Panicky Advertisers Abandon Limbaugh
Rush Limbaugh has apologized for labeling 30 year old “reproductive justice” activist Sandra Fluke with two derogatory names.
As of Sunday night, seven companies have stopped advertising with Mr. Limbaugh. I doubt that any of us could talk nationally for three hours a day spanning 20 years and avoid the same fate.
Mr. Limbaugh’s apology signifies a mistake, but perspective on this issue is in order. These companies are free to act as they wish, but their rash conclusions give me pause.
Does our Constitution matter at all to these companies? Does it matter to them that Obama by decree is attempting to force an agenda on religious institutions that violates their freedom of religion?
