You Are What You Know...

One year later, and still standing firm. Congratulations to Air America Radio on it's first birthday. [BBC] [Annatopia]

"On March 31, 2004, Air America launches at noon (ET), with Al Franken proclaiming, "Today is both an ending and a beginning: an end to the right-wing dominance of talk radio, [and] a beginning of a battle for truth, a battle for justice, a battle indeed for America itself ... not to be grandiose."
They have beaten such right-wing heavyweights such as Limbaugh and Hannity in ratings in major areas.
Watch the HBO Documentary: Left of the Dial, tonight at 7 CST on HBO. [Synopsis]
The Road to Air America: Breaking the Right-Wing Stranglehold on Our Nation's Airwaves by Sheldon Drobny. [Amazon]

I absolutely love listening to Air America every day, but I will certainly miss Unfiltered. Today was the last show for the program, and Rachel Maddow signed off by saying: "You are what you know...". It's so VERY true. In this the "information age" no one really knows what's going on. We listen to the corporate-run media because we don't know any better, and they tell us what to do, and we do it. Wake up sheeple!!!
