Air America is being destroyed by US Corporations, including our own United States Postal Service

Here's the report, from FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting):

Air America is a network that will work, if enough businesses support its efforts. According to this report, 90 US Corporations have colluded to ensure that Air America will not be able to survive, by withholding their advertising dollars from stations that carry Air America.

As an employee of the United States Postal Service, I am outraged. This is a company who, in theory at least, serves the American people. If it can be proven that any government-owned company or agency is blacklisting Air America for reasons that are not legitimate, they must be exposed. I have a feeling that the Navy and the USPS advertise on stations that carry right-wing propaganda like Limbaugh, so this kind of blacklist simply must be a violation of law.

Get out there and research, and tell your legislators what you find. The toll-free number for the Capitol Switchboard (for now) is 1-800-862-5530

The United States Postal Service is not a tool of the religious right, and must not be allowed to become one.
