Heh. Pretty damned funny, really. Obama is sending Rush Limbaugh’s listenership through the roof, and consequently, his revenues as well:
The latest numbers I have are for January, well before this kerfuffle began, and they are through the roof — six shares in NY, for example. There are daily ratings taken now in about the top 15 markets but I have not seen them yet. All I can tell you is that as of January, we booked 80 percent of all our 2008 revenue and we’ll be over 2008 by the end of this month.
Eighty percent of all his 2008 revenue in one single month. Multiplied by 12 months – a 960% increase. That’s very, very good for Rush, indeed. It should also tell you a lot about whom the American Public trusts when there’s a pissing contest between the new neo-communist President, and a tried-and-true institution like Rush Limbaugh.
Probably too late for a do-over at this point, eh Barry?
Meanwhile, anyone seen the ratings for Katie Couric and/or David Letterman since that “mobster” crack?
