Yet where have you condemned it? I've only seen you defending Limbaugh from attacks; going on about terrible, hypocritical liberals; and posting conspiracy theories about the girl being a Obama plant. Where in this have you said it was wrong? No where, you've never said it because you were too busy pointing out how Limbaugh is the victim of liberal hypocrisy. The fact the person you're defending so virulently launched a misogynistic attack on an ordinary citizen doesn't seem to have fazed you at all.

An ordinary citizen my ass!

Would I be correct in saying that Michelle Obama is an ordinary citizen by your standards?

Just proves that liberals can dish it, but can't take it.

Maher is not a Liberal.

I liked Bill Maher's act a lot more when George Carlin did it originally. Besides, a guy who once dated a woman nicknamed "Superhead" ought not make disparaging remarks about another woman.

Maybe he thought "Superhead" meant she was super smart. :shrug:

Wow! Just how brainwashed and allergic to common sense are you??? Michelle Obama has been the First Lady of the United States of America for 3-1/4 years... a public figure; who was Sandra Fluke when Limblab chose to attack her for simply voicing her opinion?

Michelle Obama jokes are, and have been all, over the place, and have been dealt with by those exercising that same freedom of speech. Why do you have a problem with your words, and words of others whom you agree with, being challenged? :confused: Can you explain that, Mr. Hypocrisy Charging Man?

SN: It would do you well if Helen were to come out of hiding, because on your own, you fail even more miserably than you did from simply cosigning each and every one of his posts. :tape:

If a conservative host called Michelle Obama a "c---," would liberals still say, "She's in the public. She deserves to be called that." Yeah right.

Please cite where any Liberal has said that any woman, regardless of political affiliation, has deserved to be called a c---. And also explain how a First Lady of the United States of America equates to a random grad student with an opinion.

Hypotheticals: All a Conservative has going for him.

Lmfao, AGAIN you sidestep it and defend it. And there's an obvious difference between the First Lady of the United States and a college girl testifying on an issue. Your response is so inane and again proves everything I've said. By now I think you're actually incapable of formulating an actual response of more than three sentences that address what someone says to you.

Fluck & Michelle Obama have demonstrated that they have little if any credibility on issues they've thrust themselves into.

So basically you think Limbaugh was right in what he did, going by your continual defending of him and attacking of Fluke. Good too know your soul has turned black enough that you even support misogyny now.

This reminds me of a poster on another board who claims that Chris "thrill up my leg" Matthews is a centrist because he voted for Bush (or at least says he did) in 2000.

No not right, but he did apologize while Fluke's still trying to stretch her 15 min. of fame. Rush is still on the air with sponsers. End of story!!!

Which brings us back to the price of gasoline. How much will it go up over the weekend?

Liberals said Palin deserved to be called c--- and other misogynistic names.

Michelle Obama is a c---, too. After all, according to liberals, she is a public figure, so she can be called that.

You call that a cite?

"Slut" Firestorm Sends Limbaugh Into Crisis Management Mode

March 22, 2012 5:00 pm ET by Oliver Willis

http://cloudfront.mediamatters.org/static/images/item/limbaugh-crisis-20110322.jpg

In the wake of his misogynistic and sexist comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, Rush Limbaugh has lost advertisers (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fthinkprogress.org%2Fmedia%2F201 2%2F03%2F02%2F436852%2Frush-limbaugh-advertisers%2F) and affiliates (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203050016).

According to Limbaugh, this hasn't affected his business (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203130010), and he claims that advertisers are still beating down the door to be on his show (despite a memo (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203100003) circulated by syndicator Premiere Radio Networks listing advertisers who specifically are asking to be excluded from Limbaugh and other controversial shows).

A closer look at the issue debunks Limbaugh's rhetoric.

The New York Times reported (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2F2012%2F03%2F1 4%2Fbusiness%2Fmedia%2Fad-boycott-dents-limbaugh-shows-bottom-line.html%3Fsrc%3Drecg) on March 13 that Premiere had lost "less than $2 million in revenue" as a result of pulled advertising, according to "a person with knowledge of the company." In the same article the Times reported that Premiere had told affiliates in an internal memo that they could pull barter ads that they are usually required to run in exchange for the program -- a major source of revenue for the company. Industry publication Radio-Info.com described (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.radio-info.com%2Fnews%2Frush-syndicator-tells-newstalk-affiliates-not-to-run-its-barter-spots-for-2) the move as "unusual." The reported loss of revenue would have occured before any barter ads were pulled and within the two week period between Limbaugh's comments and the Times article.

Limbaugh also faces (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203120007) the loss of affiliates owned by Cumulus Media Networks, whose CEO said the ongoing controversy would be "very helpful" to the planned national launch of a radio show for Mike Huckabee. Huckabee's brand of talk is being sold as "more conversation and less confrontation." One of the stations that dropped Limbaugh in response to his comments has already said it will begin airing (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.berkshireeagle.com%2Fci_202 06677%2Fwbec-radio-picks-up-mike-huckabee-limbaugh-rsquo) Huckabee's show when it premieres next month.

While he's publicly scoffed at the notion that the reaction to his misogyny is having an impact, he's quietly hired an expert in crisis management to handle the fallout.

Brian Glicklich has been acting on Limbaugh's behalf since at least (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Flatimesblogs.latimes.com%2Fente rtainmentnewsbuzz%2F2012%2F03%2Frush-limbaugh-advertiser.html) March 8. Glicklich is a former vice president at Premiere Radio Networks, and currently heads the firm How Handy Is That (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fhowhandyisthat.com%2F), which specializes in reputation and crisis management and "gadfly defense (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fhowhandyisthat.com%2Fadvocacy-gadfly%2F)." He previously worked (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fsitrick.com%2Fnews-about-sitrick%2F2008%2F10%2F2008-agency-report-card) as counsel to a firm that provides crisis management to clients like David Copperfield and Paris Hilton. Glicklich also has an extensive relationship with Glenn Beck, and is thanked in the acknowledgements of several (https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Brian+Glicklich%22&btnG=Search+Books&tbm=bks&tbo=1) of Beck's books.

The website for Glicklich's firm, How Handy Is That, describes his work (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fhowhandyisthat.com%2Fadvocacy-gadfly%2F): My clients often find themselves under attack from outside advocacies or pressure groups. Sometimes these groups are little more than an individual Gadfly with strong digital organizing knowledge. Often, my client has previously underestimated their opposition, to their detriment, before calling me.

Effective management of these situation is based on a multiplex analysis of the opposition's business and reputational influence power, the strength of our position vis a vis our opposition, opposition research for motivation and weak spots, and a number of other factors.
Glicklich's Twitter account (https://twitter.com/#%21/bglicklich), which had been unused for a month, came back to life on March 15 and began promoting defenses of Limbaugh. Coincidentally, Limbaugh began (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.politico.com%2Fnews%2Fstori es%2F0312%2F74075.html) using his official Twitter account on the same day. Politico noted, "Rush Limbaugh is mobilizing his army of dittoheads: on Twitter."

Facing an advertiser revolt, loss of affiliates and revenue, along with negative public relations and a challenge to his prime position on the airwaves, Limbaugh is fully engaged in an effort to push back on the story.

But in public, he insists (http://mediamatters.org/mmtv/201203190008) that his listeners didn't think his comments were "that big of a deal to begin with."

That's because your listeners are mindless dittoheads who think whatever you tell them to. :facepalm:

Clear Channel Can't Make Up Its Mind About Free Speech

March 22, 2012 12:56 pm ET by Eric Boehlert

When the Sandra Fluke controversy first broke at the beginning of the month and Rush Limbaugh was under siege for his creepy and inappropriate sexual taunts targeting the Georgetown University law student, his syndicator, Premiere Radio Networks, put out of statement reiterating the right of all sides to express their opinions.

The Clear Channel-owned company, which pays (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203160002)Limbaugh $400 million, insisted Limbaugh's ugly misogynistic rants were simply part of the free marketplace of ideas.

From (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Fhostednews%2Fa p%2Farticle%2FALeqM5i3hltOXwsA7Yu9Gyu-qIwPJfehqg) the Associated Press, March 5 [emphasis added]: "The contraception debate is one that sparks strong emotion and opinions on both sides of the issue," Premiere Networks said in a statement on Sunday. "We respect the right of Mr. Limbaugh, as well as the rights of those who disagree with him, to express those opinions."
According to Clear Channel, everyone has a right to their opinion, and everyone has a right to disagree with Limbaugh and to "express those opinions."

But now, three weeks into the radio debacle (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203220007) and after more than 50 previous Limbaugh advertisers have bolted from his show, Clear Channel's tune has changed and suddenly it's most definitely not okay for Limbaugh's opponents to express their disagreement with the talker:

From (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cbsnews.com%2F8301-502927_162-57402239%2Fradio-campaign-next-step-against-rush-limbaugh%2F) an AP article today about Media Matters radio commercials (http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Du eQDqhGCKjw%26feature%3Dautoplay%26list%3DUU_70iWZ6 ym2cglS_kv5YfmA%26lf%3Dplcp%26playnext%3D1) now airing in several cities and which urge listeners to complain to Limbaugh's stations about his rhetoric: "This is not about women," said Rachel Nelson, Premiere spokeswoman. "It's not about ethics and it's not about the nature of our public discourse. It's a direct attack on America's guaranteed First Amendment right to free speech. It's essentially a call for censorship masquerading as high-minded indignation."
According to an agitated Clear Channel spokesperson, Limbaugh's opponents have attacked his "First Amendment right to free speech." How? By contacting his affiliates and complaining about the insanely hateful and sexist comments he made about Sandra Fluke.

In the span of two weeks, Clear Channel has embraced two very different views about the freedom to express opinions. What will next week bring?

Better Pizza, Better Boycott: Papa Johnís Drops Rush Limbaugh

By: Jason EasleyMarch 30, 2012see more posts by Jason Easley (http://www.politicususa.com/author/Jason/)

http://data.politicususa.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/rush-limbaugh-pizza-300x191.jpg (http://www.politicususa.com/rush-limbaugh-papa-johns/rush-limbaugh-pizza/)

Despite the fact that Rush Limbaugh and his P.R. offensive have declared the boycott over, Papa Johnís has dropped Rush Limbaugh.

In response to the BoycottRush campaign, Papa Johnís has announced that they are going to discontinue their advertising on Rush Limbaughís program.

http://data.politicususa.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/papa-john-300x161.png (http://www.politicususa.com/rush-limbaugh-papa-johns/papa-john/)

Interestingly enough, this news came shortly after Limbaugh went on a P.R. offensive in order to declare the boycott finished. Rush even went as far as to compare the boycott against him to the shooting of Trayvon Martin (http://www.politicususa.com/trayvon-martin-limbaugh-victim/). The problem for Rush is that while he was proclaiming victory, he lost three more advertisers. Kohler, (http://www.politicususa.com/rush-limbaugh-boycott-200/) and Legal Zoom have also bailed on Limbaughís show in the last few days.

Limbaughís standard defense has been to claim that his ratings are up since the boycott, but what he keeps forgetting is that Glenn Beckís ratings went up while he was being boycotted to. This boycott isnít about ratings. Itís about advertisers. Sure some advertisers may trickle back in, but pardon me if I express some skepticism at the timing of the Washington Post proclamation that the boycott is over.

Rush Limbaugh hired a P.R. firm/crisis management team (http://mediamatters.org/blog/201203220020) and low and behold, a couple of weeks later The Washington Post is proclaiming the boycott dead. As much as Rush Limbaugh hopes beyond hope that it will, this boycott isnít going to just up and go away one day. That isnít how these things work. The boycotters will keep going. They will keep pressuring any advertiser who comes back to Rush Limbaughís program. Day after day after day, they will be there. Rush Limbaugh will never escape their watchful eye.

Unlike conservatives, progressives and liberals donít cut and run when things get tough. They didnít quit when Glenn Beck and Fox News pushed back on them, and they arenít going to quit now. The truth is that Rush Limbaugh isnít personally feeling the pain of this boycott. He has a contract, and he is still getting paid. What terrifies Rush Limbaugh in the darkness of night, what wakes him up in a cold sweat is the knowledge that the boycotters have found his weak spot.

This boycott is attacking the support beam that holds his empire together. Rush Limbaughís entire success is based on one thing, advertiser dollars. If those advertiser dollars dry up, the market for Rush Limbaugh goes bye-bye. Ratings donít matter. It is all about the advertising.

Limbaugh can keep talking about his ratings, but as long as advertisers continue to leave, the boycott is successful, and Rush Limbaughís broadcast empire remains in jeopardy.
