Rush Limbaugh used his radio program today to reiterate his “heartfelt” apology to Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown Law student that he labeled a “prostitute” and a “slut” last week for her vocal support for covering contraception in health care plans.
Today’s show was also an opportunity to address the news that a number of advertisers have decided to pull their dollars from the program (the figure has gone from six to eight). AOL has added itself to this list.
“We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values. As a result we have made the decision to suspend advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Radio show,” said AOL spokesperson Maureen Sullivan.
