  •  70+ unis endorse 170+ limbaugh stations w/sports (11+ / 0-)

    broadcasting and the list is at the link in my sig.

    when a few unis are forced by students, faculty, and community to stop mocking their own mission statements and look for non-partisan, non-racist, non-global warming denying, alternatives for their sports broadcasting the others will have to follow suit and right wing radio will die.

    just tonight i heard 3  times during a univ of colorado basketball broadcast the announcement : "850 KOA, home of the buffs and rush limbaugh!"

    RW radio and rush limbaugh can't survive without the ad money and community cred they get from those associations. they cant survive without their protected unchallenged monopoly.

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

    •  Universities have to be accredited by NCATE (5+ / 0-)

      Universities seek accreditation by NCATE every three to five years.  One of the standards they MUST comply with deals with diversity: NCATE expects that a professional education unit’s conceptual framework include a commitment to preparing candidates to support leaning for all students.
      Standard 4: Diversity expects that the unit designs, implements and evaluates curriculum and experiences for candidates to acquire and apply knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to help all students learn. It includes the expectation that candidates have the opportunity to interact with candidates, faculty, and P–12 students from diverse groups.

      I would question ANY university's claim to successfully meet Standard 4 when they advertise on Rush Limbaugh's show.

        is what i heard 3 times (at least) last night. i heard it before on one of their athletic broadcasts and listened to their basketball game and i heard it 3 times.

        thanks for the NCATE info.

        that station is one of many in the US piggybacking universities. KOA is the RW radio mothership - for more than 20 years their local and national talkers have been selling everything GOP and anti diversity and anti education.

        the local blowhards have huge volume for influencing university related elections and issues, like which uni regents and presidents are not acceptable.

        NCATE standards and the university mission statements should provide university and community activists with plenty of ammunition to pressure their unis out of all RW radio, not just limbaugh.

        until that happens non-action along those lines means their own unis are undermining all their other activism.

        The author claimes that universities "sponsor Limbaugh" if a radio station that airs their games also happens to air Limbaugh's show.

        It's a bogus claim, for any number of reasons.
