Twitter handles of advertisers still on Limbaugh’s radio show; 13 now dropped

UPDATED: 3/6/12 – This list is now outdated.  Please check the second column of the blog for an updated list of advertisers, and contact them based on that list.  Thanks.

UPDATED: 8:16pm – You’ll find Twitter handles for today’s advertisers below.  Please tweet them, and retweet this post.

13 advertisers have now dropped Rush Limbaugh’s radio show after he called a Georgetown law student a “sl-t” for testifying before a panel of the House of Representatives. Per Media Matters, here are the companies that advertised on Limbaugh’s show today on WABC – the list has been confirmed by Media Matters, the ads ran. 

Below you’ll find Twitter handles for the various companies – I think this is the most effective way to contact them. It’s public, and people will retweet it easily. One more thing about how ads work, and how to avoid being fooled by these companies.  A company doesn’t always choose what show its ad runs on – they can, for example, buy ads on an entire network and let the network decide which shows and what time (it’s cheaper than picking specific shows and times).  This permits advertisers, like Netflix, to misleadingly claim that gosh they’re not “direct advertisers” on Limbaugh’s show – thus tricking people into thinking they don’t advertise on his show at all, when what they really are saying is that they didn’t CHOOSE his specific show to advertise on, not that their ads aren’t running there.  They can still tell their ad person to make sure none of their ads run on Limbaugh’s show – so why dont they?

    ONE MORE DOWN

    Why can’t the political whores within the State Dept. keep their lousy
    claws out of other people’s business. No doubt the gentle man in
    question was murdered. Washington DC is a clap-trap of deadbeats, bums,
    parasites and fools. Chavez was hounded for not kneeling down abiding to
    sell his nation out to international finance. Our State Dept. is a
    clown’s paw in the hands of Marxists agents; and parasitic leeches are
    invisible pall bearers, for a decent man, of whom would not barter off
    his soul to SOB’s in the New York stock exchange. Investing bandits are
    awaiting another victim who fails the protocols of illicit gambling.
