    Radio is big business now, and it's all about the money.  As long as Rush pulls in large numbers of listeners in the desired demographic, he will be on the air.

      It was based on paid advertising from the start. Sponsors actually paid for the entire programing at one time, not just for the commercials.

      Jack Benny (Jell-o, Lucky Strike), Fibber McGee and Molly (Johnson's Wax), etc had only one sponsor for a season or seasons (although except for Fibber, did change from time to time). The commercials were sometimes part of the program's script.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.

    •  advertising money is gravy to this propaganda op (0+ / 0-)

      ad money keeps the stations happy but RW radio has been worth trillions selling war, deregulation, tax breaks, global warming denial, RW supremes, and loony GOP representatives.

      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.
