Air America's Groundhog Day / State of the Union joke

Air America Radio is famous for something! Namely, this "joke": This year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address occur on the same day.

Bobbing cork Mike Malloy shining light brightly on truth

A writer named Sheila Samples provides an extolment - nay, lionization - nay, idolization - of Mad Mike Malloy in "Who will tell the people?" Mike Malloy is the canary in the political coalmine -- the bane of the Bush administration and of hypocrites of all stripes. He is a liberal gadfly whose light shines... Keep reading >>>

"Is Mike Malloy over the top when he calls the GOP the American Nazi Party?"

However, in Alternate Dimention DUmmie, the current results are 279 votes for "Yes", a whopping total of 88% of respondents. Only 12 votes for "No", for just 4%.

Air America Radio and radical extremists

AAR's new vice president of news is one Felipe Luciano, a "black Puerto Rican" who has "worked at WNBC/Ch. 4, WCBS/Ch. 2 and Fox News. He's hosted radio shows at WRVR, WLIB and WWRL". And: He's been equally busy outside the media. In the '60s, he was a founder of the Young Lords party and... Keep reading >>>

Indecisive Al Franken not committed to Minnesotans

Al Franken must have the best publicist in the world. It must be that, because there's no such thing as the liberal media, and thus there's only one way to explain why there have been so many non-news stories over the past year reporting that Stuart was considering a Senate run. The latest in this... Keep reading >>>

Laura Flanders + The Nation = "RadioNation". Who funds it?

One of Air America Radio's lesser known hosts, Laura Flanders, has a new name for her show: RadioNation. The second part of the name is because it's a collaboration with The Nation magazine. We're informed that this show appears on both the AAR network, and on "noncommercial radio stations nationwide". Is AAR just giving it... Keep reading >>>

KXXT: Air America doing a reverse Phoenix

Rumor has it that KXXT, Air America's outlet in Phoenix, has been sold to a Christian broadcaster. Therefore, that station will almost immediately be conducting a long-overdue exorcism and Randi, Al, Janeane, Mike, and the rest of the gang will be going off the dry, hot air. But, compared to some of their other programming,... Keep reading >>>

Franken show will not be "overflowing with Minneapolis flavor"

Al Franken is finally - dozens of press articles later - making the big move to Minneapolis. They're building a studio in a downtown office building just for him. Given that Air America Radio brags about their new million-dollar New York City studio, one wonders how much that cost. And: "We'll be celebrating the fact... Keep reading >>>
