Skip to comments.Contact Your Local Rush Limbaugh Radio Station Today! (vanity)

HillaryMatters.org is calling for people to call/email their local radio stations that carry Rush Limbaugh's show to encourage those stations to remove him because of the phony phony soldier fatwa against him.
I say, yes, let's contact our local Rush Limbaugh station today and PRAISE them for carrying Rush's show and for supporting Free Speech in America today!! I've already contacted mine (wbap.com) and it only took about 5 minutes.
I think we need to FReep our radio stations and commend them for keeping Rush on the air!
BTW--isn't HillaryMatters.org breaking the rules for a 501c by promoting this sort of thing?? I thought they were supposed to be non-profit, non-partisan, etc.!
Campaign Finance laws do not apply to the Clintons. Please stop this hysteria.
We are having a coronation, not an election....sheesh!
Owned by MoveOn.PAC?
If Hillary is stupid enough to get into this smear, by all means let her.
Would also be nice to get some guys over in Iraq to hold a sign: "Senator Reid:Shut up. Rush wants us to win." Or "Real Soldiers Fight to Win". Would have a nice impact, like the one after Kerry called all the troops stupid.
Many stations are only on the air thanks to Rushs ad revenue. He usually brings in enough revenue to subsidize the local “talents” lack of it. He is their cash cow and they know it. Why do you think Err Amerika was such a failure? NO dough.
Since you’re emailing them about Rush, take the opportunity and make sure you put in a good word for the OTHER folks you like at that station.
Good ideas all.
Yes!!! The best way to stop this nonsense is to make it politically clear the Dems can’t get away with these kinds of tactics anymore.
Sure, Rush can defend himself, but this is about private citizens telling these lying Dems that they aren’t going to get away with this baloney any more!!
I would also add, call your Senators and demand that Harry Reid step down from the Majority leadership post. Anyone in Congress who goes after private citizens this way needs to be removed. This kind of abuse of power will not stand. And it is up to us to demand that the Democrats feel the heat for their hubris.
I agree about WBAP not pulling Rush in this market, but I sent them a note anyway to let them know he is the reason I listen to their station.
I’ve never hosted a radio show so I wouldn’t know how physically demanding it might be so maybe someone out there can fill me in?
Our local Rush station, KMJ, is doing a Rush poll. The support for Rush is running around 94% to 95%.
One of my dreams would be a debate between the famed lawyer/most intelligent woman in the world and Rush. ‘Twould be beautiful...the high school grad completely eviscerating the top of Yale’s law class. The woman is a self centered, grifting, never do anything without her husband maroon.
so, um, Rush is losing by one percentage? /s
link page that has many conservative hosts and now it doesn’t matter what local stations do.
I beg to differ, Ron.
ERR Amerika failed because their programming stunk!!! Thus, they received minimal advertising dollars.
Which, by the way, is just fine by me.
I can do that, no problem. But radio station managers count all calls, positive and negative, as a sign of a show’s success. The salesmen for airtime show those figures to prospective advertisers as a total. All calls are good news for the station and the show. More calls indicates more listeners which justifies higher ad rates.
I heard that. Did she give her handle? Rush was very enthusiastic about FReepers. Go Rush!
Did she give her handle?
I e-mailed my Limbaugh affiliate in Houston, and got the following encouraging response from the Program Director at KTRH 740 AM.
Thanks for the note...
We’re standing by Rush...no worries.
Have a great weekend...

My original e-mail:
It has come to my attention that there is currently an orchestratedcampaign by “MediaMatters” underway to pressure radio stations to remove Rush Limbaugh from their lineup based on his “phony soldiers” remarks.
I am writing at this time to express my support for Mr. Limbaugh, and to urge you not to give in to any pressure you might be under. Rush Limbaugh is as troop-friendly as any radio-host in this country. His remarks have been taken out of context and intentionally misconstrued to create controversy where none exists.
This campaign has little to do with support for soldiers, and is instead an orchestrated effort to censor one of the leading conservative voices in this nation.
I am a regular listener to 740am, 950am, 790am, and various other ClearChannel properties. I urge you to withstand this pressure, and assure you that I, and thousands like me, will continue to support your radio station.
Rush luuuvs us! ;^)
Will write and call my local station for sure! My local station is owned by Clear Channel, but will do it anyway because it might be that the local station could choose to put Rush on at a different time. Often wondered how they know the number of listeners they have. If I thought it would help to have every radio in my house tuned into Rush, I sure would do it!!:)
Thanks! It was great to get to talk to Rush! Wish I had remembered to tell him about this, but bet his staff will have seen it. Just shows again the lies of AL GORE coming out in the UK over his movie being shown in schools. Was interested it happened on CNN!! :)
High fives to Maha Rushie!! :-)
Can I have your autograph, LOL? :-)
Kudos to you, seekthetruth! Your name is the very reason for FR and Rush’s success! :-)
It should read HillaryMattersNBC.CBS.ABC.NYT.org
Thanks, it was a joy to talk with Rush! I am just delighted that the DEMS have finally done enough to help do themselves in! Doing what they did and continue to do to Rush is sure making it happen. It is backfiring big time and they are too stupid to see it coming. Hope the Media Matters/Hillary connection is explored. They are tax exempt and Hillary said she helped “start and support” Media Matters! Where is the IRS????? :)
Thank you for taking the time to contact us. And most of all, thank you for your support of Rush Limbaugh and WBAP. As you know, there is no one on the media scene who supports our military more than Rush (although Mark Davis, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin are right there with Rush!)
We stand firmly behind Rush and are proud to be affiliated with the program. One only has to look at the consistent position he has taken throughout his career to realize these accusations against him are groundless.
Again, thank you for your support of Rush. And thanks for listening to WBAP.
