    Nobody has a right to a radio show. As Limbaugh will soon learn as his toxic ideology is turning corporate America against him and his "slut" remarks.

    Why then, the silence would be deafening...

    Besides, it's important for America to avoid those who try to decide for themselves who should, and shouldn't be allowed to express an opinion.

    Probably the reason god invented doors, and on/off switches.

    Interesting...

    Guess what you DONT find on the list of radio programs people actually bother to listen to...
    The demographics are the problem -- all his listeners live in trailer parks, or will live there. Their major brand loyalty is to Oxycontin. That limits advertizers a bit.

    This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. You are fixated on the idea that somebody is trying to control you, control your radio station, control free speech. You think "they" are trying to take your liberties. Where did you get this idea from? Rush? Another similar source?

    I really hope this is the beginning of the end for Rush. I also really hope this is a signal that the country is sick and tired of political garbage for entertainment and is more interested in real discussion.
    Then, a very high ranking Cumulus official sent the following statement to Radio Ink, and asked not to be sourced. "Forty-eight of the top 50 network advertisers have “excluded Rush and Hannity” orders. Every major national ad agency has the same dictate." That's a stat Premiere Radio flat out denied. “That statement is completely inaccurate. A number of the top spenders in the medium use talk radio to promote their brands and sell product, and many of them use The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show as the driving force of their marketing efforts.”
    Sounds like the entire huffpost article is based on an unnamed source.

    Also, Huff also shows a tweet from one "Josh Blevins" as evidence of being approached, unsolicited, for cheap ad space during the Rush program. Anyone want to guess what he lists as his previously work history?

    http://www.linkedin.com/in/joshblevins

    He even has the same chach photo as his twitter feed.

    The political garbage that gave us our current record debt...the political garbage that gave us the Arab Spring or the political garbage that gave us death and destruction in Benghazi...speaking of real discussion...

    That must be it. that must be what has put him on top of the radio charts for...how many decades has he been doing this?

    I didnt see a whole lot of influential liberal or 'progressive' programs. Ive heard a few of them. I understand why that is. You have the Limbaughs and Hannitys of the world, and then you have liberals and progressives spending all their day talking ABOUT the Limbaughs and the Hannitys. Its...sad, really.

    hell we wouldnt know anything about the day to days of Fox, Beck, and others if it werent for the oh so happy liberals and progressives on this site,.
