Skip to comments.Media Matters, NOW unite to force Limbaugh off the air
Posted on 05/04/2012 9:33:34 PM PDT by bigbob
Start listening to Rush Limbaugh. That was the message representatives from Media Matters for America and the National Organization for Women delivered to NOW chapter leaders in a secret, narrowly focused strategy session Wednesday night.
In audio of the NOW/MMFA strategy webinar obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, the liberal organizations plotted the best ways to get the radio giant and veritable burr in their collective saddles off the air.
Go after the local advertisers
The key, according to Media Matters online outreach director Jay Carmona, is to target Limbaugh at the local level specifically advertisers in local radio markets but with an eye on his national sponsors.
I will say, just going by the numbers, getting local stations to drop Limbaugh is actually a hard, more long-term campaign than just looking at getting local sponsors to drop, she explained, adding that they do not need to get the conservative talker off every local station to make an impact.
The catch, however, is that women who are active with NOW and the men who support them whom Limbaugh often needles as the NAGs (National Association of Gals) and the new castrati are actually going to have to listen to his radio show in order to identify and target those local advertisers.
The first thing you want to do is, I say, start listening to Rush Limbaugh, Carmona advised.

The operative word being “little”.
I don’t think that it’ll work either. They may eventually succeed in driving him to another venue but the only way they’ll get rid of him entirely is if “he” decides to call it quits.
Rush and the other conservatives on the air will be in grave danger if 0bama wins/steals another term.
Hell, we’re already all in grave danger.
I have been writing to local companies who send me letters soliciting business that because they have dropped Limbaugh advertising, I have dropped them as a source of goods and services. Sears, Sleep Comfort, Quicken Loans, etc.
Get your friends to do the same and threaten a local boycott of these businesses.
The worm turns!
You can also ask why this business (i.e. Sears, Quicken Loans, etc), are taking advise from a neo-marxist smear group like Media Matters, which is funded by a WW2 Nazi-supporting KAPO (Jewish turncoat) from Hungary?
That should put them on notice.
Even if they contact local advertisers, those businesses are going to have to ask which they value more - the results they’ve had from advertizing on Rush, or the potential business of the Nags and New Castrati. If Liberals represent less than 20% of the population, I think it’ll be a pretty easy decision.
The only thing that might happen...is that someone starts to dig into who funds Media Matters and NOW. Once you identify their message with the financial side of the house and label them with the supporter’s name (not NOW, not Media Matters), then this crystal palace starts to fall.
A bunch of slut organizations looking to silence free speech.
will never happen...
What a bunch of pussies.
Grab your panties and stretch'em over your head David Brock ...
that 1st Amendment thing works both ways.
Hmm. Of course some percentage of these people will learn that Rush is Right!
I happened to tune in today for a while, and I heard Rush mention at the outset the “mental health breaks” being advised by NOW et al., indicating that he would be accommodating. Never did hear any followup, though. Was there any? I’m supposing an official Rush Mental Health Break would be an occasion for considerable amusement.
These fools are still beating up Rush over his calling Sandra Fluke a slut.
They need to get over themselves.
If they succeed Rush goes to satellite, we go with, local stations suffer, but Rush lives on.
That’s what would happen but chances are zero to .05%. I think nags go away before Rush does
Feeling vs thinking
About the only things I can find that the NAGS and Meateaters Matter have in common are a hatred of America, homosexuality and Marxism/Communism.
“but they’re getting a little smarter”
There was only one way to go
If Obama wins another term, there won’t be much need for Rush. That will be a good sign that conservatives have already lost the political battle.
They can't out-debate him so getting rid of him is their only option.
Non compos mentis. Get rid of Rush by increasing his listenership. Great plan.
The old bags and hags are at work again.
The Left is showing its true colors. From the oppression of free speech with bullying tactics to the limiting of free speech through the censorship tactics of political correctness, they are degenerate thugs. The only language they know is the language of propaganda and talking points given by enemies of freedom and those plotting for the destruction of the United States of America.
Here is an example of them disrupting the address by Abby Johnson, former Director of a Texas Planned Parenthood, talking about the horror of abortion:
Maybe they’ll discover he isn’t nearly as outrageous as Hag Central has painted him to be.
I hope Rush and the others have good security.
I heard SEARS is up for more imminent closings. We are at war on all public conservative speech and when even the Church is attacked openly, then danger is at our very door.
Rush has around 576 stations and about 20 million listeners of which I am one! I don’t think they can force him off unless they buy all the stations that carry him!!
Doesn’t NOW have something better and more noble to do? Like stop the horrendous repression of women in the middle east??
My thoughts, exactly. . .

Rush should openly welcome them as listeners and invite them to actually learn something. He`s always 10 steps ahead of the enemy. For whatever the bad guys attempt to dish out, he`s always ready to dish it back with interest.
The NAGs care only about three issues:
1. The "right" to kill the unborn
2. Lesbian "rights"
3. Promotion and election of democrats
Everything else is just noise to them.
But what about diversity and tolerance? I thought different cultures and ideas were good things according to the libs. Oh, they get to pick which ones are good!
Why doesn't Soros' organizations & rich Hollywood elitist start up their own liberal talk radio to promote and argue the merits of the Constitution & Capitalism?
They could get some big name lefty talkers and I'm sure they would be as big as Limbaugh one day.
They could come up with a catchy name, like, say, Air America.
Oh!! Wait! ...Nevermind
Nothing stings like the truth!
By the way, how’s Carbonite doing?
As of today I will boycott NOW. Go Rush.
Media Matters and NOW should be forced out of business. One is run by a pschopathic sociopathic humanity-hating homosexual — and the other is run by David Brock. comedy club routine/
It’s time for those who care about free speech to get after groups like NOW and Media Matters. Bunch of petty dictators.
Rush just said the other day that the advertisers that left due to the Sandra Fluke flap are asking to come back!
The left has been applying this strategy for awhile. Glenn Beck described a situation where a local business (mechanic) was inundated with phone calls from these losers and they basically overloaded their phone lines and blocked business that way. This mechanic had no idea what was going on. He was advertising with the local station that also carried Beck.
This is only a lit bit different than standing in front of the door to the business and blocking people from entering.
We'll have to shut that Interwebs thingie down, though, and make it a one-way "pipe."
Yes. They have proven, time and time again, they’re agenda driven frauds.
