For the most part, broadcasters hold their tongues when playing sound bites of newsmakers. Unfortunately, Rush Limbaugh is one of the exceptions. He talks over the President and others, demonstrating another aspect of the disrespect he displays too frequently.
Sean Hannity follows suit, often speaking while playing a sound bite of Pres. Obama.
It’s not just conservatives who do it but these two are major offenders. The fact that radio station management or owners apparently don’t intervene to eliminate the incivility is another sad testimonial to the emphasis on the bottom line.
If you agree that Hannity and Limbaugh should be civil in their comments, contact Premiere Radio, which distributes both programs, at PublicRelations@Premrad.com
Or contact HANNITY’s program by calling 212-613-3800 and ask for the program director’s office
or contact LIMBAUGH at Premiere Radio, 818-377-5300.
