Danny Goldberg strikes back at the L.A. Times reactionaries

The Los Angeles Enquirer-Cageliner-Times prints an epistle ("Radio's Air America Is Finding an Audience") from Air America's CEO, Danny Goldberg concerning the recent L.A. Times piece "Why the Liberals Can't Keep Air America From Spiraling In".

Apparently that article is "petulant and inaccurate" and "there is a large and growing audience for liberal talk."

The letter includes these assertions that remain to be verified by our interns at Team BoreAmerica:

...Every one of the original stations that picked up Air America has experienced dramatic increases in ratings. Our audience more than quadrupled what it was just nine months ago... A recent study by the independent Paragon Media showed that in markets where we are on the air, the names Al Franken and Air America have a greater familiarity than any other talk-radio names except Rush Limbaugh. Our Internet stream reaches 1.3 million separate listeners a week, more than any conservative show...

The Times also publishes the thoughts of KTLK's Station Manager: "The truth is, like it or not, Air America and Progressive Talk radio are here, they are flourishing and this is only the beginning."
