    Its great that commercial sponsors are leaving him, as they should. His words will not be shut down by censorship, from the FCC.

    Rush's funding will, I fear, not be threatened. His blathering will continue as long as the Kochs and all their friends have trillions of play money.

    A true craftsman will meticulously construct the apparatus of his own demise.

    •  but what made limbaugh was lack of challenge and (4+ / 0-)

      real competition.

      what makes him and hannity and many of the other think tank-coordinated  blowhards so effective  as a propaganda tool is that their coordinated repetition of lies and distortions is virtually unchallenged in their realm - political  talk radio.

      there has always been billions for buying media and politicians but the unchallenged talk radio monopoly allows them to create  made-to-order constituencies for any occasion within days or over years to enable their bought and paid-for politicians that would otherwise look a lot more like billionaires' politicians.

      with that talk radio monopoly, still largely unchallenged by the left, the most ignorant sycophant paid-for politician has a smorgasbord of 'popular' prechewed talking points to choose from - that's the tea party constituency at his back.

      that's how benghazi and debt ceiling distortions and lies  became talking points on SOTU responses and confirmation hearings.

      the kochs can pay him all they want but once americans get up in his face to yell back (on his own turf- as the boycott represents) he becomes challenged and exposed and that monster intimidating/enabling bandwagon he used to drive will lose it's acceptability and certainty and will fall off the road.

      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.
