Air America Bankrupt - Times Again Ignores Loan from Boys & Girls Club

A choice example of liberal hypocrisy is again ignored by the Times.

Published: 12/18/2006 4:31 PM ET

By Clay Waters

Monday's front-page Business story on Air America's bankruptcy (better late than never, given the left-wing radio network filed for bankruptcy protection two months ago) by Elizabeth Jensen and Lia Miller is headlined "After Bankruptcy Filing, Recriminations Fly at Air America."

Michelle Malkin reminds us that Brian Maloney at the Radio Equalizer blog had the story - including the tidbit about host Al Franken possibly running for Senate from Minnesota - long ago.

The Times does have loads of details about the business mistakes made by the network, but strangely, nothing at all about the investigation by the New York State attorney general's office into the Bronx-based Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club, whose mission it is toserve poor children, but made improper loans of $625,000 to the left-wing radio network that have apparently yet to be repaid by Air America.

Yet this choice example of liberal hypocrisy (rich liberals stealing from poor children!) doesn't make the Times today.
Perhaps the reporters made the mistake of relying on the paper's archive of Air America stories, given that the Times almost completely ignored the story when it broke in August 2005.

FEBRUARY 7--Bankrupt and about to lose Al Franken, its marquee star, Air America Radio is set to change hands for the bargain price of $4.25 million, according to new court documents. The sales figure was disclosed in a purchase agreement filed yesterday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York. According to the agreement, the deal between Air America's owner, Piquant LLC, and a firm controlled by Stephen L. Green, a New York realtor, calls for Green's firm to repay up to $3.25 million in loans provided to Air America after the liberal radio network filed for Chapter 11 protection last October (the company listed debts of $20.2 million). Green's company will also give Piquant LLC $500,000 and pay off up to $500,000 in network debts (the bulk of which, $349,000, is owed to the network's Manhattan landlord). Green's bid topped by more than $1.25 million the nearest offer received by Air America, according to a motion filed along with the purchase agreement. An excerpt from that motion can be found below. Court documents do not specify how many bids were received for the network, though a filing notes that 'more than ten interested parties' signed nondisclosure agreements and were allowed to review confidential network financial and corporate records. While Green controls the corporation purchasing Air America, two of the firms that were pre-bankruptcy investors in the radio network will 'collectively own a minority interest' in the Green company. The Air America purchase is expected to be finalized at a court hearing in the next week. Franken, who is planning to run next year for a U.S. Senate seat from Minnesota, is scheduled to do his final Air America show on February 14.

The latest polls show Franken has no serious competition for reelection, and his approval rating is skyrocketing, unlike the rating for Republicans in Congress.

I am no fan of Al Franken but he does have the right to run. Same goes for Palin, Romney, Emmer, Bachman, etc., etc.
