Air America Radio

Remember all of the media attention AAR got when it was first coming out? I remember seeing stories in all of the major papers. It looks like now they are asking their listeners for donations to support their businesses. Apparently the free market couldn't support them so they have to appeal to people's altruism. I heard about this and Googled the story to see the coverage:

There are only a few news outlets mentioning this: about.com, NewsMax, FoxNews, WorldNetDailey, and a few obscure local papers. Coverage was similar when they borrowed money from some Boyscouts or something crazy like that. Pretty amazing.

I think we should give them tax-payer money...we could use a tax-payer financed liberal radio network...oh wait....nevermind.

Acutally from what I heard it was around $800,000 from the Boys and Girls Club of the Bronx (or some place in New york.) But that was over the summer and the board of the Boys and Girls club did not approve it and want it back.
