Cumulus Media  doesn't own the show they have carried it on some of their stations but dropping it in favor of their on host. For every station that drops him three others will fight for it in that market.

FTFA:  Limbaugh recently acknowledged difficulty selling ads, complaining ad buyers are young women fresh out of college, liberal feminists who hate conservatism

Yes Rush, the problem is young college educated women, not your (and the Republican party's) hate filled anti-woman, anti-minority, anti-social-progress, anti-poor, anti-intellectual rhetoric.  Keep on farking that chicken.

You'd be surprised My dad is a total internet noob and yet when I was busy removing the malware from his PC a few months ago I saw RushLimbaugh.com as one of the few websites he goes to.

Pretty sad too.

A lot won't and it will cut into his overall reach. I was a huge Stern fan, and I know it is different, but I still have access and don't listen.

I used to listen to Stern back in high school, then he kept doing shows with porn stars, lesbians, etc, doing random sexy things on air and I realized 'you know, this would be entertaining enough on TV for a bit, but he doesn't seem to understand that a radio audience who can't see this isn't getting the full effect'.  Then it just got less and less funny, and I stopped.  I listened to Bob & Tom for a while, but I always seemed to hit the big commercial breaks on my way into work, so I've just given up on broadcast radio altogether.

Johnny Knoxville has a very entertaining show on Outlaw Country on Sirius, with good music, and it's commercial free.

Rush's listeners will seek him out. And those listeners are the hardcore voters who never miss a primary. So while Rush's income may be reduced, his impact on the Republican party will remain.
 
2013-07-29 01:34:56 AM  
I'm just gonna say it and don't jump on me for saying it, but Rush has turned into the blowhard that he used to rail against.  I listened to his show as a teenager, and he was entertaining.  He made politics fun, especially on his late night TV show.  I remember vividly how he said he had a liberal in the audience, and then this giant cardboard finger, complete with sound effect, decended from the ceiling to point this person out and EVERYBODY laughed.  He also once did a skit on Ross Perot that was pretty frikken awesome!  The commercials on his radio show were also pretty funny.

Now?  I tried listening to his show recently and couldn't get past five minutes before I became bored with it.  Sad, really.

And somebody mentioned Hannity.  During the Bostom bombing, I was trying to pull in AM radio out of Boston and stumbled across Hannity's show.  The comment he made about Obama making sure the surviving suspect would be Mirandized was sickening.  I felt like stopping, getting on my craptacular phone browser (I don't have a modern phone) to find his call-in number and tell him that the days of hauling people down to Gitmo were over, that this country was founded on the principle that everybody gets due process.

Its sad, really, what Republicans have become.  I used to be a register Republican, and even voted for Dumbya twice.  I'm registered Democrat now, simply because I want to vote in a primary and registered independents (like I had been) can't do that, and the Replublcan party requires a candidate to sell their soul to Roger Ailes and/or Karl Rove.

You know what else was funny about Limbaugh's tv show?  This.

Notabunny: Rush's listeners will seek him out. And those listeners are the hardcore voters who never miss a primary. So while Rush's income may be reduced, his impact on the Republican party will remain.


Anyone who listens to Rush regularly is likely too long gone anyway - they'll vote straight down the 'R' column no matter what.  However, the more his influence is chipped away, and the more the Republican party travels down the far right extremist rabbit hole, the most centrist and independent voter's they'll chase away.

Trying to change the minds of die-hard far right folks is pointless - they have no desire nor apparent ability to listen to or understand basic reasoning or logic.  The key to success is swaying as many of the middle as possible, and even more importantly making sure every liberal voter gets out and make their voice heard in every single election, especially the upcoming midterms.

The GOP has a dying base, but they also have the base most likely to make it to the polls.  Obama was able to make voting exciting for a younger generation for one election, but now we have to make that magic happen again for a midterm vote that many people won't even know is happening.

I'm assuming that many will be able to find him. And that, those who do, will be able to help others figure it out. But I know that there are people like my ex and her husband's family who gave up the internet and their computers long ago because they just couldn't figure out how to use them. My ex, her husband, and her husband's family are all big fans of Rush. I don't know if they are "average" but I doubt that they will be able to find him if he isn't available on the radio in their market.
 
2013-07-29 02:24:48 AM  
I thought Rush said that all the claims about his show not being able to find advertisers were being blown out of proportion by the liberal media.
 
2013-07-29 02:33:54 AM  
I don't believe the lieberal lamestream LSM media. Which this is on therefore invalid and clearly any quotes from Rush or his staffers are out of context or the result of an overzealous staffer. Non story, let's move on

Yes, Rush. And how does that make you fee?

Uh huh. And how long have you felt that way towards women?

OK. I see. And is there anything inside of you that hates women that would want them to hate you.

I see the problem, Rush. You really like men, Rush. You really really do. And you hate having to be married to a woman to pretend that you don't really love men. That is why you are so bitter. You love men and would love to be close to and intimate with a man. But your whole life has been a sham covering up just how much you would like homosexuality.

Nickster79: I thought Rush said that all the claims about his show not being able to find advertisers were being blown out of proportion by the liberal media.


And i'm sure that is what he will continue to say, right up to the point where he loses his national syndication and spirals further into obscurity.

*sigh*

I really hope this story turns out to be true.  lets just say I am cautiously optimistic about the story....but there remains the outside chance that someone out there on the right wing side might step up and save the Limbaugh show from destruction.

I'm gonna enjoy watching Rush Limbaugh's slow inevitable slide into obscurity and ignominy.

It couldn't happen to a more deserving individual.

quatchi: I'm gonna enjoy watching Rush Limbaugh's slow inevitable slide into obscurity and ignominy.

Oh he won't go quietly.  I fully expect a temper tantrum, screaming matches, and maybe even some vomiting of blood and bile.  Rush *might* get desperate enough to try a switch to satellite radio, or some kind of 'pay as you go' web format but....he's uncomfortable with the technology behind that change, and I doubt he'd want to make that switch.

now - i'm sure there will be those who say that Limbaugh can retire on his millions and live comfortably ever after.  which is true - he DOES have more money than he can ever spend in a single life time.  But...Rush *is* his show.  He has an almost pathological need for attention.  If/when Limbaugh loses his show I think that would hurt him more than anything any of us could ever do to him.  To fall from being the 'king of talk radio' to obscurity and oblivion would tear him to pieces.  It doesn't matter how much money he's got...not being on radio every day would burn him up inside.

Pretty much my take as well. If it was all about the money for him he would have retired years ago. I think he's actually more hooked on the attention he gets being Rush Limbaugh than he was on Oxy.

the last thing I want is for Limbaugh to die.  I want him to face the consequences of his actions.  losing his radio show due to his own asinine behavior would be almost poetic in terms of payback.  if/when it happens it will be entirely and solely the fault of Rush Limbaugh himself.  Not that Limbaugh wouldn't try and blame 'libruls' or Obama or some vast left wing conspiracy...but that would just be a smoke screen at best, and a fairly lame one at that.  If Limbaugh implodes he will be the ONLY reason for the implosion...and to a guy like Limbaugh that's a worse hell than you or I could dream up for him.

Soul? No. They're not dumping him because he's a vile bucket of rancid whale drek. They're dumping him because he's no longer profitable. If his ratings were still sky high and he could still get real advertisers he'd be sitting pretty.

 over 140 advertisers severed

A fact that upset Limbaugh so much that when most of them tried to come back, he turned them down. That's how bad off he is.

sexist attacks on women's health advocate Sandra Fluke

Otherwise known as 'treating a liberal woman the same way liberals treat conservative women'.

But most of all this continues to be funny because after every single solitary effort to make a 'liberal' talk radio went down in flames you're going on about how much trouble conservative talk radio is in? It's like watching watching a bunch of morons who have burned down their fifth consecutive house point and laugh at people who aren't keeping their pristine home in perfect repair anymore.

I'm "liberal" (well at this point I just consider myself anti-conservative) and political talk radio in general seems like a waste of time. The only talk radio I like (at this point I listen to podcasts since the FCC ruined talk radio) is comedic in nature. Why are you so proud that right wingers are in love with shiatty AM talk radio?
