Air America’s Janeane Garofalo: ‘Liberal Talk Radio Can’t Work — That’s Crap’

air_america_garofolo.jpgDespite Air America’s deep financial troubles, Janeane Garofalo ain’t buying that it can’t work:

Metro: Air America is struggling. Why do you think that is?

Garafolo: Oh, it is true, but it has nothing to do with the message or the audience. Air America was the fastest growing talk radio station in history, 18-35 demo. Sam [Seder] and my show consistently beat out long-standing, right-wing, regressive radio. The problem was we got conned in the beginning by some shysters. It was difficult to recover from that. Then we were plagued by “who’s going to run this thing and do it for no pay?” We’ve never gotten back on our feet from those financial debacles. The myth is that liberal talk radio doesn’t work or can’t work. That’s crap.
