Editor’s note: Though reports about Rush Limbaugh’s offensive remarks aren’t front-page news anymore, radio-land still is shaking from the comments. Here’s a trade publication report from this week:

That was about any content ‘deemed to be offensive or controversial,’ not just the three-hour daily Limbaugh show.”
