Spreading the WordMedia Research Center Founder and President and NewsBusters.org Publisher Brent Bozell issued the following statement on the meteoric rise in the ratings Rush Limbaugh has enjoyed since the inception of the Obama White House and the Democrats' all-out coordinated attack against him.

As announced yesterday, audience numbers surged for Rush-carrying stations across the country, including in several of the nation's largest markets like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston.  Since the orchestrated campaign continued into March, ratings could reach even greater heights for this month.


"President Obama declared war on Rush Limbaugh and his ratings went through the roof.  If that's not a magnificent backfire, I'm not sure what is.

"Maybe the White House has learned its lesson and will stop launching coordinated assaults on individual members of the media who disagree with them.  Hopefully, they haven't."
