ir America Drudge-e

News & Politics

Conservative virtual gossip rag Drudge Report recently posted a breathless blurb alleging that Air America was under investigation by the secret service for an on-air skit that joked about shooting the president. Drudge's anonymous "government sources," do not appear to be correct. Air America's president of programming responded that although the skit "was in bad taste [and] slipped through our normal vetting process...We are not under investigation from the Secret Service." This skit notwithstanding, Air America must be doing something right. (NewsDissector via Kenneth)
