David Brock was leading a boycott Limbaugh campaign and spinning radio business changes as being a sign of a failure of Rush Limbaugh, which possibly hurt Rush Limbaugh’s advertising budget, but backfired on Progressive Talk Radio because advertisers wanted to pull out of all talk radio.

“Nothing is going to change. You gonna be able to get this radio program on as many, if not more radio stations down the road than it’s on now; and what you’re being treated to is just a public business negotiation.”

— Rush Limbaugh
