More on Air Scamerica

Michelle Malkin
is all over the Air America scam over mis-appropriated funds from the NYC Boys and Girls Clubs. Her weekly column takes a great angle asking why Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have not expressed outrage over a corporation taking funds from poor, inner-city minority children:
"If a conservative radio network had been entangled in a scam to steal from black children to line the pockets of wealthy white con artists, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would already be staging hunger strikes in protest. But both have hefty political and financial stakes in Air America's success -- and the big mouths aren't about to badmouth their friends.
Air America's flagship New York City station is housed on Park Avenue at WLIB-AM, owned by Inner City Broadcasting. The company shunted aside its black-themed talk format at WLIB to accommodate Air America. In return, Air America made room for a few minority radio hosts and also entered into lucrative lease management agreements with Inner City Broadcasting, which owns and operates 17 radio stations in five markets."

If only Haliburton were somehow involved in this... THEN we'd hear about it!
