The latest on Rush Limbaugh vs. Sandra Fluke: controversial dating site AshleyMadison.com has offered to buy all excess ad inventory from the advertisers that have pulled ads from the Rush Limbaugh radio show. The site has agreed to buy three months worth of ads.
It seems that AshleyMadison.com, a Web site that helps married folks cheat with discretion, is willing to buy up alll the vacated ad inventory from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show for three months. Rush’s sort-of apology hasn’t stopped advertisers from pulling up stakes, so the adultery broker has stepped up.
In a statement, Noel Biderman, founder and CEO, AshleyMadison.com, said: “We do not believe Mr. Limbaugh should be penalized for expressing his opinion, especially in America. We are offering to step up and fill the void left by the corporations who have pulled their advertising. Rush has always been a controversial figure and we have always been a controversial service so we can relate.”–Karl Greenberg
