Air America, the left’s answer to Rush Limbaugh is now silent. Beginning life in 2004 with their “bash Bush” format, and changing after the election of President Obama in 2008 to the “blame Bush” format, they have now proved to be as irrelevant as the “progressive” movement itself.
Most Conservatives warned them they are doomed to fail, despite massive amounts of money tossed in by wealthy elitists on the left. The total lack of valid ideas and a desire to recycle failed Socialist ideology leaves no room for intelligent discussion. Combined with the fact that the best and brightest hosts they could find were Rachel Maddow and Al Frankin, a pair that definitely have a face for radio, it comes as no surprise.
And as Glenn Beck said, they plan on a “best of” Air America radio show today from 5:59 PM until 6:00 PM.
Though Beck did not say what that fun packed minute would contain, one must assume it will be the reading of the statement that they were filing Chapter 7 and liquidating.
What an ironic week for this to happen.
It would seem that the only way to keep progressives on the air is forcing stations to carry them using the “fairness” doctrine. But, as the old saying goes, if a liberal spews at the mouth and no one listens, are they still spewing?
In a related note, the UN decided to drop the deadline for Global Warming action. Perhaps the cessation of hot air and gasses from “Air America” have returned the climate to normal.
