    protests at universities to get them out of RW denial radio would do?

    This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.

      centered environomental groups?  I'm too out of touch with college students myself to know where this idea might find a receptive audience.  THough with the anger young women were feeling at Limbaugh earlier this year, it might be a good time to attack him on another issu (GW denial).  Or... I wonder if the people working on getting sponsors to drop him would be interested in expanding that to include universities dropping sports broadcsts from his stations?

        environmental, social justice, diversity, LGBT, etc. all of them would benefit from getting their universities out of RW radio.

        most of their objectives and they themselves are regularly attacked from those stations in general ways, and more specifically when they make progress and get the attention of local or national think tanks that feed the local talkers.

        the current boycotts are directly related to the fluke incident so they're geared that way toward hate/misogyny. in my experience the the general attitude among liberals is to ignore everything else that talk radio does. that's the problem.

        a lot of this would be easier if there was a written record that could be searched - so liberals could read it. new transcription software could make that automatic and it should be a given task for every state Dem party office to be monitoring the main local talkers, since they basically do what think tanks and state GOP and Chamber of Commerce wants. maybe some minor scrambling would allow the transcripts to be offered to a wider audience without copyright probs.

        while universities might be defensive about not wanting to seem political (while supporting RW radio!) about it, the GW denial they support through RW radio should be indefensible.
