The Associated Press reports from L.A. today on the collapse of Air America, a radio network that specialized in liberal talk programming since 2004.
"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.

The inceptive premise for the venture was a need for a balanced national discussion. While we heartily agree that there is just such a need, we also hurry to point out that the network's last gasp this week shows that the nation has no need of Air America.
