2011 comments referring to Sandra Fluke as a “slut,” a significant amount of his national advertisers are now refusing to air their commercials during The Rush Limbaugh Show. According to a report in Radio Ink Magazine, those advertising woes are much worse than previously thought.

In the Radio Ink report, 48 of the top 50 network advertisers “exclude Rush and Hannity” for advertising, with “every major national ad agency” following suit.

According to Mediaite, this is the first time Limbaugh’s competitor Sean Hannity “has been brought into this conversation about advertiser aversion; and because, if true, a 48 out of 50 (96%) rate of top advertisers wanting nothing to do with the shows represents a rather striking figure.”

    This is GREAT NEWS! If they can’t draw the big bucks from advertisers these two wastes of skin might finally be shut up and removed from the air. I know of course that won’t get rid of them completely but at least they will be relegated to internet only venues. I wonder how many of their followers are even able to turn on a computer much less actually operate it.

    What can I do to help speed this process up? Yes, I signed petitions last year when Limbaugh showed his a@@, but how can I help speed up Hannity’s departure?

    Here’s hoping both of them get kicked off the air for good.

    Considering few of them are under 60 and many of them suffer from governmental-phobia psychosis, I’d say only the few yahoos who can still use their motor skills to do something other than fling poop in the air would be able to find the “on” button on a computer. But, thanks to God’s sense of humor, many of them can operate a computer. Just look at a TEA party blog or neocon comments anywhere on the net. It proves why many of those people don’t believe in evolution… yes, I’m saying it didn’t happen for them.

    I’m over 60 and I have no problem with the computer but I am also educated and aware that while the government may not always act in my best interest and I may not always agree with them they are not out to enslave me as those yahoos think. I do read their posts on a daily basis and it is painful to try to make some sense of what they are trying to say. Few of them have any idea what that red squiggle under their misspellings means and actually have the nerve to be offended when someone “picks on” them over their atrocious massacre of the language. Still if they are relegated to the internet, it does narrow to some extent their reach. What scares me the most is the number of young kids they have recruited, they may be barely able to read and write but because of video games they are fairly handy with computers. And they really believe that things were much better “back in the day.”
