More bad news for Rush Limbaugh:
A majority of Americans think Rush Limbaugh should be fired for his comments about Sandra Fluke and contraception, according to a Bloomberg poll released on Wednesday.
The poll is another piece of bad news for Limbaugh, who has not been able to shake the scandal he set off by calling Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.” It follows another poll on Tuesday which found that just 29 percent of respondents thought hissubsequent apology to Fluke was sincere. It also comes as advertisers continue to pull out of his show in droves.
The Bloomberg survey showed 53 percent of respondents saying that Limbaugh should be fired “solely” for his comments about Fluke. Men were almost evenly split 49-47 percent on the question, but women came down strongly for Limbaugh’s dismissal, with 56 percent calling for his ouster and 39 percent saying he should stay. Moreover, almost a third of Republicans wanted him gone.
The reality is that Rush will have a job as long as radio stations continue to pay Premier for the honor and privledge of airing Rush Limbaugh. As soon as these stations start feeling the heat, they will dump him and Limbaugh will be history.
Isn’t the ebb and flow of capitalism a wonderful thing?
