To date, over 50 advertisers have stopped paying Rush Limbaugh to spread his hateful, sexually-obsessive tirades. Here are some other stats from Daily Kos:
-- 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.
And LOLGOP reports that " Dead air has asked to not be aired during Rush Limbaugh's show." Daily Kos: Rush Limbaugh just giving it away for free now
