"Air America ceased airing new programs Thursday afternoon and said it will soon file to be liquidated under Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It began broadcasting reruns of programs and would end those as well Monday night."The expired network, an apparently popular pet project among left-wing celebs and too few venture capitalists, ran into legal entanglements and sagging ratings almost from its launch.
