    Yep. Called it above, BTW.

    Told you what he was gonna do with that Twitter account. Nothing special, totally predictable, and a big ass dodge to continue avoiding owning what he did.

    Notice how that all prevents real, material discussion of the matter. Also notice how the comparisons properly done don't favor the mound of sound.

    What kind of entertainer is he again?

    -----------------------------------Rush Boycott Proves Radio Still Matters-----------------------------------

    The RUSH LIMBAUGH brouhaha has been good for at least one thing, HARKER RESEARCH's RICHARD HARKER and GLENDA SHRADER BOS wrote in their Radio Insights blog. It's that radio can still make waves -- and that's not necessarily such a bad thing.

    "A great deal has been made about 'no LIMBAUGH' dictates coming from major agencies and businesses," the write. "While the latest dictates have fueled the debate, the truth is that every controversial host attracts similar dictates. HOWARD STERN had more than his share. Virtually every controversial 'shock jock' morning man has had them.

    "And what about upset listeners, critical tweets, and organized FACEBOOK efforts to get controversial personalities fired? With all this aggravation, why do stations hire shock jocks and then defend them?
    "Because shock sells, and it sells at a premium."

  5. "Five hundred years before Jesus was born, Buddha cautioned his followers:
    "Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words.
    Be careful of your words, for your words become your actions.
    Be careful of your actions, for your actions become your habits.
    Be careful of your habits, for your habits become your character.
    Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny."

    Okie dokie.

    See folks, there is the difference right there. We've got at least one clown right here, who actually buys what Limbaugh is selling. Maher is a comic, and everybody knows it. Limbaugh? Clearly, there are suckers born every minute and he speaks right to them.

    I think that shoots down the "nobody takes him seriously" argument! Funny as hell.

    Re: Any press is good press.

    I think this is true more than not. It's more true for the individual station owners than it is Limbaugh right now though.

    As Huckabee ramps up, that "any press" might not favor Limbaugh as much as it does the rest of talk radio.

  24. This from All Access:

    ----------------------------Rush Limbaugh Show Hits Back At Media Matters, Brock----------------------------

    The RUSH LIMBAUGH show, through spokesperson BRIAN GLICKLICH, has responded to the pressure put on the show and its advertisers and affiliates by MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA and its head DAVID BROCK with an op-ed column in POLITICO alleging that the outrage over LIMBAUGH's remarks about SANDRA FLUKE was pre-arranged and an attempt at censorship.

    Noting that BROCK "started organizing a protest (over the incident) almost three years ago ... planned ahead and activated at the first moment BROCK could manipulate a media frenzy," GLICKLICH wrote that MEDIA MATTERS "stands for censorship... Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by their allies. It’s different, they claim. It’s always different when they say it is, for an array of implausible reasons. The truth is that they are hypocrites."

    The truth is that they are hypocrites
    GLICKLICH also takes MEDIA MATTERS to task for harming small businesses -- advertisers -- by using "coordinated attacks from operatives who never were or will be (their) customers" demanding that the advertisers "renounce (MEDIA MATTERS') enemies or become one of them ... If businesses give in to these demands, they lose access to the customers who helped build their company. Let’s be clear -- most advertisers aren’t making a political statement when they decide where to spend their money. Most chose varied programs to reach audiences with different points of view ... But MEDIA MATTERS says you can’t talk to that audience anymore. And when these businesses shrink, because they’ve lost access to half their customers; when they lay off employees or even shut down, whom will MEDIA MATTERS blame? Probably not themselves."

    Comparing BROCK to other "censoring thug(s)" attempting to silence opposing speech, GLICKLICH added, "We don’t need self-appointed monitors. Black-list censors are some of the most reviled characters in U.S. history. One day MEDIA MATTERS will join that list as an advocacy that lost sight of its mission, which was to promulgate a point of view, in order to adopt a darker one, which was to deny that right of expression to others."

    Fairandbalanced... way back when I was younger, I used to listen to Rush... I guess my taste has moved away from audio PORN... I guess that I have moved beyond filling my ears with titillation and I am looking for more substance when I spend time listening to the radio...

    Posted on March 21, 2012 - 08:03 PM #
  27. I'm looking for more substance too, which is why I've been gravitating to Catholic radio of late, and there are some good stations to be heard online. Let me know if you'd like some recommendations. But Rush is entertaining. I don't see any "porn" aspect to what he does, but I admit that he used to be funnier in the old days.

    Rush is good therapy sometimes. When it seems that liberalism is winning it all and trampling all over our freedom with the help of a complicit media, it's nice to be reminded I'm not alone.

    And I believe these efforts to shut him down are not going to work, and will probably backfire.

    Terrorism? Well, it seems to me that raising the cost of speech plan works. It's damn expensive to just tee up on somebody on the public airwaves, isn't it Rush?

    Reminder why the Spocko method posted here earlier works so well. A person takes actual audio, or a confirmed transcript of what Limbaugh actually says, simply asking if this is what their brand is about.

    That's not terrorism, unless Limbaugh wants to characterize himself as a terrorist. Seems to me, Fluke might think so.

  37. More from Bristol:

    "Bill Maher is much more than a comedian. He’s a big-time political player who hides behind the “comedian” label whenever he gets criticized. His guest list represents a huge chunk of the Washington establishment and sometimes even includes prominent Republicans. And as I said in my original post, he’s put himself straight in the middle of presidential politics by giving $1,000,000 to President Obama’s SuperPAC. Bill Maher isn’t just some guy behind a microphone in a seedy comedy club in the middle of nowhere. He’s a comedian and political commentator like Rush is an entertainer and political commentator. He’s a little bit less popular, but his professional failure compared to Rush doesn’t make him any less accountable for his vile speech.

    And as for censorship, Rush always has the right to stand on a streetcorner and bleat his mysogyny at anyone and everyone within shouting distance. He does not have any constitutional right to do so on scarce free-market driven airwaves.

    -----------------------------Media Matters Launches Anti-Limbaugh Ad Campaign-----------------------------

    The day after RUSH LIMBAUGH, through a spokesman, ripped into MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA and its founder DAVID BROCK for orchestrating the campaign against him for his comments on activist/student SANDRA FLUKE, MEDIA MATTERS announced that it is spending $100,000 on two ads attacking LIMBAUGH, to be aired in eight markets. The ads, airing in BOSTON, CHICAGO, DETROIT, MILWAUKEE, ST. LOUIS, SEATTLE, CEDAR RAPIDS, and MACON, urge listeners to call LIMBAUGH affiliates and say "we don't talk to women like that." "What we’re really looking for is a way to demonstrate the persistence of the effort and the fact that it is on a wide scale," MEDIA MATTERS' ANGELO CARUSONE told AP's DAVID BAUDER.

    In response, PREMIERE NETWORKS' RACHEL NELSON told AP, "This is not about women. It's not about ethics and it's not about the nature of our public discourse. It's a direct attack on America's guaranteed First Amendment right to free speech. It's essentially a call for censorship masquerading as high-minded indignation."

    The answer to offensive free speech is more free speech!

    Remember, Limbaugh opened the door, and having walked through with both feet, refused to own the issue, leaving it for others.

    What drives this campaign is a simple question, "He gets to do that?" posed to women all over the place, and their supporters of course.

    The answer appears to be "Yes", but it's expensive to do. LOL!!!

    Leaving us with how many dollars = "I'm sorry." Nobody really knows! What is clear, is Limbaugh himself raises that bar with each denial and framing attempt he makes. Could go on a long time = a lotta dollars.

    Huckabee has got to be feeling good about this one right now. Seriously! Who wouldn't, given his current path. I sure would.

    I am no Huckster fan. Where Limbaugh is a serious enabler, Huckabee is a dominionist. Both very ugly to society, and both very competitive. Huckster can be nice as all get out. Dominionism works best with a sweeter delivery. Enabling means just putting the ugly out there, raising it to mainstream status.

    Taking my personal politics out of it, I am genuinely curious as to how they compete. And they will too.

    Agreed with edselehr completely. That speech is under license, and it's a decency problem, not a first amendment problem. Two different things.

    Put Limbaugh on subscription, and he can go to town all he wants, accountable only to his subscribers, and those who provide the venue.

    In the end, I'm hoping we either:

    Give up the decency bit, meaning we can also drop the silly profanity rules, or seriously relax them to only apply at key times

    , or

    Enforce it, and bring Limbaugh up to speed on how these things should go, with him doing exactly what others did; namely, own the issue with a material, sincere apology and a modification in broadcast behavior

    , or

    do nothing, and Limbaugh digs his own grave, others more than willing to compete for those public airwaves, rendering it a relevancy problem, more than a decency one.

    We shall see!
