AIR AMERICA, DEAD: “It is with the greatest regret, on behalf of our Board, that we must announce that Air America Media is ceasing its live programming operations as of this afternoon, and that the Company will file soon under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code to carry out an orderly winding-down of the business.” What a day for the Progressive Movement! Health care reform’s ~15 minutes from getting its plug pulled forever, the Supreme Court decided that corporations should be able to purchase politicians in the open market, and now… some radio station is dead. Should make for sunny open threads on Daily Kos. [Air America] Read more on …
 

Angry Liberal Radio Lady Suspended For Using Cuss Words! About Politician Ladies!

Here is some host lady, Randi Rhodes, from liberal radio’s Air America station. A few days ago she was performing some strange stand-up appearance and repeatedly called Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton “fucking whores,” and then said some stuff about Sheryl Crow, a.k.a. the poor man’s Sinbad. Air America suspended this Rhodes gal yesterday “for making inappropriate statements about prominent figures, including Senator Hillary Clinton, at a recent public appearance on behalf of Air America in San Francisco which was sponsored by an Air America affiliate station.” Here’s the clip (STRONG LANGUAGE SO ONLY WATCH IF YR ALONE OR HAVE A COOL BOSS).

Al Qaeda: Bush Is a Dumb Drunky Drunk Liar!

Internet video star Ayman al Zawahiri has appeared in many popular Al Qaeda messages that are only released in the middle of the night on unknown “websites” and then provided to U.S. TV news producers in the morning by “American terror analysts.” It happened again while you slept, and this time Zawahiri’s just reading old Air America transcripts. Bush is “an alcoholic, liar and gambler with an addictive personality,” says the terror bogeyman turned self-help guru. Read more on Al Qaeda: Bush Is a Dumb Drunky Drunk Liar!…

Air America Fires Host Malloy

America-hating talk show host Mike Malloy was reportedly fired by Air America Radio today. According to Malloy’s website, it was a total surprise: There will be no Mike Malloy program today — or any day — on Air America Radio as we have been terminated. We are told it’s a financial decision. We are as shocked as you are, especially since as recently as last Tuesday we were told we had the go-ahead to announce our return to NY airwaves and that our contract was “on the way.” We are told its a financial decision. Air America’s site doesn’t have anything about this, and the Malloy show is still listed. Read more on Air America Fires Host Malloy…

Where America?

How low are Air America’s ratings in DC? So low “Arbitron couldn’t detect a measurable listenership for the station this time around.” But is there any truth to the rumor that Chris Matthews in a crowded restaurant actually gets more listeners than the typical Air America broadcast? As far as we know, no. But still: what the hell happened to the liberal media elite’s insularity and self-absorption? — GREG BEATO Read more on Where America?…
 

Dial Tone: Air America’s Evan Cohen Found

Remember last week? Our most important concerns were Cindy Sheehan, Bush’s approval rating and the MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF EVAN COHEN, co-founder of Air America and the nefarious principle in an elaborate scheme to defraud a children’s charity in the name of liberal radio badness. The former board member’s absence — reported rather ominously in the NY Sun — was raised by several blogs as yet another link in a damning chain of evidence against the network (though you’d think the programming would be enough). The shadiness of the situation even prompted Michelle Malkin to offer her services: Read more on Dial Tone: Air America’s Evan Cohen Found…
