    It is more complex than that, and it does have talkers worried.

    Most of the activity involves asking the company whether or not speech reflects their brand intent.

    Most talkers have nothing to worry about.  Limbaugh has a lot to worry about.

    There has been fallout, with some advertizers leaving the medium entirely.  Limbaugh supports a lot of other talkers too, just due to the draw.

    Ed and others have their ratings by talking up things people are about.  

    Limbaugh has his ratings selling hate like a cheap whore sells sex, and the industry refuses to deal with that, claiming first amendment.

    There is no first amendment clause for AD supported speech.

    There should be no tolerance for the kind of hate Limbaugh and others put out there either.

    Some days I shake my head in wonder.  The Brits allow profanity, but hold the line on hate solid.  We have to keep it clean, fining six figures for profanity, even unintended, yet hate rules the dial.

    Limbaugh exists because 23 percent of us are racists, bigots and theocrats.  They need validation to appear normal, as in "holds valid point of view", not bat shit nuts.  That is where Limbaugh gets the money, and Schultz does not.

      they are untrained to do anything else. Little problem with "cheap whore." They are human beings and have to eat too and many of them have kids.
