Could Rush Limbaugh be gone from radio airwaves by the end of the year? I know, for some of us it feels like a dream, but the possibility does exist.
When Limbaugh called university student Sandra Fluke a “slut” in February of 2012, he lost several sponsors. Fluke, a Georgetown law student had called congress and asked them to ensure there was a mandate that insurance coverage include the purchase of birth control.
Limbaugh insists the liberal media twisted his words, and added meaning to the story he had not intended.
Cumulus Media and Limbaugh may end their affiliation agreement by the end of 2013.
Politico and The New York Daily News reported that 40 Cumulus-owned radio stations would lose the rights to the most popular talk-radio program in the country if the move takes place.
The show could be picked up by competing affiliates in Washington, New York, Chicago, Dallas, and other major markets. If that were to happen, it was cause turmoil by shaking-up on air talent and time slots. Contracts would have to be re-written, creating a financial conundrum.
Insiders report that Limbaugh is very angry at Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey for blaming advertising losses on him.
Limbaugh signed a contract in 2008 for $400 million through 2016. His show airs for three hours each weekday beginning at noon, Eastern Time.
Limbaugh is the only conservative that surpasses FOX News in the creation of fear, and the use of emotional blackmail to create an audience. His ‘reactionary’ views are aimed at creating an irreparable division between liberals and conservatives. He doesn’t believe in any form of compromise, his goal is total domination by the extreme right wing of the Republican Party.
In addition, his remarks have been criticized by many organizations as fallacious, inaccurate or both.
He has been called a racist, a bigot, and a homophobe, all with complete accuracy. He is emblematic of the core reason why our country is so divided, and our government is broken.
No longer having Limbaugh insult the airways would be an act of patriotism.
