Like any true ally of the Obama White House, Media Matters believes that if at first you don’t succeed, you simply haven’t spent enough of other people’s cash.
Rush Limbaugh’s opponents are starting a radio campaign against him Thursday, seizing upon the radio star’s attack of a Georgetown law student as a “slut” to make a long-term effort aimed at weakening his business.
The liberal Media Matters for America is using a past campaign against Glenn Beck as a template. In Limbaugh, however, they’re going after bigger game. He’s already fighting back and the group’s stance has provoked concerns that an effort to silence someone for objectionable talk is in itself objectionable.
Media Matters is spending at least $100,000 for two advertisements that will run in eight cities.
Hey, why not? As desperate and futile as this is, it’s not the biggest waste of Media Matters’ money as long as their payroll still includes Eric Boehlert.
