BUT EVERYONE AT THE DNC LISTENS....:

Air America Faces a Cash Crunch, Its Star Host Says (DAVID LOMBINO, September 14, 2006, NY Sun)

Air America Radio, the liberal talk-show network, is fighting off bankruptcy, the face of the network, Al Franken, told The New York Sun yesterday.

Given that he's the face how could it not be?

When I was in New York back in June you couldn't miss the faces of Franken, Randi Rhodes, Janeane Garafalo, et al., beccause they were plastered everywhere in midtown Manhattan on bus signs, subway posters and above the covered walkways at construction locations. The signs touted the Air America crew on WLIB, which has since dropped the network in favor of gospel music, so all that advertising had to be scrubbed completely or replaced with ads for their new station. No wonder they're having cash flow problems.

Why, everyone I know listens to it.

"Face"? So that's what they call it in New York.

One of the few times I've ever listened to it was on a drive to Texas. I refuse to believe that even a typical down-a-line liberal would wish to listen to this sophomoric hate speech -- a political equivalent of the discursive rants perfected by teenagers -- for longer than it takes to locate an oldies station.
