  •  I doubt there is any "may" about Clear Channel (1+ / 0-)

    dumping Rush. The man has become toxic beyond the Fox News audience; if there had been any push-back to the effort to contact his advertisers & ask them to stop advertising with him, they might have stood with him. But there hasn't been any notable examples of this.

    If Clear Channel could have cut Limbaugh loose before now, they would have. He's making them lose money they badly need to pay Bain Capital for their "consulting"! And CC is in the business not for ideology, good music, or anything except the bottom line.

    If the drug addict has read the writing on the wall -- or gets the message when CC shows little interest in renewing his contracts unless he basically gives them broadcast rights to his show for $0 -- he'll announce he's retiring from the business. Maybe go down to the Dominican Republic to play priest to those children he pays to take off their clothes & "confess" their sins. That way if the heat ever dies down, he could return to the US & start up his radio show again. After all, we all know the saying about a dog returning to its vomit.
