Think Progress retracts claim that Air America would be filing bankruptcy

… and Al Franken blames the rumor on conservatives, even though it was the lefty blog Think Progress that broke the news to begin with ;)

Despite reports the liberal talk network would file for bankruptcy protection by week’s end – that apparently isn’t happening. Franken tells listeners “we’re not in Chapter 11” and pokes at conservative talk hosts and websites for getting it wrong with quips like “who’s gloating now Bill O’Reilly?” We still believe it’s a tough economic situation at the libnet – and several staffers have been laid-off.

Sounds like a roaring success story for liberal talk radio, eh?

I’m sure we can be expecting a story on this from the NYTimes any day now …
