Rush Limbaugh can't catch a break. And for the life of me, I can't understand why he doesn't just retire now, so he and his self-proclaimed 'dittoheads' can move forward thinking it was his idea to leave public radio. Instead, he takes hit after hit, as if he actually believes he can survive the onslaught of continuous protest, failures, and condemnation. Four stations this month have now reported flushing rush for something better, and really, anything is better.

The latest radio station to dump Limbaugh is WSJM in St. Joseph, Michigan. reports:

WSJM-A-F/St. Joseph, MI To Split Simulcast, AM To Go Sports

August 21, 2014 at 4:21 AM (PT)

MID-WEST FAMILY News-Talk WSJM-A-F/ST. JOSEPH, MI will split its simulcast on Monday (August 25, 2014), with the FM remaining News-Talk and the AM flipping to Sports using Fox Sports Radio.

WSJM Sports Dir. and weekend "The Coaches" co-host Phil McDonald said that while the station will air FSR, "there is going to be a ton of local sports content all day long … it's going to be unbelievable how much more attention we can give to local high school sports, Lake Michigan College sports, other Michigan colleges like UofM (University of Michigan), MSU (Michigan State University), Grand Valley…."

Earlier in the week, Limbaugh lost a station in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. On August 7th, Tkirkland/Daily Kos, reported a Pittsburgh radio station flipped the switch on Limbaugh. And finally on August 1st, FlushFools/Daily Kos reported the California radio station, KROP, ditched Rush and switched to country music after '90% of their sponsors' were run off by StopRush/Boycotters.

Rush Limbaugh and his Hate Radio Parade pals, Beck and Hannity, are being traded in for contemporary/pop music, country music, classical music, sports and non-English speaking programs. It seems, finally, the radio stations are realizing what thousands of his sponsors have found out, the hard way. Rush Limbaugh is very bad for business. And his radio daddy, Clear Channel, is all too familiar with a failing business.

Hundreds of thousands of people are protesting Rush Limbaugh's racism, homophobia, misogyny and bigotry. The folks at StopRush, FlushRush and BoycottRush work hard to make it easy for anyone to join this incredibly effective protest:

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.
