    Probably not a good idea to make decisions which could alter the course of company history on a Saturday night. Will Carbonite become the next Sleep Train, and attempt to regain access to Limbaugh's audience? Via Instapundit, Rush said no to Sleep Train and probably would...

    I'll post the audio when available, but Rush Limbaugh just stated that the advertiser boycott of his show is vastly overstated and based on inflated numbers. (audio added, via Common Cents) As I have pointed out in response to concerned commenters, many of those listed by Media...

    On Saturday, March 3, 2012, Carbonite announced that it was dropping its advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show even after Limbaugh had apologized to Sandra Fluke for certain comments made regarding Ms. Fluke. When the controversy originally broke, Carbonite took a principled stand that its advertising was...

    Jeffrey Lord (via Instapundit) addresses the attempt to drive away Rush Limbaugh's advertisers, focusing particularly on Carbonite: In other words, to put it politely, Mr. Friend's woe-is-me I'm-withdrawing-my-company's sponsorship-from-Rush Limbaugh-because of-my-lovely-daughters is as close to certifiable BS as one can imagine.

Here is the statement released earlier tonight: A Statement from David Friend, CEO of Carbonite as of 6:45pm ET, March 3: “No one with daughters the age...

    I have featured the vile (I'm being restrained here) anti-Israel Boycott Divest Sanction movement before, including their attempts to disrupt businesses owned by Israelis or doing business with Israel.  The BDS movement is an iteration of the Islamist-Leftist Anti-Israel Coalition. IsraellyCool has come up with a...

    Did I say "massive fail"? Isn't this like a horse designed by a committee? There have been some pretty awful Olympic mascots, but these have to be the worst, androgynous one-eyed freaks of nature.You be the judge of the design of Wenlock andMandeville:[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEcT52By_aE]Click here for...
