Mike Malloy advocates violence against blogger

Air America host Mike Malloy has finally come even more unhinged, advocating violence against a blogger from BlogsForBush (Mark Noonan) and, presumably, against others who disagree with him: MALLOY: ...but when they do make these sweeping uh... umm... statements about Democrats better watch out, I think they should be responded to, the way Hunter responded...

Air America Sacramento: moving from KSAC to KCTC?

Sacramento is the capital of California, and it's where all those weird laws you hear about are birthed. Now, in order to keep up with the socialists in the Cali legislature, it looks like there might soon be two - count 'em, two - "liberal" stations there. Currently, Air America Radio appears on KSAC 1240... Keep reading >>>

WHAT's down? Air America canceled in Philly

WHAT AM 1340 in Philadelphia is stopping their broadcasts of Air America Radio's Al Franken and Randi Rhodes tomorrow. Those are the only two AAR shows they broadcast; Philly is spared, for instance, Mike Malloy. As previously discussed, WHAT's ratings didn't even make the charts. The main reason appears to be that those two "liberals"... Keep reading >>>

An Open Letter to Air America CEO Danny Goldberg

AAR's CEO Goldberg has a blog post at - where else! - the Huff Post.

Air America Radio finds some suckers

The DUmmie thread "I just donated $50 to Air America Radio" has to feature at least a few shills: I hope our donations help them to expand to more cities and upgrade to stronger transmitters. Wouldn't it be nice to find out that they were asking for donations for that (possibly fraudulent) purpose? Has anyone... Keep reading >>>

Big Ed Schultz is not a capitalistic running dog

While some comrades have raised questions about the revolutionary credentials of Air America host Ed Schultz, the picture to the right should dispel all worries of those esteemed comrades. As you can plainly see, "Big Ed" attended the protest organized by our co-workers from A.N.S.W.E.R. ANSWER is, of course, associated with Ramsey Clark's International... Keep reading >>>

I'm so excited I've already turned the sound down in expectation. On October 2, Janeane Garofalo begins her special guest stint on the West Wing television program.
