"The right wing talk media empire is taking some hits," observes Anthony Violanti. Rush Limbaugh got the boot from ESPN last week after making racially charged comments about "black quarterbacks."

Columnist Robert Novak is in the center of a controversy about his role in publishing a White House leak that outed an undercover CIA officer. (Yeah, but who hired these guys in the first place?)
