The Radio EqualizerIn my post Through the Looking Glass I mulled over the hype and reality of Air America the Flagship of Liberal Talk Radio and wondered how long it would stay afloat and how it had stayed afloat up to this time. It would appear there are reasons for Air America's solvency despite its low listener numbers.

Media Cover-Up, Bronx Community Programs Nearly Shut
What happens when the mainstream media, after years of seething over conservative talk radio's success, discover its alternative got diverted public funds, earmarked instead for inner-city youth and seniors?
The answer, with one key exception: they pretend it didn't happen.
Yes, only because of a New York Daily News tidbit do we know that Bronx-based Gloria Wise Boys and Girls Club nearly shut down major programs recently, because almost $500,000 in governmental grant money was instead diverted to Air America's liberal radio network.
You need to read the rest and then ask yourself some questions. Like why haven't you read about this in the Mainstream Media?
