    Air America has 'no audience' in D.C.
    Rating service can't detect measurable listenership for liberal network

    Air America's Al Franken

    If Al Franken speaks on the radio, and no one is tuned in to hear him, does he make a sound?

    That could be the question being asked these days in the nation's capital, where Franken's liberal network, Air America, has no measurable audience according to the Arbitron rating service.

    The Washington Post reports the dismal ratings are in for the summer seasonal book:


    Air America, the liberal talk network carried on WWRC-AM (1260), went from bad to nonexistent. After WWRC recorded a mere fraction of a rating point in the spring with syndicated shows from the likes of lefty talkers Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo and Stephanie Miller, Arbitron couldn't detect a measurable listenership for the station this time around.
    Notes Chris Field of the conservative publication Human Events, "Static would fare about as well."

    The news comes on the heels of the network asking its listeners to send in money, a financial scandal involving money siphoned from a Boys & Girls Club in New York City, a California radio station pleading for advertisers to sponsor the programming claiming it could not get a single ad, and a host apologizing for what some thought were threats against President Bush's life.

    Static would actually be better.

    This does raise an important question which came to my mind some time ago.
    If even liberals dont want to hear it, why?

    Can this give us an indication of what motivates the mainstream liberal?
    Can the answer help us to figure out how to persuade many fence sitting liberals to see the light?
