I love this story. The Blaze is reporting that Sleep Train, who dropped their ads from Limbaugh’s show last week in the wake of his comments about Sandra Fluke, has decided that they made a bad decision and applied to run their ads on the show again, only to be rejected by Rush:
In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy.
“Thank you for your requests last week and this week to restart your voiced endorsement in local markets of The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the email begins. “Rush received your requests personally.”
“Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh’s character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the future.
“Rush appreciates your long friendship and your past support, and we wish you good luck in the future.”
YES! Serves them right and sends a message to all other advertisers who want to have it both ways.
I love it.
