  • Clinton’s Pardons for Pedophiles: No crime too horrific that a large donation won’t solve.

    The Office of the Inspector General of the State Department found in its latest investigation that Clinton aides had “created an appearance of undue influence and favoritism” in a number of cases including that of Ambassador Howard Gutman. The investigation is largely a whitewash. There is no mention of the fact that one whistleblower related to the case, Richard Higbie, had his emails deleted by a hacker. Or that the main whistleblower, Aurelia Fedenisn, was harassed at home and had her law firm burgled.It goes almost without saying that Richard Nixon went down for much less than that.There is also...

    Police report says Epstein had okayed deal in underage sex probe JULY 27--Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, now ensnared in a sleazy Palm Beach teenage sex/massage scandal, agreed earlier this year to plead guilty to an aggravated assault charge, serve five years probation, undergo "psychiatric/sexual evaluation," and have no unsupervised visits with minors, according to a police report. The details of the Epstein plea agreement--which was never finalized--are contained in an 87-page Palm Beach Police Department incident report, an excerpt of which you'll find below. According to an account by Detective Joseph Recarey, prosecutor Lana Belohlavek related to him the terms of...

    After talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh mocked left-wing/birth control activist Sandra Fluke as a "slut" (something he later apologized for) the organized left thought they could finally silence The Most Listened To Talk Show Host in America by picking off his advertisers. The boycott, organized mostly by the left-wing Media Matters, can now officially be called a failure with the news that advertisers have not only returned, but that the show is pacing ahead of last year: "Rush Limbaugh’s distributor on Thursday said there is no denying the conservative radio host’s controversial comments about Sandra Fluke hurt advertising last year...
  • Is Rush Limbaugh still relevant? (Barf Alert)

    New York (CNN) -- Is Rush Limbaugh becoming a relic, a human version of "Mad Men," except without the style or cool clothes? Has Limbaugh become as dated as Jazzercise or "Macarena?" All you need to do is look at the bottom line to see that Limbaugh is in trouble. Limbaugh once raked in the big bucks for his radio syndicator, Cumulus. But last week, Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey made it clear those days are over. Dickey reported that Cumulus had lost millions of dollars in ad sales because many advertisers no longer want to be associated with Limbaugh. According...

    Good morning, AdLand. Here’s what you need to know today: A high ranking source at Cumulus radio told the Radio Ink that 48 out of 50 advertisers gave orders to exclude “Rush and Hannity” from their packages. Of course, the radio company that distributes Limbaugh’s show released a statement that the claim is “completely inaccurate.”There was talk earlier this week that Limbaugh’s relationship with Cumulus was in danger given the major advertising boycott he incited after calling Sandra Fluke a slut on the air. The boycott allegedly cost ABC Radio $5.5 million. …

    On August 1 Carbonite released its 2d Quarter 2012 results, the first full quarter after dropping Limbaugh in March. The results shocked Wall Street, as Carbonite did not meet its growth targets, causing multiple analysts to drop the target price. The stock dropped 15% in a day.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3 August 2012 | Sean Higgins
    During the height of the Rush Limbaugh/Sandra Fluke controversy in March, software company Carbonite announced it would no longer sponsor the conservative radio host. As CEO David Friend said at the time: No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our...
  • Huckabee: Limbaugh 'Very Critical of Me, Very Wrong'

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has hit back at Rush Limbaugh, saying the talk show host has been “very wrong,” in his criticism of him. In an interview for the New York Times Magazine, the 2008 presidential candidate was asked if he was “going after” Limbaugh by launching a competing syndicated talk show. Huckabee responded, “He’s been very critical of me and very wrong. It’s one thing to have an opinion, but the opinion needs to be based on fact.

    Huckabee Radio Talk Show Off To Extremely Slow Start *** EQ EXCLUSIVE *** With mainstream media expectations so high, Mike Huckabee's new radio talk show was probably bound to disappoint. But newly-available hard data reveals a gaping donut hole where the audience should be. It's an ominous sign for Cumulus Media, Huck syndicator and new owner of ABC Radio's largest AM legacy news-talk radio stations. Widely touted as the "civil" answer to Rush Limbaugh's regime-threatening political effectiveness, the former Arkansas governor became an establishment darling earlier this year when the talk titan got caught up in the Sandra Fluke controversy....

    Call it J.C Penney’s private flash crash. The stock today plunged 19.7% to close at $26.57. That’s even worse than Black Monday 1987. On that day, the stock lost a hair less, 19.2%. It’s unclear if this is the stock’s worst day ever. (Perhaps it suffered an even worse day during the 1930s.) However, it is clear that this is the worst single-day performance in the past 40 years. That’s as far back as our FactSet data goes.*
  • Cumulus Lost Millions on Rush Limbaugh Boycott

    "It's the first time anyone actually gave a dollar amount regarding the Rush Limbaugh Sandra Fluke incident. Monday evening Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey said the advertiser boycott cost his company "a couple million" dollars in ad revenue in the first quarter and "a couple million" in the second quarter. He said things look like they will be back to normal in June. Cumulus carries Rush Limbaugh 38 markets and blames 1% of the 3.5% drop in revenue for the quarter on the Rush boycott. Dickey said Cumulus was "hit pretty hard by this."

    RINO Radio? Republican In Name Only Radio? Taking on… Rush Limbaugh???????? And demeaning the audience of one's would-be customers… this is a business proposition? Seriously? There's two parts of this discussion: talk radio and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. Let's start with talk radio and the basics. All of which are now out there in the Land of Google thanks to the sponsors of this project seeking -- and getting -- their fair share of tons of PR. So that being the case… let's work our way through their pitch and what they're saying. Saying on the record, incredibly enough....

    The American Spectator ^ | March 27, 2012 | Jeffrey Lord
    It was a set up. From start to finish. A quite specific, quite detailed plot to get Rush Limbaugh, ruin his career, and drive him off the air. Next targets? Sean Hannity and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Lots to cover here. Let's start with Mr. Angelo Carusone. Who is Angelo Carusone? Today he is now the "Director of Online Strategy for Media Matters for America." But a few years back? He was just your basic left-wing law student with a standard left-wing passion. That passion? Totalitarian-style censorship.

    On Monday afternoon, America Live host Megyn Kelly spoke with Mark Stevens, the founder of the global marketing firm MSCO and an advertiser for Rush Limbaugh‘s radio program who says his company has been targeted by people who want to put him out of business for his connection to the outspoken conservative host. Earlier, Limbaugh had addressed the matter on his show, where he said that Stevens believes there is a coordinated attack on his business spearheaded by a group he wouldn’t name, but that Limbaugh was happy to — Media Matters.

    Cedar Rapids Gazette ^ | 23 March 2012 | AP
    Rush Limbaugh’s opponents are starting a radio campaign against him Thursday, seizing upon the radio star’s attack of a Georgetown law student as a “slut” to make a long-term effort aimed at weakening his business. The liberal Media Matters for America is using a past campaign against Glenn Beck as a template. In Limbaugh, however, they’re going after bigger game. He’s already fighting back and the group’s stance has provoked concerns that an effort to silence someone for objectionable talk is in itself objectionable. Media Matters is spending at least $100,000 for two advertisements that will run in eight cities....

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    As advertisers keep joining in on the Rush Limbaugh boycott, one company only lasted a week before it went back to the conservative talk show host with its tail between its legs. But Limbaugh is not ready to forgive and forget. The Los Angeles Times reports that Sleep Train, which had advertised with Limbaugh for 25 years, asked to relaunch a "voiced endorsement" on Limbaugh's show on Thursday ... and they were turned down. The funny thing is, Sleep Train was the first advertiser to pull its ads from Limbaugh's show. After receiving a slew of angry messages for advertising...

    Here is video of Rush Limbaugh today saying the Obama Administration has "gone far beyond what Richard Nixon even comtemplated" in his dealings with the media. Rush said Obama is attempting to "silence" individual reporters and an entire network. Obama is doing so from a position of being the darling of the mainstream media. In Nixon's case, Rush said "Nixon was trying to get a fair shake." The media always hated Nixon and were very biased against him. Rush made the comments after mocking Andrea Mitchell for being a supposed "real news" person. He plays audio of her slamming Sen....

    Here is video of Rush Limbaugh today taking a call from a liberal from Indiana named "Dwight." Rush introduced him by saying he was calling from Indianapolis, the home of the Colts owner, Jim "Hearsay" (Irsay)! Irsay publicly opposed Limbaugh's bid to be part of a group seeking to buy the St. Louis Rams. Dwight is dissatisfied with Obama, because he believes Obama's Health Care Plan will be a $1.2 Trillion transfer to the Insurance Companies. Limbaugh begins this segment by reacting to CNN's hitjob story on him in which they theorize that people flock to Rush because he is...

    Sorry to disillusion those of you who are still in denial about President Barack Obama's true socialistic and dictatorial nature, but this guy's militancy against his perceived enemies puts Richard Nixon's White House to shame. His war on Fox News is just his latest salvo. Obama's perceived enemies are all those who have the temerity not to roll over for his extreme agenda. They all must be demonized, marginalized and silenced by a president who has turned the Oval Office into a glorified street organizing headquarters to attack his opponents. Indeed, this self-described uniter is the most divisive president in...
