I used to be really into AAR

From 2004 through 2007.  Since 2007 then the original talent had largely been axed.  The last best thing about Air America was Break Room Live with Marc Maron and Sam Seder. RIP.

It is good. There will be a small change for the better to have a post button above as well, ad a shading of it to make it look like this more than it does with a yellow shade. Also, the preview and new posting features for the diaires (better youtube, images) and frontpage posts will be done shortly too. Much better forms in general, for straight html posting too. Also, first step of the new profile/dashboard page will be up soon, with anyone logged in having their "user bar" up atop the sight.  We have great plans!

ever since...

Randi Rhodes called Hillary Clinton a "f*in' Cu&t" and Ed Schultz ranted against her and while bowing to O ~ I never listened again.

Never on AirAmerica...

Never on AirAmerica...

Ed Shultz

Never on AirAmerica...

AirAmerica died years ago.  This was only the doctor pronouncing the official time of death.

I agree

And the outfit which puts out Miller and Shultz formerly aired Thom Hartman.  They'll probably take him back.  And Maddow.

Malloy and Seder are probably history, at least at the national level.  They were too much the "anti-Savage" and not enough analysis.  To strident.

Hartmann's already back with them...

He's syndicated by DialGlobal, which used to be known as the Jones Network.  They have a stable of talk shows stretching the spectrum, but with progressives outnumbering conservatives by at least two-to-one.

I just hope they sign up Ron Reagan, whose show was the best thing still remaining with AAM before they pulled the plug.

ever since -

AA canned Rhodes after that remark, and it wasn't even made on the radio.  She is now independently syndicated and doing well.
