Some Air America numbers released...

You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? I've caught errors in statements
made by AAR hosts, but they were of a minor nature (for example, Randi
Rhodes saying that WWL was the AAR affiliate in New Orleans, when, in fact,
the correct station was WSMB, which is co-owned with WWL). For the most
part, statements made on the air by AAR hosts are carefully researched. The
talent and the network management know that the whole media establishment is
out to get them and they are usually very careful to avoid statements that
they cannot defend. Of course, accuracy is no guarantee against successful
attacks by Carl Rove and his disciples. Ask Dan Rather. The substance of his
allegations against Bush was correct but his use of evidence that proved to
be manufactured did him in. There have been allegations that Rove et al were
responsible for manufacturing the evidence that Rather used, but I don't
know whether those charges were proven.
