Exclusive: Clear Channel Shifting
Limbaugh in Major Markets

Breitbart Big Journalism, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/5/2013 2:48:34 PM

On Thursday, Clear Channel started announcing major lineup shifts in three of its biggest markets. In Los Angeles, Limbaugh will be moving from the top talk station in the market, KFI, to its sister station, KTLK, which will be flipped from a liberal talk station to a primarily conservative talker anchored by Limbaugh. Breitbart News has learned that Clear Channel will soon be announcing a similar change in San Francisco, as well as confirming the long expected move in New York from Cumulus-owned WABC to WOR, which was purchased by Clear Channel last year. These moves are not unexpected from

Watch this get big play in the liberal media. "..Rush Limbaugh on his way out...Rush Limbaugh in a ratings slide...Rush Limbaugh being downgraded to a mediocre station."

It´s all so predictable. They won´t be able to pass this one without some snarky, biased comments.

Yes they will #1, but the way things turn out in the end will not please them. The sister station will will become number one after Rush has been there awhile. He is, after all, number one in the business.

Wherever Rush goes, his listeners will follow and demand their local radio stations carry his show. It doesn´t matter where he moves to.

Iit sounds like conservative talk radio is being consolidated into one massive megaphone. Sounds like a good idea. If it´s good enough for NPR it´s good enough for conservatives.

Rush´s synidcator has been doing this for years. When Rush´s syndicator was bought out by Clear Channel probably eight or ten years ago, he quickly moved from KTSA to WOAI in Clear Channel´s hometown of San Antonio.

Happened so quickly that Friday he was on KTSA. Monday he wasn´t on anywhere and Tuesday at Noon he was on WOAI, the first station ever owned by the Clear Channel people (took a couple of months before they went live at 11 am Central).

Makes sense for the Clear Channel owned stations. Their revenue and ratings go up, their competitor takes it in the shorts and all is well.

Rush will do just fine, thank you.

Over the past several years, Clear Channel has moved Limbaugh from higher-rated stations to lower-rated stations in an attempt to give those stations a shot in the arm...

Rush does, indeed, anchor a fabulous line-up on KFI, from Handel in the Morning through John and Ken during the drive home. KTLK? Never even heard of it. Seriously.

NFL faces pressure from Congress
to change Redskins’ name
Washington Post, by Mark Maske, Paul Kane*    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 2/10/2014 2:31:06 AM     Post Reply
Two members of Congress have written a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell urging Goodell and the league “to take a formal position in support of a name change” by the Washington Redskins. The letter by Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) is to be sent Monday to Goodell. “The NFL can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” Cantwell and Cole write in the letter. “It is clear that you haven’t heard the leading voices of this country — and not just Indian

The glitches and other problems with the ObamaCare website that sparked a national firestorm are similar to those military veterans using the federal government’s online benefits system have routinely faced for about the past 18 months. Eric Jenkins, a veteran and American Federation of Government Employees representative, recently told Congress that during January the Veterans Benefits Management System crashed about once a week with downtimes ranging from one hour to multiple days. “The constant … technical issues and frequent shutdowns make it difficult for me and others to serve veterans,” Jenkins told a House Veterans Affairs subcommittee.

When Speaker John Boehner declared in December that conservative groups like Heritage Action for America had “lost all credibility,” Washington was stunned. For years, the powerful organizations had pushed congressional Republicans further and further to the right, keeping score of every vote — even if a “no” vote meant shutting down the government. But Heritage Action is now rolling out a less confrontational approach by holding its first-ever Conservative Policy Summit on Monday to celebrate ideas from conservative stars like Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas, and Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho on everything from health care

Does Michael Needham run

David Brooks seems to think so. On NBC’s Meet the Press, Brooks said that the immigration reform debate is really “about who runs the Republican Party.” That is, “do the leaders who want to have a long-term future, a presidential, national future as a multi-racial party, do they run the party, or does Mike [Needham] run the party. And the truth is, Mike runs the party.” Brooks is partly right. The immigration debate is about whose influence is primary within the Republican Party. And he has not misidentified Contestant Number 1 — it’s the Party leaders coupled with the business

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) says she agrees that Republicans can´t trust President Obama to enforce the law, but they should immediately move forward on comprehensive immigration reform, anyway. (Video) “Here’s the deal: The status quo is totally unacceptable,” Ayotte said on CBS News’ Face The Nation with Bob Schieffer on Sunday. Ayotte, who rode the Tea Party wave in 2010 to her election to the Senate but has emerged as one of the upper chamber´s more liberal Republicans, conceded there is a "trust deficit" with Obama.

The Associated Press writes that MSNBC, the network that is rife with anti-conservative and anti-GOP rhetoric, is beginning to realize – together with its corporate affiliates – that its personal attacks on Republicans may not be in its interest. The AP reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin, who apologized to GOP National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus after MSNBC’s twitter feed contained a message that implied the political right wing would hate a Cheerios ad featuring a biracial couple, “has quietly put the word out to hosts to avoid personal attacks.” MSNBC’s recent history has featured firing a staff member who was

MADISONVILLE, Texas— Bursts of applause had already interrupted Rafael Cruz repeatedly, but the loudest cheer of the night came when the Cuban-born pastor finally made the Barack Obama-Fidel Castro comparison the crowd had been waiting for. "He acts no different than that bearded guy I left behind in Cuba," the father of firebrand U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz told a packed tea party gathering. Likening the president to Castro has become something of a trademark for the elder Cruz, and it´s actually one of his milder comments. The 74-year-old from suburban Dallas has in the past called for sending Obama "back

WASHINGTON— Sen. Chuck Schumer says he has an easy fix to the GOP´s latest doubts about overhauling the nation´s immigration laws. Pass legislation this year, but don´t let the law go into effect until after President Barack Obama´s second term ends. The New York Democrat offered his idea Sunday on NBC´s Meet the Press in response to House Speaker John Boehner. The Ohio Republican recently cast doubts on the prospects for an immigration overhaul this year, saying President Barack Obama can´t be trusted to implement the law.

WASHINGTON — Fans of the Jet City Rollergirls are hearing public announcements about Obamacare when they go to the roller derby track north of Seattle. Univision, the nation´s largest Spanish-language television network, is airing half-hour specials about healthy living and educating viewers about how to sign up for coverage under President Obama´s health law.

Dems Trying to Blame IRS IG
for Targeting Scandal
PJ Media, by Rick Moran    Original Article

This is really quite the novel approach to the IRS targeting scandal by congressional Democrats. Seeking to change the narrative in order to get on top of scandal, Democrats have hit upon the idea to blame the IRS Inspector General, Russell George, for the scandal getting out of hand. How do they figure that? It appears that many Democrats were unhappy with Mr. George’s initial report on the scandal, believing it to be “misleading.” Mmmkay, whatever. But now they’ve got a mind to file an ethics complaint against George because they think he is conspiring with Darrell Issa’s oversight committee

WASHINGTON— As Hillary Rodham Clinton mulls a second presidential bid, liberals are closely watching whether the onetime supporter of the Iraq war moves to the left or straddles the center. Democrats say economic issues such as raising the minimum wage and protecting Social Security have become paramount for anyone aiming to lead the party after years of tough economic times. During the 2008 primary campaign against Barack Obama, Clinton was hurt by her stand on the Iraq war while she was a senator. But she burnished her image among party loyalists during four years at the State Department in the

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence. He adds that internet users are becoming increasingly carefree in their use of the punctuation mark - with some professional writers following suit, according to The Times. ´[You] could take them out of a great deal of modern American

LONDON - Stronger winds which have cooled the surface of the Pacific Ocean could explain what is likely to be a temporary slowdown in the pace of global warming this century, researchers said.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time.

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham battled the rest of the Fox News Sunday panel over immigration, arguing that immigration reform and current enforcement of immigration laws were weakening the American workforce, even as her fellow panelists countered that reform would bolster the economy. “I think what we’re seeing here is a split inside the Republican Party between two staunch conservatives,” host Chris Wallace said, going on to ply Ingraham with a Wall Street Journal editorial that called flinching on reform “de facto amnesty.” “As far as I can tell, the Wall Street Journal is on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer,

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."
