For general discussion and debate: Possible talking point: Rush is with us for another eight years!

The American broadcast industry is rocked, realigned and blasted into a new orbit, yet again, by Rush Limbaugh, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. In what is being described as an unprecedented radio contract, Limbaugh will keep his syndicated show on-the-air and e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e through 2016 with CLEAR CHANNEL and PREMIERE RADIO. Already host of the most lucrative hours since radio's inception, Limbaugh's total package is valued north of $400 million, according to media insiders (report and picture courtesy Drudge).

What does this announcement -- and Rush -- mean to you, and what does it say about the rest of the mainstream media?
