Air America Idiot Update

Sure, right.
New CEO Danny Goldberg:

Re “Why the Liberals Can’t Keep Air America From Spiraling In,” Commentary, April 18: Brian Anderson’s attack on Air America Radio is petulant and inaccurate, an indication that conservatives are having a hard time dealing with a robust alternative to the monopoly they had on talk radio since the 1980s.

Regardless of how much Anderson and his ilk whistle past the graveyard, there is a large and growing audience for liberal talk. Every one of the original stations that picked up Air America has experienced dramatic increases in ratings. Our audience more than quadrupled what it was just nine months ago. We are on in 53 markets, including 16 of the top 20.

Sheesh, even Joey Ramone knew you were a load of shit, D-Berg, and he liked everybody. But this…c’mon, dude, pile it on all you want, but WLIB was a rock solid, never wavering 1.3 before your clown car took over their signal, and now, with all the free publicity and yearning from the media elites for your success, one year down the tube, you’re buttmonkey stuck at 1.2.

A recent study by the independent Paragon Media showed that in markets where we are on the air, the names Al Franken and Air America have a greater familiarity than any other talk-radio names except Rush Limbaugh. Our Internet stream reaches 1.3 million separate listeners a week, more than any conservative show. Is Air America having an impact? Ask Tom DeLay.

Nobody gives a shit about “name recognition,” asshole. Ask the same people: “Ever heard of Mario Coumo?” and they’d probably say “Yes,” but that doesn’t mean they’d listen to his boring ass on a radio feed. History’s proved that one. Your crew just had the most massive free advertisement campaign, ever, instituted on their behalf. And Arbitron called you flatlined on the dial. Your crew had an HBO feature, and you didn’t even get a ‘wearing clothes and rubbing up a gainst an Arbitron household’s Mommy’s rump’ bump. You’re channel is just a niche, bitch. Get good with that fact. Limbaugh eats you for breakfast and then plays eighteen holes. You may as well be broadcasting in fucking Guam, for all the challenge your shitride gives the guy. Hell, even Hannity kicks your entire slate’s ass.

You guys, whether you want to admit it or not, are totally beholden to Clear Channel. They put you on those stations–in many cases making you fuckers pay for the privilege–and they own your fucking soul at this point, because those investers who have been propping you fuckers up now want some payback on their speculative dimes.
