    Cumulus: Nearly All Top Advertisers Have 'Exclude Rush Limbaugh' Orders

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3237496.html

    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.

    Wonderful. He represents the ugly vulgar soul of Tea Party America, which needs to be ostracized and run out of town on a rail.

    So much for the concept of free speech.

    "The Rush Limbaugh Program," considered to be the most popular talk radio program in the nation. . .."

    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.

    You guys can critique all you want, Rush has millions of listeners, who buy stuff and that's all advertizers care about.

    They could give a rats ass about some fringe left wing opinion.

    The actions taken by so many advertisers would indicate that this is not just a "fringe opinion."

    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.

    On the other hand, one could just turn the channel and avoid confirming they are a fool for getting upset about what may or may be said on those programs.
