    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.
    Perhaps this is why they are trying to push the Fairness Doctrine.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I have to agree with those who say that talk radio is just not a format that most liberals really care about. The demographics are simply not the same as Rush Limbaugh's listeners.

    Liberals dominate other formats...Academia, newspapers, blogs, movies, etc. I'd say they also dominate television news, with the exception of outright opinion shows, although I'm less sure about that one.

    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.
    LOL. OK, dude, whatever.

    Air America went under because it wasn't necessary. When you have CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, NPR, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, and on and on, there is no need for a "liberal" talk station.

    Once upon a time, the only conservative media out there was Rush Limbaugh and The Wall Street Journal. That was it, other than a few rogue columnists that wandered about.

    Conservative talk radio, and later the Fox News prime-time political shows, filled a massive void; hence, why they are successful.

    But what the established main-stream media didn't see coming was that conservative media was so much in demand, it has taken over their once optionless viewership.

    The MSM got careless, and they started making every hire from the northeast liberal establishment schools and circles. They blended into each other so much you can't tell the difference from one outlet to the next, and now they're paying the price.

    Air America wasn't just bad, left-wing programming; it was UNNECESSARY bad, left-wing programming.

    Most liberals care a lot more about who's winning American Idol and who's hooking up with Jon and Kate than they do a senate seat in Wisconsin. Democrats, by the way, WANT it that way.

    Liberal leaders focus on dominating academia (yay FDR, boo Reagan), science (global warming is going to kill us), government (we'll give you free healthcare and all the unemployment checks you want), and the media (we have a memo proving Bush didn't serve in the military) . Brainwashing is easy when you control those four things.

    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.



    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.

    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.
    Your post once again defies logic. Are you seriously trying to argue that Obama got elected because of left-wing talk propoganda? That's a good one.

    No. Propoganda is propoganda whether it be from the left or right. Right-wing radio thrives because right-wings love to listen to propoganda. Liberals generally have lives and don't sit around listening to the crap.

    I'll bet this thread will have more staying power than Air America.

    That's my point, liberals and conservatives have different forms of media that appeal to their fans. Liberals have academia/science/newspapers, and conservatives have radio/TV opinion shows. There's nothing sinister about appealing to your fans by using the media that they prefer.

    I don't see how it's any different than conservatives dominating talk radio or TV opinion shows.
