Dead Air On Rush Limbaugh’s Show

Rush Limbaugh has characterized the almost 50 advertisers that have ditched him as an insignificant number compared to those that remain. “It’s like the couple of french fries left in the bottom of the bag you get at the drive thru.” And yet Media Matters reports today that twice during the Limbaugh show there were periods of dead air, the second of which lasted 2:38. How many french fries was that again?
