You can add four more to the list of advertisers fleeing Rush Limbaugh.
I sent the following letter to all 31 sponsors:
I was very sorry to learn your company is proud to continue paying for Rush Limbaugh to continue calling women sluts over the airwaves.
I and my 10,000 plus twitter followers and 800+ Facebook friends will be spreading the word about withholding support for your company while you continue to support
this offensive and dangerous bigotry.

Here’s what they said:
Thank you for contacting Vitacost.com.
To put it frankly, Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments have been unsettling, and many of our fans have voiced concern that Vitacost.com endorses these views. These comments are definitely not in line with our brand values, and in listening to our fans we’ve decided to remove our advertising from the program.
Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with, it will be my pleasure
Have a great day!

Thank you for contacting Ackerman Security. This issue is being looked into by our upper management as we are being made aware that our advertisements with the radio stations may be being played during the broadcasts of his show . Ackerman in no way promotes or endorses Rush Limbaugh or any other public official.
