Just when I thought that this week couldn't get any better...Air America finally folds

Yep...on the heels of America giving the Obama/Progressive movement the finger in Massachusetts by electing Republican Scott Brown to Ted "the swimmer" Kennedy's old senate seat and the Supreme Court striking down much of the McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance law as unconstitutional, Air America, the radio network established to blast liberal hate for President Bush and American values in general into the airwaves, has finally declared bankruptcy and will shut down for good. Never able to make money on advertising (for the simple reason that it never drew any significant audience...ane who wants to listen to that crap?)and financed by a ring of wealthy liberals and the theft of funds from at least one children's organization, the network that gave voice to such miserable haters as Randi Rhodes, Janeane Garafalo, Rachel Maddow and Al Franken is now going the way of all of those liberal investors' dollars...right down the toilet.

Of course in their press release, they claim that they failed because...well...because all of radio is down right now. It's not because they suck or because no one wanted to listen to them spew hate and derision at everyone else who wasn't to the left of Marx. Of course not. I mean, anyone can see that Limbaugh, Hannity, Ingraham, Beck and the other conservative hosts are losing advertising revenues, too. Oh, wait--no they aren't. The conservative shows are doing just fine and actually picking up more stations. So maybe it is just the nimrods at Air America who couldn't attract an audience or compete in the arena of ideas. That free market's a bitch, isn't it, lefties?

    Not to sound mean, but perhaps Liberals don't need "pundits" like Republicans tend to. Perhaps that speaks to the success of conservative punditry vs. liberal punditry. This is just my opinion, but I think it has some merit.

    Liberals don't necessarily need a "speaker" to listen to, as it were.

  5. Air America didn't collapse because millions of people who think like they do are too independent to need a leader; it collapsed because only a few think like they do and the rest of America didn't like the message enough to bother listening. It's about market share and nothing more and the liberal screed was not something that mainstream America could related to or wanted.

    Most people, even on the left, would enjoy having a beer with Rush Limbaugh because he's a nice, funny guy. The left cannot make that same claim about it's representatives because for whatever reason, the left's icons aren't nice or funny--just mean and bitter. No one tunes in to spend their day with people like that and that's why Air America crashed and burned.
