Bozell: "Newsweek and Air America - Perfectly Liberal Together"
Weve documented their left wing bias for years. The News in Newsweek has always been a joke. Their teaming up with the uber-liberal radio network removes all doubt.
Alexandria, VA Media Research Center President L. Brent Bozell, III today reacted with matter-of-fact amusement to the news that Newsweek magazine is partnering with liberal talk radio network Air America to syndicate their show Newsweek On Air.
This announcement comes the same week Newsweek uses its cover and the accompanying story to bash Rush Limbaugh, the undisputed king of syndicated talk radio and someone who is diametrically opposed ideologically to the magazine's new syndication partner.
When the Air America network was launched in 2004, Newsweek did a fawning, glowing three-page announcement story featuring host Al Franken, including a President Bush-mocking "photo illustration" of Franken standing on an aircraft carrier in a flight suit.
I am shocked SHOCKED that liberal Newsweek magazine has partnered with liberal Air America. Who would have known that the two would find so much common ground on which to build a business relationship? So not only is their current Rush Limbaugh-bashing cover an assault on their ideological opposition, its an attack on their radio competition.
And given the respective ratings, its an outstanding business decision. Clearly Newsweek wanted a radio partner whose listenership mirrors their readership minimal and declining rapidly.
Weve documented their left wing bias for years. The News in Newsweek has always been a joke. Their teaming up with the uber-liberal radio network removes all doubt. Newsweek and Air America perfectly liberal together.

How many people have been killed over the years directly due to “news” published in Newsweek?
How many were killed in riots due to the “koran flushing” articles published by Newsweek? Of course, these were later proven to be lies. But my guess is that those people are still dead.
more leftist than “liberal”.
You now need a high IQ and remarkable dexterity to find the articles among the ads in Newsweek. And the articles are so biased they make the ads look honest.
Well, they’ll double their audience now; it’ll be about two dozen now.
Newsweek is denying they’re streetcorner hookers.... insisting they’re well-heeled Escorts.
Girl: "You're a Presstitute!"
Newsweek: "No. We're News-Whores."
FR is very educational. I learn something every day.
For instance, until I read this post I DID NOT KNOW THAT NEWSWEAK WAS STILL PUBLISHED.
So now ERR Amerika and NewsWEAK are playing tagteam on Talk Radio? What a yoke?
