    And ratings are what matters when you are talking about profit-making corporations running the network.

      We talk about him - free advertsiing - and calls for a boycott causes controversy - more free advertising - so more people watch.  So we talk about it more, and so on.

      I've said it before, but Beck (and Limbaugh and their ilk) probably paid for buses to get Obama voters to the polls.  Election Day 2008 was their winning lottery ticket.

    •  Ratings mean nothing when people wont (0+ / 0-)

      push dollars your way through advertising.

      Advertisers know, that no matter HOW POPULAR Beck gets, his audience is a minority, and pissing off the majority is a losing strategy for sales.
