Rush Limbaugh's Ratings Have Fallen 30% In The Last Six Months
The just-released Arbitron report reveals that a lot less people are listening to right-wing talk radio.

With a lull in ratings since November, Rush Limbaugh had a 3.0 share of listeners for his radio time slot, which is a 33% slide from October and from last April, reports Crain's Business.

Meanwhile, The Sean Hannity Show was reported to be down 28% from its peak numbers in the fall.

Hopefully that means more listeners have tired of the constant negative talking points and lies.

True story: The first time I heard Limbaugh I will pulling off Sunset Boulevard into the parking lot at work (running a tad late!) at 9am ish and he was ranting and said the word "Feminazi". I nearly hit the metal pole in the driveway! I was so pissed off, that when the KFI radio rep came in later I railed at him for having this ass on his station.

Of course, Mike thought he would have some fun with me and a few days later he put an 8x10 glossy of Rush on my chair signed "Love & Kisses, Rush"! I shredded it immediately to his roaring laughter. Periodically he would do this to me with the same response on my part. I have a physical reaction to Rush's voice and even worse reaction to seeing him. Banghead

Interesting, Pat! One wonders about the women who soak up the limpbaugh bullshit. I remember hearing his name in the '90s when my bosses at the cafe I worked at on Kauai were talking about the chef..they said he listens to rush limbaugh. That meant nothing to me at the time 'cause I didn't know what he did but it sure meant something to them apparently.

Then I was up in my cupola in New York trying to get a Scottish music station I'd heard about on my radio and this ranting shite was blasting my space..and I said..I bet that's limbaugh and got it turned off as soon as I could.

That's surprising. I thought their audience had already shrunk down to the true believers. What would make someone suddenly stop listening now?

Thankfully, it looks like even hate has a limited shelf life.

I guess even all hate, all the time can get old for the true believers.... or maybe the old folks who lapped up this swill are dying off and not being replaced.

As in the famous words of the Secret Service guy.. Can't. Stand. The. Blather.

He had to apologize for using the new Secret Service Twitter account but not for what he said. roflmao

His aging white demographic is slowly shuffling off this mortal coil, and not being replaced.

Too bad.

I might shed a tear...or not.
