elffster: quickdraw: Dr Dreidel: elffster: Dude. Hes so farked he can't possibly fix this. He pissed off the wimmens.

I'm wondering when the women of the GOP go all Lysistrata. I know there was that one state politician in VA who claimed a colleague's wife wouldn't sleep with him over the transvaginal ultrasound bill (and Olympia Snowe's "Fark you, that's why" resignation), but what's it gonna take for an actual sexual revolt within the GOP?


GOP women have sex?

Anal. They peg their mens w/ bibles.

Rush should take advantage of this turn of events to flip it. He should become ultra liberal, alienating his current audience and garnering a new ultra liberal audience to support him. He is just an entertainer after all.

Great Porn Dragon: Last count is actually at least 36--he's hemmorhaging them so badly that folks have had to resort to a spreadsheet to note who's still with him and who's given Rush sponsorship the golden boot.


this whole thing is driving the fark shills nuts. they can't STAND to see Rush taken down a notch.

I wonder how many sponsors Rush can lose before Clear Channel calls it quits and fires his ass?

Well how are the conservatrolls going to know what to say without him? Watching black dog desperately peddle the same obtuse statements for what - 4 days straight now?

that's another thing to consider - if Rush gets fired there is gonna be one EPIC level steel cage death match among the GOP commentariate to see who gets to replace him as leader of the Republican KGB. Followed by an immedate purge of the disloyal of course.

that should weaken the Republicans rather nicely before the General election this year.

Weaver95: aug3: do most of these guys have some kind of morality clause in their contracts?

I think so, yes. But I don't know what's in Limbaugh's contract.


I'm sure there's a clause that Clear Channel can drop him if the ratings or ad revenue drops below a certain level. Rush is the highest paid on air person at Clear Channel, and the bosses aren't going to keep a guy with a high price tag who can't make any money for them.

That's what hung Beck at Fox. He may have had a following, but none of them were buying ad time to compensate for his high price.
 
2012-03-06 08:36:06 PM  

Weaver95: Kome: I hope he didn't. I hope he just figured it was another day at the office and he was indifferent to the whole thing as he was saying it.

I think Rush's plan is to just downplay this as much as possible, then kinda/sorta suggest its all a liberal plot/1st amendment/unfairness thing and not his fault. I get the weird feeling that Rush *wants* to hit back at someone for this mess...but he can't figure out who's to blame.

yeah, I agree - Rush is expensive to own...and if he's not bringing in the big bucks anymore than that'll be that...he'll be fired so fast it'll make his head spin.

And if/when THAT happens, it's even odds on if he'll self destruct or rebuild himself from the ground up.

spongeboob: Weaver95: spongeboob: aug3: do most of these guys have some kind of morality clause in their contracts?

Probably. Add me to the list of people thinking Rush is going to end up on his own little domain on the web subscription only.
Weaver I will cover your first months subscription.

I think if Limbaugh loses his radio show, that'll be it - he'll retire and write a book or something. that's assuming his ego survives being crushed by 'the libruls' who were 'out to get him' for 'telling the truth'...

I think he would die or need mega Oxycontin if he didn't have the external validation of his audience.
A good read is http://www.amazon.com/Rush-Limbaugh-Story-Unauthorized-Biography/dp/03 12099061 (new window)

[ecx.images-amazon.com image 300x300]

He is still trying for daddy's approval and still feels shame about that time the girl refused to kiss him when they were playing spin the bottle.
/That is probably why he does the whole slut thing.


Rush is a closeted gay man who despises women. He is a self-loathing black hole of emptiness. There is a good chance that he is also a pederast.

His contract is not 400 million per year.

I based my comment on the assumption that it was relevant to the 2008 8 year deal for $400,000,000.

Without national advertising dollars, he's screwed. The annual float for that is still WAY over local radio budgets, even if you aggregated them nationally.

trivial use of my dark powers: I kind of miss the pre-internet days when paranoid idiots like this squatted under the kitchen table at home, nervously chewing on their tinfoil hats, peeping fearfully out through tiny holes scratched into the black paint covering their windows, thinking that they were the only ones that knew the truth. And their families just didn't talk about "Uncle Bobby and his problems.". Now they seem to be all over the dammed place and their families are driving them to Tea Party rallies.

Umfufu: I just hope he charges them at least double when they want back on the bandwagon.


Right. The desperation discounts have got to be flying just to keep people on board now. That's the only incentive that Clear Channel can offer, as they sure as hell can't be so confidant that this is just going to blow away in a couple of days. It has blown up too big, too fast. Even if some of the old advertisers do come back, they won't be willing to pay the old prices for quite some time. The reason they're leaving is that he's damaging their reputations merely by association. And they can't trust him to not bring more shame upon their houses. Any price increase at all is going to be out of the question for a while. Double simply isn't going to happen.

I sound fat: Weaver95: Limbaugh's lost 28 advertisers at last count....and that might continue through the week.

he's lost a ton of financial support.


citation needed

/I mean, seeing as he really only has about 28 advertisers


And citation granted:

36 confirmed to have ceased advertising on the show as of 6 March (approximately half of these were companies that had bought "block advertising" through Premiere Networks or stations broadcasting Rush Limbaugh)

Companies known to have advertised on Rush Limbaugh as of 6 March (approximately two thirds of these have since issued statements that they did not approve of Limbaugh's statements and will not be advertising in future on Rush Limbaugh if they can help it)

(There is also a spreadsheet in the works, but it is presently offline as it's needing some fairly major revision--mostly confirming reports of even more advertisers presently dropping out.)

As it is, the only major national level direct advertisers left for Rush Limbaugh seem to be Lifelock, a few "investment companies" targeting goldbugs, and a few "credit repair" services--the rest seem almost entirely to be local "block" advertising on Cumulus or Clear Channel stations, or "block" advertising purchased from Premiere Networks where the company has not yet specified to NOT advertise on Rush Limbaugh.

(Complicating this--at least two companies have claimed that they've been told they CANNOT specify not to be on Rush Limbaugh due to being "low tier" advertising, and there have been multiple reported cases where companies have ALREADY specified in past not to have their advertisements on Rush Limbaugh but these agreements were apparently disregarded by Premiere Networks (Geico, most notably, has specified this as has JC Penney)--indicating that Premiere Networks has quite possibly been violating advertising contracts with its own clients AND may be forcing smaller companies into unfavorable contracts where they're forced essentially to have their adverts aired whenever or pull advertising altogether.)
