    Easy solution: Slash the amount of money paid to the syndicator, and therefore slash Limbaugh's pay to counteract the effects of the loss in advertising revenue.

    I won't be happy until there's a skewer rod through his body rotating over an open flame while the fat drips down and sizzles in the coals. And we can all watch it live over the internet.

    I hope that's not too harsh.

    The only "rush" I get is from my job and my hobbies.

    That sorry excuse for a man hasn't "graced" the pixels of my TV screen since the 90's.

    And the fact that he's mostly on radio anyway speaks volumes. Who listens to radio anymore?

    Well, people can still listen to it online; that's probably how he stays afloat...

    StopRush Contributes to


    "Worst Drop in Advertising


    in Radio History"




    As mentioned in this diary earlier today, things are not getting better for embattled media giant Clear Channel. The company is still losing advertisers in droves from its once crown jewel Rush Limbaugh Show thanks to the efforts of groups like the Flush Rush Facebook community and the #stoprush Twitter campaign.

    topathlete saidWhat is your problem metta8? If you don't like Rush Limbaugh, here's an easy solution. Don't listen to him. Did that concept ever occur to you, or do you believe in a country where opinions not like yours should be silenced?

    Regardless of the popularity or lack thereof of one person, the multiple outlets that voice a different opinion than yours are very much alive and well. You can't stand multiple opinions of course, but that's the way it is.

    Must be a Canadian thing to substitute names and think you're cleaver, eh? MIL does the same thing. Your logic breaks down because I am not advocating the silencing of metta8. I know how much the RJ members love his little leftist articles and how posting to RJ must be a big part of his life. My point questions why metta8 wants to silence opinions that don't agree with his? I don't expect him to answer unless he gets his Mommy to write something for him. icon_lol.gif


    Hey - it's got nothing to do with being Canadian - though it's a form of logic I'd wish he'd use to his own sometimes inane posts. Nevertheless, I don't think Rush need fear anything - given that if his web stats are anything to go by his audience has actually grown. The last time I checked, that's what advertisers are after. On the other side of it, metta8 has been posting previously debunked sources claiming his demise.

    I for one welcome metta's articles so they can be appropriately ridiculed icon_wink.gif

    I just realized you're Canadian, and would never group you with the others. I enjoy how you anger them, especially that whale in Florida who often gives fitness advice. As for metta8, I think it's funny how he never participates in discussions. In response to their expected comments, he doesn't bother me at all. He is mostly an amusement, someone able to post links but not able to discuss or defend them.


    Heh - was doing some simple digging - even shortly after the supposed boycott, not only was Rush's audience 60% greater in the month after, the WaPo was pointing out the effect of the boycott was less than stated.

    yourname2000 saidHahaha....I love watching you flustered right-wing trolls flail around when you run into someone like metta who's immune to you. icon_lol.gif I can picture your panties getting tighter and tighter with each post he writes.

    And Riddler, you only wish your threads (which are exactly the same style, just thoroughly misleading and manipulative) were as popular as his. icon_lol.gif


    Heh - you seem to think that I seek popularity - or care if his threads or my threads are more popular. I actually started posting because he does, and now, it's just habit. If those like you choose to read information that is misleading and manipulative - that's certainly your prerogative - that you seem to so willingly choose. Meanwhile you show yourself to be the bitter old lonely shrew who apparently drinks just a bit too much icon_wink.gif

    Nooooo....someone who creates a threads like he's gasping for breath couldn't possibly be an attention whore, hahaha. You're RJ's joke...just too stupid to see it. Don't ever stop....not that you ever could, lol.

    He never comes across as peevish though.

    You'd be so much more fully informed on topics, and less influenced by radical anti-women, anti-gay, anti-minority, anti-environment propaganda, if it was dipshit Limbaugh you didn't hear. icon_biggrin.gif

    Who says I'm not "fully informed"? True, I frequently disagree with you, but that doesn't 'necessarily' mean that I'm not fully informed. I presumed in your OPINION that the term "fully informed" means agreeing with you? And in reality, I seldom listen to Rush. I read and I read versus listen because I can read much faster than someone can speak.
