So in the 12 to 3 PM est block Rush says these people dropped him, and in the 9 to 12 est block, some other host or station is saying buy from these sponsors. Is this a good idea? I suppose he wants people to give his tea for Mother's Day and not a competing product. Seems to be hurting other radio people and the stations that are caught in the middle.
Just bringing up the names of the 2 sponsors that dropped him during the Mother's Day season seems to be getting a little nasty, of course they dropped him...however any new RUSH sponsors might think if they advertise with him, then drop him, they might be targeted with negative commentary?
Why not let sleeping dogs alone and move on? Rush seems to have gotten new sponsor, conservative websites and think tanks, so why hurt your affiliates??
Couldn't agree more.
Why would any sponsor want to do business with a show that pulls that? Any potential clients would have to consider that if they too one day decide to drop their sponsorship, they may face the same condemnation.
Rush's ability to hold a niche audience grants him immense power. It's becoming quite apparent that the only entity capable of bringing him down, is him.
And he seems to be working on it.
