Racism at Dead Air America?
Apparently they are still not on the air in Chicago and LA after the bounced check fiasco. So they put up their own "humorous" takeoff on the Drudge Report which they call the Sludge Report
. Gee, that's sooooo original!
Anyway, the piece is rather predictable, except when they get into talking about the owner of Multicultural Radio, the broadcasting company they are battling:
But Arthur Liu --- not funny. He lied to us, he ripped us off and now we’re chasing him down with a pipe wrench. It’s a metaphor.
(Brainster note: Apparently they are not aware of the meaning of "metaphor")
Here’s what really happened:
This Liu-ser was ripping off our boss Evan Cohen big time (he can’t do that, that’s our job). Evan found out about it and he stopped payment on a check to keep Liu-cifer from ripping him off even more. You can touch Evan for the occasional meal or drinks but a million bucks is crossing the line. And if we ever get low on cash, we can always call Barbra Streisand. Or any of the Baldwins. Except Stephen.
So we got screwed, Liu’d, and tattooed. How Liu can you get? In Liu of payment. Liu’d and lascivious behavior. These write themselves. What we’re getting at is that we hate him.
Now, isn't that cute? They're making puns on his Asian name.
So now everyone’s saying we’re going down the dumper in Chicago and Los Angeles, but what they don’t tell you is that we’re still on in Portland. And we OWN Portland. And let’s not forget Riverside and Plattsburgh. And New York. And streaming on the internet. And XM. And Sirius. Actually we’re fine.
Heh, who cares about LA and Chi-town, they've got Plattsburgh!
