Any article from an NYC-based site that starts out "While Swiffering her city apartment, Janeane Garofalo takes a moment to chat with Metro..." immediately grabs my attention and holds it long enough to read Janine offering a pro-Air America talking point more often associated with Al Franken:
"...Air America was the fastest growing talk radio station in history, 18-35 demo. Sam [Seder] and my show consistently beat out long-standing, right-wing, regressive radio. The problem was we got conned in the beginning by some shysters. It was difficult to recover from that. Then we were plagued by "who's going to run this thing and do it for no pay?" We've never gotten back on our feet from those financial debacles. The myth is that liberal talk radio doesn't work or can't work. That's crap."

Nice to see that the newspaper has enough money to hire as many fact checkers as AAR: Zero.
Memo to Janeane: Air America is a network, not a station. What does it say about her radio acumen that she "worked" in the industry for 2 years and still hasn't learned that distinction?
2. Majority Report "beat out ... right-wing radio". Uh ... really? Your show was up against Michael Savage. I have a hard time believing you were beating him on a consistent basis (if ever).

This article omits important details, such as whether she was wearing a French maid outfit while Swiffering, and does she practice safe Swiffering? Enquiring minds want to know. God, are those glasses awful or what?

"Enquiring minds"? Not me. I don't care if Garofalo Swiffers in a french maid outfit or baggy sweats. Yawn.
