(Originally published 2:30 am PST - updated and retitled )

Clear Channel Network, the parent company of shows like, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Shawn Hannity, and sometimes referred to as Hate Radio, is now under fire by some Conservatives for blocking this Clint Eastwood ad. Clear Channel is already in deep financial troubles reported yesterday in Daily Kos.

Are we approaching the demise of Clear Channel?

Here are some posted comments from Clear Channel's Facebook page
(if not already scraped)

"No Longer Listing To Any Of Your Stations Anti Gun Communists"

"I can't not believe you are taking Clint off in the am at the wolf..."

"You don't want to air the Patriot spot appearing on YouTube huh? Well their are many people that will stop watching your crap. Let the boycott begin. I will be linking this video in every email I send to make sure people see this ad. I will also ask that people stop watching and listening to any of your Obama loving stations."

Clear Channel SUCKS! Your advertisers will hear from the gun community!

"Dear Clear Channel.... I just heard you could give a rats ass about America or it's freedoms & The Constitution... Apparently ALL you care about is titty bars & how to get an erection based on ALL the commercials you play for those kinds of..."

And this one is most interesting considering Clear Channel's allegiance to Limbaugh:

"Go to hell with your lib bullshit"

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.
