Carb Stock Watch- Carbonite Suffering For Double Standard Stance?

By Susan Duclos

Via PJ Tatler:

Carbonite led the advertiser exodus from Rush Limbaugh’s show. The Democrat-owned company continues to advertise on Ed Schultz’s show, despite the fact the Schultz is guilty of a thought crime nearly identical to Rush’s: Schultz called Laura Ingraham a “slut” on the air, and later apologized for it. As I argued on America’s Radio News on Monday, the only real difference between what Rush did and what Schultz did is the politics, since both Ingraham and Sandra Fluke are public figures. Schultz hit from the left, Rush hit from the right, but Carbonite has only canceled on Rush. Why?

Carbonite Stock Watch- According to Market Watch, Carbonite is now at 52- week low.

Since we are discussing Carbonite's double standards, head over and check out Legal Insurrection's "Announcing The Carbonite Accountability Project", piece.

Liberals might have pushed Carbonite to drop Rush Limbaugh's from their advertising, but it seems conservatives not happy about Carb's double standards are hitting their wallets.

[Update] The Daily Caller reports on the Investors fleeing Carbonite after they dropped Rush: "It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday."
