Last week a violent mob attacked the seat of the United States government. Five people died including a Capitol Police Officer who was bludgeoned to death by the crowd. The attackers were armed and carried zip ties to kidnap and possibly kill high ranking members of our government. You may believe in the righteousness of the cause but as far as the national security infrastructure is concerned they are on the same level as Al Qaeda and drug cartels. They attacked the Capitol building, which is what the Flight 93 hijackers failed to do.
Cumulus attorneys looked at the bloodshed and then listened to the rhetoric of their hosts and realized, correctly, that they may not be able to survive a challenge to their FCC licenses. They also want to head off an advertiser boycott. If I had to guess Levin, Shapiro, and Plante are off WLS by St Patrick’s Day. They will let Father Time take care of Rush.
