They might also just be trying to avoid offending anyone.
Maybe McDonald's feels they will get flack if they advertise on Rush but won't get flack if they advertise on Sharpton. They certainly don't have a reputation of being a left wing company, that's for sure.
Anothr possibility is that McDonald's feels that its customer base is better represented among Sharpton listeners than Limbaugh listeners.
Very few companies make public political statements. It's just not good for the bottom line. You lose the people who disagree but don't gain much more revenue from those who agree.
