(Newser) – Updates in the Rush Limbaugh chronicles:

  • Rush Babes: He has created the National Organization for Rush Babes to tweak the National Organization for Women, which is continuing to encourage advertisers to bail on him in the wake of the Sandra Fluke story, reports Yahoo News. NORB is a Facebook page dedicated to "the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American values, and not being told by faux feminist groups how to think."

  • NOW responds: "I don't think conservative women want to associate themselves with his hate," President Terry O'Neill tells Politico. "I don't think they would want to associate themselves with his bullying."
  • Boycott cost millions: The CEO of radio company Cumulus said this week that the boycott of Limbaugh "hit us pretty hard," reports the Huffington Post. Lew Dickey put the losses at "a couple of million bucks in the first quarter and a couple of million bucks in quarter two."
