Tell Cumulus Media To Flush Rush
Rush Limbaugh's contract with Cumulus expires soon. Don't renew it. It's time to flush Rush.
Why is this important?
Rush Limbaugh has a long record of reckless vitriol, bigotry, racism and sexism. After he attacked a female law student as a "slut" and a "prostitute," over 2,600 advertisers have refused to run ads during Limbaugh's show.
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin trial, Limbaugh even used the n-word and claimed it was not racist.

The advertiser losses are having an effect, though. Cumulus Media carries Rush Limbaugh on over 40 stations. Rush Limbaugh's contract with Cumulus expires this year, but renewal is not guaranteed the way it was in the past. Recently, Cumulus’ CEO reported that the backlash to Limbaugh’s remarks has cost Cumulus stations millions of dollars in revenue and that most major advertisers now refuse to associate themselves with Limbaugh.
When Limbaugh's contract expires, Cumulus Media should not renew it. Enough is enough.
