Sorry for the dearth of our usual brilliant political analysis this week - we had a family emergency that caught us off-guard. We will be back on our game next week. In the meantime, enjoy this little bit of schadenfreud:So many sponsors have dropped him, that the Rush Limbaugh show is broadcasting dead air during the commercial breaks
According to Media Matters’ count, at least 48 advertisers had cancelled their ads by Thursday afternoon.
Limbaugh played the controversy down on Wednesday, telling listeners that “everything’s cool.”
“Nobody is losing money here, including us, in all this,” he said. “[The advertisers] are not canceling the business on our stations. They’re just saying they don’t want their spots to appear in my show. We don’t get any revenue from ‘em anyway. The whole effort is to dispirit you.”
Have a Happy Fridee!!
