Rush Limbaugh has seen droves of advertisers leave his radio show after calling Georgetown University student, Sandra Fluke, a slut and a prostitute, but the conservative radio host still seems defiant over the issue.
On a message posted on Limbaugh's website, the conservative commentator offered up another example of hypocrisy from the main stream media and gave another defense for his incendiary comments about Fluke - rappers.
You talk about a double standard, Limbaugh wrote in a post on his website. One of the greatest illustrations of it is that rappers can practically say anything they want about women, and it's called art.
Limbaugh went on to blame the Democratic Party and the media for the decline in morality in America.
It's the Democrats and the media that use the power of intimidation to get people to cave on their own morality, to give it up, Limbaugh wrote. All for the sake of avoiding confrontation or opposition.
Despite losing many advertisers Limbaugh went on to say that his show is about the viewers and not the advertisers.
For me, this program is always about you, Limbaugh wrote. You talk to anybody that knows me who asks me about this program, and I always say, 'It's all for the audience,' because if you're not there, all the rest of this is academic. This show is about you. It's not about the advertisers.
No radio broadcast will succeed by putting business ahead of the needs of its loyal audience, and that audience is you, he continued. My success has come from you. My focus has always and always will be on you. Advertising's a business decision. It's not a social one. Only the leftists try to use extortion, pressure, threats to silence opposing voices. We don't do that.
