Anyone know what's going on at Air America?
Several times today Rachel Maddow has referred to some "challenges" this week and "a difficult holiday season." Part of it was the weather, but is something going on with the network?

1. I know Kent Jones has been canned
Rachel and he tried to let it go as a "business decision" but it still sucks.

4. Wow, that REALLY sucks.
I wonder if they waited until he and his wife came back from Paris after Thanksgiving to let him know. Happy holidays to you, Kent! :sarcasm:

It seems like AAR management continues to shoot themselves in the foot on a regular basis. How stupid can they be?

6. I heard Kent say today that it was his last day, but I didn't know he'd
been fired. That really sucks!

7. No! How dare they?
I am still smarting over the loss of Lawton Smalls from way back in the Marc Maron days. I LOVE Kent Jones! Hope he lands on his feet somewhere.

2. Does even ANYONE at Air America know what's going on?
It's basically a train wreck. Management is trying to kill the company.

3. Yeah and they are so incompetent that they can't even do that right
instead it's death by a thousand cuts.
