    NOT a poll. I lift this question from another (related) thread where it is apparently going to be ignored. So, let's highlight it in its own little box:

    Is the effort of Media Matters to get Rush Limbaugh off the air* a valid move that gives due consideration for the value we place on free speech and the open market of competing ideas?

    I say that Media Matters is WAY off base. I say YOU libs OUGHT to be agreeing with me on that.


    What do you liberal members of the USMB have to say?

    And see its own website, where Media Matters talks of "monitoring" the advertising on Rush's radio show: Rush Limbaugh's Advertisers, March 6 | Media Matters for America

    That wasn't the question.

    Not to step on toes, but allow me to simplify the question.

    Do YOU believe Rush should not be allowed to express himself on the air?

    That's a yes or no question - if you're honest enough to answer.

    No shit.

    But of course, that's not the question.

    Nice dodge, though.

    Some on the left are more interested and so completely focused on settling a grudge with Limbaugh, that they've totally lost sight of how many they alienate with their tactics...it's ironic that they don't see how Rush continues to be able to claim victory when they choose that path.

    Is the right wings work towards voter suppression valid? A much more important question.

    It's ironic but I was thinking about this last week. I, too do not ever want to see Rush Limbaugh censored or forcibly banned from the airwaves, not that way. To see his advertisers dry up and his ratings go way down because of people just not interested in Rush... YES!
