    Those who are stating Mr. Limbaugh hasn't lost advertisers are liars. Listen, you'll only hear public service announcements, a few local ads on the local affiliate and lots of promotions for the station itself. Oh, and Limbaugh pushing some new ice tea to retailers (Tea for Two).

    Can't say I have... but I'm not a desperate hack with an agenda.

    I suggest you go back and read your (too) many posts. Desperate and a hack are not terms I would use to describe you, but they work.

    If you are hearing local advertisers and filler promoting your local affiliate, those are local breaks.
    In the Bay Area I'm surprised Limbaugh would have any local sponsors.
    The ice tea spot sounds like a network spot.

    The ice tea spot sounded to me like a business Limbaugh was promoting, it was he who did the spot. My sense was it was not a paid spot since his face is on their web site.

    See:

    Two If By Tea® - Welcome!

    BTW, the Bay Area is very diverse and a mecca for entrepreneurs. Don't believe SF or the Metro Area's 7,5 million people are all Berkeley liberals (even CAL has its share of conservatives profs and students).

    That ad is hilarious.
    He's being paid somehow either in trade for a lot of tea or cash. Unless he owns the company.

    It's a good thing to listen to Limbaugh; doing so provides a greater understanding on why the echo chamber/callous conservatives are so sure they know the truth - they get it from The Limbaugh. In the 90 minutes I listened to his monologue I heard nothing but his opinions based on his opinions, some of which belied current events which I witnessed from primary sources.

    How and why he has influence over so many is astonishing and a sad commentary on the intelligence of the average American.
