Air America to 'Relaunch' With Focus on 2008

NEW YORK (AP) -- Air America today announced a high-profile lineup of presidential candidates, political players and celebrities for next week as part of the liberal talk network's "relaunch.''

Democratic candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards, along with notables like Robert Redford, Paul Newman and Gloria Steinem, are among the more than 30 guests scheduled.

New shows are also being added to the schedule, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Arianna Huffington and Bob Kerrey. The network also redesigned its Web site, where hosts will regularly blog along with a newly-hired blogger.

Republican Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the subject of persistent presidential speculation, was scheduled to tape his interview today, facing questions from a former political foe, Mark Green.

Green, who lost to Bloomberg on his first run for City Hall in 2001, is now running Air America with his brother, Stephen Green. They took it over this year in an attempt to revive the network, which had been losing money.

Air America is broadcast on 64 stations nationwide and on XM satellite.


TOPICS: Extended News; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: airamerica; goodmoneyafterbad; liberals; pipedream; radio
And the crowd ( both of their listeners ) goes wild. Since their bankruptcy bailout there have been few articles about AAR. Notice that there are no new stations announced with this "rebirth".

Ok, so it will be 24/7 campaign commercials for Democrats. Will this count as campaign contributions?

More money down the toilet.

On second thought, the more they waste on this, the better. Leaves them less money to spend on their candidates. ;-)

I am guessing they have a different business model this time, ‘cause it won’t be funded by commercials.

Considering their audience must be made up of welfare cheats, I’m sure they’ll do just fine advertising back braces, tarot cards, 7-in-1 Kitchen Tools and all that other crap Jerry Springer types love.

Arianna Huffington by herself should be able to get rid of 30% of whatever listeners they have left. Even if a person agrees with her, her voice is so annoying that people will seek out alternative programming like Culture Club marathons.

Huffington’s accent will also work against her, and them. No matter how far to the left a person might be, it strikes a chord deep when a foreigner trashes your own country. Stock tip: Don’t buy.

Once the "Fairness Doctrine" is passed, then every station that wants to legally broadcast 3 hours of Rush Limbaugh will have to broadcast 3 hours of opposing views. And the New Air America will be there waiting for the calls.

Liberal talk radio finds no takers in the talk radio market. I don't think they will be any more successful the second time around.

Some rich leftist is funding it.

Whenever I see a Progressive Insurance ad on, I usually yell at the TV “I’d rather cut my b@!!s off!”

And I mean it.

Yes, that was my question: Who is funding this turkey?

Soros seems as good a guess as any, but hasn’t he already thrown a ton of cash down that rathole?

Once the "Fairness Doctrine" is passed,

That was my first reaction too. If the rats want the "Fairness Doctrine" passed again, why are they wasting money on Err Amerika? They own all the major TV networks now.

It’s simply another way for George Soros to donate to the DNC to get around campaign finance laws.

Exactly!

And if they are not a commercial concern but rather a political one, does that bring them under McCain-Feinburg?

And if it does, how can they get away with this?

Oh, wait. These are Democrats, right?

Silly me.

Democrats are ABOVE the law.

How could I forget?

For those who don't know, Progressive isn't just only a name for that company, it is also their belief. They're as liberal as the day is long.

So what was the caption?  Suggestions below.


"Who's got the Viagra?"
"'Even a caveman could do it,' you said."
"We'll dedicate it to Bill Clinton."
"Get rid of your trifocals, Edgar."
