Poll: Would you rather listen to dead air, or Rush Limbaugh?
(Excerpt) Read more at ed.msnbc.msn.com ...
What is the fear of God?
Challenge being told to shut up. The new norm is your voice doesn’t count.
Ed is dead air.
He’s currently at negative 50 advertisers. So...yeah, about that...
I’d rather listen to Natalie Maines than to give Ed Schultz a hit.
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.
Talk about a tough choice!
Now it is only 73% that like Mr. Deadair
I have listened to Rush all week and not once did I hear dead air during commercials
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.
I would rather listen to the sounds of explosive diareha than listen to Ed Shultz.
That’s rather graphic I should think.
That question just begs the answer of “well they do watch Ed after all”....
I’m sure you’re talking about the south bound end.
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.
