Malkin, Maloney Continue Blowing Big Holes in Air America Scandal Defenses

Michelle Malkin and Brian Maloney continue to establish a high standard for investigative journalism in the Blogosphere as they expand their exclusive probe into the flaky financing behind Air America, the Talk Radio version of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest."

The bottom line is that virtually every claim of innocence by Air America personalities and officials has been exposed as dubious at best and outright lies at worst. Rather than me trying to describe what Maloney and Malkin have most recently revealed in their investigation, go here for the full report.

One additional observation: One of the most encouraging aspects of Maloney and Malkin's work is that it has no match on the Left side of the Blogosphere, at least none of which I aware. Yes, there is an abundance of bloviation, ranting and reasoned observation on the Left, just as there is on the Right side of the Blogosphere. But systematic investigative journalism is a rarity at most.

This needs to be changed, friends.
