Efforts to stop Limbaugh unsuccessful

Great story for all of you who hate Rush and were hoping Cumulus would drop him. Despite compliants by owners of Cumulus that Limbaugh comments were hurting the bottom lline, apparently they weren't hurting it much.
Cumulus will continue to pay Premiere (Clear Channel) for the rights to carry Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh has signed a new three-year deal with Cumulus, he revealed Friday.

The news confirmed recent reports last week that he would not be getting dropped by the radio network. The announcement came after weeks of speculation that Cumulus was prepared to walk away over the high cost of distributing his show.

"There will not be any changes," Limbaugh told listeners on Friday. The only exception is that he is leaving WABC in New York City for WOR.

He said that the negotiations wrapped up very recently, and insisted that the show was "never going to change." The tense talks lasted for weeks and Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey's criticism of the cost of Limbaugh's Sandra Fluke attacks spurred rumors about Limbaugh's fate after his contract expires at the end of the year.

The reports prompted Limbaugh to speak out on his show in July. "Nothing is going to change," he told his audience at the time. "You are going to 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."

Now Mrignorant will post a video or a cut and paste story about how Limbaugh audience has fallen off, but you can't ignore facts. Rush is making millions and just re-upped for three years with a company that was trying to convince people that he was bad for the company.. Hahahahahahahah

No votes yet

They are giving him more ratings by saying their crap. I know this because people who read it but maybe don't always listen to him will listen to see his response.

The left has a fascination with him because they've never been successful copying what he does.

That;s because nobody wants to hear a message that is repeated on every news outlet, 24-7. abc, nbc, cbs, msnbc, yada-yada-yada.

was saying, in effect, in previous weeks that speculation that he was going to be "dropped" was negotiation strategy - meaning on the part of Cumulus, I presume. He was careful how he worded it, but basically was saying, "I'll be around, don't worry about it."

Lefties always underestimate Limbaugh and the size of his audience. I don't agree with his slant on everything, but as a conservative, I try to listen to a portion of his program on days I can. Now the average Lucas County resident might ask why. That's because they are liberals and think that NO OTHER point of view other than liberal should be on the public airwaves. That's because in the 1960's and 1970's - television being relatively new back then - the ONLY viewpoint you heard on the public airwaves was liberal. When Limbaugh came along, it was almost instant and electric - people all over the country were saying "Yeah - that's what I thought all along." I mean liberals CANNOT STAND IT. They had the airwaves all to themselves, were busy little beavers corrupting whole generations of young people - and along comes this RADIO guy (of all things) who says "wait just a minute here..."

This link is about some of Lew Dickey Jr.'s comments (CEO of Cumulus). Which brought to mind that a Lew Dickey used to own the old WOHO radio staton locally. Rhetorical question, because I doubt if anyone actually knows, but is this the same Dickey family? Because if it is, then the apple falls not far from the tree.
(That's not intended as a compliment.)

Sean Hannity has recently "fired" Cumulus. Liberals have done a lot of wishful thinking about talk radio. Pooooor liberals.

ADMIN EDIT - inappropriate - picture removed

Conservatives love boys in bathroom stalls

Farmergal, do you and Limbaugh have matching Swatika tatoos?

do use spellcheck?

NO?

NO?

No Galt he's retarded. That's the phonetic way of spelling it the way he pronounces it.

"Mikey", author of filth pieces against Roland Hansen's wife and others. I repeat, you are a piece of human garbage.

How (and why) so-called "Mikey" hacks, lies, deceives and posts filth:

http://www.shoah.org.uk/2013/08/09/us-military-caught-manipulating-socia...

You couldn't let it be, could you, you piece of human garbage. I went through some archival stuff here, back to 2009 when it appears you started an online feud with the Hansons, for no apparent reason, including times you were warned by the admin concerning things you were posting, unsurprisingly similar in wording to the filth posted by all your fake personalities as well as, as so-called "mikey".

Anyone reading, be sure to examine the above link, because it basically outs "mikey's" ilk and multiple personalities. He is a dirty minded creep.

Quote from the above link:

"...even the New York Times has covered in an article entitled ‘The Real War on Reality‘, we are seeing just that. The New York Times report goes on to detail information uncovered from hacked data regarding the military operation to stage ‘grassroots’ responses and organizations in order to deceive via psyop. Professor of philosophy Peter Ludlow writes for the Times:

“The hack also revealed evidence that Team Themis was developing a “persona management” system — a program, developed at the specific request of the United States Air Force, that allowed one user to control multiple online identities (“sock puppets”) for commenting in social media spaces, thus giving the appearance of grass roots support. The contract was eventually awarded to another private intelligence firm.”
This cyber warfare is clearly not just in the capacity of ‘improving international reputation’ as military commanders are claiming on record (just like there is ‘no such thing’ as domestic spying and it’s only for terrorists). Instead, we’re talking about running a major network of computers that are constantly running code specifically written to post to social media and news comment pages. Something that was revealed all the way back in 2011 by RawStory and brushed off in the name of national security by the military."

Ahh FG. You truly are a conspiracy theorist.

Yes, I was put up to "Hacking" (I don't think you really understand that word) by the US military so I could harass you and Roland Hanson. It is why the DoD is so heavily funded, you (Judy) and Roland Hanson.

" back to 2009 when it appears you started an online feud with the Hansons, for no apparent reason" Yes, it's what I do. I feud with people for no apparent reason.

In reality, Roland was not a regular poster here. He took a feud he had with Fred from Facebook and other sites and brought them here. I took issue with Roland for those actions.

"including times you were warned by the admin concerning things you were posting," I cussed in a post. Chris Myers deleted it as is his right. I have no issue with it. This is Chris' site and he can run it as he wishes. We are his guests.

" all your fake personalities as well as, as so-called "mikey"." Just because you say I have fake personalities doesn't make it so. The last time you accused me of this I was arguing with the personality you accused me of also being. If anyone one here is inclined to argue with themselves FG, it is you.

Once again FG you post from an uncredible source. Here's a few other articles they have posted.
