    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 13, 2006
    Air America to Declare Bankruptcy Friday

    So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night!

    UPDATE: Please add a question mark to that headline, Radio Equalizer now says the bankruptcy story may have been a "dirty trick". Below is how we originally reported the story...

    UPDATE: Think Progress has now retracted their story and apologized. Brian Mulroney of Radio Equalizer has the details.

    In what can only be a disturbing development for Keith Olbermann's attempt to turn his MSNBC show into a video version of Air America Radio, the floundering libreal talk radio network began laying off employees and firing radio show hosts in anticpation of yet another bankruptcy filling which is now expected by the end of the week. Among the casuaties, morning show host Jerry Springer.

    It was not immediately clear whether AAR will remain on the air after this week.

    The Soros-funded Center for American Progress broke the news on their ThinkProgress blog moment ago in a post that is clearly an attempt at a "pre-emptive strike" against right-wing critics including talking points on how Air America Radio "succeeded" because it "created progressive talk radio format" and, in a classic bit of OlbyLogic, because the most successful liberal talk show hosts were not associated with Air America Radio.

    UPDATE (h/t Drudge): My buddy Eric Deggans of the St. Pete Times "told" Newsmax that in an email, Air America spokesperson Jamie Horn "denied" the rumor, saying:

    "If Air America had filed for bankruptcy every time someone rumored it to be doing so, we would have ceased to exist long ago. It may be frustrating to some that this hasn’t happened. No decision has been taken to make any filing of any kind. We are not sure of the source of these rumors."

    Of course, the source of the "rumor" is well-known, the Soros-funded Center for American Progress blog. The CAP is closely aligned with AAR, with CAP people appearing regularly on AAR shows. And the "rumor" was not that Air America Radio HAD filed for bankruptcy but that it would be doing so Friday and that it was not clear whether they would be on the air next week. Horn sidestepped both issues in her email to Deggans so its anyone's guess what's going on.

    Meanwhile, Al Franken told Radar that he has is no longer being paid by Air America Radio:

    "We do know that there have been cash-flow problems. I haven't been paid in a while. Like, there's no cash flowing to me."

    Shocking!! A liberal business is an oxymoron. Their only hope is government underwriting or a billionaire like Soros to keep them going. The government isn't interested because they already have NPR and PBS and Soros is backing the Islamists so Err America is toast.

    Poor liberals. not even liberals like listening to other liberals. Will the nefarious Twilight Zone Olbermann be next?
    I realized why the Great pumpkinhead will not be part of the MSNBC election lineup. He might actually have to talk to someone that might -gasp- disagree with him. Liberals cannot stand the light of scrutiny and dissent from their goose- step ideology.
    Good by Air-head America and take the olbernuttjob with you.

    Regular hate liberal poster O'leilly, where are you? Don't you see why radio and television personalities need listeners/viewers? Ratings count.....and Olbermann is trolling for lefty viewers. We can only hope he is as successful as AIR AMERICA.

    Most reasonable people do not accept the ideas Olbermann has pontificated on in his last three "Special Comments." Especially when one looks at the facts, Olbermann looks so silly when he makes mistakes with historical items. If Olbermann had a real intellect, he would put up his argument against someone with a different point of view. He is afraid and knows he will be easily called on his inaccurate ramblings.

    Air America going belly up is no big news.

    What is news is that their ratings were as dismal, if not a bit better, than Dimbulbermann's.

    So, how long before MSNBC pulls the plug on Pinko Keith's show? At least they can replace it with "Live from Folsom Prison" and get the same ratings - nonexistent.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

    My sentiments exactly Mr. Williams!! Olbermann is next. the fewer liberals the better for America.

    Clearly, Team Bush has infiltrated Air Amercia at the highest levels to engineer its bankruptcy in an effort to stifle dissent!!! I'm sure Orange Boy has suspended his investigation into the "stolen" 2004 election in Ohio to focus on this latest nefarious scheme by the Snidely Whiplash of Amercian Presidents, George W. Bush

    Paul,

    Yours may be be my favoroite reader comments of all time on this site...for sure it's in the Top 10.

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAH A HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA to you!

    Air America, like other talk radio shows and like cable news programs is a BUSINESS. It doesn't matter if it is liberal or conservative, Rush Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Matthews, or Olbermann ... these are for profit businesses. If O'Reilly couldn't make a profit, does anyone seriously think he would be on tv or the radio?

    Keith (and Matthews) better take notice. Their shows are watched by practically no one. Cut the demographics any way you like, but there aren't many viewers.

    If MSNBC doesn't improve, they will make changes. They already took a step by putting Dan Abrams in charge. Will Keith rise to the occasion or will he continue to be an anchor around Abrams neck.

    This means all the building construction scaffolding and sides of buses in New York are finally safe from being plastered with giant images of Al Franken and Randi Rhodes. Urban beautification at its most basic level.

    Yeah, just like Delta, US Air, Southwest Airlines, Chrystler and Ford this is the last time you will be hearing from Air America.

    Keep living in your fantasy world right wingers, you'll need it to keep you going.

    Air America was the answer to a question nobody asked.

    There was never a need for a liberal radio station,because one already exist....NPR.

    There is no shortage of liberal voices out there..NBC,MSNBC,CBS,ABC,CNN and PBS are full of them...even evil FOX has liberals.

    Patrick, a liberal business can't exist? Try telling that bullshit to Apple Computers or Google or Costco or a huge chunk of other fortune 500 companies.

    By definition if they are making money in a free market they can't be liberal.

    Err America try to get by on Soros money, it failed.

    DeadAirAmerikka. Rest in pieces.

    "Yeah, just like Delta, US Air, Southwest Airlines, Chrystler and Ford..."

    So, is Air America crucial to US transportation infrastructure; or is it a huge employer that would cause significant economic problems if it upped and died without at least trying to save it?

    Somehow I don't see it fitting any of the "the Government must pay to prop it up" criteria, but being in a fantasy world I'm sure I missed the crucial something.

    Care to fill me in on what it is, and what color the sky is in you "non-fantasy" world?

    Here in fantasy land we require analogies to be... um... analogous. Rather than simply letting them be completely different; but apparantly in "non-fantasy world" analogies don't have to be very similar at all...

    You rightwingers are so damn dumb.. Donald Trump declared bankruptcy as well.. Open your eyes righties there is no reason to be afraid of the world. F'n pathetic.. Here is hoping that the lot of you face tremoundous adversity in your home sheltered life.

    Too bad, but I thought all along that liberal talk radio might fail.

    We liberals actually think about things and see the nuances that talk radio is not condusive to discussing.

    We'll leave it you Neanderthals. The internet is a better way for us to communicate anyway.

    Calling Bush "Hitler" is nuanced? You should have been on Err America with that kind of satire, it might still be on the air.

    And by the way, Olbermann's ratings are apparantly going up. The truth seems to win out, despite what conservatives want.

    I sense a "special" comment coming on. I can't wait to hear Orange Boy try to blame this on the republicans...

    Olbermann's numbers could triple and he would still be well behind.

    You are in denial. It's not a case of liberal vs conservative. It a business and it's about generating profit. It is apparently you that lives a sheltered life, Bill.

    The fact that you conservatives are going ballistic over Olbermann shows how rare it is to such trenchant criticism of your President on TV.

    Proving once again that the "liberal media" you are whine about is just a canard.

    The fact that you conservatives are going ballistic over Olbermann shows how rare it is to such trenchant criticism of your President on TV.

    Proving once again that the "liberal media" you all whine about is just a canard.

    Olbermann won't even mention this latest lib failure.

    Cee,
    I'm so glad you brought up making mistakes with historical items. You just can't convince Keith that O'Reilly was right about Malmedy. O'Reilly swears the evil Americans massacred the poor innocent Nazis. Keith keeps claiming the Nazis slaughtered the Americans. We have to stand by our hero O'Reilly and his heroes the Nazis.

    UPDATE: Air America responds. (pull you hand out of your pants)

    If Air America had filed for bankruptcy every time someone rumored it to be doing so, we would have ceased to exist long ago; it may be frustrating to some that this hasn’t happened. No decision has been taken to make any filing of any kind, we are not sure of the source of these rumors and frankly can not respond to every rumor in the marketplace.

    Ah Colbert so nice of you to take your head out of Olbermann's ass to grace us with your presence. What's the matter jerkoff no gay pride parade today? Or were you just out getting some more "advanced degrees" in being an a--hole?

    Olby's agent had better get cracking on finding him another gig when his MSNBC contract ends. Looks like plans for the Kommandant Keith Konspiracy Korner show on Air America are about to fall through. Maybe Olby will end up with Dan Rather on HDNet.

    Surely Air America does okay ....well, better... in some areas...like New York City and Los Angeles.

    Couldn't some well-heeled fans of the station help to keep it on in those markets?

    "Try telling that bullshit to Apple Computers or Google or Costco or a huge chunk of other fortune 500 companies."

    Skeptical, there is a difference between running a liberal business and liberals running a business. Apple painfully learned that lesson over 20 years ago when they were poised to own the computer market.

    They ignored Economics 101: the price of an item is determined by how much the buyer is willing to pay for it. They were undercut by Bill Gates and the PC world; Apple survived for years on serving the niche Graphic Arts market before marketing iTunes and the iPod.

    The businesses you mentioned and the "huge chunk of other Fortune 500 companies" understand the principles of good business: producing quality products and services at a price consumers are willing to pay while making a profit--concepts Air America generally seems to be ignorant of.

    AAR quote provided by hit_escape:

    "If Air America had filed for bankruptcy every time someone rumored it to be doing so, we would have ceased to exist long ago; it may be frustrating to some that this hasn’t happened. No decision has been taken to make any filing of any kind, we are not sure of the source of these rumors and frankly can not respond to every rumor in the marketplace."

    Not sure of the source?

    Recall that George Soros' Think Progress was where this story first broke (a group that will never be accused of being conservative.) They started laying off employees and firing radio show hosts. They can no longer afford to pay the Associated Press for wire service coverage:

    Plus, the Gloria Wise scandal has still not been resolved:

    What's more, Randi Rhodes is blabbermouthing rather than address the issue and put it to rest.

    The wheels are coming off the cart.

    Riverdog.. dang another dream goes unfulfilled,, you apparently are still alive.

    "Couldn't some well-heeled fans of the station help to keep it on in those markets?"

    Now there's a liberal business plan.

    Maybe they shoud pray for divine intervention!

    I update the post with the links from Drudge including the non-denial denial made to my pal Eric Deggans and Al Franken admitting he is longer being paid.

    Before you lefties get to excited you might want to take note that AAR did not deny the rumor (that they would declare bankruptcy on Friday) but only APPEARED to deny it (they have not declared bankruptcy yet). She also said "no decision has been made".

    Don't break out the champagne just yet...but keep the bottles on ice!

    Air America on welfare. That sounds about right.

    As you point out, Mr Cox, the 'denial' isn't one at all. But I suspect they still have hopes of pulling their fat out of the fire - not so much by saving the company but by saving the concept by finding a buyer that will continue the format. Unfortunately for Air America, investors in a capitalist society generally expect a return on their investment. So they have to dig deep amongst the investor pool to find the 'short bus' investor groups.

    Air America Files For Chapter 19, Combined Financial & Intellectual Bankruptcy

    I've updated the post again with the Radio Equalizer report that the story may have been a "dirty trick".

    But by who?

    Don't worry Loons, You're favorite anti-war hero is starting her radio network. Yes! Jane Fonda sez that she has FOUR! Yes count them, FOUR radio stations lined up! For women and spineless lib men. Two of the stations are so far up the dial they are where, How does mister Cox say it. "Where The Buses don't run."

    I set the over/under at six months for this latest mess.

    Ya know Loons are so out of it. Here on this thread. We have one loon saying ratings don't matter, and another one crowing that olby got a bump in the ratings. At this point you don't know if your comming or going. But we all know where Air-America and Olby will be soon.

    GOING.........GOING..............GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was at Borders yesterday and yes, had the book in my hands and read through it. I'll post my review over the weekend. Fair and Balanced of course!!!!!!

    Puck, not to criticize you in the least but Hanoi jane was not just a war protestor she was an all out traitor. I vividly remember pictures if her manning a north vietnanmese anti -aicraft gun pointed at US aircraft. She was a traitor and why she was never prosecuted as such still angers me to this day. Men that were friends of mine were killed by such guns and why people like fonda is allowed to breathe the same air as true American patriots is just out of my realm of comprehension.
    But hopefully she will have even less longevity and influence that air america. Thanks for the heads up on her show I will be ceratain to call in and try and ask her some pressing questions I have.

    " She was a traitor and why she was never prosecuted as such still angers me to this day."

    that figures.

    . . .

    "why people like fonda is allowed to breathe the same air as true American patriots is just out of my realm of comprehension."

    um, yeah, because you're a moron.

    . . .

    "But we all know where Air-America and Olby will be soon."

    2004 -- "Olby will be gone soon!"
    2005 -- "Olby will be gone soon!"
    2006 -- "Olby will be gone soon!"


    C'mon moronymous we already know that you are a traitor. You don't have to keep proving it. Maybe you would feel differently is someone you knew was shot down. We all know that you support the communists tho. Your idea of patriotism is marching in a gay pride parade and massaging Olbermann's ego- among other things.
    keep up the good work and intelligent commentary, we all really want to know what anti- American traitors reaslly think. Good commie!

    Riverdog... It is truly too bad that the people you admire so did not serve in Vietnam, perhaps we may have been lucky and they would have been shot and killed instead of poor and minorities.

    It's too bad dipshit traitors like you did not go over there and get fragged or get a claymore shoved in your idiotic liberal communist mouth.

    How many blacks does Air America employ?? Is Al Franken black?? Or Randi Rhodes?? Maybe they are failing because they lack the diversity of a Rush Limbaugh type show. You know (like) thought diversity.LOL>>LOL. Diversity of thought hmmmm what an idea...... Air America the only show I'm sure has less listeners than KO.

    Howard Dean was the same . Being a typical liberal hypocritical idiot. he railed aginst Bush not having enough Blacks on his staff but how many did Howard Dean have in all his years of Governor of Vermont?? ZERO one of the liberal trademarks is "do as I say not as I do". It's kind of like ted Kennedy preaching about drunk driving or clinton speaking aginst rape.

    Olbermann won't even mention this latest lib failure.

    Yea, it hits too close to home.

    Hey Vermonts only got 1% of population thats not white. Deans motto to minorities as Governer was "Visit Vermont just dont move here"

    "So, how long before MSNBC pulls the plug on Pinko Keith's show? At least they can replace it with "Live from Folsom Prison" and get the same ratings - nonexistent."

    Hmmm... Now if they were to air Johnny Cash playing at Folsom Prison, ratings might improve.

    I do wonder if Olbermann feels the walls closing in on him? If Air America ceases to breathe, that would be one less place he could work at if MSNBC cans him. Dear God, imagine how far Olbermann could fall. His next gig could be as an Informercial actor, hawking the latest Olby, er, oldies music collection from K-Tel.

    Heaven forbid he have a job where he'd have to interact with the general public. Most people don't want "special comments" when they order their French fries.
