is DEAD!!! Bankrupt and shut down operations as of today!!!
Citing the "perfect storm" of bad economy, etc. Hmmm....wonder why Fox and Rush are doing OK??? Maybe because they are so completely out of touch with mainstream America??? Just too bad they didn't take down Franken and Maddow with them...

Thought this was funny!! I found this article tonight on Democratic Underground. It seems now they are eating there own LOL

Coakly loses, AirAmerica dies, the Supremes sell America to the highest bidder

What more can go wrong? Obama namby pamby's up to corporate Rethuglicans, there's no limit to our commitment in Afghan, or Iraq, or Haiti, h

I'm as liberal as they get, but didn't America just sell itself out to: either to .......

The highest bidder, Wallmart and Microsoft now own America

OR

Did we just send another hundreds of billions in committment to Haiti, to make sure those Haitians with guns we supplied them with get to make that island a ****ing harbinger of what Manhattan will look like in 10 years?

I'm so sick of people trying to defend Obama, he's just a man, and a pretty stupid man, surrounded by fools who would NEVER be elected.

If Amercica is this stupid, perhaps Americans deserve to die as fooolishly as they elected this wussl after 8 years of being so talem om by Bush.

Americans, pampered and poorly educated...maybe they deserve to let China take over. America was nice while it had leaders with balls and brains.........no more.

And to the foolish people who still want this fake to govern, I say, I worked for this man for six months, and he was all the promise of change, and he just looks like George W Bush now. Such a f$#@up!

Is Air America supposed to be code for MSNBC?

EDIT:

Guess not, forgive my ignorance.

Air America
It is with the greatest regret, on behalf of our Board, that we must announce that Air America Media is ceasing its live programming operations as of this afternoon, and that the Company will file soon under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code to carry out an orderly winding-down of the business.
The very difficult economic environment has had a significant impact on Air America's business. This past year has seen a "perfect storm" in the media industry generally. National and local advertising revenues have fallen drastically, causing many media companies nationwide to fold or seek bankruptcy protection. From large to small, recent bankruptcies like Citadel Broadcasting and closures like that of the industry's long-time trade publication Radio and Records have signaled that these are very difficult and rapidly changing times.
Those companies that remain are facing audience fragmentation as a result of new media technologies, are often saddled with crushing debt, and have generally found it difficult to obtain operating or investment capital from traditional sources of funding. In this climate, our painstaking search for new investors has come close several times right up into this week, but ultimately fell short of success.
With radio industry ad revenues down for 10 consecutive quarters, and reportedly off 21% in 2009, signs of improvement have consisted of hoping things will be less bad. And though Internet/new media revenues are projected to grow, our expanding online efforts face the same monetization and profitability challenges in the short term confronting the Web operations of most media companies
When Air America Radio launched in April, 2004 with already-known personalities like Al Franken and then-unknown future stars like Rachel Maddow, it was the only full-time progressive voice in the mainstream broadcast media world. At a critical time in our nation's history — when dissent on issues such as the Iraq war were often denounced as "un-American" — Air America and its talented team helped millions of Americans remember the importance of compelling discussion about the most pivotal events and decisions of our generation.
Through some 100 radio outlets nationwide, Air America helped build a new sense of purpose and determination among American progressives. With this revival, the progressive movement made major gains in the 2006 mid-term elections and, more recently, in the election of President Barack Obama and a strongly Democratic Congress.
Laws have changed for the better thanks to this revival.....but all the same our company cannot escape the laws of economics. So we intend a rapid, orderly closure over the next few days. All current employees will be paid through today, January 21. A severance package will be offered tomorrow to full-time current employees with more than six months of tenure.
We will strive to assist affiliates and partners in achieving a smooth transition. Starting at 6 pm EST today, we will provide our affiliates, listeners and users a selection of encore programming until 9 pm EST on Monday, January 25, at which time Air America programming will end.
We are proud that Air America's mission lives on through the words and actions of so many former radio hosts who are active today in progressive causes and media nationwide. In the years ahead, as we look back, we should all be proud of our passionate determination to assure that our nation's progressive voice would be heard loud and clear. Through the hard work and dedication of current staff, and those who preceded you, a lasting legacy was forged which will now continue through other voices and venues.
Thank you.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

they're the ones that pressed (what was it called???) the Fairness Doctrine???....to get Con radio removed or restricted from the radio because there was no Liberal view being broadcast and the Libs brought suit because there was no Fair and Balanced broadcasting on the radio. I'm pretty sure that's how Air America was born. Too funny it's gone already and Con radio just gets bigger everyday.
Personally, my favorite is Neil Boortz. Idiots here changed their platform from Con Radio (with all the big names) to 24 hr. Mexican music...just like that, overnight.

Air America was Progressive Radio that turned on Obama for his back room deals. Please watch the following video as it explains their anger at Obama. They really believed in Obama,

true, but they were in trouble from the start. Most Libs don't listen to much radio, as most radio listening is done in your car....ON YOUR WAY TO WORK....

It couldn't have been Bush's fault! He was busy causing earthquakes by shooting holes in the ozone layer so that the oil companies could get to the oil in Haiti easier.
