Diebold Election Systems, Inc. is currently facing fire on a number of fronts, particularly given recent action by the California Voting Systems and Procedures Panel which last week recommended, to the California Secretary of State, the decertification of the Diebold TSx touch screen machines used in California elections, as well as an Attorney General investigation into their criminal activities.
According to their website, "Air America Radio is . . . a new voice in talk radio: a smart voice with a sense of humor. It brings to the marketplace an unserved need. We give voice to what millions of Americans are thinking, but can't hear on radio. Until now!" The new radio network, broadcasting in nine states so far, as well as on both XM Satellite Radio - 167 and Sirius Satellite Radio - 125, can be heard on the internet at airamericaradio.com.
