Is America finally getting tired of "all hate, all the time" radio? Seems like it. The bloated granddaddy of them all, Rush Limbaugh, has lost a full third of his audience over the last several months according to Arbitron, the definitive radio ratings service. Sean Hannity's radio show lost 28%, and Glen Beck has already been fired from the Fox Noise cable channel (his final show has yet to be scheduled.) He has lost 30% of his audience and over 300 advertisers.
Is this the beginning of the end of the lies, inflammatory rhetoric, and race baiting? Not really. Just several fewer carnival barkers screaming, and millions fewer paying attention.
