    Why are you guys bashing Franken? Is what he said not true? It sounds like Cohen found a loophole that would've allowed him to embezzle the money, thus skirting his company's debt to the boys and girls club. He is a crook. Am I missing something?

    Well the fact that he's a liar leads me to the conclusion that he can't be taken seriously on any other level. Where is Franken's outrage at this??? And what is he going to do make amends??

    What do you mean? Franken called Cohen a crook. He is outraged. What did he lie about?

    Air America made amends by paying the loan off after the bad publicity and firing Cohen.

    Well that seems pretty petty on Franken's part, but in his defense, Malkin has selectively quoted him to paint him in a false light.

    She left out this part. "Mr. Franken also said that the network's new owners "don't legally have to pay it back" - referring to the loans - "because we're a different company or something."

    "But morally we do," he said.

    I think Michelle Malkin's viewpoint might be a tad slanted to the right. Maybe.

    Wrong, as your own post illustrated, Michelle posted all that was needed, since your link was from her:

    Many links:

    My link wasn't from her, it's from the NYT. Sorry I made a mistake. I didn't think I saw that quote in there. I must have missed it.

    Anyway, since the loan has been paid back in full, I don't get what the point of all this is.

    Cohen...

    People, they're ALL crooks, if you catch my drift.
