    Limbaugh might get 15 million listeners in a week.

    btw - there are 312+ million people in the USA. Even discounting for kids, Limbaugh does not even get 10% of Americans let alone a majority.

    Okay, I'll give you that wiggle room. We can go ahead and presume that the majority of Americans don't watch TV news or listen to the radio. Let's deal strictly with your assertion that it would turn folks off to their ideas if they were broadcast 24/7/365. That assertion is debunked by reality. They ARE broadcast 24/7/365 and to the highest ratings and by a large amount.

    Now, you could have just gratiously received the small sop I offered when I put forward that a goodly portion of those listeners were actually from the other camp, but you didn't. It obviously didn't occur to you what you were saying when you opposed my idea.

    There are 312 million Americans.
    76 million are minors.
    That leaves 236 million adults.

    Limbaugh might get 15 million different people a week that listen to some of his program. An average quarter hour is a bit more than a fifth of that.
    He does not even get 8% of adult Americans listening.

    Premiere Radio Networks, Limbaugh's national syndicator, estimated last year that 3.59 million people were in Limbaugh's audience during an average quarter-hour of his program, based on a review of Arbitron's piecemeal data about hundreds of stations.
    You can do the exact same thing with the ratings of those who see or hear Hannity or O'Reiley or Beck or Coulter or Buchanan or any of that group. They actually reach a very small sector of Americans.

    My comment was that I wanted them on 24/7/365 so ALL Americans would hear them alerting them to the poison that is being injected into the American political system by these whack jobs.

    And MY comment was that they already are and instead of Americans turning away in droves from a message you deem "poison", they tune into these programs in numbers that dwarf the competing stations.

    Yeah, because in your universe all the rest of the folks are either not watching/listening to TV news,the radio or they're watching/listening to a liberal biased station.

    The familiar rightwing radio refrain. Rush keeps telling you, you keep repeating.

    Say it as many times as you like. It's still pathetic.

    It's a cult. With Limbaugh as the avoirdupois oxycontin-taking guru.

    Rush was funny when he was on OCs (mid-late 90s?).
