The OWS spammers don't actually purchase anything, they just complain.
This is what we call here in Tennessee-bovine scatology. There has to be more to this story. I dunno. Rush has so many new advertisers/sponsers now. Yawn. Whatever. Sounds like some lib trying to make himself feel better.
Cumulus? They are the ones carrying Huckabee’s station on many channel’s so they can save money and not have to pay Premiere for Rush.
This is a phoney hit on Rush by Cumulus. They are still trying to pimp that loser Huckabee as a Rush alternative, on their other stations, in his time slot. The only reason that they even have Rush on at all is that he is so profitable they can’t afford to lose him in some markets.
BTW, why didn’t anyone ask this guy about where the other 2.5% loss went in their 3.5% drop in revenue at Cumulus?
I don’t understand.
Did they lose money because the customer rebelled on Rush?
Or did they lose money because of less advertising?
What? Rush’s show didn’t miss a minute of ad time. Local markets may have lost paid slots because they didn’t have time to sell new ads. But something filled the spot. It didn’t sit idle.
Blow your smoke somewhere else.
They'd all trade places with Cumulus or Rush in an instant.
Rush just might take a day off in the near future and visit their grave sites, smoke a cigar and......
So lets see if I have this right. Couple million first quarter, couple million from second quarter? Lets round that to 5 million.
That represents the 3.5% drop .... and they blame 1% of that drop due to rush. So 1% of 5 million equals a GRAND TOTAL of [gasp] $50,000.
Did I do my math right? Cause $50K seems to me to be a paultry outcome for a boycott.
This is BS. For every advertiser Rush “lost” there were 3 begging to get on. Big picture...Rush scores.
Total BS article. No broadcaster measures clients, advertisers or %. They measure “avails”. Avails are available commercial slots (or inventory) on any radio or TV station. Rush never has any avails. If a advertiser left, another one stepped in to fill the avails. Since he has a waiting list there’s always someone waiting to advertise.
My mental arithmetic has fallen off badly since 8th grade (when we had to do it!) . . . how much is 1% of 3.5%?
(Yes, I know that's not what they mean . . . but my English skills haven't fallen off!)
Total mistatements, especially in the headline. They lost $1 million on what- 250 million? Is that, like, 1% on a boycott? In the meantime, Rush’s listening audience increased, and his company posted record profits.
This is where the truth lies: “CUMULUS OWNS JUST 38 of the 600 stations that air the Rush Limbaugh Show, which is nationally syndicated by Cumulus’s competitor, Clear Channel Media. For its part, CLEAR CHANNEL (Rush’s company) SAW TOTAL REVENUES INCREASE 6 percent the first quarter of 2011 to $671.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, according to MediaPost.
Talk about misleading articles! Meanwhile, lib media outfits are bleeding listeners and money.
Check out this article on the same subject, and it’s far more informative:
Is this true?
Rush went into great detail on this issue: The reports of large numbers of advertisers “jumping ship” are mostly a result of LOCAL businesses bailing. E.g. if your local A.M. station carries Rush and one or two people call Kenny’s Klunkers Used Cars and complain, Kenny will ask the station not to run his adverts from noon to 15:00.
Then you have your companies that own a group of stations and at the top (!) EIB itself. ISTR Rush saying he lost a few big (carbonite) advertisers but there were a LOT more waiting in the wings.
Whatever else we know or think we know, we can rest assured the scumbags on the Left will do ANYthing they can to silence opposing speech.
