Think Progress who gleefully announced 30 companies pulled their ads from the Rush Limbaugh radio show.Yesterday I chided the extremely Leftist group
I said to TP it would be helpful to know how many advertisers Rush had in the first place. Today, Limbaugh announced financially his show is in fine shape with at least 18,000 clients with ads on his show directly or indirectly through the radio network.
RUSH: I want to ask if you will indulge me for just a brief few minutes for some inside baseball stuff before we move on to our review of the issues of the day, politics and so forth, Super Tuesday, the results, and where we are. The reason for this is, once again, so much misinformation about this program and advertisers is in the mainstream media. People are reporting things that, A, are not true, and B, I don't even think the people reporting it have the slightest idea what they're talking about, nor do they have the ability to understand it.
But I know that many of you are spending a lot of time -- God bless you -- on the Web doing what you can to express your support for the program. And judging from the reaction of my own brother, who sends me a note last night, "You really lost 28 sponsors?" No, we have not lost 28 sponsors. "Well, how can they say it?" Because they lie and because they don't understand how it works, and that's what I want to try and explain. In fact, folks, we have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks. Now, obviously, I'm not gonna tell you who they are today, but we've got three brand-new, full-fledged sponsors starting in the next two weeks.

Nice try Mr. Podesta.
This reminds me of the famous scene from Animal House and futile gestures.
