In yet another sign of trouble for Air America Radio, the liberal talk network entering its fifth chaotic week on the air, co-founder and chairman Evan Cohen resigned Thursday, as did vice-chairman and investor Rex Sorensen.

The CHICAGO TRIBUNE is planning to report in fresh editions: The company also failed to make its scheduled payroll, leaving its staff roughly 100 radio personalities, writers, and producers unpaid until Thursday.

The departures of Cohen, a former political operative from Guam who was among the network's initial investors, and Sorenson, an investor who owns radio stations in Guam, mark the second executive shake-up at the fledgling network in as many weeks.


Damn, I was hoping they'd last longer than this and waste more liberal money!

Makes me wonder why Soros just doesn't bail them out.

Like typical liberals rather than folding up shop and closing down it appears that they just fail to pay the underlings in their little franchise while (i'm sure) making certain that the people in charge get a check. Afterall people should be willing to DONATE their time for the noble cause right?

And it looks like the Union guys are holding the bag. Weren't liberals and Democrats supposed to be the champions of the working man?

Can we all get together and give them a big, hearty, and satirical, “Awe, too bad.”

Which is a thought.
Look up their phone numbers and give them a ring. Call them up and say, “We heard you couldn’t make your payroll. Awe, too bad”, and then hang up.

As I once said;
"Rule Number One: You are not as popular as you think you are."

This is not their fault, it is the vast right wing conspiracy's fault. (mark my words, that is what they will blame this on)

Serves those folks right, for running their business on a wing and a prayer. Don't tell'em, but I don't think they know that the world is radically different after the 9/11/01 WTC/Pentagon attack.

It must be remembered that under true socialism as practiced in the former Soviet Union,those at the top of the Party apparatus received benifits not available to those "Outter party members"like a guaranteed paycheck.
