    most of his regular audience aren't going to back off because of his fluke attack unless they might be new listeners getting a sudden dose of his real character. anyone familiar with him would know that was normal and regular.

    i'd say his critical audience, the one that really counts, are people who don't stream and get it in the car or at work on good old fashioned free AM.

    shaming the advertisers to find alternatives is causing the measurable damage and that's why those efforts are so effective and essential.

    i'm disappointed though, as a long term observer, that it took so long and that the focus for the progressive community is almost exclusively on the sexism and bigotry as opposed to the use of the talk radio monopoly for coordinated disinformation campaigns that are still capable of distraction and obstruction and swiftboating on a national scale- the latest eg benghazi.

    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.
