Why doesn't this article have a list of the 48 advertisers so we know who to boycott?

Why is this a conversation? Did Rush drop all of the local talkers on these stations for a wanna be that is going to pick up his marbles and go home after one year? The "No Rush/Hannity/Imus dictates have been going on for over a decade. What do they have to do with 2013 revenue losses? Sum this up in one word...absurd

KNST is the Clear Channel talker in Tucson, AZ and for months have been airing FREE promos for Limbaugh & Hannity instead of paid ads.

I enjoy yer stuff...but this time..
Rush is largely responsible for any backbone you see occasionally from Boehner or McConnell. Limbaugh didn't suggest Romney and he certainly didn't suggest McCain. Getting more excited about Cinco De Mayo won't solve the GOPs problems.
You are on target with Dickey. He and Hogan are my candidates for eunuch of the year.

"Dilemma: Who is worse, Lew Dickey or Rush Limbaugh? Rush has lost two national elections in a row (as has Karl Rove), so Rush has been rendered impotent to affect change. The question
comes down to: do you think it’s possible for Dickey to damage
the radio business even more? I’m just asking.” --Giff

We have carried "Rush" for 20 years and during the last 5 years our advertising revenue have been the best ever! Even after the Sandra Fluke incident in Feb 2012--our sales have gone UP! 2012 was the best year we ever had and 2013 looks to be close to duplicating 2012! Who ever is blaming Rush should read chapter two of the Magic of Thinking Big --- "Excusitis, the failures Disease!" and then look in the mirror!!

Right now Radio Ink is reporting on the existence of the controversy. It would be fascinating to hear what Radio Ink reports about the substance of it- is Limburgh's program part of the problem?

Considering Radio Ink's position as an industry source, this could shed some real light on the underlying issues instead of adding to the surface chatter.

Yours, Jesse
