It has started: Out with Rush, in with Air America

   By Majority Reporters at 6:26 PM

As I had hoped, radio stations are starting to dump Rush Limbaugh in favor of the Air America programs, as mentioned in the following article:

Limbaugh dumped for liberal show

By DANIEL BARLOW Southern Vermont Bureau

BRATTLEBORO — A southern Vermont-based radio station will trade in the rhetoric of Rush Limbaugh and other conservative talk show hosts for the liberal commentary of Air America next week.

WKVT-AM 1490 in Brattleboro will replace four of its weekday syndicated conservative talk shows on Jan. 17 with programs from the fledgling liberal radio network Air America, which launched in March.

The station will be the second in Vermont to broadcast Air America programs, which include shows hosted by comedian Al Franken and actress Jeanne Garofalo.

The Brattleboro area is highly liberal in its political beliefs and the Air America shows will be a better fit for the station's listeners than the conservative programs hosted by Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly, said WKVT program director Peter Case.

Yes, they are. But be careful how you say "Rush Limbaugh." The FCC is listening.

After all, much like "dog shirt," Rush Limbaugh sounds like dog s__t.
