Radio commentator Rush Limbaugh’s abusive language directed at a Georgetown University law school student triggered a ferocious reaction over the weekend.
Limbaugh’s foes used Facebook and other social media to encourage a boycott of his radio advertisers. Many of those advertisers reacted quickly, announcing they were pulling their radio spots from his show.
On Sunday, Limbaugh apologized for his language.
Before that–on Friday, March 2–Cascade Radio Group General Manager Michael O’Shea published his own apology to anyone offended by Limbaugh’s language. O’Shea also invited listeners to send him their comments about the offensive segment in particular and Limbaugh in general. O’Shea promised to forward comments on to Premiere Radio, the company that syndicates Limbaugh’s program.
