Air America Attacks Radio Station Owner: "We're going to slam Liuís head in a car door"
Err Amerikka ^

Posted on 04/15/2004 11:41:32 AM PDT by GulliverSwift

The Sludge Report

After just two weeks on the air, Air America Radio, the fledgling liberal talk-radio network featuring Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, and that really loud woman from Florida, appears to have encountered serious cash-flow problems.

Stop the presses!!! There’s nothing more exciting than half a story from a third hand source!!!!

Insiders tell SLUDGE, that the reason the network was pulled off the air this morning in Chicago and Los Angeles, the network's second- and third-largest markets, was because, the owner of both stations, Arthur Liu of Multicultural Broadcasting, said, the network bounced a check and owes him more than $1 million! The run-on sentence, tortured grammar and the exclamation point clearly means it’s true!!

Only it isn’t.

Normally we’d let this go because “habitual liars” like Drudge are laughable, and ridicule is our business.

But Arthur Liu --- not funny. He lied to us, he ripped us off and now we’re chasing him down with a pipe wrench. It’s a metaphor.

Here’s what really happened:

This Liu-ser was ripping off our boss Evan Cohen big time (he can’t do that, that’s our job). Evan found out about it and he stopped payment on a check to keep Liu-cifer from ripping him off even more. You can touch Evan for the occasional meal or drinks but a million bucks is crossing the line. And if we ever get low on cash, we can always call Barbra Streisand. Or any of the
Baldwins. Except Stephen.

So we got screwed, Liu’d, and tattooed. How Liu can you get? In Liu of payment. Liu’d and lascivious behavior. These write themselves. What we’re getting at is that we hate him.

So now everyone’s saying we’re going down the dumper in Chicago and Los Angeles, but what they don’t tell you is that we’re still on in Portland. And we OWN Portland. And let’s not forget Riverside and Plattsburgh. And New
York. And streaming on the internet. And XM. And Sirius. Actually we’re fine.

So cool your jets. Air America Radio isn’t dead, we’re in court and we’re going to slam Liu’s head in a car door. Another metaphor. We hope to be back on the air tomorrow or the next day in those markets.

In the meantime, why don’t you give Arthur a call at (212)966-1059, or check out his website www.mrbi.net

Arthur Liu, I wouldn’t show your face around here.

Or Riverside. Or Plattsburgh.

DEVELOPING……

They're so graceless. Don't they know when you cross the line in political speech? It's just like Al Franken trying to pick a fight with someone from National Review. They're all confused. You don't fight like that over politics. Over a woman, that's different. But I doubt Al would ever fight over a woman.

What I suspect really happened...

"Hello, this is Mr. Zerr, first name Lou. I'm a rich Republican and I'd like to give you a million dollars for your talk-radio network..."

I love the smell of liberal rationalization in the morning. It smells like ...

Actually, I don't like that smell. In fact, I HATE that smell. It smells like one of Clinton's cigars. It smells like the box where Hillary kept her Rose Law Firm billing records. It smells like the spittle splattered on Paul Begala's computer monitor. In other words, it friggin reeks, and it would be great if we never had to smell it AGAIN!

They gave the man a check, then stopped it? He ripped them off? The detail on that report is staggering. Just how did he rip them off? Details, please. I think they want to wage a PR war, then quietly lose in court. If they didn't think they owed the check, they would not have written the check. Just like with everything else involving free markets and capitalism, the liberals just don't have a clue. I hope the guy gets them for character assassination damages too.

You know, we conservatives could overwhelm the switchboards. Liberals dream of getting "seminar callers" onto the air on Rush Limbaugh's show. But given the scant amount of people, it would be very, very easy to have all the callers to Err Amerikkka be conservative. That's what happened on C-span all the time. So they had to have separate lines for liberals and conservatives just to make it fair for the libbies.

Of course, there's a problem with this. One would have to listen to Air America for more than two minutes.

Call in live at 1-866-303-2270

They make a strong case, LOL! No details, dates, or facts. I'd say this is a charge that cannot be refuted! Typical Leftists -- they hate Liu and that is sufficient.

They were ripped off in the same way that listless do-nothing hippie types have always been ripped off by "the man". Arthur probably did something horrific like ask to be payed for his services.

I'm curious too. Since they're writing the checks... how could he double dip? If anything they're hiring Democrats to do their payroll andaccounting.

This thinking is bizarre.

And we OWN Portland.

Wow, shine on you crazy diamond.

This is why you can't have a serious discussion with a liberal. Also, this just goes to prove that they don't have a message or a serious constituency of listeners. Rather than appeal to people with facts and logic they hit 'em with "humor" and accusations. The uneducated masses will gravitate toward the glibness and anger every time.
