I'd like to say I'm shocked by the announcement that Air America 
Radio has gone bankrupt, but I'm not.  It was poorly run, wasted a 
ton of bucks, and did a lot of other things wrong.  But this is NOT 
the end of progressive talk.  Air America's main competitor, 
Dial-Global, formerly Jones Radio Network, continues to be 
profitable, with hosts like Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller and Thom 
Hartmann.  So, I expect this may actually be good for those talk show 
hosts, since they'll pick up some new stations.
