On Monday, two small stations that carried Limbaugh’s midday radio program, WBEC in Pittstown, Massachusetts, and KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, drop the EIB Network or the nicotine stained fingers of the ‘Maha Rush’ program after calling a Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and a ‘prostitute’ on air. Later, rush issued an apology. Now, his radio sponsors are jumping ship. Carbonite, a big advertiser of Rush’s program also withdrew from the sponsorship.

A Statement from David Friend, CEO of Carbonite  “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. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.”

WBEC general manager Peter Barry told a local public radio station that Limbaugh had overstepped his boundaries and KPUA said “The most recent incident has crossed a line of decency and a standard that we expect of programming on KPUA whether it is locally produced or a syndicated program like the Rush Limbaugh show,”
