More details from the Long Beach Press-Telegram:

Aquarium Communications Manager Claire Atkinson said the popular Long Beach attraction “did not specifically purchase ads on Rush Limbaugh’s show.”

Atkinson added: “The demographic we are trying to reach in our media buys is families.”

Presumably that includes families who would like to use contraception without being called “sluts.”
