Is Air America going bankrupt? O'LIElly said so last night . . .
Happened to be flipping through the channels last night and caught a portion of the rerun of O'LIElly discussing Air America with Michelle Malkin (puke) and he said they will go off the air if a George Soros-style rescue doesn't happen soon.

What is the real story or can I take that as just another O'Reilly LIE??

If AAR goes off, I'll probably need to move overseas of something . . .

3. LOL, seeing as it is O'LIElly, the reverse is true
His ratings are dropping so he has to hit out at someone and he really, really, really WANTS AAR to go down so he lies about it. Real news would be the time when he actually tells the truth, hasn't happened yet.

5. Consider the source, O'Reilly is no harbinger of truth. n/t

6. They've been saying that since day one. There's absolutely no reason
to even bother trying to figure out whether O'Reilly is right or wrong about something. Everything he says is crafted to promote a political point of view, and truth ar falsity of anything he says is purely accidental. Just consider him an infomercial for the Republican Party.

I honestly don't know why so many DUers listen to him. Given FOX's ratings, I think if liberals stopped watching him his audience would be completely gone.

7. I wouldn't believe him if he told me the time
and I watched him look at a clock. AAR is probably doing quite well and O'Liar is pissed off about that.

8. Hey...
...I've got an idea, let's have about twenty more threads beating this dead horse. Pretty please. JESUS PEOPLE, quoting Billy O'Liar to start a thread? Does it really warrant that kind of attention? For how many months has Billy predicted the demise of Air America? And just how long will Billy wait for those WMD to be found before he fullfills his promise to turn against Bush?

He's a LIAR, quit posting his shit here, or at least read downpage so you can see this is ground that's already been covered twenty gazillion times since the luffa loving bastard puked forth his nonsense yesterday.

9. You can usually believe the opposite of whatever he says.
Same with Bush.

AAR is doing well for a new radio network, but they have started a listener membership program, sort of like a fan club, that involves sending in money (The Nation magazine does the same thing), so O'Lielly assumes they must be going bankrupt. He can't differentiate between objective reality and his own wishful thinking.

10. I don't know if O'Reilly is lying or not but it would not surprise me
Liberals are not the same as the Freepers. The sort of political abuse the GOP craves and loves is mostly repugnant to Liberals. When we try and imitate the GOP we always lose. We are never going to out Rush, Rush. I don't know the answer but I don't believe abusive (hate) radio is it. We can only succeed if we use comedy and satire and can the hatred.
