41. protest universities that do athletics on racist limbaugh stations
which is basically an endorsement of those stations and limbaugh.

they are requiring students without TV and high speed to listen to those stations. those stations are dedicated to global warming denial and teacher and education bashing.

limbaugh is undeniably racist.

those unis have mission statement that would require them to break their contracts if taken seriously and they need to be challenged on that.

if some unis looked for alternatives or demanded balance local sponsors would drop out and the RW TR monopoly would fall apart.

no money needed- that's a fools errand- they have a monopoly and they have been protecting it.

and it is being ignored - there's no organized opposition to it and it's been kicking liberal ass for 20 years. an occasional recognition of limbaugh's racism or sexism completely misses RWTR's accumulated effect on US media and politics- the think tank coordinated repetition to 50 mil a week has been completely short circuiting the normal feedback mechanisms democracies depend on.
