    I think folks have a right to know. I'm skeptical of the station's efforts to distance the museum (its client) from Limbaugh, and I think it might be helpful for people to express their hopes to the museum directly that they never, ever advertise on the Rush Limbaugh show again. i can't imagine that people who frequent museums would want to patronize a museum that endorses comparing marriage equality to pedophilia.

    •  I AGREE, This station is LYING..! Richard knew... (3+ / 0-)

      Oh we miss him so, but not as much as Candy and Randy I know.
      But this is bull pucky, every excuse I see is that the ad was a MISTAKE per Richard THAT COULD NOT HAPPEN!

      Keep up the Work.. Richard and Candy and Randy and SANDRA and all women  and LGBT need us.

    •  That's what StopRush does (9+ / 0-)

      We have volunteers who do nothing but contact advertisers and tell them exactly that.  It worked with this museum.  They were allowing the station to run bulk ads (played at the station's discretion) during Limbaugh and initially told us they had no control and felt they could avoid politics entirely just by ignoring it.  We eventually convinced them otherwise apparently, because they didn't air an ad on Limbaugh for months.  The ad they aired this week was clearly station error.

      Try this:  go to stoprush.net, select "search by sponsor name" and type the word "symphony" or "museum" in.  You'll be amazed how many allow their name to run alongside this awful show.

      Thanks for everything, Richard. We'll finish it for you. http://stoprush.net https://twitter.com/proglegs
