From a Rolling Stone article on AA's first week, here's the first paragraph:
There's The O'Franken Factor on Air America, a little island, an outpost, a brand-new infidel in the empire of conservative wrath and rant radio, the solitary liberal midday talk show in America, with Al Franken, the comedian and writer, in command. Around the offices of The Factor, it is sometimes observed that March 31st, the day the show began broadcasting, marked the end of the television era and the beginning of the era of radio...
Unfortunately, I scanned the whole article. Most of it is quotes from Franken. As for the author of the piece, I don't think he's kidding. That's right, that paragraph above was not meant sarcastically.

Monitoring Air America Radio [TM] so you don't have to.
