Is Rush Limbaugh still relevant?
CNN, by Dean Obeidallah

Original Article

Posted By:SpinMaster, 5/14/2013 1:25:13 PM

New York -- 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.

Comments:
CNN wishes it were so relevant.

The very idea of Rush being irrelevant is a non sequitur. The author uses Media Matters talking points and gins up the phony arguments about advertisers not wanting to use Rush. Rush has drawn the attention of even the likes of the President on almost a daily basis. Rush himself has stated that advertisers were duped into this and many who left had wished they stayed with Rush.

There is no one more relevant than Rush.

Jeffrey Lord does an excellent job of dissecting Cumulus in a column that is posted today by another L-Dotter.

Do read the article. It is excellent and actually reports some facts.

There is a genuine effort to force Limbaugh off the air or hurt is air time. The recent buyers of his national network clearly have an agenda that does not involve the promoting of AM radio. The idiot marx brothers seemed bent on destroying it. Ask Michale Savage and the many others who have sued or are seuing right now. Rush will survive, but conspiracy is in the air.

Can´t say it enough -
´Projection is a form of defense in which unwanted feelings are displaced onto another person, where they then appear as a threat from the external world. A common form of projection occurs when an individual, threatened by his own angry feelings, accuses another of harbouring hostile thoughts.´

This idiot´s attention is directed to an excellent article at the American Spectator which reveals the real truth about Cumulus and it´s fiscal problems. Hint: Has nothing do with El Rushbo and everything to do with the two incompetent brothers running the company.

CNN - Communist News Network.

I´ve been a Rush fan since his re-start on Sacramento´s KFBK in the mid 80´s. That said: the problem with Rush, Glenn, Mark, Michael, Herman, and the others is that they are adept at defining the problem, but timid in detailing the solution. Those who are politically conscious know what the problems are by now. What is lacking is leadership to guide and coordinate an effort to correct these problems. Writing your GOP congressman will not cut it, as long as the Establishment runs the GOP. Both major parties are corrupt. Conservative voices must band together and promote a new party, just as Glenn and the others promoted the Tea Party movement in 2009/2010. The Tea Parties (more accurate) are not political parties, however, and that is what is needed.

Sorry. That was a three year old article early in CNN´s descent to irrelevancy. According to an article last month:

"CNN ratings troubles — the audience has dropped 37 percent over the past six years — have long been masked by rising profits generated by Time Warner’s many cable and digital properties. But in recent years, CNN’s inability to attract viewers consistently has begun to make a noticeable dent. The network’s advertising revenue fell 10 percent last year ..."

Like Rush said, he lives in Øvomit´s head.

In fact, since a day doesn´t go by that at least a half dozen of the big-time lie-beral talking heads doesn´t mention Rush, I would say that that proves without a question that he is still VERY relevant!!!

Piers Morgan normally gets around 500,000 people to watch his pathetic show on CNN. Despite this, the man few Americans actually know by name had the nerve to say Wednesday that conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh is “too old and too boring” to be a regular on CNN’s revival of Crossfire. After playing a clip from a 1990 Crossfire featuring Limbaugh, Morgan said: From 1990 that´s Crossfire with a younger Rush Limbaugh making his case as a guest. Tonight the great news is that he’s not back on Crossfire. He´s too old and too boring.

A onetime rising star in national labor circles who headed California´s biggest union local was convicted Monday on federal charges that he stole tens of thousands of dollars from his low-income members. Tyrone Freeman, who represented about 190,000 homecare workers as a leader of the Service Employees International Union, was found guilty on 14 counts after a 10-day trial in Los Angeles. Jurors deliberated two and a half days before returning their verdict. The trial followed a nearly four-year investigation triggered by a series of Times reports on Freeman´s financial practices.

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin
