CNN News on KTPK 1090 AM has got to go!

We've been putting up with CNN News on your station for some time now. I
suppose you could argue that it allows us to find out what the other side
is up to, but the fact is that the slant on the news that CNN News provides
is not compatible with the listenership of this station. You need to be
carrying Air America News.

When I'm in my car, I often switch between the news feed on XM Channel 167
and your news feed, and they are offering entirely different news stories
and an entirely different approach to the News.

Unfortunately, when watching TV News, we are forced to put up with their
slant because it's the best we have (although if I really want News I have
to watch C-span for the raw feed or Democracy Now on Link-TV). But at
least their is a choice on AM radio and XM radio.

This email at this time is prompted by the report that someone had called
Al Gore a hypocrit because of actions that took place in the Aldritch Ames
case, which took place in the early 90's. A real News outlet might have
reported that remark, but should have pointed out that at the time the
searchs took place that they were legal; the law was changed by Congress a
couple of years later. Furthermore, Gore was only Vice President at the
time and had no control over the actions of the Justice Department, which
was under the leadership of the President.

This note will be posted on AirAmericaLinks Blog
