AOL is the eighth advertiser to drop Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in reaction to his sharply criticized comments about a law student, who recently testified before Democrats in Congress about university coverage of contraception.
Internet publishing giant AOL said Monday that “one of our core values is that we act with integrity. We have monitored the unfolding events and have determined that Mr. Limbaugh’s comments are not in line with our values.”
AOL spokeswoman Caroline Campbell said advertising on Limbaugh’s show was “not a significant investment for us.” She declined to say which products AOL advertised on the show, or whether its ad purchases were recent. AOL is an Internet portal and runs local news websites, the TechCrunch blog, and the Huffington Post.
