    Mitch,
    The case with Rush is that he has a strong loyal following of folks who are anti-EVERYTHING. He has cleverly learned how to manipulate the airwaves even with the major bumps in the road. And yes, there are advertisers who will still support him because they want to attract HIS listeners.

    Remember the debacle with Tiger Woods? Advertisers publicly announced their departure but when the dust settled some of them returned.
