Limbaugh a spokesman for vegans?
By Drovers news staff | Friday, April 17, 2009
Several news organizations are reporting that Rush Limbaugh has recorded Public Service Announcements supporting the vegan-driven Humane Society of the United States. According to the Animal Agriculture Alliance, worse still is that one of the two audio spots promotes HSUS’ outreach to religious organizations.
One commentary by Wesley J. Smith, a senior fellow in bioethics, says Limbaugh supporting HSUS “is really against everything for which he stands.”
The Animal Agriculture Alliance has urged livestock producers to e-mail Rush today at ElRushbo@eibnet.com
to urge him to further examine HSUS and reconsider his support of the organization. AAA also urges you to write your own letter expressing your feelings, but to get you started AAA has written a sample letter that is available here.http://www.drovers.com/news_editorial.a ... ed_id=5402
Don't care much for Limbaugh and have no use for the HSUS and their agenda, but, just so you know, a Public Service Announcement means that there is no compensation paid for the advertisement. Not to the spokesperson and not to the broadcast station. This is specifically defined by, and enforced by, the Federal Communications Commission. So your inference that Limbaugh somehow prostituted himself in this case is, well, kinda stupid.
You might want to keep your mindless, left-wing blather over on Ranchers where it belongs.
