Despite the Lack of Publicity, the Effort to Boycott Rush Limbaugh is Going Well, Thank You.

UPDATE! So many people have asked how to get involved we put this list  together, join us!

Despite what Clear Channel wants you to think, the national grassroots effort to boycott Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors is working in its own quiet way.

Actually, the effort has been more about notifying advertisers than boycotting.

Every day volunteers grit their teeth and listen to Limbaugh’s hate-filled lunchtime show on hundreds of affiliates across the country.  They keep track of who is Read more…

Limbaugh Boycott: Clear Channel Exec Tries to Appear Confident – We Know Better!

March 28, 2012 1 comment

Tuesday evening the AP released a story written based on an interview with the Chairman of Clear Channel, Bob Pittman.   His response is pure PR- anyone who is familiar with marketing can spot a campaign here.

What ABOUT the FCC? They Childproof TV, Why Not Publicly Accessible Radio?

There has been a lot of talk about the fact that our friend Mr. Limbaugh seems to have crossed the line that one would assume is drawn by the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) parameters. While some argue it would violate Limbaugh’s first amendment rights, he is not protected by the first amendment because his programming is available on public airways is aired during time when children may access it.

The lines of decency are set for a reason and despite challenges by Supreme Court, the authority remains in the hands of the FCC. There have been calls to file complaints against Mr. Limbaugh. That is a good idea and we should all do that.  But I suggest that you Read more…
