According to people who actually listen to Mr. Ed 90% would rather listen to dead air which I guess means listening to Mr. Ed.

The ONLY thing I know for sure in this world is that Mr. Ed can talk. Oh, and he is also a horse.

I couldn’t get the site to open so it was dead air
as far as I could tell.
I’d rather listen to Rush.

I would rather jump into a swimming pool full of razor blades than watch the Sgt. Schultz show.

I’d listen to Rush, if he would get the fear of God in him.

Right 'cha are! The few people that watch this fat fool or who pay any attention to his crap will probably boost the poll. I wouldn't go to this site because of this jackass's hatred for America.

Doesn’t Ed broadcast on dead air?

On a remodel I facillitated a few years ago, the home owner would get into his recliner to watch and then fall asleep. Somehow thru subliminal messages he gives thousands to the libtards.

“I’d listen to Rush, if he would get the fear of

And, I’d watch Joel Osteen if he would talk
politics.

I don’t know but I just found an interesting story on Daily Smell (Mail)

A story about Rush and his losing ‘40’ sponsors. I went to comment and the comments were closed. How convenient. I was going to ask if their writers had verified that statement but oddly enough, I couldn’t so they must have gotten some nasty replies and stopped the comments.

Would you rather listen to Debbie Wasserman Schultz or stick an ice pick through your eardrums?

Welcome to FR.

I don’t believe that. There are bogus numbers being put out there by the left and some are not even his advertisers to begin with.

I’ll get more info from Rushbo.

Coming down .... just wondering if Mr. Ed has access to that polling and would manipulate it in the dead air percentage. But then too, only reason people have gone to that poll is because of FR. His 20,000 fans support him though.

RUSH: I want to ask if you will indulge me for just a brief few minutes for some inside baseball stuff before we move on to our review of the issues of the day, politics and so forth, Super Tuesday, the results, and where we are. The reason for this is, once again, so much misinformation about this program and advertisers is in the mainstream media. People are reporting things that, A, are not true, and B, I don’t even think the people reporting it have the slightest idea what they’re talking about, nor do they have the ability to understand it.

But I know that many of you are spending a lot of time — God bless you — on the Web doing what you can to express your support for the program. And judging from the reaction of my own brother, who sends me a note last night, “You really lost 28 sponsors?” No, we have not lost 28 sponsors. “Well, how can they say it?” Because they lie and because they don’t understand how it works, and that’s what I want to try and explain. In fact, folks, we have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks. Now, obviously, I’m not gonna tell you who they are today, but we’ve got three brand-new, full-fledged sponsors starting in the next two weeks.

Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return. We are being very careful about that. Not gonna give you any names here. One of them is practically begging to come back. Everything is fine on the business side. Everything’s cool. There is not a thing to worry about. What you’re seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect. And let me try to explain how this works. Let’s take the claim that we’ve lost 28 sponsors. Sponsors on this program are both local and national. We deal with the national sponsors on this program. We have 600-plus stations. They sell their own commercials. We don’t have anything to do with those sponsors. We don’t get paid by those sponsors. We have no idea who those sponsors are.

there is more , much more explaining how it works, so don’t believe everything you read coming from the leftbots. They’re paid to spin.

Poll to advertisers: how much would you pay for a 30-second spot on Ed Schultz, or on Rush Limbaugh?

Rush has denied the return of Sleep Train and...another note on the advertisers via MichelleMalkin.com

TWITCHY.COM is proud to join companies across the country that advertise with talk show giant Rush Limbaugh and his Excellence In Broadcasting network. Today, we will begin running ads on the RushLimbaugh.com website.”

Doesn’t this make you happy?

We still have Freedom to advertise with whom we want.
