    A quick survey of opensecrets.org shows Arthur Liu to be a Republican political contributor.

    Air America Radio Is Dropped From Stations in 2 Big Markets

    Just two weeks after its maiden broadcast, Air America Radio, the liberal talk-radio network, was suddenly taken off the air yesterday by two stations in two of the major markets where it leases broadcast time - Los Angeles and Chicago - as a result of a contractual dispute.

    Evan Cohen, the chairman of Air America, said that Multicultural Radio Broadcasting, the owner of the network's affiliates in Los Angeles and Chicago, had replaced the network's shows with alternative programming just after 7 a.m. local time in each city.

    Arthur Liu, the owner of Multicultural, which is based in New York, was quoted on the Web site of The Chicago Tribune yesterday afternoon as saying that he had taken the action after his company tried to cash a check from Air America and it bounced.

    The Tribune quoted Mr. Liu as saying that Air America, which is majority-owned by Progress Media, owed Multicultural Radio more than $1 million.

    Mr. Liu did not respond yesterday to several messages left at his office.

    Mr. Cohen, however, said that Multicultural owed money to Air America. He said that Mr. Liu's company had recently deposited a check from Air America for $315,000, and that it had cleared. But Mr. Cohen said that Air America had stopped payment on a second check, for $156,000, after Air America discovered that Multicultural had leased air time on its Los Angeles station to another programmer in February and March, before Air America went on the air on March 31.

    While not broadcasting during that time, Mr. Cohen said, Air America had already leased that time from Multicultural and was thus entitled to any fees collected.


    The Air America programming could still be heard yesterday in nearly a dozen markets, including New York City. It said it was preparing last night to ask a judge in New York to order Multicultural to put the programming back on the air on its stations in Chicago and Los Angeles.

      I wonder the liberal media isn't all over this?

        What's truly shocking isn't that Drudge was wrong (again) but that people get all excited when he posts something.

        Fool me once, shame on you ...

        How does that quote go again?

          A judge today ordered the Republican who took Air America Radio off the air in Chicago and LA to put them back.

          Sorry no link, though I'm sure the liberal media is all over this.

              Yesterday I turned on AM 950 and there was talking in Spanish. I thought "what kind of satire are they doing?" But they never stopped. Later I checked the net and found out what happened. Pretty weird.

                I'm just glad I can still get it on XM.

                Okay, I'm lying.

                    Now this is classic. Drudge has got more nerve than Omarosa to print a story about someone else running false stories:
