Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
CVS Pharmacy, which is not a Rush Limbaugh advertiser, has been getting mentioned during that program in commercials for anti-itch medication TriCalm.
Because TriCalm had been mentioning that TriCalm is available at CVS, it had been suffering collateral damage from listeners who thought that CVS was advertising directly on Rush Limbaugh because CVS has been listed in the Stop Rush database solely because of its mention in TriCalm spots. This writer has been monitoring Rush Limbaugh spots weekly on staggered days and uploading airchecks of selected advertisers in the Stop Rush database Including TriCalm. This writer has been alerting CVS to the TriCalm ads mentioning CVS causing collateral damage to its image for being linked needlessly to Limbaugh's program. Today, I caught a new TriCalm ad which I recorded and uploaded to TriCalm's listing in the Stop Rush database and noticed that CVS has been replaced in the 'available at...' tag at the end of the commercial with Wal-Mart. I should note that when I post ads for products pitched on Rush Limbaugh, I never post 'available at...' retailers in the database as the retailers had no prior say in where the commercials for the products they sell that mention the retailer are placed. The mention of CVS during TriCalm's commercial during Rush clearly had CVS red-faced leading to the removal of their mention in TriCalm spots aired during Rush Limbaugh.
