    •  You know, I think that I've heard radio host (3+ / 0-)

      Thom Hartmann say, and it seems like it was quite a few years, maybe 8-10 years.  But I don't remember, exactly.

      Hartmann brought up this point when Air America (which I really liked) was allowed to "go down."

      Made me and Mr. musiccitymollie furious.  We were "charter members," and SO HAPPY that liberals finally had a voice.

      Rupert Murdoch blew $500 million to launch Fox News and keep it going. It reached profitability in 2002, right as it captured its audience after fearmongering post-9/11.

      What he spends on keeping the NY Post and the Boston Herald going, who knows?

      Better get back to the web. The internet isn't going to surf itself.
