    The great majority of that article is crap. Rush gets money from his national account advertisers, that he typically endorses. The great majority of the advertisers that "dumped him" are the local advertisers that said they didn't want to advertise during his time slot, and were moved to other time slots on that station. The stations weren't out any revenue, and Rush never saw any of that revenue anyway, so it was a non-issue to him.
    A couple of his national accounts that pulled their ads have already started asking to come back, and he told at least one to go pound sand.

    I like Mike Huckabee, but he's a politician, not an entertainer. He'll never get the ratings Rush does.

    Well said!

    Rush Limbaugh is the most listened to radio host in America.
    Mike Huckabee is a washed up politician.

    Rush Limbaugh is hated for one reason: He's effective.
    He hits them where it hurts and they don't like it.

    Who cares about some drug addict? Rush is the last person to be spouting off his fat jowls about other people. He is nothing but a self-righteous P____, calls some girl a slut, he must have forgotten the pills he used to shovel down his throat.

    In the huge and influential Greater Washington DC Metropolitan Area market, Rush went on FM last year.

    WMAL AM 630 still broadcasts him, as does the new powerhouse WMAL FM 105.9 with a signal that stretches from Baltimore to West Virginia.

    But if you want to pretend that Rush is going off the air, go ahead.:notlistening:

    Mike Huckabee should be extradited to Washington state to face murder charges for pardoning a convicted killer.

    I don't dislike Huckabee but he's no Rush Limbaugh.

    The same goes for O'Reilly, John Gibson as well as a few others.

    Our major AM station in the Detroit is WJR and if they drop Rush.....I drop them.

    Mediamatters has been covering Rush's advertisers on WABC for the last few days. Nary a single product being sold. Even some dead air at the end of the hour.



    How can you spin this?

    This is why the liberals would like to replace Rush with him. Less competition/fear.

    I still welcome Huckabee as a broadcaster from the right.

    I'll bet you didn't notice that most of those advertisers are either US government (the Obama administration) or run by liberals. When their donations drop they will go crawling back.

    Then again I wouldn't trust anything put out by Media Smatters either.

    Well, IF that "if" happens, send me an email. Until then.... article is a little premature and mostly speculation, seems like.

    And I say that even though I'm no fan of Rush.

    Are you slow? How could anybody look at that list and see the only advertisements left on el-Rushbo's show are governmental non-partisan giant package ad buys...

    And when you say: "When their donations drop they will go crawling back." I guess I don't understand what you mean. Donations to whom? They'll go crawling back to the show that they alone are advertising on? You make no sense.

    And if you don't believe mediamatters then just follow the link. They provide audio links to every commercial break as direct evidence.

    Limbaugh's show is an advertising wasteland. The market has spoken and his scumbag behavior has accrued a great cost. His core audience is comprised of old, angry, white males and that's not much of a draw for advertisers. Less so in the future. Will Rush disappear? Not by a long shot. But he really shot himself in the foot this time.

    That's all that needs to be read. Anything that follows is guaranteed to be a waste of time.
