Is this the beginning of the end for right-wing radio?

According to a Politico report, Cumulus Media — the second-largest owner and operator of AM and FM radio stations in America — does not plan to renew its contracts with either Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. In practice, the decision will drop the two highly rated hosts from more than 40 Cumulus channels in major media markets.

According to Politico, the decision to drop Limbaugh and Hannity is financial. Cumulus and Premiere Networks, which distributes the two shows, have been unable to reach an agreement on the cost of distribution rights.

Cumulus’ disagreement with Limbaugh and Hannity on the question of their value is almost certainly tied to their trouble finding advertisers who are comfortable running alongside the right-wing hosts’ often offensive and controversial content. ThinkProgress reports that 142 advertisers dropped Limbaugh’s show after he launched a series of sexist attacks against women’s health activist Sandra Fluke in 2012, and Cumulus CEO Jack Dickey has publicly suggested that the exodus cost his company millions of dollars. Similarly, ThinkProgress has reported that nearly 100 advertisers dropped Hannity’s show, and his reputation as a ratings giant has been damaged in the wake of his disastrously inaccurate 2012 election coverage.

Even if Cumulus does drop Limbaugh and Hannity, they will not simply disappear from the airwaves — indeed, they are reportedly already set to sign with rival syndicate WOR. But there are still major questions about the broader future of right-wing radio, as the majority of its listeners tend to be older, whiter, and consequently winding a slow path towards demographic irrelevance. As radio executive Randall Bloomquist told The Daily Beast’s John Avlon back in 2011: ““There are a lot of program directors whose radio ‘spider-sense’ is tingling…They’re thinking ‘this conservative thing is kind of running its course.'”

“‘We’re saying the same things from morning ’til night and yes, we’ve got a very loyal core audience,'” he added, “‘but if we ever want to grow, if we want to expand, we’ve got to be doing more than 18 hours a day of ‘Obama is a socialist.’”

UPDATE: Limbaugh responded to the report on his show Monday.

“You are gonna be able to get this radio program on as many, if not more, radio stations down the road than it’s on now, and what you’re being treated to is just a public business negotiation,” he said, according to Politico“Negotiations have been taken public by one side of this. I thought it was done. I thought it was over with. And folks, I would love… I mean, I love inside baseball stuff, and I would love to pass this on, but I must use proper business restraint here.”

He added, “”But I just want to assure you, everything’s cool, and as always, what’s on the table for this program is growth.”

    The constant hate and vitriol wears on a person. Eventually all but the worst cases grow tired of it and look for something pleasant. Of course there are those that come to enlightenment.

    • Jim Quinn

      Yea there is never any hate and vitriol coming from the left, remember when Bush was president, of course you do,Odummy reminds the left all the time. I remember MSNBC and all the other left wing outlets treated Bush like he was their best friend..I like to let the left know that I have hundreds of pictures and links to show how nice the left was to Bush, but they never want to see them.. They must have copies already….Fucking asshats,, wait here is a couple of nice quotes from the loving and Non-vitriolic left…..
      iberal pundit and columnist Maureen Dowd referred to “extra chromosome conservatives” in an interview with Bill Maher’s on HBO. The National Down Syndrome Society issued a statement saying use of the term “extra chromosome” as a negative descriptor “is insensitive and demeaning to the more than 350,000 people in the United States who have Down syndrome, which occurs when there is an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. Regardless of who originally coined the term… Ms. Dowd has perpetuated it as a slur against hundreds of thousands of Americans who are contributing members of society and who deserve the same respect that we all expect.”[3]
      Obama White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is reported to commonly denigrate persons he disagrees with as “retarded;” he was pointedly criticized for this by Sarah Palin.[4]
      Former Vice President, Nobel Prize winner, and senior Democratic Party elder statesman Al Gore mocked children with Down syndrome by referring to his political critics as having “an extra chromosome.”[5]

      • Jim Quinn

        Would be more than happy to share more, then it would be just like looking in the leftist mirror, wouldn’t it?

        • greyparrot

          Haven’t you yet learned that attempting to reason with these brain dead libs is like trying to pick up the clean end of a turd? This country is on a suicide mission and is being aided and abetted by them all in an effort to continue their messiah worship of the empty suit in the WH.

      • ShellSheahan

        It is Down’s Syndrome not Down. *sigh* If you’re going to attempt to “educate” people about Down’s Syndrome then you should, at the very least, be able to know how to spell it!

        • Jim Quinn

          Stupidity rules you. The “Down” Syndrome comment was a comment made by AL Gore, as you can see by the [5] in brackets, it was being referenced from another story. .And your original comment had the word ‘now instead of “not”. Proving the point when you can’t win the debate, attack the messenger. Here is your original sentence, copied from Disqus…”It
          is Down’s Syndrome “now” Down. “Not much sense being made there…..In other words you should not criticize someone’s spelling, when you can’t spell yourself..

        • The Myth

          You are incorrect. My brother has Down Syndrome (and is now 32 years old). This is what the Mayo Clinic calls it, as well as the several other organizations my family is part of. If only politicians had the genuine and sincere love of people that those “with an extra chromosome have”, this country would be a much better place. You are not incorrect that “Down’s” is used, though. We either say “Down Syndrome” OR “Down’s”. I don’t hear “Down’s Syndrome” very often. It’s usually only “Down’s” when shortening it and leaving off syndrome. For what it’s worth.

      • highpckts

        That’s it? Our apologies to all Down’s syndrome children! Seriously, that’s it?? Geez!

    • LotusJoan

      Rush is popular with a certain type of person because he tells them that their
      problems are not a result of poor personal choices but rather a vast conspiracy
      of Jews, black Americans, Latin Americans, liberals, the collective
      “other”. He then tells them they need to act against their own interest to “win back” the America of the 50’s. Because of the median age of his audience their memories of the 50’s are filtered thru his rose colored glasses and their dementia. No matter where he goes his audience and his relevancy are dying daily and those of us with any sense are happy about that ( not the people dying ).

      • Russell Byrd

        I thought this was appropriate. Thanks go to jarheadjoe.

        • Jim Quinn

          The split between the have’s and have not’s have gone up more under Odummy than any other President.. wonder why that is…

          • Russell Byrd

            Simple, Oquinny. Republican obstruction and the incredible greed of the wealthy. You asked, I told it like it is. Enough said!

          • Larry Jones

            Let me answer you question with some facts. First, when President Eisenhower was president income over a certain limit was taxed at 90% and the middle class was in great shape. Then other Republicans decided to start giving more and more tax breaks to wealthy. Well, after while less and less money went into running the federal government and guess what President Clinton decided it was time to raise some of the tax limits on the wealthy. EVERY Republican in congress voted against his first budget. They called it the highest tax rate ever imposed, even though that was not true. Eisenhower had a much higher tax rate than President Clinton on the wealthy. The Republicans said President Clinton’s first budget would wreck the economy. Guess what they were wrong. Under President Clinton we had the largest increase in our economy ever under peace time conditions. Now let us look to what happened next. George W. and the Republicans take over the government. They lower taxes while fighting two wars and expand the government spending. Now let us look at what has happened under President Obama. EVERYTHING he has tried to do has been blocked by a hostile congress that is not interested in making the economy strong, it is only interested in stopping anything the President tries to do. The Republicans do not want economic growth because they feel if that happens they will not get their man in the White House. You ask why the split has occurred ask your Republican representative.

          • Stephen Clark

            Wrong! Both Senate and House of Congress was in Dem control for two years after Obama was elected. That Congress gave us all of the mess you are now experiencing, including the nightmare called Obamacare……….

          • Justin Napolitano

            You leave out the fact that he Republicans used the filibuster to stop almost all Democratic legislation from passing.

          • Barry Roope

            The nightmare of affordable healthcare insurance, OH, NO, somebody just got some healthcare! I’m Terrified! HELP!! Somebody please help! A poor child just got his teeth cleaned! Life in America has changed forever, This horrible nightmare, Obamacare, a senior Citizen just got her medicine for Cancer! Will this horrible nightmare ever end!! Can somebody please saves us from getting affordable healthcare? Me and Steven Clark are so scared, were having nightmares!!

          • highpckts

            Wrong!! It Took 8 years of Bush to get us in this shape and while we may have made some headway in the first 2 years, the right convinced their cohorts that what he was doing was bad for the economy and working fast enough, Like good little followers, you listened! Now that we know the GOP’s true agenda we will fix that problem a the polls! It’s already happening!! Also, quit spewing hearsay about the ACA being a nightmare because in the end it will prove itself just like Medicare did!!

          • Stephen Clark

            Sorry, but you cannot rewrite history…. The Democrats own this economy and the unfolding Obamacare nightmare. Socialism sounds good to you, but it fails every single time it is tried. Go to http://www.mycancellation.com and see the unhappiness. Where is your compassion for these people?

          • highpckts

            Ask any true Socialist and you will find out your definition is entirely wrong! It’s ok to own this economy because it’s a Hell of lot better than when Bush left office!!

          • Stephen Clark

            Here’s the definition according to We The People:
            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/socialism
            You must read American history to learn, and then understand that we are free people and do not wish to have a King. As you get older with more responsibilities, you will understand.

          • highpckts

            You are an asinine twerp who assumes you are talking to a kid like you! I’ve seen far more history than you! Our companies are not owned by the Government! Most of our government is owned by big money and lobbiest! That is who is pulling the strings, not the President!

          • Stephen Clark

            Oh OK, since you’re older can you tell me who owns Fannie and Freddie? Did you know they were at the core of the financial meltdown? Hmmm, if you do not like big money like Solyndra or lobbyists like Soros, then you should support the Flat or Fair tax to dissolve the IRS. Have you learned about the IRS, the Federal Reserve, and Jekyll Island? If you don’t know about these things, then you may be blindly cheering for the villians in your life.

          • highpckts

            Because of people like Limbaugh, Beck and Hannity that are so racist they have convinced their listeners that is the reason for all their ills because of a black President! Oh they are very careful in how they word it, but they get their message across!!

          • hydrangea1

            It’s not because he’s black, but because he’s a socialist who’s determined to destroy this country. I don’t care if he’s green striped, he’s a lousy president!

        • Jim Quinn

          I don’t threaten, but like I said I live on the South Side of Chicago, and if you would ever like to meet for a cup of coffee, let me know, I’ll message you where I get my coffee at, and what time I’ll be there…

          • Russell Byrd

            I don’t think I care to travel and waste time talking about how smart and important you consider yourself. Sorry.

  • disqus_fsqeoY3FsG

    So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, adieu, Au revoir, Goodbye To Limbaugh and Hannity.

    • RobertCHastings

      Now if they would just get rid of Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and about fifteen or twenty others.

      • hydrangea1

        Wouldn’t you leftists just love that! You leftists hate them because they tell the truth about what you are.

        • A_Schick
        • RobertCHastings

          “…they tell the truth about what you are.” Rush Limbaugh smokes $100+ (illegal) Cuban cigars, and drinks hundred-dollar bottle of wine and tries to pass himself off as one of us, as well as being addicted to oxycontin. Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Ann Coulter publish books that have absolutely NO relationship to truth – Beck’s latest “Control” claims current data demonstrates that gun control actually increases violence – his “current” graphs are from the year 2000 or earlier. You would not know the truth if it walked up to you and slapped you in the face.

          • hydrangea1

            And you know all this – how? BTW, the more honest citizens that have guns, the less crime. Thugs run from an armed individual.

          • Jim Quinn

            Like the hockey stick graph the liberals use..

        • Justin Napolitano

          They wouldn’t know the truth if it bit them on the ass.
          The truth is not what they sell. What their primary purpose is is to spread hate and discontent. They are very good at that.

          • Billy Gardener

            I really don’t think many of you folks on this site have actually listened to their shows. You just go with whatever your friends are saying about them. I’m not really a Hannity fan, so much – but he seems to be one nice guy on his show. He treats people with respect and dignity when they call in. So does Rush. So he (Rush) is a radio personality and those guys say a bunch of stuff that is sometimes startling. It’s a radio show…he’s a commentator. He doesn’t report news, he gets the news and reports his opinions. Yeah, sometimes he’s a bit arrogant, but many times, offensive or not – his opinions are right on the money. Everybody’s got an opinion. Everybody.
            We conservatives as a whole, don’t “hate” progressives. We have the right to like or dislike our politicians just like you do. In fact, many of us have fought and died so you can have the freedom to hate us and
            tell the world about it.
            No one person or group of people should be silenced in public by a gov’t entity because of what they think or believe. Even if you disagree with them. If you think it should be that way, you are a scary person.

          • unf0rg1v3n

            And many of us moderates did the same. Not all vets are conservative.

          • Billy Gardener

            I never assumed they were, but my point was about conservative soldiers/vets particularly. A lot of liberals think all conservatives are racist and full of anger and hate. It ain’t so. That’s all I was saying. I consider myself a right-leaning libertarian, btw. 😉 thanx

          • Justin Napolitano

            I have listened to them but during their shows I had to go vomit. The shit coming out of these people’s mouths would make a septic tank envious.

          • Billy Gardener

            I know what you mean, kind of. It’s just that you disagree, Justin. That’s all. Likewise, I can’t bring myself to listen to Bill Maher (and a few others) for long periods of time. Every now and then, he’s funny, but because of the things I’ve read about some of the almost cruel things he’s said, it’s hard to listen to him and not think about those things. However – I’m glad he has his niche and good luck to him.

          • Ed

            Justin, Justin, look at (and listen to) yourself !!

          • Jim Quinn

            Thank you Billy.

          • Billy Gardener

            And Thank you, too. I’ve been reading some of your comments on here. Are you a FReeper? 😉

          • Billy Gardener

            Also – I read yesterday that their spots may be taken over by Michael Savage and/or Mike Huckabee. So I would venture to say, it wasn’t total content that would be driving Cumulus to drop Rush and/or Hannity. I know Huckabee is a minister and Savage…well he’s just Savage. I don’t like him and *I* find him offensive and if he’s got a radio show, I won’t listen. But I don’t think he should be silenced by some authority. If they want to pay him to talk – let ’em. I can change the channel.

        • idamag

          Why don’t you far right-wing nut jobs go to the site that pats you on the back for being hateful. I am against political parties as they divide the nation and are destroying democracy, but people, like you, have convinced me there is more virtue on the left.

          • Ed

            Dear progressiveandproud: Ha, ha ! Your “reply” to my post demonstrates what a simple minded guy you are; it was also very amusing for me to, once more, marvel at the incredible emptiness of liberal “minds” (in quotations because you “liberal-progressives” don’t really possess a working, thinking brain). You think nothing of expressing the wish, as Robert did, to the effect that “… if they would just get rid of Ann Coulter, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and about fifteen or twenty others….”, but then you are soooo offended (amusingly offended !) when other people call you out on that and point out other people whom, to use Robert’s words, we should “get rid of”.
            So, progressive, having no intellectual substance, you then proceed to call me names and demand (how funny !!) that I “stay off of the web site”.
            Oh brother.
            Get a life ….

          • MPizana

            You are right Ed. So how about instead of vilifying one another we move America forward? And not by calling each other names or disparaging others, but by coming to agreement on what will make America better. That’s all I want. When I hear that people in the poor sections of the East are going to stables to receive free medical assistance and then see them fight against their best interest by vilifying government sponsored health care, it makes me shake my head in shame to know that people such as Rush and Hannity who they think have their back are doing them such a disservice to play upon their fears and patriotism. I am sure there is a special place in hell for people such as Rush. Dante has a wonderful description of this circle of hell.

          • Jim Quinn

            That’s been tried, and the right has been shit for trying to move to the center, The word compromise doesn’t mean your way or the highway,, it does now, and you brought on your self…

            Russell, come on ! Your lack of imagination, shown by your “copying and pasting” of my response, is so obvious.
            Try to give me an intelligent response, if you can, without using the “sh*t” word?
            Come on, Russell, I KNOW you can do better ….

          • Russell Byrd

            Like all your kind, “you’re a legend in your own mind.” I just used your own words to show your ignorant lack of “imagination.” And Ed, go back to your sh*t-hole. You stink up the place.

          • Ed

            Russell, you little obtuse (look it up, Russell !) mind: I am not the one “stinking up” this CESSPOOL forum of liberal, mindless idiots. The stink comes from the fact that it is a cesspool. Only one of every 4 or 5 comments is posted by somebody who lives AWAY from the cesspool (not in it like you do !)
            I repeat, Russell, try to get a life ! LOL !!!

          • Russell Byrd

            Ed, you are just a prevaricator. There probably are no words you know that I would have any need of looking up. I am highly educated, and I am a trained researcher, historian, and geographer amongst other things. That, in contrast to the illogic and squalor of your incredibly small mind.

            Jerks like you hate America and Americans. In fact, you hate just about everybody. All you Teatards do is complain, complain, and complain. Teanderthals are toxic to the health of the nation. I have worked with your kind all my life and you, and yours, are totally useless bitchers that think you are owed more than everyone else. Your ilk gets ahead by bullying and having your nose stuck up the bosses’ ass.

            If this is such a cesspool, what is a white knight like you doing wallowing here. Don’t give the standard shit about “waking anybody up.” Everyone of those “Liberals” you hate is quite awake without your help. In fact, everyone knows you are here from you stench.

            So once again, go back to your shit-hole. I do have a life that is far beyond the comprehension of a mental midget like you. So I have no fears in that quarter. Try again, asshole!

          • Ed

            RussellByrd:
            Russell, you little twerp, my academic education far surpasses yours but I only mention it, not because that has ANY bearing (at all) on our “discussion”, but because you, Russell, felt the inferiority-complex-inspired need to claim yours as superior to mine. In your ineptness and insecurity, you felt the need to compare (your) “education” to (my) “mind”. FYI, dear Russell, the two concepts are as far apart as “being poor” is from “being BROKE” and as far apart as “having money” is from “being RICH”.
            I know, I know, these concepts are very difficult for you, but do try to understand.
            Russ, you are sadly PATHETIC ….

          • Russell Byrd

            You saying I am pathetic is really quite a compliment from you, but irrelevant. In other words, an idiot tells me they cannot understand, so I must be dumber than they are. How arrogant and ignorant. I doubt seriously that you have any education and I did not “compare” anything. I merely pointed out that I am quite capable of understanding the portions of your conversation that are coherent, without assistance. As for the rest of your incoherent drivel, I can only guess. However, I did look up twerp, and your picture was “featured” next to the definition.

            So, lying dumb-ass, you are the one that challenged me to look up the word “obtuse.” You are the one that opened the door to proof of your own stupidity. You would not have been so quick to bring the subject up if it had not been bothering you. I merely pointed out your ignorance and arrogance. Those two traits go hand-in-hand and are overpoweringly strong in you.

            6) I can “sense” when people want to “play” me and I don’t play along; you, old chap, can be “played” very easily: I have been “playing you like a fiddle” or, perhaps better: I have been “playing” you like the worthless DUNCE that you are !!
            7) I can make you mad; you can NOT make me mad;
            8) I am wayyyyy better looking !!

          • Russell Byrd

            Just for instance, if you were not mad, you would not keep trying to do the impossible. . . . You might be right on #8, but the rest is a load. Anyway, no one can see either of us, so even #8 is meaningless.

            Yeah, I am the one that would be “playing you like a fiddle,” except of course, you do not have any strings.

            And again, crawl back to your shit-hole. You have never realized what everyone else knew long ago. That phrase HAS been playing you like a fiddle!

            Bwwwwaaaaahhhhh! Stoopid!

            Oh Russell, stop being such a childish great-great grandpa …

          • Russell Byrd

            Ed, stop being such a mental midget. You are capable of being better, but you do not desire enlightenment.

            Now, for however many times it is, squeeze on back into your shit-hole.

          • Ed

            You are funny, Russell, …. in a somewhat weird sense; I think you are a little, shall we say, … “off your rocker”? “not playing with all your marbles”??

          • Russell Byrd

            Ed, you are a mental midget. You are not qualified to tell if someone is insane or mentally deficient. You are insane AND mentally deficient. You have the mind of an idiot and the maturity of a child.

            Oh shucks, now I understand. You really did mean marbles. Like the ones kids shoot around. Yeah, I put up childish things long ago. I really do not know where all the old cat’s eyes are at now.

            Either that are you are comparing those tiny gonads you must be so proud of. Tsk, tsk. Again, scamper on back to your shit-hole.

          • Russell Byrd

            Looks to me like you lost all the latest exchanges. A couple of them quite badly. But carry on carrying on. 🙂

          • Russell Byrd

            I promised to tell you something. Most of your ilk don’t get it though. It’s no secret though, as I usually tell it upfront in these little spats. I do hate ignorance, arrogance, inanity, and their manifestation , . . BULLYING. I only bully bullies. I enjoy it greatly. It is a peculiarity of mine, but I DO enjoy it greatly.

            I am telling you this because I am very nearly a pathologically honest guy. I feel guilty that I did not warn you before. Our relationship is like a sadist and a masochist. I enjoy immensely beating up on pain seekers such as yourself. I will go on forever, and you are the next victim in an incredibly long line.

            Am I wasting my time? Sure am, but I am killing yours. Think of it this way. If you are such an important dude, you are wasting yourself on someone that you know is inferior. Of course, we BOTH know that you are really an Einstein wannabee that has no education, no sense, no talent, and no hope of ever attaining any part of your goals.

            So, please, please go scamper on back to your shit-hole. Am I being obtuse enough yet. (Come to think of it, Samuel L. Jackson used the word in a movie. Cool, now I understand where you got “obtuse.” You watch “educational TV.”)

            🙂

          • Ed

            Russell: Sorry that my answer to you came so late. You see, I have other, better things to do than waiting in front of my monitor until I can read your response. You, on the other hand, DO NOT have anything to do with your worthless time and therefore you don’t mind staying up after 12:30am waiting to be able to “bully” me (P.S. – I had a BIG laugh with that one!! Oh, Russell, you rascal you, quit bullying me !!!, har, har, har, har !!!!)
            Start doing SOMETHING with your time, Russell … LOL !!

          • Russell Byrd

            Does not matter if your answer was late. The content is off-topic, juvenile, and very lame. Not really worth my time reading, but I can and did read it. Unlike yourself.

            Think about it. If I was waiting on you, that just means you have no possibility of ever gaining that great victory that you foolishly think you have coming. I have bashed every post you have made, though like the typical Teatard, you lie constantly that I haven’t. You typically do not read posts and rarely reply to what was posted. So be it, but if you are right, then your “needs” are doomed to not being met. This time you will not get away without an appropriate amount of grief. Sorry, I do use a lot of words over six letters.

            Think in six months when you are screaming for relief from the guy that has no life except to make you miserable. I have to laugh when I think of how stupid you really sound. I will try not to bring that up again. I am honest, unlike yourself, so my conscience will not allow me not to warn you.

            As always, slither back to your shit-hole.

          • Russell Byrd

            You even lie about your education to make a point. I guess you attended the Federal University of Central Kansas. Otherwise
            known as “Ole Fuck U.” I guess you earned a PhD in Sphincterology while you were there. Because you are one big lying ass-hole.

            So lying and spinning will always be called lying and spinning by me. I do not agree with anything a liar lies about. And what have you been smoking in that pipe, anyway? Now slither on back to your shit-hole.

          • Ed

            Russell, you vindictive old fart: Look at the shameful way you respond to my message containing an offer to bring out the “peace pipe” between us. My post contained not even ONE offensive word and ended with the following phrase: “Life is too short, Russell, to take a post on this forum very seriously ….The best to you !”
            … and look at how you respond …. Why don’t you show my post and your answer to your great-great grandchildren? I’m sure they would scold you, being the balanced adults they are !
            Is posting your venomous vitriol the most exciting thing going on in your life at this moment? Because if it is, Russell, I pity you; I really, really pity you. Go and find something useful to do for your fellow man on your free time (the word “free” defines ALL your time, apparently).
            I repeat, Russell: Life is too short to take a post on this forum very seriously ….
            The best to you, again !!

          • Russell Byrd

            REMEMBER: According to you, your life is much more important, and your time more important, than we useless slugs you lie at.

            IMPORTANTLY: Posting a farewell, while you are lamely bashing me, is not an offer of peace. Just the attempt of an inferior intellect to blindside his views onto someone stronger than he, when his bullying assault failed miserably. I called it the way it is. . . .

            Actually Ed, you did not offer anything. Peace on your terms, as always. Like your idol Adolf, you just want to lull us into a sense of peace while you work like a maggot to get your way.

            You do not understand that I like doing this. I bully bullies. I love doing it. Actually, there are only two downsides to doing it. First, the amount of time I have to spend, but of course you are wasting your time too. Once again, REMEMBER: According to you, your life is much more important, and your time more important, than we useless slugs you lie at. Second, it is too easy busting your chops. Your prime defenses are ignorance and arrogance. Those traits always seem to travel together.

            So, this ends when you will it to. Or when you become so redundant and repetitive that it is no longer fun. You see, unlike yourself, I have a surplus of empathy. In my mind’s eye, I can see you typing up another stooopid reply. And I understand why you feel you must.

            So once again, crawl back through that sphincter that nurtures you and is the essence of your entire being. AND YOUR EDUCATION or lack thereof.

          • Ed

            Russell: Ha, ha, haaaa!!

            You ARE funny, Russell !!

            You REALLY are !!

            I repeat, nonetheless, why don’t you show my posts and your responses to your great-great grandchildren? I’m sure they would scold you, being the balanced adults they are !

          • Russell Byrd

            The only shame here is you. . . . It is that simple. Your just TOO stupid. A number of people have commented to me about your posts. Honestly, the only criticism that I have received is that I even bother with a weak mind like you. Of course, they understand that I just want to see you continue to waste your time. All for nothing.

            Obviously you are rather less superior than you think. Wasting so much time on an inferior being such as me. I think you are hilarious.

            Again, crawl back to your shit-hole.

          • Ed

            Russell, old chap: Again, that was funny!
            You say: “A number of people have commented to me about your posts.” I ask you: Are these “people” your friends? Do you HAVE ANY friends?

            …. are they as OBTUSE as you are ??

          • Russell Byrd

            There is only on obtuse individual in these recent conversations, and I am replying to him. My friends are my business, but yes, I have a number. Friends to me are important people that I value highly. People that have close connections to me and that I trust. Unlike yourself, that thinks all the right-wing, foaming at the mouth, bitchers and racists, that you can collect together on Facebook are your friends.

            Scamper your obtuse ass back to your shit-hole.

          • Ed

            Russell: So now I know for sure: your so-called friends are, not only as obtuse (now that I taught you the meaning of the word, I might as well keep using it !) as you are, but also liberal Obama useful idiots as you, my senile friend.

          • Russell Byrd

            Left to you, i would never learn anything. Ignorance cannot teach anything. In fact, I really doubt you know what the word means. You are just trying to be clever so that I will explain “obtuse” to you. You are too stoopid to use a dictionary. Not a surprise since you admitted your intellectual inferiority. BUT, I will never explain anything to you. As for senile, that is the Rush lover profile, or didn’t you read the article. Oh yeah, you can’t.

          • Russell Byrd

            And yet again, crawl back to your shit-hole. Seriously, just like a village needs its idiot (“W”), a shit-hole needs its turd.

          • Russell Byrd

            I forgot to add: Thanks for avoiding a reply to the above post that was totally on point. Tacit agreement is fine with me and as much as I can honestly expect from you.

          • Ed

            Russell, Russell !!
            You need (professional) help.

            Go get it. Thanks to Obama, it should be free …

          • Russell Byrd

            Thank you Mr. President. Even Ed agrees, people should not suffer or die from lack of medical care.

            Actually, in the richest nation that has ever existed on this planet, by several times over, healthcare should be free. The failure to understand that is a mental and emotional defect of yours. Evil is right in your mind, or what passes as such. You are just another sociopath. Yeah, look it up. Oh I know, using a dictionary would take some basic knowledge. Too much even for a Doctor of Sphincterology, such as yourself. Go ahead and claim you are better educated. At least one of us knows better, and that you are just wasting your time typing more lies. At least, I can name where I went to school. Unlike yourself, that got an attendance certificate from the Federal University of Central Kansas. Like I said before, good ole “FUCK U.” Don’t like it, sorry, there is a lot more where that came from.

            Now, go slither back to the sphincter that gave birth to you.
            Bwwwwwaaaaaahhhhhh!

            Maybe next post I will tell you something you are too stupid to realize. It is about how you have been played all along.

          • Ed

            Russ: I have been “played” all along ?! Oh, Russell, you senile fart, you kill me of uncontrollable laughter !! ROTFL !!! (look it up !!)

          • Russell Byrd

            You never read the article, did you. The part about Rush fans . . . older, whiter, . . . headed for demographic irrelevance. Eventually, all the people you have disdain so badly will sit back and watch your rotten ass starve. And remember the part about older. That’s you baby. So, if you are too stoooopid to learn, we will play forever. I explained in great detail all the reasons, but you are so ignorant and arrogant you want to keep this rolling. Guess what, after you give up screaming, I will still be posting on this thread. At least, until you block me.

Except for some parts of Texas and Georgia, all of your paradise is going down the tubes. BLUE states are already paying to keep the populations in those RED states from starving.

            Democratic California Gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown was condemned by the Anti-Defamation League for “Offensive And Inappropriate” remarks about GOP challenger Meg Whitman in 2010.[25] Brown later attacked Whitman again with extraordinary vile sexist gutter language directed at the female challenger.[26] The California National Organization for Women, a liberal feminist group, did not withdraw its endorsement of Brown.

            New Hampshire Democratic State Representative Timothy Horrigan posted on Facebook his wish Sarah Palin and Levy Johnson would have been onboard the airplane crash that killed former Alaska Senator Ted Stevens. Horrigan wrote “a dead Palin would be even more dangerous than a live one…she is all about her myth” and if she was dead, she wouldn’t the target of the liberals attempting to embarrass her

            Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann called conservative columnist and blogger Michelle Malkin a “mashed up bag of meat with lipstick on it”

            MSNBC talkshow host Lawrence O’Donnell said of Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, “Michael Steele is dancing for his real master, the RNC.

            Former Democratic President Bill Clinton, when asking Sen. Ted Kennedy for his endorsement of Hillary Clinton, said of Obama: “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

            U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has been the relentless target of the most vile liberal hatred since his appointment, being viewed as a “race traitor” on account of his conservative views. In 2011, a group of white liberal protesters said on camera that they wanted to “hang him” and “send him back to the fields” and all sorts of other hate speech against him.

            Former Vermont Governor and current DNC chairman, Howard Dean joked during a speech, “You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? Only if they had the hotel staff in here.

            Alberto Gonzales, the first Hispanic U.S. Attorney General, was consistently mocked on liberal websites as “Alberto ‘Speedy’ Gonzales” during his tenure. Speedy Gonzales is a reference to a disparaging stereotypical cartoon character of Hispanics that Hollywood attempted to popularize in the 1950s and 60s. Upon his retirement, NBC News anchor Matt Lauer called Gonzales “a piñata” for the Democrats

            Barack Obama’s pastor and mentor Jeremiah Wright, being asked a question about Obama, said, “Them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me.” The story was buried by the liberal-aligned MSM.

            Rev. Al Sharpton picketed a Jewish store in Harlem, NY over a landlord dispute. Sharpton personally incited the protesters chanting ‘bloodsucking Jews.’ When it was all over, a protester ran into the store shooting people and set the place on fire.

          • Russell Byrd

            Actually, if you had any sense, and see through the irrational hatred, you would see that you have actually made a pretty good case FOR those you hate so badly. If you remove the out right lies, and compare the supposed “Lib’s” hatred to the disgusting bigotry, racism, and hatred of your heroes, then your entire post collapses like a house of cards.

            For instance, “. . . Ed Schultz Likens Limbaugh to Hitler.” Five minutes of listening to Limbog and any decent person knows it’s true. Cheney? He is a disgusting, greedy bigot that lied and bullied us into two bankrupting wars. Add to that the direct responsibility for 4000+ deaths of military personnel, many times that in maimed and permanently damaged people, and more than 100,000 civilian deaths, and YOU THINK CHENEY IS A GOOD GUY? He is a treasonous mass murderer. What does the law say about the punishment of that?

            And you sacks of shit still go off about Clinton and a blow-job. Clinton lied, maybe so, but thousands didn’t die and trillions weren’t spent.

          • Jim Quinn

            So tell me where are the outright lies ..Show me some of that so called bigotry, or racism, maybe when the black senator was spit on. Maybe when Odummy was a liar on the house floor, how many on the left signed on for that so-called war, How many have died under Obama? You are a fucking loon. My favorite Cheney bullied us.. as we like to say, you things on the left have no spine. You had the House and Senate, and didn’t do a fucking thing.., you had the White House, Senate and the House, and still didn’t do a fucking thing, and back to your racist right wing. Show me or shut the fuck up you spineless piece of shit.. As a President Clinton sucked just a bit more than Monica, The job of the President wasn’t to get blowjobs, don’t forget the other five women Clinton abused. Clinton wasn’t impeached for getting a blowjob, he was impeached for lying to congress…. you stupid fuck.. You can trust a thief, but you can’t trust a liar….

          • Russell Byrd

            As briefly as I can, about half of what you have written are unsubstantiated right-wing clams. Your racism and bigotry are classic.

            When was Obama, he is YOUR President after all, lying on the House floor? Damn liar!
            How many have died under Obama? Less than what would have died under Bush. AND did die under Bush. As well, those deaths are “inherited” from your wonderboy’s war. And screw Benghazi. Over ten attacks and over an hundred people were killed under Bush. And no one said much about it. So you misrepresented facts again! LIAR!
            As for Clinton, you have ignored the facts! Blow jobs do not equate with trillions spent and hundreds of thousands of casualties. Once again, you LIE!
            As for lying to Congress, the questions he was asked were did not properly pertain to his official duties in any. And guess what, I already said several times that it does not equate with mass murder. As well, BushCheneyReagan lied all the time about things a lot more important. So you are yet again a LIAR!
            Everyone with a mind knows the impeachment was just a grandstand play by a bunch of moral hypocrites to preoccupy a successful President, so he would fail at his job. So again, you LIE!
            You SOB’s HATE America and Americans. You just want to have your way and tell everyone else to kiss your ass. For you peace and harmony are bad. Control and violence are your makeweights.
            As for the war, EVERYONE knows the truth. Cheney, and re-thieve-icons championed the wars and dared anyone to stand up to them. Democrats caved in because there was no alternative, but most of all, because of the manufactured evidence leveraged by Cheney. SO you are one disgusting, non-repentent, Hell bound LIAR!

            And you are one naive SOB. Every LIAR is a thief. At the very least they steal reputations and usually anything else that isn’t nailed down. So using your own words, you are a thief as well.

            Plus everything that comes out of your mouth is an insult. That is why I
            write to you as I do. I despise bullies most of all. AND sir, you are
            a thief, liar, and bully.

            Video: 2007: On House Floor Rep. Pete Stark (D-Cal.) Called President George W Bush a Liar [Update: Shocker! Majority of Dems vote NO to censure Stark who only apologized under Dem threat of censure passing]

            (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama has not yet served three full years as commander in chief, but the number of U.S. casualties in the 10-year-old Afghanistan war has now tripled since Obama was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009.

            On that day, the total casualty count for the then-7-year-old Afghan war was 569. As of Sept. 30 of this year, it was 1,698.

            The 1,129 additional U.S. casualties in Afghanistan since Obama took office equals 66.5 percent of all U.S. casualties there for the duration of the war.
            I really do like the Hundreds of thousands of causality’s, Like Odummys Syria plan.
            He lied to Congress, they didn’t ask him about taking out OBL, they asked him if he was getting topped off by a subordinate, He lied and was impeached. cased closed..
            I keep proving you wrong and you just keep making shit up.
            I know I’m not gay, but you do have that liberal fascination with the asshole and man on man sex, but hey that’s your business, not mine.. Every thing you tried ( and very poorly I might add)to win the argument was a total failure, your getting upset, probably getting sphincter leak, headaches, heartburn.. Take a Tums.. and go kneel in the direction of the New Mecca, 1600 Penn.

            The problem with liberals is not that they’re ignorant; it’s just they know so much that isn’t true.

          • Russell Byrd

            Guess what? Bush was a liar. And why, after all this time would I want to start debunking your lies from scratch. You are nothing but a LIAR. Sit back and read your own drivel. Everything you come up with is Obuma this, Obuma that, Obuma, Obuma, OBUMA. All you Teabugger shits do is complain, complain, complain. You have the world by the balls and nothing is ever enough. Just bitch, bitch, bitch.

            The point of all this is: You cannot address the facts by spinning the facts. For instance, no one has been impeached. Pure LIE. You conveniently left out Iraq, altogether. You spin the war in Afghanistan as if it were Obama’s fault. It is not. That war is still owned by BushCheney. Obama just got stuck with straightening out the mess. As for gay, you brought that up. Kind of a Freudian slip on your part.

            Anyone that can imagine that the phrase “know so much that isn’t true,” makes coherent sense is more useles than a sack of BROKEN hammers.

          • Jim Quinn

            I never praised Cheney. dumb fuck.

            Go suck a Koch, dumb fuck. Cheney is part of your legend and lore. He is a hero to you stupid shits. You drop a whole phone book worth of names and TOTALLY OFF-TOPIC to boot. But no-one is supposed to have the right to respond. Stick your stupid shit up your ass, you worthless waste of skin.

          • Jim Quinn

            Off topic, your butt buddy, dick Hastings , brought up all the hate and vitriol about two right wingers, this is the topic you brain dead piece of shit. , there you go with the stuff up your ass again. must be your liberal wishing well….When did I say no one has the right to respond to something I responded to? That’s the point of the board you dumb fuck. I look forward to the response.I would be more than happy to let you know where I live. It’s in Liberal land, South Side of Chicago, come visit sometime, I’ll message you my address. you pussy fuck.

          • Russell Byrd

            This conversation has nothing to do with Mr. Hastings, though he is a very astute and reasonable poster. This has to do with your off-topic disruptions of the First Amendment rights of others. Your favorite “tools” are lies and spin. Or are you stooopid enough to think Rush is telling you the truth. I cannot believe anyone is that much of an idiot.

            You are definitely not gay. At least not openly, but you sure are Queer. As for Chicago, yeah, some of the worst racists in the country live there. They are just out numbered too badly to make a real impact. And if I visit you, it will not go down like your sick fantasies. Go hang out with your butt buddies.

          • idamag

            The Bible does not say, “Thou shalt not lie.” It says, “Thou shalt not bear false witness.” That means if you repeat someone else’s lie, you are guilty and the Bible says if you have broken one of the Ten Commandments, you have broken them all. So about the death threats to Bush: every time death threats are made against a president. the FBI gets involved and someone gets arrested. When that happens it hits the national news. Even though I am not a liberal, I did listen to Keith Olbermann. I liked “the worst person in the world” segment. Keith Olbermann did not call anyone the worst person who was not doing any harm nationally. I really doubt that he would attack a kid. Since that doesn’t make sense, I would say that is a lie. I don’t know who MIke Malloy is. The rest of your statements are so outrageous as to be not creditble. Remember you can find a blog that will reinforce anything you choose to believe.

  • Chuck Lantz

    As mentioned in the article, both those clowns will find other outlets, though they’ll make less money. Whether it’s a lot less or not depends on how the demographic and reach of their new stations pans-out. The ad agencies and individual sponsors spend their ad dollars based almost entirely on listener head-count. Only some is based on content.
    The bottom line being that Hannity and Limbaugh will always have a core audience and some core advertisers that will follow them, to smaller and smaller outlets, until they finally fizzle-out. This has happened to each and every right-wing radio nut since radio was invented.
    So, let’s sit back and enjoy the smoke and flames as these two jerks, and their colleagues, slowly fade into oblivion, until all they have left is the public appearance circuit and a Wiki page.

    • Dominick Vila

      The fact that some businesses and individuals still fund and support people like these two clowns is a sad commentary on our intellectual acumen and ability to think logically.

      • MPizana

        Kind of curious, but who do you think funded Americans for Prosperity where the terms of socialism, and communism began? Research, just research. Look up those that you idolize, look up the stations to which they belong and take note that the left leaning media is close to 50% owned by Rupert Murdoch. Where did I get this information? By looking up NewsCorp and it’s holdings and then looking up it’s board of directors. It’s out there. When someone says don’t worry we’ll digest the information and give it to you straight, begin worrying. Please do some research.

        • wbtsguy

          Apparently you haven’t done much independent research, yourself. You’ve lost all credibility. Murdoch’s money isn’t the driving force behind Americans for Prosperity.
          Do more research.

          • MPizana

            You are correct in that I should have separated my thoughts better. Murdoch is not the driving force behind Americans for Prosperity. That honor belongs to the Koch brothers.

        Speculation about possible replacements at WABC for Limbaugh’s noon-3 p.m. show and Hannity’s 3-6 p.m. show has focused on Mike Huckabee and WABC evening hosts Mark Levin and Michael Savage, who signed with Cumulus last year.

        Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/rush-hannity-leaving-cumulus-wor-article-1.1411314#ixzz2aYKQTkGJ, Yea I think Michael Savage will have the liberal crybabies wetting their diapers..

        • RobertCHastings

          Whoever replaces Hannity and Limbaugh is really irrelevant, for they will maintain the same audiences with the same agenda with the same biases. For people who cannot see any need to treat all people equally and as loving and charitable people, it really doesn’t matter to whom they listen for bolstering.

            Hi Greyparrot! I agree once Citizens United made it possible for billionaires to seed PACS, it was not a good day for any of us, right of left leaning. But if I may, I would ask you to research who literally owns the media. You will realize that our media is controlled by a handful of corporations. And as any business professor will tell you, the business of for-profit businesses is to make profit and maximize the stakeholders investment. Personally, I would love when right and left leaning media close their doors. Even though I’m not old enough, I long for the days of Edward R Murrow where truth and integrity meant everything.

          • Jim Quinn

            You talk about who owns the media, yet you fail to mention George Soros,,, why is that?

            Media Matters for America (MMFA) was created in spring 2004 in time for the presidential election campaign. Funded by an estimated $2 million in contributions, the group promotes itself as an online watchdog protecting the public from the deceptions and errors of the mass media that has been bullied or blinded by conservatives.

            In fact, MMFA is a cog in the growing machine of “progressive” activist and advocacy non-profits, including the online radical agitators at MoveOn.org, the liberal policy wonks at the Center for American Progress and the Democratic get-out-the-vote forces at America Coming Together. These groups were obsessed with defeating President George W. Bush in the 2004 election. Having failed, they have grown increasingly angry and determined.

            MMFA has a staff of 59 and is headquartered at 1625 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. in Washington, D.C. MMFA employees have at various times worked for Al Gore, John Edwards, Barney Frank, Wesley Clark, the National Organization for Women (NOW), the Center for American Progress, Greenpeace, the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (recently rechristened the American Association for Justice) and the Alliance for Justice.

            Led by a Confessed Liar

            MMFA is the creation of David Brock, a self-described “hit man” and self-confessed liar and gossip peddler. Brock’s own past casts a shadow over his current self-proclaimed dedication to truth-telling. At one time or another, Brock has viciously attacked the Clintons and the Bushes, Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas, Rush Limbaugh and National Public Radio, the New York Timesand the Wall Street Journal. Each time he recants a prior assault, he lunges out at a new political enemy.

          • MPizana

            So what is your point? Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is a conservative think-tank established in Washington, D.C. in 2003 to replace the Citizens for a Sound Economy. AFP is the sister organization to FreedomWorks, an organization that formed in 2004 when Citizens for a Sound Economy merged with the think tank Empower America. Both the Citizens for a Sound Economy and Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation were created by the Koch brothers.

            In any case, are you arguing that it is better that people not do their own research and to let others put out sound bites and just accept those at face value?

            First, your assuming. Do I go to church? No. Do I believe in God? I believe in a God, With that being said your an asshole. WWJD? He would teach a man to fish…you might not understand that…

          • MPizana

            Jesus didn’t teach the apostles to become better fishermen. He taught them to become fishers of men. In his sermon on the Mount he did not want everyone to fend for themselves to gather food, instead he performed a miracle and provided food for everyone. By your standards, you would vilify Him today and persecute Him calling Him a Socialist and Communist and drown out his teachings about caring for your fellow human beings.

          • Jim Quinn

            Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life, you annoy me.. learn to read ..I said I believe In a god. might not be your god. Conservatives have done more to help the poor, than any liberal on earth. How much and what did you do to help the down-trodden, Donate to charity, Habitat for Humanity, Buy a homeless man a cup of coffee..etc,etc,. Voting liberal ,doesn’t count…

          • Peoples425

            While I have respected most of the intellectual acumen of this thread, you have literally fallen off the map with that comment.
            Statistics and history have shown that conservatives have done little if any to affect much difference with poverty other than to ignore it.
            Most, if not all, capitalist cultures have disseminated into a culture of “haves and have-not’s” with no feasible manner of traversing the chasm between the two. This being the case, it is hard to comprehend such an idea as conservatives (especially those of present mentalities) having helped anyone other than themselves.

          • idamag

            I can just see how they would treat Jesus if he came to earth today.

          • MPizana

            Matthew 19 Now 20 someone came up to him and said, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to gain eternal life?” 19:17 He said to him, “Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” 19:18 “Which ones?” he asked. Jesus replied, “Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19:19 honor your father and mother, 21 and love your neighbor as yourself.” 22 19:20 The young man said to him, “I have wholeheartedly obeyed 23 all these laws. 24 What do I still lack?” 19:21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go sell your possessions and give the money 25 to the poor, and you will have treasure 26 in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 19:22 But when the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he was very rich. 27

            Matthew 6:24 24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his span of life? 28 And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin; 29 yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O men of little faith? 31 Therefore do not be anxious, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or `What shall we wear?’ 32 For the Gentiles seek all these things; and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well. 34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day’s own trouble be sufficient for the day.

    I do not listen to Hannity or Limbaugh (for more than a few minutes at a time until I get angry), but I would not count them off. There are hordes of people that agree with them and probably there will be more before Obama finish his term.

    • hydrangea1

      Rush knows leftists better than they know themselves. Obama hates him because Rush informs the American people as to the danger Obama and his ilk represents to us.

      • MPizana

        Greyparrot, please believe in half of what you seen and none of what you hear. Verify it for yourself. My father in law asked me if I had heard of a crazy amendment that was being proposed based on an email he had received. My first question was, do you know if the amendment is real and have you read it for yourself. He indicated he had not, but would do so. I haven’t heard about it since so I don’t know whether he did or not. But, my point is, don’t take things at face value. Question, question, question and look up the answer yourself. Don’t let it be spoon-fed to you. Rush, Hannity, etc. are entertainers. They get paid to entertain.

  • tax payer

    So, you would prefer a show by Racists Jacksun and Sharptun. I know I wouldn’t because we don’t want them telling us what to do and when to do it.

    • omgamike

      I would much prefer their opinions than I do the rants and ravings of obscene people like Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck and the like.

      • hydrangea1

        I’d be ashamed to admit it.

        • idamag

          Because some people fill their heads with inane television shows that reinforce their preconceived notions, to them stupidity has become a virtue. If they are hateful people, they are drawn to hate shows. The sad thing is that these people are not smart enough to have shame.

    • Cynthia Holck Simpson

      tax payer, the gentlemen whose names you can’t spell are not racists. They are sort of celebrity spokespeople for an interest group. People in that interest group, blacks mostly, may or may not appreciate their efforts. The general public may or may not appreciate their efforts. But they aren’t spending all their time, day in and day out, teaching anybody to hate anybody else. And that’s the plain truth.

      • tax payer

        I misspelled their name because I don’t care to give them Publicity. The only people that care for them are their followers that Protest, when they are ordered to Protest by them. They don’t care what happens to Anglos and Hispanics or other Races. I always try to not state the real names of people that are there for their people and not for everyone.

        • RobertCHastings

          Then why not deliberately misspell Limbaugh and Hannity. Or do you like their brand of hatred better?

    • InsideEye

      They will be picked up by the other the number one syndicate and the
      Radio stations will gladly want them to enhance their audience. Why are there not any viable alternatives that can compete? There are 47% of Americans still almost equally divided that listen plus swing independents. The so called right is not diminishing its numbers in any way. These people are not lemmings as neither are the left., one group is self reliant and the other is not.

    • RobertCHastings

      But you don’t mind kowtowing to Limbaugh and Hannity? They don’t, in case you haven’t noticed, exactly ask for their listeners to share their opinions, and when they do, they are generally ridiculed to abased. Your objection to receiving the same kind of consideration from two black preachers is quite telling.

      • tax payer

        For the record I don’t even listen to their show, but only read about negatives things always thrown at us about those two. Now, Jackson and Sharpton, ( spelled their names correctly ) I don’t care for because they are always fighting for their own Race and care less about all the other Races in this country.

        • RobertCHastings

          And why do you think they fight for their race? I know it is asking a lot, but just consider why two prominent black ministers would fight for the rights of blacks in America.

          • rulierose

            because that’s the only way they know how to make money.

          • MPizana

            Until you walk in their shoes, I would be careful about the money comment. If you remember, Jesse Jackson was there when MLK was assassinated.

          • idamag

            Both Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton lived through the Jim Crow area. The marched and took beatings in order for the Black People to vote. This is why they speak up when they see people trying to return us to those days. I have never once heard them spew hate. If the right-wing nuts refer the president as Obumma or some other crude low intelligent slur, they consider that informative, but if a Democrat tells a Republican that his shoe is untied, that is hate.

        • idamag

          list your sources, liar.

          • idamag

            I took debate in high school. We had to name our sources when we made a statement. I am a technical writer. A technical writer can only use facts, not opinion. In a court of law you might also be required to name your sources. You do that when you make the statement. You don’t hide behind your rhetoric and then tell the reader to prove you are wrong.

      • tax payer

        I don’t consider Jackson and Sharpton ( Preachers ) because of the Hate they preach to their followers.

        • RobertCHastings

          You don’t like them because they are black and because the do not kowtow to the white power structure. Neither one of them has preached hatred, although I can readily understand how they could.

          • rulierose

            that’s right, Robert! you’ve discovered our secret. oh no!

            we don’t like Sharpton and Jackson because they’re black.

            but…how do you explain why we like Herman Cain and Dr. Ben Carson and Condi Rice and Thomas Sowell and Allen West and Lee Elder? they’re black too. is it all a trick to confuse you libs?

          • RobertCHastings

            Those that you named are by their actions and their words obvious “Uncle Tom” blacks, who, by definition, see themselves as middle class whites and have tried to leave their black heritage behind them while abandoning their roots and the reality of being black in America.

        • idamag

          liar. I have listened to your jerkoffs, Hannity and Limbaugh, but because I am not biased, I have also listened to Sharpton and Jackson. They have never spewed hate, but you have.

  • Vazir Mukhtar

    Limbaugh and Hannity may be dropped, but I’ll bet that if Cumulus Media can turn a dollar with conservative talk-radio hosts, it’ll pick up others. Perhaps L and H’s successors will have bigger brains and smaller mouths.

  • Kurt CPI

    It’s hard to believe that advertisers would sponsor Jerry Springer but pass on Limbaugh or any other controversial political radio show. Right-wingers buy mostly the same stuff as left-wingers (they just put different slogans on their T-shirts), and there would have to be a serious threat of boycott before most marketing strategists would drop a significant base of potential customers. I suspect both Hannity and Limbaugh have a self-assessment of their value that matches their egos, and it’s just too much to justify in the marketplace. Advertisers would have to pay more than they currently are for the same 30 second spot and are unwilling to do that. Supply and demand at its finest.

  • WriterGuy10

    Don’t get too excited. This may not be what National Memo (and others in the progressive community) think it is.

    It doesn’t matter what the SECOND largest broadcasting group does as long as Clear Channel owns a virtual lock on the US radio industry. Clear Channel (which, not coincidentally, syndicates these shows) will simply move them onto a Clear Channel stations in the markets where Cumulus broadcasts them now. That way, there’s no reason to share profits.

    Clear Channel raised the syndication price above Cumulus’ level to pay. But it really doesn’t matter what Clear Channel charges its own stations, since it all works out in the end. Aren’t monopolies wonderful?

    • Cynthia Holck Simpson

      I know it’s probably too early to cheer. Let’s just hope the market and interest is shrinking. I remember when my Dad told me to ignore someone who was bullying me in school. Yhe bully only did it to get attention from his “friends.” When I quit paying attention, his friends got bored with the whole thing and moved on. I am hoping that some of their listeners will get bored too and move on. Particularly when they realize that the message just ain’t panning out. Where’s ole Sarah Palin these days?

I think his brain has changed and I believe that all the hate and pessimism he wallows in daily is shortening his life.

  • JulieZ77

    I remember a time when extremists like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity had me fooled into thinking that they were right about what they say, and now, I really resent them for the anger that they made me feel toward all the wrong people concerning my difficulties that their kind caused with our economy, the lack opportunity, and the fleecing of our American jobs that were transferred to other countries. These two are not good for the American economy. They think that a top down economy with unfair labor competition is how this country is supposed to work, but that is the absolute opposite of the truth. They became rich by taking advantage of the ignorant and the uneducated by filling their minds full of hate and lies, and it’s far past time that we rid ourselves of their evil propaganda.

    • disqus_LcxpBv2uzz

      These two, and others like them, are in show business. They’ve found a winning formula because a number of people buy their “product”. As long as they can sell their brand, sponsors will pay. The Law of Diminishing Returns will eventually lead people to something different, and the principal of “adapt or die” will lead these two into obsolescence. They, and their product, will eventually disappear.

      • rulierose

        the MSNBC crew, OTOH, are not in show business. they truly believe everything they say, and they are wonderful.

        • jmsramsey

          Yup and any station that would give Al Sharpton a time slot is far worse than anything that Rush and Hannity say. How can anyone believe anything the Rev. Al says, he is the biggest joke and worse, instigator on the planet.

      If Lefty radio and TV worked, MSNBC would get more then 10 viewers LOL!! Fox destroys all network news..FACT!! If you say other wise, your in Liberal denial!

      • Manny Campos

        Sensible viewers watch all channels. Right wing nuts only watch Fox News. Result, Fox gets more viewers than any single channel.

      • Russell Byrd

        Just because some hateful idiot tells me I am in denial, will not make it so. I listen to different news sources because I want to be informed and able to make an informed decision. You listen to Faux because they tell you all your warped, pre-conceived notions are right after all.

      • Larry Jones

        Actually, the reason FOX news gets more viewers than other news sources is because it is the older people who watch news on TV. If you take FOX news and compare it all news sources such as the internet, which younger people use to get news, you will find FOX fails far behind. The audience for FOX news is the older group that is dying out and does not have a very long future. I say in about 20 or 30 years FOX news will be something that was in the past, and not real relevant to the future of news broadcast.

        • idamag

          I hope you are right. As someone said, earlier on this board, fox news is destroying all other stations. Sadly, that might be their goal as Rupert Murdoch is buying up as much media as he can.

          • Larry Jones

            The only thing I can say is have hope. No matter how wealthy Rupert Murdoch is even he cannot buy up the whole internet. The internet will put Fox News and other propaganda stations out of business, because the younger people are turning away from TV more and more.

        • highpckts

          Wait a minute! I’m one of those “older” people and I want nothijng to do with these insane clowns!! The hate these people spew is the main reason there is so much division in politics!

      • highpckts

        If they do and that is a big if, it’s because the mentality of people watching or listening to FOX is that of a 5 yr old! Easily entertained and they don’t question anything! It’s not the Liberals in denial! It’s all the brain dead followers of these two that are, if they can think that far!

    I see it as only appropriate that the hatred emanating from the camps of ‘Limbaugh and Hannity’ ultimately resulted in their censure. These are two very disturbed individuals wholly lacking in journalistic integrity and entirely without a social conscience. Perhaps most ironic is the undeniable fact it took the natural laws of capitalism to shut down these ‘free market guardians’. Talk about poetic justice…

  • Larry Jones

    Abraham Lincoln once said, “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.” Seems like Lincoln’s quote is coming true regarding Lush Lamebrain, and Shame Insanity.

  • Kathy Eldridge

  • flipped54

    Now maybe we can get back to sensible and constructive talk radio….Limbaugh and Hannity are a drag to the progression of the USA. They have not done one thing to move this country forward and their demise is their own creation. No one but those who promote ill will and who wish other Americans to fail will continue to follow these two pessimists, and I’m being nice, to their end. Good does overcome evil…..but it takes a lot of time for the truth to come full circle.

    • rulierose

      “Now maybe we can get back to sensible and constructive talk radio”

      Like Air America? Randi Rhodes? Mike Malloy? that kind of sensible, constructive talk? you people are such hypocrites.

      • flipped54

        Sorry, I don’t listen to any of those which hardly makes me a hypocrite. I merely want to have a country where all Americans are equal and as of now that is not the case. Talk radio or any other form of communication that promotes inequality, whether that be social, economic or gender, does not move America forward and forward is the direction America needs to go to. I for one do not promote the sequester and then turn around and rake in government subsidies.

  • Lovefacts

    While both these characters have a large core audience and may get replacement stations, the question is will they find the necessary advertisers? Their loss of advertisers isn’t personal or do to political differences. It’s those who are angered by Rush and Hannity’s hate outnumber his core audience and that’s bad business.

    • steve tate

      You have never listened to Rush, you have only ever heard what the cuts that your handlers want you to hear.

    • steve tate

      Edna, admit it, the only thing that you know about Rush and Hannity is what somebody else told you what to think. I KNOW you have never read any of his many brilliant works,i.e.”The Way Things Ought To Be”. I Dare you.

  • RobertCHastings

    I see no hate from either of them…strong opinions, yes – but please tell me where you see “hate”.

    • Billy Gardener

      ….and even if you do consider them “haters” (which is a relative term, you must admit)…hate is not against the law. I listen to them as I do the ones who talk on MSNBC. I agree and disagree with both sides on many issues. Anyone who believes either side should be “silenced” is the true hater. We still have the freedom to change the channel or not.

      • rulierose

        nice try, Billy, but these people couldn’t even tell you why they call Rush and Hannity haters: they’ve never heard them. all they know is what MSNBC tells them, and we know how MSNBC edits tape to conform to their desired narrative.

        and these people don’t want you to be able to “change the channel” from Fox; they want Fox not to be an option. the Lefties would’ve made great Soviets.

        • MPizana

          Actually RulieRose, personally I would like Fox and MSNBC to take responsibility for their actions. News and opinion need to be stated as such. An initial study by the University of Maryland and later confirmed by Fairleigh Dickenson University found that both Fox and MSNBC viewers were the least informed than those who listened to NPR (scored the hightest) or those who didn’t listen to news at all. And as far as throwing terms around like lefties and comparisons to the Communist Soviet Union, I ask that you please read about the Communist Soviet Union and it’s Gulags before you make that comparison. If you can cite sources on how they are the same and show that you have truly thought about the issue and not regurgitated the opinions of others, your arguments would go a lot further.

    • A_Schick
      • Billy Gardener

        Not all of those are proven true and some of them were made in jest and some of them – regardless of how it offends anyone – are just true. Just because he says what he says is no reason to “silence” him. You don’t like listening to his show? Turn the dial.

But, it seems, that is alright with you. Sorry, Rush is worst than any words I might describe him to be. He is a drug addict, a drug smuggler, Viagra smuggler, and worst and impotent.

      Two typos in just seven words! Congrats Gary A by identifying yourself as a low information Obama supported. It’s “their” not there, “too” not “to”.

      • Gary A

        The spelling is correct. Not so the usage. If ego tripping floats your boat so be it.
        Did you have any useful comment relevant to the article?

  • rulierose

    this is my favorite comment stream all week. idiotic people who only read the headline are breaking out the champagne because “Rush and Hannity are leaving!” no, low-info voters, they are not leaving. they are going to a competitor radio network, where they will doubtless be making piles more money.

    meanwhile, you guys sit in your mom’s basement and call him names.

    Rush has millions of listeners because he entertainingly presents the non-politically-correct truth. he’ll continue to have millions of listeners despite the 12% of you who think Barack Obama is the smartest president we’ve ever had.

    • MPizana

      With all due respect RulieRose, do you really want to compare President Obama’s educational successful vs. Rush?

      • Glen Hull

        What do you say we compare the bank accounts of Limbaugh and Obama.

        • idamag

          And this is the mark of a good person – his bank account?

    • Ed

      How true, rulierose !
      Barack Obama is considered “the smartest president we’ve ever had” by the DUMBEST idiots we’ve ever had … LOL !!!

  • frankspeakloud

    It’s about freakin’ time! This two seditionist anti-American sh**-stirring traitors need to be tarred and feathered.

  • magadog

    I still have no idea who listens to the radio during the day? What job don’t you have that affords you this luxury? Get a job or a life. And quit listening to used care salesmen on the radio, that is so sad.

  • snowyphile

    Good move.

  • jljbam

    Another miss leading article. End of right-wing radio? If Rush and Hannity go, they will be replaced by.. Mark Levine and Savage, two other right-wingers. Nice try liberal media!

  • jljbam

    To be replaced by two more Right-wingers in Savage and Levine! To more hard line right-wingers!! Wrong about the end of right radio!!

    • Trudge1

      Mark Levin or Rush Limbaugh, either way it will be great listening.

  • Streetgypsy

    Hannity and Limbaugh represent the “extremes” of the right wing. They are “openly racist” and could care less about who knows it. They are so confident because they have
    a huge “racist” following. No one is fooled about the number of ordinary people who are racist at heart. They hide and harbor thier racist fellings against Africa-American’s and other minorities. The truth of the matter is that racism is becoming less-and-less popular.
    every day racists cannot be as open about their racism as Hannity and Limbaugh.

    • rickg62

      Are you really this stupid? Again, like most liberals you’re good at making blanket charges but how about some actual examples of the supposed racism. Is it, as I assume, that they are against Obama’s policies so that makes them automatic racists? Or maybe that they are tired of the actual race hustlers like Sharpton and Jackson?

    • Trudge1

      Please, he has more Black people on his show than most shows put together.
      You are uninformed.

    • Trudge1

      Limbaugh’s screen caller/ right hand man/”officially black enough” and substitute speaker when he is gone without a guest speaker is Bo Snerdley, a black man.
      Hannity has two black people that call him the last 30 minutes of his show all the time. Elma and A.J.
      You don’t know what you are talking about.

  • Bubba

    Hitler had a good run as well.

  • Lrgetrout10

    It has long been past due for these asshats to get off the stage.

    Lush Rimjob is the reason I turn off the radio at 9am every weekday.

  • montanabill

    Like the empty headed chatter that occurred when a few sponsors dropped Rush and the libs thought their nemesis was going down, this too, will wind up disappointing them. Broadcasting is about profits. Big audiences bring profits. There will be no shortage of outlets seeing a whole new opportunity to air Rush and Hannity. Let’s see if a newly mild mannered Savage can compete head-on with Rush. Any bets?

    • Trudge1

      Savage’s audience are the ‘un-winders’. He wouldn’t be able to compete in the middle of the day talking about meatballs, Teddy and ‘dead man’s pants’. I don’t think he’d want to anyway.

    • ObozoMustGo

      Looks like Cumulus has a death wish. Any stations in my city that have given up Rush seem to drift off into anonymity and eventually end up being also ran music stations with crappy formats. Over the 20 years I have lived here, the number of stations that I have seen follow that path is 4 or 5.

      Have a nice day!

    Shame on you.

    I think limpballs is more fitting than Limbaugh.

    Looks like the bigot movement is dying out. Time to find some new heroes conservatives.

  • 4sanity4all

    Limbaugh and Hannity take a statement, pull it out of context, add imaginary elements to it, and twist the meaning. They attribute incorrect motives to people, trying to get their listeners to hate ‘them’. They construct imaginary scenes of disaster brewing, to inflame the passions of an undiscerning audience. Their stock in trade is catchy sound bytes that are easy to remember but impossible to pin down, because they never mean what you think they mean. They manipulate their listeners, and manage to make them feel good about hating our president. They never reveal their true motives or intentions. And they always assert that they are loyal Americans, but the ‘opposition’ is trying to ruin the country. They label people with terms that are evocative, but untrue. Their audience has an idea that these labels represent bad things, but they couldn’t define the terms if you tried to pin them down. The hate and misunderstanding that Limbaugh, Hannity, and their type have promoted has fractured the unity that used to exist in this country. People used to know how to disagree, while still according respect to those with whom they disagreed. These men are not trying to enlighten their audience, they are instead spreading fear and hate.

    • Trudge1

      Is that the reason he can emphatically say “I told you so.”

  • Lori Ann Jones

    Well, lets make a list of ALL of the people on TV and radio who we don’t like or agree with ..then we will cancel or not let them express their opinions….you know a lot of people listen to and agree with these two guys….however, they are targeted because they are not giving Obummer a pass…….so lets suppress anyone who has different opinions …….well only if they have a different one than you…….FREEDOM OF SPEECH…..even for slime balls like Bill Maher, David Letterman..calls Palins girls horrible names…while he is being preverted behind the scenes…..Chris Matthews…also calls women horrible names that he disagrees with…………and on and on……wake up, you will be losing your rights and freedoms too…….that is what our current adminstration is working hard on doing….so enjoy dumping on others rights…….beware….yours will be next.

  • tcp53

    Rush and Hannity already have an alternative syndicator. There’s a reason that they are the #1 and #2 radio shows IN AMERICA. They will sign for either more money or a percentage with the new syndicator…..

  • Trudge1

    The actual transmitting radio stations themselves will just drop Cumulus and pick up WOR or whatever Rush will go to. He’s not going anywhere until everybody agrees with him.

  • Streetgypsy

    OK, rickg62 or Trickg62, whatever your name is. You are a typical racist trying to convince Black people that there is no white racism toward minorities in America. That kind of reasoning does not fly. Who should I believe—-you or my lying eyes, ears and first-hand experience?? I think you are the one who is stupid. We have all of these discrimination laws in America because of people like you. You created those laws, You created the NAACP. YOU created Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. YOU created the Civil Rights Movement. YOU created Emmit Till, YOU created Rosa Parks. YOU created Martin Luther King Jr, YOU created the Black Panthers, YOU created Louis Farakhan,
    YOUc reated racial hatred in America!!

  • Bill

    And the pendulum swings back….when the market can no longer support the extremes, it’s a sign the country had moved to the center.

    if you’re lucky enough to be young, you may see it swing further left, then back to the center…and then to the right.

    • 1LonesomeDove1

      We see that with PBS. The market won’t support it so the government does it with our tax money.

      But hey! They still remain left. How is that?

      • Bill

        Not to mention those gay puppets.

        • 1LonesomeDove1

          Once again, Bill…..when you have these discussions in your head, you can’t just speak out where you left off.

          • Bill

            Why not?

      • w8n4snow

        Classic government efficiency: PBS can’t manage on the taxpayer money they already get, so they barrage people with their “fundraising” campaigns during every one of their programs.

  • enos33

    So two of the only people in the country to have an audience of conservative patriots are being smothered by political correctness, while Obama and his socialist cohorts drag the USA into the same ditch that has stripped Europe of its pride. This thread is full of ‘gimme a handout’ losers.

  • Ben Amillo

    What a bunch of haters!
    I guess free speech is the next target you rabid peeps want to abolish.
    I have listened to them both from time to time and never heard anything remotely resembling the bile you all are puking up. Now I don’t agree with some of their talking points… But I can say that of the New progressive Democrat talking points also.

    I guess it’s true… You all can’t argue the facts, so you attack the person. Your all as brain dead as the right wingers.
    Horrible, hateful people. How can anyone take you seriously?

    I’ve come to the conclusion that your all nuts.

  • Seems the network radio stations can’t make any money with the advertisers on the Lush Limpdick show. Bail bonders & disability ambulence chasers aren’t exactly making the networks numbers go off the charts.
    But then again look at who listens to these hate radio idiots, the very haters themselves.

  • tec

    The people on the far right and the far left hate each other because the know that they are looking in the mirror…. at themselves !!!!

  • DAK27

    I can only hope and pray that Rush, Hannity, Huckabee and all the otehr hate-mongers are barred from ever being on the radio again. Then take them off the TV.

    • YouHateMe

      Yep. Liberals can’t make it in any market of size because of their content, so ban the opposition voices instead? Yep. Such tolerance from the psychotic lefties. You stinking filth.

      • w8n4snow

        Yes, Ed Shultz is such a loving, tolerant, kind individual (not). The hypocrisy and hate from the liberals is beyond disgusting.

        • YouHateMe

          Glaring to us, simply invisible to them. I don’t linger at sites like these too long….lol!

    • w8n4snow

      The only hate-mongers that have been taken off TV and radio are from MSNBC.

  • Bill Huff

    Their departure can’t happen fast enough!

  • I guess the advertisers have dropped to the level of Bail Bondsmen & used car dealers for the credit poor.
    THAT is the demographic that is attracted to these two Bozos (sorry Bozo).
