Revenue.

I work in broadcasting on the management side and I can tell you without a doubt that that one word sums up the situation. Imus was fired because MSNBC advertisers were threatening to pull out and take their money somewhere else, plain and simple, he was a threat to revenue. Sholud Limpknob's advertisers ever do the same, he'll hot the bricks too.

Unfortunately, Flush's audience is a bunch of redneck nazi pigs who lap his slop up with relish, so I don't see anything changing there unfortunately.
