    "In a statement to TPM, Clear Channel, which also manages the  billboard, said the ad "used the common expression ‘straight shooter’ to  describe Mr. Limbaugh’s candid and direct style." The company also said  explicitly that it was KNST’s promotion department that created the ad,  not Limbaugh’s show. But after Saturday, company management decided it  might not be such a good idea to keep the ad up.
"Clear Channel Outdoor management in Tucson quickly elected to take  down this ad - believing that discussion of its interpretation would not  contribute to the desire for healing in the Tucson community," Clear  Channel said"

    "Premiere On Call, a division of the Clear Channel subsidiary that distributes Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, is a service that hires actors to call into radio shows and read a script that purports to be a true story presented by the public. They bind their actors to confidentiality agreements, and disavow any involvement in fraud, saying “Premiere, like many other content providers, facilitates casting—while character and script development, and how the talent’s contribution is integrated into programs, are handled by the varied stations.”"

    The definition of ‘freedom of speech’ — the Limbaugh boycott

    David Brock reminds the dittoheads and other right-wing Limbaugh apologists that the First Amendment does indeed guarantee Limbaugh the right to say whatever he wants. It also guarantees that the rest of us are not required to listen to what he says — or support it financially. It’s all about self-responsibility, right? Say what you want but accept the consequences.

    In a March 20 Politico column, Media Matters founder David Brock explained how the advertiser exodus from Rush Limbaugh has “disintegrated” the business model that once fueled his show. […] Brock highlighted efforts by Media Matters and other groups “to educate advertisers about the damage their financial support of Limbaugh’s program can do to their brands.” Brock continued:

    There is a myth that advertiser actions, like those now targeted at Limbaugh, impinge on his constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech. The truth is just the opposite: They are a demonstration of the power of the First Amendment.

    We are not a government entity attempting to stifle Limbaugh’s speech. Instead, we are using our right of free assembly to join together and raise our voices against Limbaugh. We are, in fact, engaging in the marketplace of ideas, one in which people, examining all of the facts, can choose whether it is in their financial interest to support hate radio.

    We are confident, seeing the reaction over the previous two weeks, that sponsors will take their dollars elsewhere…

    MMFA also reports that,

    In the wake of Limbaugh’s attacks on Fluke, numerous advertisers are abandoning his show. It is also being reported that well over 100 companies have taken proactive steps to ensure that their ads don’t run on Limbaugh’s program and similar shows.

    And that’s the best news of all.

    That’s an actual quote, ladies.

    Conservative radio host wants nuns “pistol whipped” for disagreeing with Ryan’s budget
Another conservative mouth-breather with a tiny penis and a Clear Channel radio program. The quote above was said on 6/22/12.
And how did the “distinguished” Republican from Iowa, Rep. Latham, respond? He laughed.
