  •  that's fantastic to hear. if more schools did that (8+ / 0-)

    i think he'd soon be relegated to a few stations in alabama and mississippi, because 28% of his stations are supported with associations like that from our universities. there are also may be many high schools that do the same. it might be harder in southern states but there are a lot of blue areas out there that are dominated by his stations. and when teachers and students realize how often they get slammed by them, how much influence they have in local politics relative to funding and defunding and privatization it should be a no brainer.

    when fees at colleges go up instead of down its about republican/teabagger policies and the loudest advocates for that crap in our communities are the RW radio stations.

    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.

    •  Certinot, your personal tag helped inspire (5+ / 0-)

      Your personal tag, "This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh..." caught my attention and that of some in StopRush, and we decided to make sponsoring schools part of the theme in last week's diary. Thank you.

      •  i really think there are a lot of (0+ / 0-)

        possibilities there.

        i'll bet those school endorsements bring a lot of advertisers that may soon get the message. and i think after a few schools get it done others will be compelled to follow- they really don't have an excuse.

        the school wouldn't even have to break a contract- i think the just the declaration that they won't renew and are looking for alternatives will send the advertisers and station a message they can't ignore.

        i've talked to student group activists that would seem to have an interest but it doesn't seem to register- talk radio is so yesterday- while it undermines everything they do.

        when my hi speed connection gets more consistent i may try a more comprehensive list with other RW talkers but the other one gave me a case of carpel tunnel so i'm not sure.

        you folks are doing great work, thanks.
