Rush Rants have to fill the advertiser vacuum/void
I get to listen to Rush for a few minutes at work each day. I missed the rants on Fluke but found them online and in the news. I am listening now and it just occurred to me that Rush had an awful lot of ads. So much so that he would only be able to talk like five minutes before he announced an “obscene” profit break for an ad from his many clients.
Now, the only loud sound is that of Rush’s voice trying to fill the advertiser vacuum/void that he created all by his little lonesome. Rush sent his advertisers rushing for the exits. Is that the right thing for them to do? Rush has always been polemic. But a direct attack on a private citizen is another thing. And three days of it? Nine hours of it? That makes no sense even from that drug addict.
How many advertisers have left? Let us count them: a bunch.
The ones I heard today are: Lear Capital is still one of his advertisers still. Mutual funds ads. Web site designer American Eagle dot com.
