The Countermedia Continues to Grow

Today the liberal radio network Air America began broadcasting. I haven't tuned in yet, but Air America may already be making a difference. Already the infamous Clear Channel has announced that has enlisted Jesse Jackson do a talk radio show for them (via kos). This would seem to indicate that Air America is succeeding in moving other media outlets along with it. While its too soon to tell, this latest incarnation of liberal radio could have considerable consequences.

However, the campaign to set up a counterweight to conservative news outlets is not limited to the radio. Al Gore and his associate Joel Hyatt have bought a cabel news channel from the collapsing Vivendi media congolmerate.

Very interesting. Now all we need is for some rich liberal to poor tens of millions of dollars annually into a money losing partisan newspaper.
