Tuesday evening the AP released a story written based on an interview with the Chairman of Clear Channel, Bob Pittman. His response is pure PR- anyone who is familiar with marketing can spot a campaign here. With overconfidence, he minimizes the “outrage” at Limbaugh by saying it’s “part of the normal day-to-day of talk radio.”
When he refers to the advertisers who have left, he frames it as if that is all done and over, it, “did not have a major impact on the company and there has not been a major move among stations to drop Limbaugh.”
It makes us all smile. He has NO idea. Read more…

POST UPDATED W/NEW INFORMATION:
It’s been a popular question since this whole thing started, why is Rush Limbaughs show playing on a radio station funded by OUR TAX DOLLARS?
Apparently they don’t pay to play the show – we are still trying to figure that out -but we pay for the entire network w/our tax money via the DOD. We need to get this show off the air, it makes me shudder as I do my taxes that we are in anyway supporting him. There are many movements out there to get Secretary Panetta to drop this show – these are some we’ve collected over the past two weeks. If you know of other efforts/links/twitter/facebook please leave a comment. Read more…
“What does it say about the college coed Susan [sic] Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.”
– Rush Limbaugh, The Rush Limbaugh Show from February 28 segment titled “Butt Sisters are Safe from Newt and Rick.”
UNIVERSITY of Vermont – If you are one of the millions of parents or students look at colleges or already making monthly payments to pay for a college education, how would you feel if you learned your money is being spent to allow a Limbaugh station to call itself the voice of that college’s sports teams?
So much for the progressive reputation Vermonters always seemed so proud to wear. See story here and comment, please. In response to the calls from local residents and students for the college to disassociate itself from Rush Radio, the university’s chancellor made a move that he felt was a Read more…
Limbaugh’s paid employees along with the big guy himself have started a media campaign designed to blame the effort to boycott his advertisers on a long-standing effort by Media Matters to rid the airways of the poison Limbaugh feeds his GOP audience. Limbaugh’s staff claim their boss is the victim of a years-long conspiracy and refer to us all as terrorists.
Not so in the case of just about every effort I have discovered scattered throughout social media including our own here!
The people behind this effort to boycott sponsors are not like Limbaugh’s own listeners who follow their leader like lambs. We are think-for-ourselfers. I left the following comment on yet another article about Media Matters supposed “leadership.”
“I am so tired of hearing this speculation that Media Matters is behind the efforts to remove Limbaugh from our publicly accessed, free, airways. I have two daughters in their 20′s, beautiful, educated and outspoken. They both take contraceptive pills. Neither of my daughters is a “sl*&” Just typing the word disturbs me. There is NO WORD that a woman can aim and shoot at a man that cuts as deep, demeans and diminishes a person. It is for this reason that we started a website/blog with information supporting various ways to boycott Limbaugh. http://boycottrushlimbaughssponsors.com/
We’d not heard of Media Matters until looking for lists of sponsors. And, quite frankly, their lists are Read more…
There has been a lot of talk about the fact that our friend Mr. Limbaugh seems to have crossed the line that one would assume is drawn by the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) parameters. While some argue it would violate Limbaugh’s first amendment rights, he is not protected by the first amendment because his programming is available on public airways is aired during time when children may access it.
The lines of decency are set for a reason and despite challenges by Supreme Court, the authority remains in the hands of the FCC. There have been calls to file complaints against Mr. Limbaugh. That is a good idea and we should all do that. But I suggest that you Read more…
