Air America finds itself off to an inauspicious start.

From the Chicago Tribune

After just two weeks of broadcasting, Air America Radio, the fledgling liberal talk-radio network featuring Al Franken and Janeane Garofalo, was pulled off the air this morning in Chicago and Los Angeles, the network’s second- and third-largest markets, in a dispute over payments for airtime.

Arthur Liu, owner of Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, which owns Air America affiliates WNTD-950 AM in Chicago and KBLA-1580 AM in Los Angeles, said Air America bounced a check and owes him more than $1 million.

This is probably the funniest thing I’ve seen from Franken since “Stewart Soils Himself.”

    I’m in L. A. and tried listening a couple of times – gawdawful nonsense.

  • interesting. i’ve been listening to the franken show and think it’s pretty funny.

    Being in Cleveland I haven’t heard it, although I have always found Franken pretty funny. But this story is hilarious.

  • I’ve never found Franken funny, so that may explain some of it.
