Air Amerika Files Bankruptcy, Can Libs Handle Money?

The folks at Air Amerika, after denying it for the last month, have filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11. AA is a radio station that was supposed to be the liberal answer to conservative talk. They were the ones who would compete with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and G Gordon Liddy. Unfortunately, the idea never caught on among the liberal community and AA did not get listeners. Rush probably has more listeners in a half hour than AA has all week. There have been hints of impropriety and suggestions that money was not spent correctly and finally the station went down the tubes.

The station employs people like Al Frankin who think that they know everything. Frankin is the man who should have stayed on TV doing his comedy bits though I never found him funny top begin with. In any event, Frankin would have done better on TV than with the comedy that has become his venture into talk radio. I have never heard Frankin’s show (an neither have very many others apparently) but I have heard him do interviews. He constantly tells us how liberals have a better idea and are more fiscally responsible. We are reminded of the evil of George Bush because Frankin hates the President and goes out of his way to insult him along with most other conservatives (though I would argue that Bush is not a conservative).

So, Frankin has been telling us all along how the donks have the plan. This must be the same plan that they all talk about but never expand upon. I want to know, if the donks are so good at managing things, how it is that the liberal radio station Air Amerika is bankrupt. They have about 4 million in assets and owe about 21 million. This is very similar to the way the liberals in Congress run things. They keep acting like there is an endless pot of money. The difference is that Congress can, and when Democrats are in charge does, raise our taxes to generate more revenue. AA is stuck with what they have but if they had a supply of money that had no say, they too would extort as much as they needed to stay in business. The Democrats love to raise taxes and they act as if it is the only way to get things done. They truly believe that they know better what to do with your money than you do.

If the Democrats can claim that Republicans are soft on national security (a lie if ever there was one) and then make the claim they can not even protect children (in light of the Foley scandal) then it is reasonable to say that Democrats are not good with money as evidenced by the way Air Amerika handled its finances. After all, AA espouses liberal philosophies and the way they ran the station into the ground is indicative of how donks handle money.

    The radio station was started out of hatred for the right .. it was doomed from the beginning.

    The real question is: Can liberals make money when they actually have to be funny, witty, charasmatic, truthful AND engage the opposition with fair and repectful opportunity for real debate all in the same format, like talk radio? The anwer is a resounding NO! They aren’t funny, they aren’t very witty, they CANNOT be truthful, and they are hardly ever repectfull to those that oppose their viewpoints. Some are charistmatic, but so was Adolph Hitler. They do much better when they can control everthing, like the Leftist News Media (LNM) does through print and TV broadcasting.
