Rush Limbaugh is aired by Premiere Radio Networks.

Premiere Radio Networks is a wholly owned subsidiary of Clear Channel.

Clear Channel is owned by Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee, LP.

Mitt Romney still receives money from Bain Capital. And I believe he still owes significant amounts of Bain through his "blind" trust.

Furthermore, employees of Bain have donated $2.7M to his 2012 campaign, per Open Secrets.

The conclusion is obvious: Mitt Romney profits from Rush Limbaugh. Mitt Romney cannot avoid responsibility for anything Limbaugh says, including his recent egregious comments on Sandra Fluke. Even Rick Santorum has called Rush "absurd" - but Mitt can't be bothered.

That won't fly, Mitt. You enjoy firing people who don't serve you as you desire. Well, Rush works for you. Will you try to have him fired?


Does Romney have an obligation to speak out against Limbaugh?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
