Air America, the liberal radio network which was created to knock Rush Limbaugh off the air, was pronounced dead on Thursday after a long, hard-fought battle against reality.
For six years, Air America's hosts (including now-senator Al Franken) spewed bile and left-wing propaganda, alienating many listeners and entertaining virtually no one.
The radio network had terrible financial problems as advertisers and audiences fled, with workers and "talent" sometimes being paid with checks that bounced. Bankruptcies and lawsuits flew for years, until the network finally drew its last, angry breath.
Air America's last day is today, leaving a stunned broadcast industry asking itself one haunting question: "Who even knew those idiots were still on the air?!"
