Monday’s Column: Democrats Rush to Save Talk Radio

Last week it was announced that Rush Limbaugh had signed a contract with Clear Channel Communications that could bring him up to $400 million through 2016.

Why was the media so freaked by Limbaugh’s contract, and what’s the government’s next move to “level the playing field” of talk radio? Give a read to “Democrats Rush to Save Talk Radio” for the whole story.
