Rush Limbaugh's anti-woman rants have gone so far that it is unacceptable for WGAN to profit from filling Maine's airwaves with his hate and misogyny.
Limbaugh called a law student who testified on behalf of insurance coverage for contraceptives a "slut" and a "prostitute" and publicly suggested that she post videos of herself having sex on the Internet.
If Rush were using such blatant and unabashed slurs about a racial or ethnic group, his repulsive vitriol would never be broadcast. We request that WGAN, which currently has one female host and 15 male hosts, show its support for the women of Maine by pulling Limbaugh's show from the airwaves effective immediately--and replacing his noon to 3 pm radio show with one that has a woman host.
