Gloria Wise scandal update: did AAR pay it back or not?

The infamous "second press release" from Air America Radio contained this:

...we agreed months ago to fully compensate the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club as a result of this transaction...

On Friday Fox News had a blurb about the alleged misconduct which had this:

An Air America spokesman says, "We're committed to paying this money and the terms are being worked out... We are awaiting direction from the investigation into how to proceed."

These somewhat conflicting reports continue to raise more questions than answers: who knew what when and how much was involved?

Over at the DailyDross, they respond as you might expect: deny, obfuscate, deny, rinse and repeat. Even AAR itself admitting that something happened here is apparently not good enough for committed "liberals".

This is all part of the "liberal" backlash against this story. That links to more examples of liberals trying to run from the truth.

One of those linked to is our good buddy Jesse Taylor at pandagon.net. He refers to the Radio Equalizer's Brian Maloney as "Doughy McSweaty". (Note to those not that familiar with "liberals": anti-white and anti-Irish racism is OK.) Note that Taylor works for or volunteers for SpringerOnTheRadio. Gosh, think they might have a dog in this fight?

I'm also informed that CNN briefly mentioned this scandal in their aren't-bloggers-cute segment. That does not count as "MSM attention". Please, continue to display your Air America scandal counters.

I went on your site to figure out what the big scandal is? All I can see is that AAR is supposed to pay back a debt they had no right to recieve, and they're going to do that.

I don't get that this is even on par with Tom Delay and influence peddling he's been reprimanded for. Aren't you reaching?

And for all the talk about them being down in some markets...Limbaugh and Hannity are down 60% in their target demos.

So, if you have something to really say, say it. But it sure feels like a right wing circle jerk to me.
