ATTENTION MALLOY FANS...Anybody read this?
Edited on Mon Oct-09-06 06:51 PM by Cascadian
I finally got a chance to read the article in Creative Loafing, the Atlanta alternative weekly. A very interesting article on what is happening at Air America and gives a little insight on why Mike Malloy got fired and the people behind it. The powers that be at Air America state that Malloy's firing was because of "money reasons". If this is true then it is only a small excuse. I am convinced that Malloy was "too liberal" for the Air America suits. Not only that, I find it disturbing that you had a Rethug named Evan Cohen who was running things in the beginning and now you have Bob Ennis, a former Rupert Murdoch (Faux News!) who's now their CFO (???!!!). Having Cohen and now Ennis at the network should be red flags that the righties are undermining and destroying Air America from within. Why hadn't anybody even denied them access to the building let alone give them their jobs there at Air America???

Anyway, here is the link to that article if you have not read it. If you haven't please do! Want to get your opinions.

"Creative Loafing" is a GREAT name for an alternative weekly.

And here, I thought that Atlanta was full of nothing but hatchet-chopping yuppie snots. Guess I was wrong.

5. Excellent article. Evan Cohen and Bob Ennis, who let them in?
Air America that will be your undoing and it is simply sad and a real travesty.
