For everyone rooting against Air America Radio in the delicious story of the finagling of public funds from a children's charity, it's only fair to leave Al Franken out of it. Evan Cohen, the guy who ran the place at the beginning, stiffed Franken for his salary and that of others and was run out of the place on a rail. The whole business is unsavory and sounds like it might have been criminal, but -- as they say in showbiz -- don't blame the talent.

Why am I never surprised when blogs run by Republican shills pick up the latest nonsense smear set up to hit any institution on the left that might be gaining traction?

He fails to appreciate the irony that he's a paid shill of "media matters" while Glenn Reynolds is a Univ. professor, not a political hack. And also fails to discuss the problems Air America stealing funds from the hands of poor kids and Alzheimer's patients, instead choosing to attack a guy who said "I CONFESS that I haven't paid a lot of attention to the Air America financial scandals. But this roundup of new developments suggests that there may be more to this than I had thought."
