The activist campaign against Rush Limbaugh is starting to lose steam, The Washington Post reports. A month after Limbaugh’s comments on Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke put the talk-radio icon on notice, the longtime figure is even starting to get some of his advertisers back. “I think certainly the pressure has been reduced,” noted Angelo Carusone, who has led an anti-Rush campaign for Media Matters for America. “To a certain extent, that’s okay and acceptable … Obviously, the intensity is gone, but the engagement remains high.” Do you think Rush will eventually shake off the controversy? Or will he go the way of Glenn Beck, who never really recovered from his advertiser exodus?
