    Air America was totally effective, it got that idiot elected to the Senate.

    Rush, Hannity, Beck, Savage, Boortz...

    They seem to be doing just fine...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It's a completely different demographic. Rush and more conservative commentators have a much older demographic, who still listen to the radio, read the newspaper, and leave their TV on news all day long. More liberal commentators have to focus on connecting to younger demographics through websites, podcasts, online streaming, and RSS feeds.

    That's not to say substance is a requirement as well. I tried listening to Air America twice and couldn't last 30 minutes.

    The thread they were hanging from finally snapped.

    They're blaming their demise on the decrease in ad revenue that has plagued all of talk radio over the past couple years - but given that Air America didn't have much competition, the real problem was that nobody wanted to listen.
    Didn't Maddow go on to host her own show, and Frankin become a senitor?
    If they were two of the main draws, the loss of them would seriously curtail the add revenue.

    Obviously it went out of business because conservative talk radio kept it from having a fair shake...

    What? Isn't that part of the whole argument against conservative talk radio and why it must be destroyed, cause its not allowing for the other side to be presented?

    The purpose of Air America was to get that dingaling elected to the Senate, and it worked. It's usefulness is now over.

    Re: Liberal talk-radio network Air America to cease operations

    The reason Air America went out of business is because it sucked. I tried listening a few times but I was turned off by the hatred and spin that I heard in most shows I listened to.

    I guess I wouldn't make a good Limbaugh, Beck, Maddow, or Olbermann listener either.

    Most likely it went under because us Liberals do not like listening to propoganda....whether it be from the far left or the far right.
    Right-wing radio does well because their target market breathes on that type of propoganda.

    Talk radio is nothing but propoganda.....I'm actually glad to see less of it on the air, even if it was left-wing propoganda.

    I've never listened to Air America. I subscribe to Sirius XM so that I can listen to music without having to hear people talk on my radio. Some anus speed yelling at me to buy a Toyota doesn't fly.

    Guess that's why Obama got elected and now breaks promises on a daily basis. Disney, Liberals are the posterchild for believing propaganda, your candidates count on it, Obama's hope and change rhetoric proven to be just that..rhetoric...and you ALL swallowed it hook line and sinker.

    Right-wing radio does well because their target market breathes on that type of propoganda.
    And yet couldn't get McCain nor hardly any Republican elected in 2006 or 2008.....while the Senate and House moved Left...and Obama was elected...entirely on propaganda.

    Talk radio is nothing but propoganda.....I'm actually glad to see less of it on the air, even if it was left-wing propoganda.
    Air America off the air is no surprise, Soros and the Left facilitating it and keeping it afloat for years now, this link from 2006.

    The Radio Equalizer: Brian Maloney: Air America, George Soros, Mike McCurry, Peter Lewis, Democracy Alliance

    Through an emergency bailout plan, a coalition of wealthy liberal political activists are poised to at least temporarily save Air America Radio. On the way: as much as $8 million in sorely-needed cash to fund ongoing operations.
    Disney, next time you've got a post that absolutely flies in the face of reality...like this last jewel of yours...throw it right out here. Spin it a lil as well, don't make it so easy for me to flame it right offhand. Your posts amusing and interesting just....well....canon fodder for those of us who know what's going on.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
