I think the Jones networks are doing just fine. The problem Air America had, other than the way it was run, was the way they treated others. They lost a lot of liberal listeners' goodwill when they tried to strong arm other liberal talk show hosts like Ed Schultz and Stephanie Miller and they angered the remaining listeners with the unceremonious firings of Mike Malloy and Randi Rhodes. I've heard the calls for Rush, O'Reilly, and Hannity's heads plenty of times, but their bosses were loyal to them in the end. Air America was never loyal to their talking heads and it turned a lot of people off.

But you can say this, at least. Air America did spawn a U.S. Senator. And that's something...I guess.

I'd actually say that Rachel Maddow is the greatest success story to come out of Air America, seeing as Franken was a lot better known for SNL and his books. That said, even I thought Air America had been off the air for years. I used to listen - a lot - but once the afore-mentioned Franken and Maddow (and Janeane Garafalo) got tired of not getting paid and moved on, I drifted away. I don't know if I tuned in once post-Bush/Kerry - and if the liberal radio station lost me, really, it's amazing they lasted this long.
