BACKFIRE! Obama and the Democrats’
Attacks on Rush Limbaugh Send Radio Ratings through the Roof
– Talk radio titan Rush Limbaugh and stations that carry his #1
national show experienced a dramatic surge in February ratings,
timed precisely with the launch of President Barack Obama and the
Democrats’ anti-Rush assault.
yesterday, audience numbers surged for Rush-carrying stations across
the country, including in several of the nation’s largest markets
like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston. Since the
orchestrated campaign continued into March, ratings could reach even
greater heights for this month.
Center President Brent Bozell reacted to the news:
declared war on Rush Limbaugh and his ratings went through the
roof. If that’s not a magnificent backfire, I’m not sure what is.
“Maybe the White
House has learned its lesson and will stop launching coordinated
assaults on individual members of the media who disagree with them.
Hopefully, they haven’t.
