Zogby backtracks; Horn flacks; Drobny attacks

It's a "Zig-Zogby", as pollster John Zogby has sent special people (but not us) an email clarifying that his new show ("Pulse of the Nation") on the "Nova M Radio Network" will be a "nonpartisan discussion". He stresses that his company is "independent" and is "not tied to the Democrats or the Republicans". And, the title of the email was... "Zogby Radio: A Fair and Balanced Look At What People Are Really Thinking".

In other news, Variety's article on the new network has nothing you don't already know, except for a couple interesting quotes. This one from Air America Radio spokeshole Jamie Horn made my day:
"Their attempt to start this company only validates Air America's mission and the need for a progressive voice in this country."
And, Sheldon Drobny gets a few digs in:
"Air America had a 'Field of Dreams' concept -- if they build it, they will come... The Chapter 11 filing speaks for itself."
And, there comes the news that Nova M will fight the power, whatsoever the power may be:
While Air America has positioned itself largely as an anti-President Bush network, Nova M Radio will be positioned as antiestablishment.

"They don't have to be left or right wing -- they just have to be truthful," [Drobny] said. "We want to be a balance and represent what the fourth estate should be doing to who's in power."
