Air America RIP

In what’s turned out to be a fairly brutal week for Democrats, the liberal national radio network, Air America Radio shut off its microphones today and announced the company is filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, just a few weeks shy of its sixth anniversary.

Of course, there’s much triumphant crowing from all the right-wing blogs about AAR’s demise, although few have coherently reconciled it with one of their most treasured conspiracy theories; that of the so-called “liberal media” that the likes Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and countless other “conservative” blowhards are always incessantly whining about on their dominant radio and television programs.


It’s hard to believe this isn’t a joke, but apparently the organizers of All-American Basketball Alliance hope to start its inaugural season this summer with a 12-team lineup composed only of white, American-born men. According to a news release from would-be commissioner Don “Moose” Lewis, only players who are natural-born U.S. citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.
