Is Rush Limbaugh still on Armed Forces Radio?

Is our government still giving that lovely man a megaphone to influence our troops? Or were efforts to stop subsidizing his crap successful.?

5. The troops do not necessarily want him on the radio.

Upper echelon officers, maybe. Rank and file, I really doubt that.

6. Reeeallllly?

 

I have a son just returned from Afghanistan, USMC infantry. They swear by Rush. Whether it is Army, Air Force, Marines, you name it, those guys and women like to listen to his show.

9. I know that I have filled out online surveys...

 

... from AFN, when serving in Europe, about what I would and would not like to hear for TV and radio.

There is a demand and it seems to have held steady over the years.

13. How are these online surveys controlled?

A room of rush-bots at in each of the various posts in Germany could easily skew the survey results. Online survey tends to imply a self-selected, uncontrolled universe that is easily skewed.

15. Still waiting for WH response to 'Dump Rush' petition

The petition met the 25,000-signature threshhold for an official WH response in mid-March. It's now at 28,237 signatures (and counting--the petition is still live and may still be viewed and signed at the link below if you haven't done so yet).
