As previously discussed, XM Satellite Radio is now the official source for AAR.
Late last month, XM struck a deal with DirecTV, another satellite company that broadcasts televisionally:
DirecTV is the nation's leading satellite service with more than 14 million customers. Starting on Nov. 15, they will receive 72 of XM's music and talk channels, including the adult-oriented "High Voltage" channel, which features shock jocks Opie & Anthony, fired from WNEW in New York for broadcasting a couple claiming to have sex in St. Patrick's Cathedral.
In order to prevent Air America being one of those 72 channels, I suggest starting a letter writing campaign to XM pimping all the other possible channels. Alternatively, we could start a petitiononline thing threatening to boycott XM and DirecTV if they do choose AAR.
Leave your best strategery in the comments.

Absolutely, great idea. Just the way Hitler would stifle the opposition.
Spot on, brother!

Hey, if Cons really think AAR is on the brink of going under, then why this site and why try to get a petition to stop them from going on DirecTV??
Why not just sit back and let it fail on its own?
You guys aren't secretly scared that AAR might actually start giving the Limbaugh/Hannity axis some real competition, are you?

Why give them the attention?! They would love it. AND they would alert the press. Just ignore Air America Radio, like the rest of America does.
