Rush Limbaugh: Still has the biggest sponsor on his side
The Los Angeles Times ^ | March 5, 2012 | Rene Lynch

Posted on 03/05/2012 12:11:33 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Rush Limbaugh is probably not sweating this one, folks. The critics keep piling on. But the immensely popular talk radio host has the biggest "sponsor" of all on his side: Clear Channel radio network.

Arizona Sen. John McCain, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, and New York's Cardinal Timothy Dolan are among the latest to criticize Limbaugh for calling a Georgetown University student a "slut" and a "prostitute" after she testified in favor of birth control insurance coverage.

But Clear Channel's Premiere Radio Networks Inc., which hosts Limbaugh's conservative talk show, has voiced its unwavering support for Limbaugh, whose contract runs through 2016.

"The contraception debate is one that sparks strong emotion and opinions on both sides of the issue," Premiere Networks told the Associated Press. "We respect the right of Mr. Limbaugh, as well as the rights of those who disagree with him, to express those opinions."

A representative for Premiere declined to tell the news service how much revenue the company is losing over the recent loss of advertisers seeking to distance themselves from Limbaugh and his comments....

Maybe the clear channel spokesman should start hosting a show noon-3.
At least one person still has stones.

Rush has endured worse. They’ve hated him for 25 years. Just the latest futile attempt.

Actually... by apologizing, Rush has fueled the fires of hell... where the attack upon him was forged. Rush blew it bigtime by apologizing to Fluke (fluck) and now the #2 Rat in the House wants her to sue him. Give the left an inch and they will rip out your entrails. I never thought Rush to be a fool... until yesterday.

Rush should do what Beck did and have his own Internet-based show.. For as long as Rush is on radio, he will be forever beholden to his advertisers. While advertising can also be a part of Internet-based programming, the main vehicle for revenue is SUBSCRIBERSHIP WHERE THE SHOW HOST BECOMES BEHOLDEN TO THE SUBSCRIBER, NOT THE ADVERTISER. This makes far more sense to me than the antiquated ways of radio!

Rush defused the situation by apologizing. He had no choice. Now when Republicans are hammered about Rush's comments, they can say he sincerely apologized, and it's time to move on...

Yep. I agree with this. I think both the sponsor issues and the fact that the candidates and the congressional leaders were being forced to deal with this at the end of last week, both had a lot to do with this. The sponsors that folded were going to fold, but he can make those up quickly. He needed to pull back to help get this back to the issue at hand for the elections...government power out of control. He unfortunately let this become the distraction the left was looking for to make it about women and not about government, so he pulled back and refocused his message while the spotlight is on to the real issues at hand.

I was shocked to see his statement Saturday, but do not hold it against him.

“Now when Republicans are hammered about Rush's comments, they can say he sincerely apologized, and it's time to move on... “

Who is going to hammer them? Every damn one I heard spent as much time hammering Rush as the Democrats did.
Would someone please tell me, how in God's name do the Republican hope to defeat Obama this fall? By piling on Limbaugh? Not a damn one of them made any mention of the vile names the Democrats and their surrogates call Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter et al. No, all they did was pile on.
99% of the media jumped into the fray when Obama called on them, 100% of the Democrats and about 80% of the Republicans. 100% of the Republican leadership.
As my tagline suggests, after a lifetime membership in the perpetual minority party, NO MORE.
2012 may be the first time since I first voted in 1964 that I will not vote for a single Republican.

When? Last time I saw him speak on the issue was with D. Gregory, and he certainly didn't criticize Rush at all. Did he later in the day or is this BS?

Some clarification is needed. aS i UNDERSTAND IT, Rush's show is syndicated by Clear Channel...as such it pays hims some $30+ mill ( or more) a year for the program, which Rush produces, and he solely responsible for the content. Clear Channel in turn has the right to run the show on any of its stations, whenever it chooses..according to the terms of the syndication agreement, and TO SELL COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING to whomever it chooses, and is willing to pay what they charge, be it nationa ad campaigns, or local advertisers in each market. Rush may or may not have the right to veto certain advertisers, or types of advertising. I don't pretend to know the details. This is the vast majority of the advertising that appears in any given tghree hour period.

Rush retains a few minutes per hour that HE can sell to advertisers. He usually endorses these products himself, and does the commericals. I assume that sponsors pay a premium rate for this, and that over the years the value of these campaigns has shown itself.

So we are talkign about two different types of advertisers, and we need to distinguish between the two. I suspect that he will lsoe a few from both sectors, but after a few months, when it all dies down..they'll be lining up to sign up. It may talke longer for any new personal Rush advertisers to come on board..that just wouldn't be a good business decision now..why antagonize a % of your market..it would be just bad publicity..

Ha! . . and that ain’t all. Rush has scores of companies just waiting in line to sponsor his show.

We’re cancelling Carbonite, and Shari’s Berries just gonna have to eat her own berries - we’ve ordered, but no more. Will just have to find another company that does chocolate covered strawberries. Select Comfort? We have an old one that needs to be replaced - got it back before they had the numbers on them; but we’ll be looking for another glorified air mattress to replace it.

“Occupy” people have all the time in the world to barrage these companies with e-mails; but they aren’t exactly likely to be frequent customers - unless Carbonite, Shari’s Berries, and Sleep Comfort are looking to give their product away free gratis.

Oh, and guess I’ll order some of Rush’s Two If By Tea. (Like Bill Clinton, Obama decided he wanted to bite Rush; but got a burned mouth instead of what he was looking for. Ha! Reprehensible, indeed! - And the beauty of it is that it is highly likely that Rush orchestrated this whole thing just to dramatize the “Bill Maher” phenomenon of name calling conservative women and never being held accountable.

Ummm....

1. The trend is towards online broadcasting anyway. Because the talk demographic is older who show higher resistance to podCasting, et al, for now the real money is on the airwaves. The future might not be Alex Jones, per se, but his netCentric format is certainly the future. So Rush scaling back on AM might not be super bad.

2. Rush has been poor before —he has seen it all. He also has lots of savings and Two if By Tea. He will definately survive, and this actually might prove good, since it might shove him over to the virtual side more now. This isn’t good, but...it’s not a disaster for him, although for those Republican idiots it probably will be.

3. His fan base is fanatically devoted. They will follow him anywhere. I think Rush should get into non-network video production more. Studios are cheaper, and cameras that were once $50,000 are now $2,500 —just look at Act of Valor, a #1 film shot with cameras carried by upper-income everyday tourists. What has happened to computers has also been occuring to cameras and video-editing. Alex Jones shoots using interns and a studio in a business park —it looks great and is distributed via YouTue. A budget for a really great studio could easily be less than $30k. He could be making something like his old show, but on a shorter format —2.5 minute vids, maybe every other day, viewable by commuters on their iPhone and droids. FreddieW, a 25 y.o. YouTuber who never went to film school, gets 7 million hits weekly on his ~ 2 minute fx videos.

4. Rush needs to write another book. It will be an instant best-seller and could come in time for the impending election. All his fans will buy it. The libs will crap their pants.

And RUSH has to go THERE.Thats like calling a bombing raid on your own position when the enemy is totally exposed in an open field, and desperate to go on last ditch suicide runs.While Rush drops a daisy cutter on to our positions.
We are the ones running in chaos and ducking for cover and licking wounds

Probably Libertarians. They are the only ones out there with any idea of how to balance the budget and pay down the debt. It is for sure the Republican can or will not. Since the 2010 elections how much has the debt grown? 2 Trillion? It could not have grown a cent WITHOUT the Republicans signing on. Both parties have surrendered in the “War on Terror”. Iraq is coming apart. Afghanistan is really a sick joke. And Iran is inching closer to becoming a nuclear power every day. Every gain since 2002 has been surrendered with the Republicans meekly going along to get along. The border is as porous as ever regardless of what both parties say. Human smuggling is down due to the economy, but drug smuggling is up big time. However I hear bootlegging has dropped off quite a bit since the repeal of prohibition. This country is run by one party the Government party. The only way to change it is to quit supporting them. No More!
How can the Libertarian party do any worse?

I’d say you’re the fool because you don’t listen. Rush apologised for “his choice of words” the other day, then today he said he was sorry for stooping to the left’s level. both in my book say he dogged them out... Fluke, and the left in general.

The guy handled it with class, and since you dont agree, now you have no one... Go sit in the corner.

I will keep and profess my opinion on FR until Jim tells me otherwise.

Why is it that we cannot disagree on this unfortunately successful plot by the left... without degrading it into personal attacks? We do not have to agree on this to remain Conservatives locked in a battle with powers that want to destroy us and our way of life. FR is about open discussions of Conservatism. We see the situation differently... big deal... I have explained my reasoning and I remain convinced of my opinion.

If Rush is sued by this person and the media continues to beat the anti Rush drum... then I will be proved correct. I know that you probably do not believe this but I hope that I am wrong and that you are correct. For that to happen... the left would have to surprise me and do something that is unnatural for them and not do what they are compelled to do... attack the right and never stop.

Rush blew it bigtime by apologizing to Fluke

Actually he didn't. During today's opening monologue, which likely drew the largest audience of his career, he reiterated his apology then went on to give a complete and in depth explanation into what the dems were attempting to do last week. For those listening who didn't know the facts, they got an ear full.........Rush was brilliant!

Those who criticize Rush are essentially supporting a slut who wants other people to pay $3,000 a year so she can hop from bed to bed and enjoy worry-free sexcapades. I have lost respect for Gingrich over this. (The other two scumbags mentioned, I don’t care about.)

I'd like to see them try. Discovery will not be a pretty thing for Ms. Fluke.

Sympathy for Fluke will wane pretty soon. Her 15 minutes of fame are just about up. Dims trying to cash in will soon find that she's jumped the shark.

She is, after all, insufferably smug and thinks she's "entitled" -- big turn-offs to most Americans.

Rush pissed me off today. I was angry when I posted that. He was not a fool but he acted foolishly. I will admit that was harsh but no one on our side has come close to handling this correctly from the start. I am not trying to do anything but openly discuss your post to me and the subject at hand. If this event does not have you livid at how stupidly the republican candidates have handled this and how the media and the left... through manipulation... just scored a slam dunk with this... then you should spend some time reevaluating.

You are right... it does no good to talk about the left’s macro engineering of this election and how inept our side is in defending US and our way of life. How many teaching moments could this attack have given to us... if only. Reagan would have used this subject to beat the socialists over the head with.

I have been a loyal Rush listener since he went National. I have supported him through every dark time he has had. I have defended him on these pages for years. I have NEVER posted anything about Rush in a negative light... until today. I will share this with you... I am just going to stop listening to Rush and stop posting on these threads. No one here wants to admit that we just got our arses handed to us. All will be sweetness and light tomorrow. Rush does not need me and I choose to switch him off. I will miss him.

You’re dreaming. Rush alienated all those who supported him when he was “taking it to” the left!

You don’t “explain” why you apologized unless you’re getting heat for apologizing.

I stuck with Rush through the drug thing. I’ve been a listener since he guest hosted for Pat Sajack. I had a 24/7 subscription on day one. I got into a half hour debate with the PD of my local TV station when they dropped him.

As of Saturday, I cancelled my subscription, erased his app from my iPhone, and deleted him from iTunes. When I get around to it, I’ll erase his web page from my favorites, too.

As far as I’m concerned, he’s little different from David Brock.
