Sheldon Drobny pimps HuffPost competitor on HuffPost

I can't comment on every single post on the Huffington Post from AAR co-founder Sheldron Drobny, but this one is especially funny: I am a contributor to OpEdNews.com, a thoughtful progressive site that is run by Rob Kall. He is a good friend and has always been a true believer in the "cause." This is... Keep reading >>>

Franken PAC ("Midwest Values") gets megabucks from Hollywood celebs

Chair botherer and alleged comedian Al Franken has a political action committee completely inappropriately named the "Midwest Values PAC". Now we've learned that it's raised around a half a million dollars, mostly from a ragged collection of Hollywood lefties: * Larry David (apparently has a cable TV show; wife opposes global warming while flying on...

Did Karl Rove steal Sheldon Drobny's thoughts, fluids?

That remains undetermined. However, here's the final paragraph of Sheldon Drobny's latest HuffPost essay: So my conclusion is that the bloggers who violently hate... Keep reading >>>

Which Communist Party is Mike Malloy affiliated with?

I don't usually do this, but this site has received a hit from a search for 'AAR's Mike Malloy affiliated with communist party'. Obviously, that person was looking for which version of the Commies Malloy is associated with. Frankly, I don't know, so I'm turning to my loyal readers for help. Is he with the... Keep reading >>>

AAR fans discuss AAR in strictest confidence

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a special place that "liberals" could go to in order to discuss all the failings of Air America, without having to worry about AAR anti-fans finding out about it? Well, here's that very special place: ...Half the ads I have heard on the several different AAR stations I've... Keep reading >>>

Janeane Garofalo quits Air America Radio

It's official: Janeane Garofalo is no longer on Air America Radio. The formerly-cute actress will now be pursuing "other projects". While some might want to make a big deal about this, there's really nothing there. She herself had hinted about her departure since May, and she hasn't really been a big part of the show...

Air America to get cash infusion from Soros' buddies?

The article "A New Alliance Of Democrats Spreads Funding" reports on the secretive "Democracy Alliance", a coalition of nearly a hundred stretch limousine "liberals" who are donating millions in order to create their own "liberal" infrastructure.

Air America infomercials: $250 for an hour on KOMY

You can apparently replace an hour of the Majority Report (featuring Sam Seder and the now-mostly-exited Janeane Garofalo) with your own infomercial for just $250 on KOMY 1340FM in Santa Cruz/Salinas/Monterey Bay: Many of the pre-Air America shows on KOMY were reported pay-for-play, and the weekends and noon hour also are paid programs, advertising things...

Air America, religion to collide on "The Time is Now"

Air America has a new show called "The Time is Now" hosted by one Rev. James A. Forbes Jr. He's 70, far-left, and the leader of a congregation in Manhattan. He's also... religious. So, expect him to be ripped a new one by AAR's "liberal" listeners.... Keep reading >>>

Marc Maron cancelled... again!

Former "Morning Sedition" co-host Marc Maron has been cancelled from his Los Angeles-based basically-local show to which he was shuttled after MS was cancelled. Now, that show has in turn met its fate: The satiric "Harrison on the Edge" will join KTLK-AM's (1150) night time line-up beginning Monday. The show, which bills itself as "Progressive...

Air America Radio (AAR): A Metaphor For Liberal Disunity

No, I'm not the author of the headline, liberal loon, Democratic embarassment, loose cannon, and AAR co-founder Sheldon Drobny is: ...It is the fact that that most of the wealthy liberals will not support it financially that prevents AAR from doing many of the things that would make it very successful. I am not suggesting... Keep reading >>>

"Lefty KQKE is still struggling"

KQKE (960 AM) ("The Quake") is Air America's Hayward/Union City/Vast-Empty-Areas-Off-The-880 offering, and as reported here their ratings are still struggling after two years. Now certainly, if they can't make it anywhere they won't even be able to make it in the San Francisco Bay Area, but in any case one clue to their plight might... Keep reading >>>

Randi Rhodes: Ken Lay was murdered by Bush administration

I was expecting to hear something like this from DU, but I thought Air America might take the higher road. I guess I was wrong: ...I first heard [about Ken Lay's death] via a "comic" bit that was over-the-top, and pretty tasteless, even by my admittedly loose political correctness standards. What followed was even dumber... Keep reading >>>

Janeane Garofalo is on "jury duty"

The Majority Report might have been canceled and Janeane Garofalo might be out of a job that she wasn't drawing a salary for, according to the Radio Equalizer. Since very few people at the MR blog or anywhere else seem to have noticed, let's speculate among ourselves:... Keep reading >>>
