    dragging us with them as long as they can maintain their talk radio monopoly.

     he IS the face of the GOP because he is
    point man for their most important media weapon against democracy and ignoring it the last 25 years is the main reason we're so fucked. the talk radio monopoly has been and will continue to minimize the work of citizen activists and their donations because it is loud and unchallenged.

    the 'debt crisis' and benghazi are recent egs of why talk radio must not be ignored. continued global warming denial from those 1000+ radio stations makes it imperative for the left to challenge it. we don't have the time to keep ignoring it.

    the talk radio monopoly not only makes hate, racism, and ignorance acceptable, it is their main tool sued to create the alternate reality they depend on to obstruct ANYTHING we want.

    if progressives and dems get close to making progress on any major issue the RW  think tanks create PR campaigns and made-to-order constituencies to counter those popular reform efforts and then they launder them through their blowhards until they create enough 'popular' idiot consensus/reality to enable and intimidate politicians and media.  it makes rational fact-based discussion on a national scale impossible. they are successful in obstructing and short circuiting democracy because liberals and thinking americans give those radio stations/soapboxes and their professional liars a free speech free ride.

    it is the loudest and most successful messaging tool in history because the coordinated lying is ignored and unchallenged by the left. in most states RW radio dominates politics and the left doesn't even know what they're saying or how often, so we regularly end up playing catch up.

    limbaugh is the point man for that effort and enjoys a the protection of a monopoly- the left needs to do whatever it can to expose the RW blowhards and their lies, link them to the GOP, and end the monopoly that allows them to sell their lies.

    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.
