Has Clear Channel been conspiring to cancel Air America and libtalk in general from the airwaves? The shocking truth can now be revealed in this post.
It worked like this. CC put AAR on the weakest stations in their markets, then sold packages of advertising for all their other stations in the market except for AAR. Through some mechanism that I can't understand, that undercut AAR's ad sales. Plus, with CC putting AAR on the weakest station, no stronger station in the market could carry it. This whole plan was so fiendishly clever that I still have trouble understanding it. But, I know it must be true:
This is what they planned all along; put the shows on shitty stations, do everything possible to NOT sell advertising, and then claim low ratings and an inability to sell ads to not only to rationalize their getting rid of the programs, but to poison the water for other station owners, who might be thinking about picking up the programming, but can't afford to lose money.
Special note: Clear Channel agents monitor all Internet traffic. THEY KNOW YOU READ THIS. I urge you to immediately clear your cookies and cache, and even get a whole new browser. I enjoy Firefox, what about you? And, if you see any newish black Chevrolet Impalas, or strange pizza or plumbing vans, immediately leave town. They know that you know that they know that you know.

I'm a fan of some of Air America, but not dull Al. I really hate the right (and left) wing shows that take this all way too seriously.
This site, though, is FUNNY. Very refreshing.
I have to leave town now...
