Air America Goes Bankrupt and Off the Air!

Can you hear the sound of Taps in the distance?

Air America just went up in smoke.  In the last hour they have announced their filing for bankruptcy.  If you go to their website you will find a letter of sadness.

“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.”- Air America

Air America helped the careers of now Senator Al Franken and MsNBCer Rachel Maddow.  That accomplishment is about all they can claim when it comes to success.  The radio station was launched in 2004 to be a leftist response to the Rush Limbaughs and Sean Hannitys of talk radio.  They failed from the very beginning to come close to matching conservative talk listenership and never caught on.

The passing of Air America is another reminder that our nation is center right and the ideas of Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi will never take root in this great country.
