Silence is golden!

February 7, 2007

Hi Brit,

That sound you don’t hear is the liberal chatter presented by the talk radio network Air America.  The reason you don’t hear it is that they went belly up, Air America Fire Sale.  The reason for their dismal failure wasn’t a lack of words.  After all, Al Franken alone produces more than enough hot air to fill up a normal broadcasting schedule.  No, they flopped because their target audience, knee jerk liberals, don’t listen to talk radio.  Radical left shows have been tried time and time again in markets all across the country with the same result, no one listens.  Of course, not being believers in capitalism, liberals have trouble understanding the nature of the problem, so they just keep on throwing money at it.

And now, a moment of silence for the dearly departed…………..

Speaking of double standards…

Hi Brit,

You may not be aware of the nature of our information distribution here in the States, seeing as how your Government has so much control of yours.  On one hand, we have the broadcast TV networks, which, in general, have a decidedly liberal slant on the news.  On the other hand, the radio broadcast news and commentary shows, have the opposite slant.  Over the last few election cycles, this has proved to be a great advantage to the Republican Party.  A few years ago (2,3,4?) a liberal coalition with Evil Rich backing, decided to start a radio show group with a liberal slant, in an attempt to counter the conservative advantage.  It was called Air America, and, at its peak, was carried on eighty something stations out of several thousand.  It went bankrupt last year and has finally given up the ghost and folded yesterday.  It is interesting to note that this death was not mentioned in the main stream liberal press.  However, it has had a side effect.  One of the failed stars is running for office, Official: Al Franken to Make Senate Run in Minnesota.  In normal circumstances I would say this is funny, however, the citizens of Minnesota are just strange enough that Al may have a chance.
