Sen. KEN SALAZAR (D-CO) is demanding that CLEAR CHANNEL reprimand RUSH LIMBAUGH for his comments last week about possible riots at the DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION.
SALAZAR sent a letter to CLEAR CHANNEL FRIDAY calling LIMBAUGH's comments "a clear exhortation that those riots are exactly what he wants to happen. For that kind of incendiary comment, I ask CLEAR CHANNEL to reprimand Mr. LIMBAUGH."
CLEAR CHANNEL/DENVER Dir. of Programming KRIS OLINGER told the DENVER POST that she passed the letter on to LIMBAUGH's syndicator PREMIERE RADIO NETWORKS and does not believe SALAZAR heard or read the full transcript of LIMBAUGH's remarks, which LIMBAUGH reiterated, she noted, did not call for riots, but instead jokingly "dreamed" of riots that would be bad for the Democrats.
