Limbaugh Backlash as Sponsors Flee

Rush Limbaugh faced rising pressure from critics who are using new media to keep advertisers away from his long-running radio show. At least 10 companies, including online publisher AOL Inc. (AOL), have dropped the most-popular U.S. talk-radio show after Limbaugh called Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke a “prostitute” and a “slut.” Fluke appeared before Congress on Feb. 23 to speak in favor of President Barack Obama’s policy requiring insurers to provide birth control to women.
