    i don't think NC dems should waste too much more time figuring out why the NC GOP kicks dem ass.

    gerrymandering is the advantage they got from dems ignoring talk radio for 25 years.

    dems don't even know what's being said on them. 8 stations? i don't know which they are or how loud they are but you can be sure when those local blowhards scream and lie about dem candidates and issues they're working for the GOP and their think tanks. they're basically doing free advertising for the GOP with tarheels stickers on those megaphones and the NC dems have no idea what they're saying. and UNC students are going to get undercut by their own uni.

    sorry, but it doesn't get any more stupid than that.

    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.

      a Limbaugh station as simply anything Clear Channel owns?  Because UCLA's on that list, and our sports are broadcast on AM 570 here in Los Angeles.  That channel itself is all sports programming.  Yeah, it's tied in with Fox Sports, but that's the deal we have with the Pac-12.

        list was made UCLA broadcast on a station that also broadcast limbaugh. that may (probably) still be the case. like most major universities UCLA likely uses more than one station.

        back to limbaugh stations, if they have limbaugh they are RW radio stations and the vast majority of their programming and talkers are RW. he sets the tone for all of it and most of those stations/blowhards follow the GOP/think tank line.

        they are also coordinated for local politics. the limbaugh megaphone/soapbox with the bruin stickers on it likely played a big part getting gray davis recalled, for instance. and advocated for private prisons and lower school funding and lower pollution standards and voter ID BS. and probably does global warming denial regularly- the usual stuff. and probably has a lot to say on who and who isn't acceptable as UCLA chancellor and in elected positions.
