I think it's a stretch to extrapolate the national viability of a format 
based on the decision of one station.  Perhaps, they just got a better 
offer from ESPN.

Overall, AirAmerica is adding affiliates, but there will always be some 
churn, that's the nature of the business.

I still can't figure out why some right-wingers are so afraid of another 
point of view being aired.  Are they really that insecure in their 
convictions that they can't stand to hear of something else being aired?
