Member #17 used to sell tickets?

Member #17 has a report on the upcoming HBO documentary on Air America ("Left of the Dial") here:

...The main character, Evan Cohen, founding chairman and main investor, is depicted as a complete fraud.

The documentary shows Cohen arriving in the middle of night at AIR AMERICA offices to sign over the company and disappear again, but not before lying about how many ads have been sold and how much money is the bank [zero]...

It shows how AIR AMERICA executives lied and lied again about not bouncing checks to their Chicago and Los Angeles affiliate owners. [The network was quickly thrown off the stations.]

The film captures AIR AMERICA staff first learning about the Chicago and LA nightmare by reading a DRUDGE REPORT exclusive on their computers...

...[It] shows an angry meeting of the writing staff being told how money was deducted from their checks to pay for health care -- but the money was never paid to the HMO and they were never covered!

Host Janeane Garofalo looks suicidal in nearly ever scene which she appears...

But every drama must have a hero: Enter Randi Rhodes...

When she attempts to introduce herself to director Michael Moore [rushing out of a Franken Radio interview], Rhodes quickly realizes he does not even know who she is.

The heartbreaking scene is easily a frontrunner for this year's EMMYs...

Billboard reports:

Air America Radio president Jon Sinton told Billboard Radio Monitor "This documentary is a sanctioned event. Matt Drudge, notwithstanding, we’ve signed off on it. The filmmakers had access to us and it truly is a story of birth, death and resurrection. It's a very redemptive story. We’re not displeased with it at all..."

I hate AAR. Those Liberals trumpet all these falsehoods about our country. They act as if the country belonged to them. They act so tough, but when you actually confront them with hard facts they just insult you or change the subject. They just love to provoke you, and they always pretend they are an oppressed minority. They don't believe in the culture of life. They believe its OK to kill people as long as they aren't other Liberals. They hate everything Jesus stands for. I'm so tired of the Liberal media too. AAR is just another example of that. They hate our troops. They don't care what happens to them. They wish the whole country was just a bunch of Liberals just like them. They would take this country right to hell if it pleased their left-wing ideological masters. They can't stand anybody who doesn't think like them. We are the oppressed minority! Liberals are bloodthirsty, paranoid, fear-mongers. They just don't understand the scientific method. If they did, they would know that science is just a theory and it actually proves God. Liberals just don't get the war in Iraq. We had to overthrow Sadam for what he did to us on 9/11. Liberals don't believe in being responsible for the bad things they do. They don't believe in "owning it" when you lie or are wrong. They spend all their money then declare bankruptcy, and then make us pick up their slack. But I have to say, I'm confused about what Republicans stand for. Maybe you can help me with this. Fiscal conservatism? Not so much, look at our record 7.5 Trillion dollar deficit. Culture of life? Well, we did sort of kill 1500 of our sons and daughters in Iraq, didn't we? Oh ya, we also killed 150,000 civilians accidentally too. Woopssy. Lets see, Republican is the "Christian Party." Well that's true if you ignore Jesus' teachings. Oh I got it, Republicans believe in States' Rights. Yes, except in matters that affect a families right to live or die. I know, Republicans are Patriotic Americans and love what America stands for. Exactly, but if they dare tax me one damn dime to live here, I'm going to raise some hell. I don't want to pay for those freeways or that incredibly expensive invasion/occupation of Iraq. This country was founded on one religion above all others and the right to exploit the system to most dramatically improve the odds of a few people (who think like us) to succeed financially and attain a position of absolute power. Whatever, it doesn't matter that the Republican Party doesn't stand for anything anymore, most of the country IS WITH US. Well about half maybe. Well about half of the voting population, thanks to Diebold. Whatever, I hate Liberals and I hate AAR. Because I am a hateful person and my God is greater than any other. Screw other countries and their other gods. I hate France and the UN too. Oh hell, I'd hate Republicans but I have to be something. And I can't hate myself can I?
