    Conservative personalities Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity all made Forbes magazine’s 2013 list of the 100 most powerful celebrities — the only political celebrities, left or right, to do so.

    Among the three, Beck led the way. Forbes estimated that he earned a staggering $90 million dollars over the last 12 months, more than even Oprah Winfrey, who earned an estimated $77 million and took the top spot on Forbes’ list.

    Despite being the 7th highest earner on the list, Beck was ranked 34th overall.

    Both Limbaugh and Hannity are moving to WOR/Clear Channel - the #1 radio network in the US. It's really too bad liberals like metta8 don't check their facts:

    Who cares, they are both brain dead entertainers just sucking the cash out of stupid neo-cons. There's an idiot born every minute and Rush Limbaugh is willing to peddle his inept hate to any and all willing to buy the useless products he sells on his comedy show.

    I'd actually agree mostly - though these guys are better than the braindead and often deceptive liberal commentators disguised as news broadcasters who came before them. That's why they're so popular.

    I love how you post this crap about them and then claim to:

    #1 Have hardly ever listened to them.
    #2 Not really even like them.

    Gee .... see how if you put on Red State colored glasses everything seems to be different then it Really is

    Rid they got dumped ... poor ratings and sponsors who are leaving like rats off a sinking ship

    Yeah they made money ... cuz that's what they really are
    You buy Beck's pants yet?

    But what they are and what makes them dangerous is that republicans whimper and cry like little girls when they crack the whip
    You wanna know who's running the republican agenda?
    Just look at the fat man and the former Alcoholic

    And yet both those statements are true. First, I didn't have access to either - though I'm assuming you can find it on SiriusXM somewhere but I haven't looked. And second, I prefer my news to be as fact driven as possible and leave the analysis and interpretation to other sources.

    I have merely posted this given the rather skewed and factually wrong postings from metta8. This thread is in response to his which I can only assume at this point is deliberately misleading.

    Heh - if only I could "fail" as hard as Glenn Beck or Limbaugh. Unfortunately they both drive ratings - and in Beck's case, he's made a lot more money since being "dumped".

    riddler78, you said of both Beck and Limbaugh that "Unfortunately they both drive ratings". From your point of view why is that unfortunate?

    I don't see how this means metta8's postings are "factually wrong" and "deliberately misleading". So Rush made a lot of money. He's paid what his contract requires him to be paid.
    Does this mean his sponsors aren't really leaving? No.
    Does this mean Clear Channel isn't losing money over him? No.

    This is somewhat reminiscent of when Mariah Carey was high on the list because Virgin paid her millions to get rid of her.

    If you have Sirius/XM you might want to give this a try
