‘Everything’s Cool’: Rush Limbaugh Says Media Reports About His Advertisers Are Misleading

(By Becket Adams, The Blaze) - In the wake of the “kerfuffle” over Rush Limbaugh mocking 30-year old Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, news outlets including the Huffington Post, Politico, and the Associated Press have breathlessly reported that a growing number of businesses have abandoned the three-hour radio program — despite a written and on-air apology from its host.

Some critics, Limbaugh included, believe that the purpose of these reports is to convince audiences that Limbaugh has done irreparable financial damage to his brand and that his show won’t last much longer.

“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,” Limbaugh said during his show on Wednesday. “No, we have not lost 28 sponsors.”
