Air America Bankrupt - Times Again Ignores Loan from Boys & Girls Club
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.
Blogger "Robert Musil" notes the "Boys and Girls club" omission as well.
