"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Dean on Majority Report tomorrow evening

posted by annatopia at Thursday, April 01, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
The Majority Report airs from 8pm-11pm EST on Air America radio. According to host Janeane Garafalo, Dean will join them on the air tomorrow night. The link above goes to the shiny new Air America website, which has literally transformed in the past twenty four hours. I hope you've been tuning in. I've been thoroughly enjoying it, and I'm sure that as the bugs are worked out, AA will become a great station. Majority Report is pretty hip. They've set up a blog and have promised to find a way to integrate the blog taffic into the on-air show. And according to the people hosting the Majority Report blog, the early ratings for Air America have literally broken records:

It's Brian from I Stand For, we're doing the AAR website.
We're so sorry things have been buggy, nobody could have anticipated the response we have received.
We've broken records people... We are Real Audio's #1 stream. We were at 50,000 streams during Al's show around 2:00 EST. We got 350,000 unique visitors from 8:00 last night to 2 this afternoon. That puts us on pace to be a top 50 site...on the entire web. We're talking Bank of America, Dell Computers numbers.
You guys are awesome, this is amazing and we're so proud to be a part of it.

Dean's name has come up on every single show on Air America. Randi Rhodes (who I'd say is the left's equivalent of Howard Stern - funny and aggressive) praised him today and tore up the mass media for pulling a character assassination job on us after Iowa. She also has a slips in a clip of the scream, and it's not mean-spirited at all. She's taking back the scream and making sure everyone knows exactly what happened to us. Majority Report and the OFranken Factor have both waxed nostalgic for the candidacy and praised Howard for kicking in the door so John Kerry could walk through it.

Thanks again, Air America. You're truly a breath of fresh air.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
