This from Daily Kos:
Spurred on by more than 120,000 members of the Daily Kos community like you, this week over 50 companies and organizations pulled their advertisements from Rush Limbaugh's radio program.
Yesterday, the results of your action could be heard in the form of beautiful, long silences during the commercial breaks in the online streaming of Limbaugh's show on WABC, the flagship station for his broadcasts. Here are the amazing stats:
- A total of 86 ads aired during WABC's online streaming broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show yesterday;
- 77 of those ads were public service announcements donated free of charge by the Ad Council;
- Of the nine paid spots that ran, seven were from companies that have said they have taken steps to ensure their ads no longer air during the program;
- WABC's online feed included about 5:33 of dead air when ads would normally have run.
