Title: Rush Limbaugh, AOL Part Ways; Pentagon Says Military Will Still Air Limbaugh

WASHINGTON -- AOL, the parent company of The Huffington Post, has become the eighth advertiser to pull its money from Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio program since he called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who spoke out in favor of contraception coverage, a "slut" and a "prostitute" last week, according to a high-level Huffington Post source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, but with a distinctly Greek accent.

"At AOL one of our core values is that we act with integrity," said Maureen Sullivan, an AOL spokeswoman who confirmed the decision. "We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values. As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show."

Limbaugh issued an apology for his comments on Saturday, but that has not stopped advertisers from continuing to sever ties with his program. ProFlowers and Carbonite both left the show after he said he was sorry.

"No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show," Carbonite CEO David Friend said in a statement. "We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse."

A statement from ProFlowers also referenced the personal nature of Limbaugh's attack. "We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA," the company said. "Mr. Limbaugh's recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company."

Fluke herself said Monday that Limbaugh's apology was insufficient.

Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems Inc., and Legal Zoom have also announced that they will no longer be advertising on Limbaugh's show.


Pentagon says military will still air Limbaugh

(03-05) 09:01 PST WASHINGTON, (AP) --

A Pentagon spokesman says the military's network will continue to air Rush Limbaugh's radio program.

George Little says the American Forces Network offers a wide range of programming to reflect listeners' interests and he is unaware of any plans to review that decision.

Limbaugh has come under fire for an outburst on his radio program last week when he called a 30-year-old law student a "slut" after she testified before Congress about birth control policies. He has since apologized.

The network on its website says that Limbaugh's show is popular. It says it doesn't try to protect listeners from hearing views with which they may disagree.

Has commander and chief O'bummma ordered the show broadcast at Gitmo? That would be worse than water-boarding.
