Al Franken beating robotic voice reading snippets

Terrific news for Air America and the Al Franken Show! Investors Business Daily reports that Al's show is the second most downloaded podcast from Apple's service, right behind iTunes' own show.

Of course, they also report that right behind Al is "Inside Mac Radio", which is no doubt right up there with the Rush Limbaugh show in popularity.

Also in the top five is the BBC World Service:

The content consists of little more than 15-second headlines, delivered in a robotic voice through a text-to-speech software program.

But, bear in mind that Al's show is ahead of the robotic voice reading snippets.

I love how there are no comments to the overwhelming majority of your posts... Maybe you should finally get the hint... No one cares about your lame site or your useless cause.

I like this site. I rather read this site than listen to Air America.

I find this site very helpful. Like it says...'Monitoring Air America Radio so You Don't Have To'. Just becasue people don't post, doens't mean there aren't people following this site.

Clearly you are following it..

This site is very funny, and I love how we learn of the silliness of the ErrAmerika idiot brigade without having to make my ears bleed by actually LISTENING to them.

>No one cares about your lame site or your >useless cause.

Count me as another who regularly reads this site but may not post comments.

My guess is that this "lame site" will outlast a certain lame radio network!

Why is there no mention of Rush's Podcast ranking?
Do more people listen to "the robotic voice reading snippets" than our beloved pill-popping teddy bear?

I Love Jesus:

For superficial liberals, whose thinking runs only skin deep, I bet you'd like to crow about how Frankin-fraud is getting so much Podcasting.

Of course, when you think about it, its really more an indictment on how poor Puffy Al is doing.

Rush does his podcasting from his pay-website. Why should he offer it for free? Also, with so few stations willing to air Frankin's daily lies, there aren't many alternatives to getting the broadcast, particularly when you know that the stations he is on are powered by 5 hamsters on an exercise wheel.

Frankin-fraud only dreams of the audience Rush has and he'll never see it...because Puffy Al is as entertaining as listening to paint dry.
