In full disclosure , I use Mozy, so screw carbonite and any others who follow. 😀
OK, we have a slut that has all kinds of sex and expects the Gov to pay for it.
I’m not judging her, hey what ever. The part about Gov paying is what irks me. So El Rushbo calls her a slut. He apologized and I wish he did not.
So some advertisers pull adds. Now funny part.. Carbonite pulls because, now get this.
“ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse”:
and now the rest of the story.. LOL———–
Investors flee Carbonite after Limbaugh announcement
On Saturday, Carbonite CEO David Friend released a statement on his company’s website declaring that Carbonite had decided to “withdraw” advertising from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in the wake of his controversial remarks involving Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke because it will “ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse”:
Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.
However, it hasn’t done much to contribute to his company’s stock price. Since the market opened on Monday through its close today,
Carbonite stock (NASDAQ:CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points. It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday.
Can you say oop’s. Love it when a plan blows up in their little PC faces.
