    ...a diary about StopRush, rather than just about Rush. I think it would be insightful.

    I'll just offer this teaser: StopRush is a prototype database that harnesses the successful activist philosophy and tactics pioneered by Spocko a few years ago. The idea is, simply, persuading advertisers that support a shock jock that their association with hate radio is bad for their brand name.

    But here's a very important consideration: StopRush is a prototype concept that may in the future be turned toward ALEC, the Koch Brothers, or other right wing bad actors. I think the StopRush project is well worth your time investment and support.

    •  it should be bad for a university's brand name too (0+ / 0-)

      to be endorsing those stations and their main 'man'.

      great work. i don't think there's better time spent by activists than going after the one's who have been so effective shouting over and short-circuiting democracy and the time and donations volunteered toward exercising it.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and partisan lying by broadcasting sports on Limbaugh radio stations.

      it should be pointed out that these strategies are merely the free market at work; it is legal and effective.

      The reality that their Big Boy Billionaires CAN be confronted and marginalized by the Little People drives them crazy.
