Advertisers Pulling Out Of Hate Radio

Mar 10, 2012 | Posted by: Sei | Full story: lezgetreal.com

The topic of discussion around the water coolers lately. . .ok, at least around our water cooler- er- coffee pot is the possible demise of Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh’s attack on Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke may have been the last straw for many advertisers, and like an intricately structured dominoes set up, the whole of Talk Radio may be about to fall over, and it could effect everything from same-sex marriage to contraception to abortion.

I doubt it spells the end of right wing hate radio. Those people do nothing but drive in their cars. Walking more than two blocks or, gasp, taking public transit, is unAmerican to them. They have to listen to something to confirm their unhinged belief system.

Besides, the drug addict has been doing worse than the "slut" thing for decades with no ill effect, other than losing out on ABC Mon Night Football:

As a young broadcaster in the 1970s, Limbaugh once told a black caller: "Take that bone out of your nose and call me back." A decade ago, after becoming nationally syndicated, he mused on the air: "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"

In 1992, on his now-defunct TV show, Limbaugh expressed his ire when Spike Lee urged that black schoolchildren get off from school to see his film Malcolm X: "Spike, if you're going to do that, let's complete the education experience. You should tell them that they should loot the theater, and then blow it up on their way out."

In a similar vein, here is Limbaugh's mocking take on the NAACP, a group with a 90-year commitment to nonviolence: "The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."

When Carol Moseley-Braun (D-IL) was in the U.S. Senate, the first black woman ever elected to that body, Limbaugh would play the "Movin' On Up" theme song from TV's Jeffersons when he mentioned her. Limbaugh sometimes still uses mock dialect -- substituting "ax" for "ask"-- when discussing black leaders.

I agree, Limbaugh is a piece of garbage. Savage is even a worse piece of excrement.

I assume you mean Michael Savage. And if you don't that's because you're unaware of him.

His ratings have been slipping, so he spewed out this controversial garbage and guess what ....
His ratings are back up.
I'm sure he's grateful for your help.

Keep on playing this stupid game and you'll eventually lose and who knows ... maybe Rick will be your next president.
Enjoy what you have earned.

Well, you seem so confused I had no way of knowing whether you meant Dan Savage, since you didn't think to make that clear.

Trash TV and radio is trash, regardless of whether it comes from the political right or left.

It's unfortunate they share the name isn't it.

Michael Savage isn't his real name either. It's Alan Weiner.
