  •  great point. 'his' stations are often the loudest (0+ / 0-)

    around and i'll bet most of those cos are tied into advertising cos that are making market based decisions.

    and it's fucking stupid. just about all RW radio blowhards work for the fossil fuels industry and against solar. they work to increase fossil subsidies and reduce alt energy subsidies. they work to kill or stop energy efficiency efforts on local and national levels. anything the fossil fuels ind wants, they do the groundwork for. the solyndra thing was another talk radio success for them.

    i've heard national brand window cos on limbaugh/RW radio - pella and anderson- who would have huge gains if a national energy policy mandated certain standards- instead they advertise on the stations that play a huge part in killing those local and national efforts. it's idiotic. or any biz in construction that would benefit from nationally mandated retrofitting.

    there are plenty of other idiots like that - consider the real estate industry that took a huge hit because of the deregulation RW radio was instrumental in selling.

    hell, just look at our 'institutions of higher learning' as they prop up the talk radio industry while mocking their own mission statements.

    that's why it's so important for the left to recognize and chronicle RW radio and give it the credit it deserves. and get those ad agencies sensitive to it.

    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.
