Speaking yesterday on the Ed Schultz radio show, industry insider Holland Cooke credited a persistent online activist movement with completely destroying right wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh's business model by using the very free speech that El Rushbo claims gives him carte blanche to do what he does.
With the latest round of ratings just emerging, Cooke revealed that, in the largest markets, Limbaugh's stations are in terrible shape:
Holland Cooke @HollandCooke
NEW #radio ratings are in.
Big-city #RushLimbaugh stations are cellar-dwellers:#22 @ NY,#37 @ LA,#27 @ SFO,#19 @ Chicago,#21 Dallas
6:51 PM - 14 Apr 2014
In fact, in New York--where Limbaugh moved to Clear Channel's WOR a few months back--there are four stations ahead of Limbaugh's that aren't even English language stations.
And a classical music station.
So just what are these online activists doing that is having such a dramatic effect on the onetime king of right wing radio?
It's quite simple. They're telling Limbaugh's advertisers what he is saying.
