Air America Misses Another Payment To Employees

They say it's the fault of their direct-deposit company, ADP. The Radio Equalizer isn't so sure.

Oh, By The Way: Hoist the Black Flag will be on again tomorrow, and we'll be talking to The Radio Equalizer (Brian Maloney) about Air America. And other stuff.

Is Air America... Telling the Truth? Fat Kid says he missed a paycheck, too:

Uh, FWIW my paycheck came late last week too. Apparently it was BofA that had the snafu though - electronic pmts weren't going through all kosher-like - so I didn't get paid for a day or two.

More, So Much More, At Michelle: On the NYT's and MSM's failure to cover the story, Day By Day checking in, etc.

A RedState blogger muses:

When the Swift Boats Veterans for Truth started getting some traction with their accusations against Kerry, the NY Times immediately sent two top reporters to Texas to try to link their funding back to the Bush campaign. After a week of digging, The Times produced a lengthy expose and a fancy chart that basically proved that Texas Republicans historically help each other get elected. The horror.

The dollar amount of the donation in question was $250,000. The dollar amount in the Air America scandal is almost $900k.

I'd say that if a legal $250k donation justifies sending two reporters halfway across the country for a week, $900k of embezzled funds in your own city probably justifies one reporter for a half day.

But that's just me...

MSM SOP. The media was very interested in Bush's large-but-perfectly-legal campaign warchest in 2000, and his opting out (legally) of the campaign finance system, but not so much interested in Gore's illegal donations from Chinese nuns, nor AG Janet Reno's claim that the independent counsel law didn't require her to appoint an independent counsel... because Al Gore said no wrongdoing occurred, and that, apparently, was enough for her.
