Michelle Malkin's #TWITCHY Puts Money Where Her Principles Are, Buys Advertising On Rush Limbaugh

By Susan Duclos

I may not agree with every single thing Michelle Malkin says or does, we aren't robots we are not meant to agree on everything but I will say she takes a principled stance on issues and remains consistent across the board when she takes such a stand.

Via TWITCHY, a new startup of Malkin's which we discussed here, has just announced the site will be advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show.

Colorado Springs, Col., March 9 – Michelle Malkin, owner and founder of new Internet start-up TWITCHY.COM, issued the following statement:

“As a small business owner, defender of capitalism, and advocate of free speech, I am putting my money where my conservative, free-market principles are. TWITCHY.COM is proud to join companies across the country that advertise with talk show giant Rush Limbaugh and his Excellence In Broadcasting network. Today, we will begin running ads on the website.

“Double standards and feigned outrage about Rush’s comments fit a decades-old pattern of liberal attempts to shut down his show and silence his voice. President Obama himself explicitly attacked Rush in 2009 at the very start of his presidency. But Limbaugh not only has survived countless protests, boycotts, media smears and political attempts to kick him off the airwaves. He has emerged each time with a higher profile, greater influence, and a strengthened hand.

“Our business is fledgling and the ad revenue we generate may be small, but we are grateful for the opportunity to reach Rush’s massive audience – and to show our support for his work.”
