Drudge reports that Crashing the Gate, by Armstrong and Moulitzas Daily Kos Zuniga, has sold only 2062 copies at retail, and another 1568 at discount stores. I see that Amazon has slashed the selling price from 25.99 to 14.99. That's a 42% discount. Still no takers. They continue to ask, "How much does it Kos?"
Drudge further reports that Randi Rhodes of Air America has seen her minuscule audience shrink to a nano-audience, from 60,900 listeners to 27,900 in the past year. This means she has been abandoned by the city transport workers and now only the Pakistani cab drivers are listening to her show. You can tell, too. Listen as they drive past you: "rrrrahnDEE! rrrrahnDEE!"
Air America as a whole lost one third of its listeners as the liberal talk radio network fell from a 1.6 share to 1.0. Drudge quotes an Air America network "insider" as saying, hilariously,
the radio ratings released today do not reflect the overall growth of the broadcast.If I ever should suffer the misfortune of contracting a tumor, I hope it grows just like Air America. "No, doc. Don't schedule surgery and I won't be needing that chemotherapy stuff, either. My tumor is growing just like Air America and before you know it it'll dry up and be flushed away and we can watch it floating down the East River and out to sea."
"The demos are better, and listeners trust AIR AMERICA to give them the real truth on issues and the Bush presidency," says the insider. (what listeners?)
