  •  Where these callers come from... (13+ / 0-)

    Because of contract issues, I'm going to be vague, however I work part-time for a radio call-in company. We are given scripts ahead of time, concerning what a station would like during the call. I can tell you with a fair amount of assurance that this is what this call is. The way that Rush does the whole,'I had a feeling that's where you were going', is pretty indicitive of the scripts I receive. The fact that this is how a lot of these radio programs get their callers, just shows how much these groups do not want the truth, they just want to tell people what they want to hear.

    •  Premiere On Call seems to be the main one (7+ / 0-)

      It's been covered quite a bit.

      The company responsible for syndicating big conservative radio names like Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity has been using paid actors to call in to their radio shows.

      According to a recent report in Tablet Magazine, Premiere Radio Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, hired actors to call in as guests.
