Limbaugh's contract threatened?
Though still at the rumor stage, allegations of Rush Limbaugh's long history of dalliances with young boys may be threatening his contract and career.
An unidentified source close to Premiere Radio Networks, Limbaugh's syndicator, stated that there is a strict morals clause in his recent 400+ million dollar contract, imposed as a result of his drug addiction and its attendant scandal. Senior staff at Premiere are said to be "concerned" about the rumors and are prepared to revoke his contract should an internal investigation provide any tangible evidence of wrongdoing.
Premiere is also concerned about advertising revenue, said to be suffering as a result of the rumors, and a General Motors executive, requesting anonimity, told us that the company is prepared to yank its sponsorship "at the slightest hint of impropriety".
Limbaugh's contract is set to expire in 2016, but the Premiere source asserted that the morals clause is "absolute" and that "it not only severs his pay and benefits, but, in fact, imposes sanctions and penalties" on Mr. Limbaugh. He would not elaborate.
But some people are saying...

The Dummies try this from time to time. Going so far as to have several threads, all running at once demanding that Rush "refute these charges if they are not true." They did the same thing with First Lady Bush being arrested for prostitution when she was in college. They knew that they had just pulled these charges out of their ass. Nothing similar had appeared anywhere else but they hoped that it would grow legs.
They tend to forget that when these things come up for real, there is always at least SOME truth to the matter. Won't work any other way.

I never heard anything about Rush screwing kids until I read something from DU a few weeks ago. Where do they come up with this stuff? Is it just the viagra incident?Loyalty Binds Me- Motto of Richard III

It's been a real lame attempt at a "Google bomb", these idiots think that if they post this enough that it will move the story up.

1.6 million -- The number of daily postings, or more than 66,600 per hour.
39% of the blogs were in English.
31% of the blogs were in Japanese.
12% of the blogs were in Chinese.
2% of the blogs were in Spanish.
40% of those who start a blog are still posting on it three months later.

A Florida woman has been awarded $11.3 million in a defamation lawsuit against a Louisiana woman who posted messages on the Internet accusing her of being a "crook," a "con artist" and a "fraud."
Legal analysts say the Sept. 19 award by a jury in Broward County, Fla. — first reported Friday by the Daily Business Review — represents the largest such judgment over postings on an Internet blog or message board. Lyrissa Lidsky, a University of Florida law professor who specializes in free-speech issues, calls the award "astonishing."
