    from this diary just how large that group of loyal, Anti-Limbaugh Limbaugh listeners there are!

    I think martianexpatriate understood that and was awkwardly musing about the actual size of the Pro-Limbaugh Limbaugh listener group. I find that Limbaugh talking points appear in our local newspaper's (the Charlotte Observer's) reader comments literally minutes after Limbaugh spews them. In fact, some of the more enlightened commenters have taken to responding to the usual rightwing idiots by saying things like "guess what you were listening to at 1:00 today!". Limbaugh's Army is a crucial cog in his propaganda machine.

    So, as bad as the Limbaugh Warriors are in terms of infectiously spreading their Dear Leader's daily spew of lies, bigotry, and general vitriol, it is reassuring to know that there are many good guys doing just the opposite!

    •  Rush is in deep doo doo (5+ / 0-)

      His audience share suffered greatly after the ratings company switched from diaries (where listeners wrote in the radio programs/stations they listened to) to monitors that recorded what was actually listened to and for how long.

      And then this.  His own doing.  

      He's got a long contract worth millions and millions at a time when ads can't be sold even at cut rates.  Bad news for his bosses.

      Justice is often not quick, but it's welcome when it comes.  This isn't a matter of free speech, it's a matter of the free market coming to rectify things like the RW says it does.

      There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
