Oops El Rushbo, we're sorry: "Company who dropped ads from Limbaugh’s show asks to be reinstated"
A Limbaugh spokesman said that California mattress
company Sleep Train asked to restart a “voiced endorsement” from
Limbaugh that it had publicly cut off last week. The company said at the
time that it “does not condone such negative comments toward any
Sleep Train’s departure from the program had been billed by some
observers as particularly significant because the mattress retailer had
been with Limbaugh show for 25 years. Yet the tone of Sleep Train’s
withdrawal statement last Friday hinted it might not be pulling out for
the long run…
Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich on Thursday forwarded a copy of an
email that he said had been sent to Sleep Train Chief Executive Dale
Carlsen. In it, Glicklich wrote that Limbaugh had personally received
the company’s requests to resume advertising on his show.
“Unfortunately,” Glicklich wrote, “your public comments were not well
received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush
Limbaugh’s character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to
inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the
future.” OH SNAP!
