    Feel free to point this out to all the conservatives who complain about "mainstream media" bias.

    Which as I understand it Rush does daily, your point? You want him muzzled? Good liberal.

    As for the OP, a bunch of steaming BS. His show, again as I understand it, is still very popular and his numbers are high. He's not sucking for advertisers, and those who boycott him this way are either using it to satisfy their own meager customer base or trying to change their image with the public.

    And despite all the talk, liberal themed radio is still sucking dust.

    Someone needs to report this "Cumulus" to the suicide prevention hotline.



    If the Country had much interest in "real discussion", then a political philosophy summarized by the bumper sticker phrase "hope 'n' change" would have produced little more than affronted derision.

    How odd that lacking in coherent arguments, some people hope for the "end" of their conversational betters.
    Rush is a purveyor of terrible propaganda. His garbage poisons the minds of millions. He makes millions off the ignorance and gullibility of his audience. His downfall is a step towards progress, towards ridding America of ridiculous ultra right-wing belligerence. This is the root cause of much of what is wrong with America today.

    I consider Limbaugh to be ridiculous. That being said - I pose a challenge to you.

    Without using google, name one advertiser that has been "boycotted". Preferably one that YOU have participated in boycotting that you might normally have used before you found out thy were advertisers.






    (see what I mean. Stupid sells.)

    But you're right. Advertisers only care about the money. And people have targeted Rush's advertisers with boycotts, causing them to lose money. Which is exactly why the advertisers are behaving this way. There will always be listeners and therefore always advertisers, but at some point the economics of his show might no longer work out.

    You know, I'm thinking you're probably not in a position to "speak" for millions, nor judge their intelligence. To assume as much does not bode well for the personal depth of those abilities you're claiming others have in short supply.

    This has nothing to do with censorship, I could care less about people expressing their opinion on the radio. This is about America rejecting this garbage. This is about Americans turning away from manipulators that convince them to act against their own best interests.
