    He's had a right to his show for decades.

    He'll survive your make believe story and continue to expose your corrupt ideology.

    Um. I think you should re-read your words, and then look in a mirror...

    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.
    Muzzled? No. I'm exercising my free speech and economic freedom to choose to criticize a hateful man and refuse to purchase products from companies that advertise on his show. Many others are doing the same.

    Free market at work, buddy. Funny how you guys suddenly hate the free market when it doesn't go your way.

    He'll always have a right to have his show. But he wont always have the financial support to keep doing it.

    Anyone has a right, as long as he/she can make the radio show work, and be self-supporting. Just as you have the right to spew whatever you think, by any legal means at your disposal, so does Limbaugh. You may not agree with him, but that's what the 1st is all about.

    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.
    So then... by your own admission this is happening because of a coordinated effort to silence free speech.

    Glad we got that cleared up.

    Can you explain why HuffPost's only named source within their article is a former Vice President of the Young Democrats of America and former President of the Young Democrats of Arkansas?

    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.
    Aw come on! We need shock jocks like Rush for entertainment.

    Suddenly my choice to not purchase a product is an attempt to stifle free speech. That's a laugh coming from the so-called supporters of individual liberty.

    I think you're a bit confused. I posted a link and made an argument supporting Rush Limbaugh's demise. You misinterpreted that as support for censorship. I made a post explaining that was not my intention at all and that your fears may have come from the very show I am against. Now you are suggesting that because I am critical of your beliefs I should abandon my own argument? Why?
