Atheism increase due to Al Franken; doc for choir only; time-shifting?

Today's exciting Al Franken round-up features the news that Stuart is indirectly responsible for the increase in atheism in "Walnut Creek, Berkeley, San Francisco and Silicon Valley" (but not the North Bay, where Midwestern values prevail): Meetings and rallies, once the province of older folk, now include younger people with tattoos and dreadlocks. The Internet,... Keep reading >>>

Gloria Wise scandal over! (except for criminal investigation)

Air America Radio was started with a "loan" of $875,000 from a city-financed Bronx charity, the Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club. Since that money was supposed to be spent on, you know, Boys and Girls in the Bronx and not to keep Al Franken in hair gel, an investigation by New York City soon... Keep reading >>>

Janeane Garofalo: Bill O'Reilly put me in estrus

In the latest issue of GQ, former Air America hostess and something or other Janeane Garofalo admits that when she first met Bill O'Reilly she was enraptured with sexual feelings and plunged into a deep state of extreme sexual excitement: Janeane Garofalo shares this recollection: "Literally one moment before you go on, he comes and...

Marconi radio awards: biased against Air America?

Every year, the National Association of Broadcasters gives out the Marconi Radio Awards to "recognize excellence in radio". If that's so, then why are none of the 21 winners in any way associated with Air America? Have George Bush or his minions gotten to the NAB, forcing them to ignore America's only real progressive alternative... Keep reading >>>

Will Fairness Doctrine save Air America?

From Jay Ambrose: ...The Fairness Doctrine went into effect in 1949 as a regulation of the Federal Communications Commission. It essentially said that stations had to provide opportunities for other sides to be heard if someone said something politically controversial on air. The consequence was a quietude strikingly at variance with this democracy of ours...... Keep reading >>>

Rev. James A. Forbes Jr. quits church

Who? What? Rev. James A. Forbes Jr. is the host of Air America Radio's "The Time is Now" program and the senior minister at Riverside Church in Manhattan. He's just retired, but apparently will continue with the program. The church is liberal and John D. Rockefeller Jr. donated money to build it. But, according to... Keep reading >>>

Will Air America file for bankruptcy or not?

It looks like the cat has left the barn, with RE offering nothing more than an "educated guess" that an internal faction that is attempting to gain (or regain) control of the network "leaked" this "news" to a major liberal blog site (knowing it would be taken seriously there) so as to immediately depress Air...

What might the post Air America landscape look like?

After the apocalypse, aka the selling of Air America's Aeron chairs on eBay, what might the "liberal" radio landscape look like? Perhaps something like the current (as of a few hours ago) lineup at Seattle's KPTK. All times Pacific: 3-6 AM: The Young Turks 6-9 AM: Stephanie Miller 9-12 PM: Thom Hartmann 12-3 PM: Ed...

Young Turks: new Air America Radio morning show

A group calling itself the "Young Turks" are supposedly Air America Radio's new morning show. So, why you ask, am I putting this announcement in the "Also Rans" category and not creating a new category for them? Well, let's just say things at AAR are a little "fluid". Or, solid as the case may be:... Keep reading >>>

"Changing the Media Changing America Forum"

Is there anything more life-affirming, awe-inspiring, educational, informative, and just downright good than watching a group of "progressives" sitting around opining on affairs of the day, specifically voter enfranchisement? Yes, there is: if they're doing it in Seattle and if the video is awash in warm, earthy tones. Via "Kian", we proudly offer this video... Keep reading >>>

ABC Disney anti-Democratic scheme discovered!

The reports on the Path to 9/11 ABC miniseries are coming in and I'm disgusted, sickened, and I feel physically ill. What would drive people to do something like this? As I was sitting in the dark wondering what to do and slowly chanting "Haters! Haters! Haters!" to myself, I suddenly - like a key... Keep reading >>>

Some of Al Franken's best employees have been People Of Color

What percentage of Al Franken's staff has been Of Color? A new highly-confusing and ultimately uninteresting kerfluffle indicates that - contrary to prior indications - that percentage may be slightly higher than statistically insignificant. In November, we offered "Al Franken vs. Affirmative Action", reporting on the book "Do As I Say (Not As I Do):... Keep reading >>>

Mike Malloy satirically suggested killing Muslims

Perhaps this was the real reason Mike Malloy was fired from Air America Radio. From the Monday, August 28 show where he was filling in for Randi Rhodes comes this purported transcript (via this): Ray: You were asking for a conservative or a bush supporter to call so I just thought I'd call. Mike [Malloy]:... Keep reading >>>

Air America-oriented "liberal" "humor"

Is there anything funnier than "liberal" "humor"? Wait, let me rephrase that: Is there any higher form of comedy than "liberal" "humor"? The answer, of course, is no. While "liberal" "humor" may not generate the guffaws of, say, Jerry Lewis pratfalls, what helps it rise above all other forms of comedy is that it educates... Keep reading >>>
