Where did you get this from?  Bill O'Reilly did a hatchet job piece on Air 
America last week, filled with the usual lies and half-truths, and these 
numbers were the charges made by (gasp) a BLOGGER.  As far as I know, 
neither Mr O'Reilly (who has a long-standing feud with Franken) nor the 
blogger are privy to Air America financial figures, but I have been told 
these numbers are not accurate.  Oh and Bill is being just a tiny bit 
disingenuous, since Rupert Murdoch pays to put O'Reilly's radio show on a 
number of stations...
