Air America: We Paid it Back Before We Didn't Pay it Back

Apparently Air America is getting John Kerry to write their press releases. In a really lame attempt to throw bloggers off the scent, last week they hinted they had paid the money back months ago:

The current owners of Air America Radio have no obligation to Progress Media,s business activities. We are very disturbed that Air America Radio’s good name could be associated with a reduction in services for young people, which is why we agreed months ago to fully compensate the Gloria Wise Boys & Girls Club as a result of this transaction.

But this week they told FoxNews:

“We’re committed to paying this money and the terms are being worked out… We are awaiting direction from the investigation into how to proceed.”

That must come as crushing news to the Kos Kid who said the story “appears to be phoney” If it’s a phony, it’s a good one because Air America is now saying they are going to pony up a half a million dollars. But hey- Kos Kids don’t think rationally.

In the end, the blogosphere cost Air America a half a million dollars.

The story was sure to be ignored until the blogs started pushing it. Now CNN mentioned it. (and us) and FOXNews got the commitment that they’d pay it back.

Now it’s just a matter of when they write the check. They do have the money… Right? Right?

Update: I’m starting to feel left out. Usually when irrational people hurl insults rather than fact based arguments around the blogosphere it is aimed at me. But this time Brian Maloney is having all the fun. Read his take… It’s basically the same as mine but he wrote a few more words… and as an added bonus, you get to see the liberals going bonkers.
