We've known 4 quite some time that Rush is in financial trouble, due 2 a campaign 2 get him defunded run by Media Matters & others.
But a story in the Wall St. Yurnal last week
points out that the trouble brought by Rusty has now spread, involving the entire hate radio sector.
According 2 the Yurnal, "More than 50 million people in the U.S. tune in each week to news-talk radio.
"But" the Yurnal continues, "many national advertisers have fled from such situations in recent years, seeking to avoid associating their brands with potentially controversial programming. As a result, advertising on talk radio stations now costs about half what it does on music stations, given comparable audience metrics, according to industry executives."
The damage hate radio's violent language & its tendency 2 champion stupid opinions have done 2 us politically, socially, spiritually, & ethically is impossible 2 calculate.
