Rush Limbaugh’s power

Conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh has more power than I thought. He was able to put the kibosh on the casting of a new James Bond. At least that’s what it says on the Yahoo! front page:

While legitimate news sources report that Mr. Limbaugh merely expressed his outrage at a black James Bond, Yahoo insists that he has forbidden the casting. Either that, or the writer has no idea what nix means.
