Another Misogynistic Attack – Limbaugh Calls Washington Post Blogger ‘B-i-itchy’ (AUDIO)

Rush, Rush, Rush. Why do you hate women so much? Did your Mommy deny you ice cream once too often? Did the girl you called your “girlfriend” in high school deny that she’d ever met you? Did subsequent women make fun of your you-know-what? You do know, Rush, that you are in quite a bit of hot water for calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute,” right? Personally, I don’t see those words as being any more offensive than the one you wear like an old size 14 stiletto, “feminazi,” but hey, the public has its limits and you’ve reached them.

As of now, 45 sponsors have pulled their ads, which are now being replaced by unpaid public service announcements, including, ironically (given Limbaugh’s racist rhetoric), the United Negro College Fund. A website for adulterers and another for “sugar daddies” have offered to pick up the currently vacant spots. A Washington Post humorist, Alexandra Petri, had the gall to comment on his new potential advertisers, only to be called, “b-i-itchy.”


Advertisers are not typically stupid. They don’t want to spend money trying to attract people who aren’t interested in buying? Both the adulterer and sugar daddies website must see potential in Limbaugh’s audience. Petri noted that Limbaugh’s audience must be made up of “jerks” if these are the sort of advertisers that are interested. From The Washington Post:

Advertisers learned something about Rush Limbaugh’s demographic this week.

“Here we thought lots of pleasant, upstanding people were listening to and enjoying the rational things Rush had to say,” dozens of companies said. “Apparently not.”

It turns out that people who really, truly still enjoy Rush Limbaugh’s show are — how do I put this? — jerks.

At least that’s what the new advertisements moving into the vast empty lot of Rush Limbaugh, Inc., implies. “Ah,” you say, as a rat runs over your foot and several people offer payday loans and try to sell you watches from their trench coats. “This place seems to have gone downhill somewhat.”

She did erroneously report that the sponsors had already been signed on, but so did Politico, on at least one of them. Did Limbaugh go after the Politico reporter, whose gender is unknown? No. He went after the woman.

Yesterday I explained to you how it is that we have not lost whatever the number is today, 45 or 43 advertisers.  Today there’s a more blatant example of what journalism has become, and it’s in the Washington Post.  It’s a story written by a woman named Alexandra Petri.  I don’t know how it’s pronounced.  Alexandra Petri.  And let me read you the headline of this news story.  I don’t know if it’s in the newspaper or just on their website, but here’s the headline: “Rush Limbaugh’s Show Targets Jerks, Judging From the Latest Ads — Advertisers learned something about Rush Limbaugh’s demographic this week.  ‘Here we thought lots of pleasant, upstanding people were listening to and enjoying the rational things Rush had to say,’ dozens of companies said. ‘Apparently not.’ It turns out that people who really, truly still enjoy Rush Limbaugh’s show are — how do I put this? — jerks.”

This is the Washington Post characterizing you.  “At least that’s what the new advertisements moving into the vast empty lot of Rush Limbaugh, Inc., implies. … So far, he’s picked up AshleyMadison.com, the site where you go to cheat on your wife, and another website that is explicitly for sugar-daddy matchmaking.”  There’s only one problem.  We are not running spots or commercials from AshleyMadison.com.  In fact, when we find that they are running in our program in local markets we call the local affiliate and tell them, “Don’t run these ads in our show.”  We do not sponsor companies that help people cheat on their spouses.  And right here it is in the Washington Post, claiming that we are.

Now, the people that run Ashley Madison are out saying they’re willing to advertise on our program.  There are stories and advertising blogs about this, but we have not accepted it.  Right here in the Washington Post.  Ms. Petri, I don’t know who feeds you your information — I have a pretty good guess — but you might want to double-check here because you’ve written something that’s patently false, it’s an out-and-out lie complete with your b-i-itchy opinion in it, and it is untrue.  We are not running commercials.  We wouldn’t accept commercials.  We have rejected their offers from outfits that do this kind of thing, provide a way for you to cheat on your spouse.  We have never knowingly had this company in our program.
