The latest to slam Al Franken & Co. is New York Daily News columnist Michael Goodwin:
With the Iraq torture scandal everywhere, I tuned in, expecting to hear sober policy analysis mixed with glee over President Bush’s political pickle.
Instead, I got 10 hours of rancid venom directed at the President, Rumsfeld, Rush Limbaugh, the Catholic Church and anyone else the hosts felt like slamming. If you’re a card-carrying lib who likes crude sex jokes and a cartoonish echo chamber, Air America is for you.
Goodwin makes a good point: If Rush Limbaugh is detestable because he’s so filled with hatred, why is AirAmerica trying to win listeners over by taking the moral low road?
