Comrades: the reactionary forces of evil-doing have now gone too far. Not only were they responsible for causing the bankruptcy of Air America, but even WWRC in Washington DC - formerly an Air America Radio station known as "Obama 1260" - has been bought by the ultra-conservative Salem Communications (press release link). The station will be all ultra-reich-wing talk with some "news".
This is yet another sad day for Amerika. But, wait, it gets worse:
In addition to its radio broadcast business, Salem owns a non-broadcast media division. Salem Web Network is a provider of online Christian and conservative-themed content and streaming and includes websites such as Christian faith focused Christianity.com, Christian living focused Crosswalk.com(R), Online Bible Study at BibleStudyTools.com, and Christian radio ministries online at OnePlace.com. Additionally Salem owns conservative news leader Townhall.com(R) and conservative political blog, HotAir.com providing conservative commentary, news and blogging. Salem Publishing(TM) circulates Christian and conservative magazines such as Homecoming(R) The Magazine, YouthWorker Journal(TM), The Singing News, FaithTalk Magazine, Preaching and Townhall Magazine(TM). Xulon Press(TM) is a provider of self publishing services targeting the Christian audience.
