As many of the newpapers in America the Atlanta Journal Constitution has been losing paid subscribers at a faster rate than Christie Brinkley can shitcan another husband.
Some attribute it to having so much free online content, others suggest the majority of Americans are damn tired of the leftist pablum being peddled by the AJR, NYT, LAT among many others. I tend to fall on the side of the later cause on a 70% to 30% ratio.
After reading this article on the continuing failure of the far left airwaves screeching Air America it not only confirms my beliefs, but also makes me wonder why the AJR is still in business at all. Atlanta has joined the host of cities that have kicked Air America to the curb.
The decision comes as a letdown for local liberal listeners and Air America execs. Until J.W. Broadcasting purchased its second area station in late January, the 1690 dial had served as the home of Air America, the only liberal AM talk radio in a market saturated by conservative talk show hosts such as Neal Boortz and Laura Ingraham.
Atlanta is following in the footsteps of New York who will be losing the “opportunity” to listen to Air America’s crapola despite the millions George Soros has pounded down this rat hole. Oh, and here is the best quote of all.
“If we carried Air America, we’d get nothing but complaints.” But it raises the question of why anyone reads the AJR if they are so adamently against Air America? The AJR, at least the editorial pages, is nothing more than AA on paper.
Well at least someone in Atlanta is awake and NOT listening!
