Momentum is growing. 25,000 facebook users liked/shared a recent diary about Limbaugh - in in five days. [http://www.dailykos.com/...]
Similar diaries - thousands of likes. What does it mean? It means the tremendous and relentlessness work by people in groups like, Daily Kos, StopRush, Boycott Rush, Being Liberal, UniteWomen.org, Media Matters and FlushRush, - is working. The general public is now eager and willing to speak out, sign petitions, and boycott Limbaugh sponsors. Thousands of advertisers have left. How do facebook 'likes/shares' affect the boycott? One example: 11 universities were listed in last week's aforementioned diary. Four days after the diary was published, FOUR universities had already left his show. They were slammed with messages from the public. And that's how it works.On his show last week, Rush said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, for the first time in my life I am ashamed of my country..."
One reply: "As an American, it is NOT the first time I've been ashamed of you, Rush Limbaugh. For 25 years, you have filled our public airways with hatred, lies, racism, sexism, gay-bashing, and bigotry. You tried to bully and silence a young women who was advocating for mandated health insurance for birth control. You called her a 'slut'. Now, your sponsors are dropping fast. Your parent company, Clear Channel, is in big financial trouble and the Right Wing and the Left Wing are both protesting your network. Have you heard, Rush? Clear Channel blocked a Clint Eastwood gun ad. You're having to depend on organizations like FreedomWorks and the Tea Party to help subsidize your smut. So Rush, you can go now, quietly, or wait, and go down ugly. It's your 25th year. Make it like it was your 'choice'. We don't care. Just go."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
