    So who's the liar now?

    But a spokeswoman for Air America said: "No decision has been taken to make any filing of any kind.
    "If Air America had filed for bankruptcy every time someone rumoured it to be doing so, we would have ceased to exist long ago. It may be frustrating to some that this hasn't happened."

    Nothing to discuss in yor comment NEM, just another liberial trying to help his friends avoid taking responsibility for their failure by blaming others.

    But if you insist, your response is really pathetic.

    :rofl: Am I the only one that enjoy the irony of Nem doing exactly what he accuses others of doing in the very same post..? This post is hilarious..!!

    Nothing like a little Chapter 11 bankrupcy to show how great things are at Air America, huh...?

    It just goes to prove that liberalism works best on bumper stickers. If you, God forbid, actually have to discuss liberalism at length, the vast majority of people quickly realize how much a load of bullcrap it is.

    Hey, they're only like $15 million in the hole. Maybe they should move to a liberal mark....oh, that's right, they were in NYC. doh!


    Liberal radio doesn't sell cuz it's senseless banter.

    Host: "Let's go to Hugh Jass from Uranus..."

    Caller: "Bush sucks, Save the children!"

    Host: "excellent point"

    heh nice spin NEM, its still bankruptcy regardless of how you spin it. Means in simple terms their liabibilties exceed their assets........and they can't pay their bills. Unlike the dems and recently the Repubs in congrees they can't just borrow their way out of trouble.

    No message = no audience = no ratings = no revenue = Air America.

    Actually, I've read that most liberals listen to NPR. How could Air America possibly compete with that goverment funded juggernaut? The reason conservative radio is successful is because it filled a void that wasn't there before. Air America was just trying to compete in an already saturated marketplace for their perspective.

    I bet Rush Limbaugh would have let Franken & Jeanne Garafool borrow a few bucks if they had asked him :singing: :singing: :singing: :singing:

    Bullcrap. If NPR ever had to compete with other radio stations on a level playing field (instead of just being funded by the government) they'd be even more bankrupt than Air Amerikkka.

    Lets go to Bill O'reilly for comment:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH....Bill?.....Bill? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...

    Lets go to Babs Streisand for her take on this:

    Babs?...........SHUT the F-ck UP!

    errrrr.....Osama,any comment?

    OBL:"Jihadists around the world are saddened that Franken,Garafalo,and the other kiddos at Air America have been silenced by the Great Satan,their input will be sorely missed,especially during this crucial week of the AXIS of EVIL Fantasy Football League!

    Oh,and..........DEATH to AMERIKA!

    Problem with Air America is that they had too many boring people. Rush & Savage survive because they know how to push buttons... Al Franken doesn't even have a button.

    If they are indeed organizing ... they need to find some lefties full of piss and vinegar
    and that's the problem ... how many lefties are the fiery type???

    NEM ... HERE'S YOUR CHANCE...YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    Do you even listen to yourself before hitting reply?

    Good Lord, you're a hate-filled blithering idiot.

    What are the three people that listened to it going to do now?

    I know that y'all are going to be shocked that Air America didn't even get on the radio down here.

    Contrary to the general belief on this thread. AAR is broadcasting like right at this very second. They haven't gone yet.

    Follow this link to listen for yourself if you don't believe me.

    I don't think I saw any posts in this thread that said Air Amerika was off the air. We said they filed for Ch. 11 bankrupcy, but I don't see anyone saying they were off the air. Only a really simple minded, ignorant person would confuse "filing for Chapter 11" with "going off the air". Perhaps that explains your confusion.

    Granted, them being on the air seems more and more like a temporary situation. I personally enjoy how badly they are screwing their #1 cheerleader, Al Franken. I look forward to seeing how much he is willing to let himself continue being screwed.

    You named yourself after a Star Wars character and you call me stupid?

    Considering how excited you are in this thread, I think Schadenfreude might have been a more appropriate nic.

    Franken & Garafool are going off the air for one reason and one reason only, "NOBODY LISTENED TO THEM".
