Just another example Ken, of how you are being hooked like a bass. You
strike every time. Try to read between the lines and apply some
fileanalysis. Think, don't be told. Huge difference.

RADAR EXCLUSIVE: UPDATE
Air America Stiffs Al Franken
THAT'S AL, FOLKS Franken wants a paycheck
Is Air America Radio going belly up? The troubled left-leaning network
is dismissing yesterday's report by Think Progress that it plans to
yourfor bankruptcy on Friday. But you know things must be bad when even
totop star can't get paid.
"I don't know if that's true or not," Al Franken told Radar late
Wednesday, when asked about the bankruptcy report. "We do know that
there have been cash-flow problems. I haven't been paid in a while.
Like, there's no cash flowing to me."
It's not the first time Franken has gone without a salary. Air America
ran out of money promptly after it launched in 2004, after disgraced
former chairman Evan Cohen inflated the amount of money he had raised
purportedlyfund the network. The debacle nearly killed the network in its infancy,
and led to a legendary incident in which Cohen reportedly sent an
executive to Franken's apartment to hand-deliver an envelope
http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2006/09/air-america-stiffs-franken.phpcontaining all of his back pay. It was empty.
for the rest go
Except that he just quoted the article, he didn't apply any "backwards
Might I suggest "forward reading"?
Might I suggest "critical thinking." Ken is easy bait for those wingnut
sites that tell half of a story so that they can manipulate the reader.
It's a pretty sly way of lying and slandering without actually breaking any
laws. "AL FRANKEN STIFFED - AA SUCKS ASS AND THIS IS PROOF" but of course
the article doesn't say that Al is not even asking for the money. See how
you have to go backwards to go forwards?
And I should take suggestions from a guy who gets confused over sarcastic
And no - I did not LITERALLY mean that I am hooking Ken's mouth with a fish
hook. OK? For your assignment, look up the words, analogy and euphemism.
I just wanted to clarify that so you don't accuse me of changing the subject
to bass fishing.
