Al Franken's Show Is Now 'The Al Franken Show'
Publish date:

"We have no longer linked our fate with the declining fortunes of Bill O'Reilly. We will not be dragged down with him."
That's a quote from a five-paragraph news release issued today (Tuesday) by Air America Radio's PR folks, announcing its headline show "The O'Franken Factor" is changing its name to "The Al Franken Show."
"No matter how hard we tried ... Bill O'Reilly wouldn't sue us," the statement put it. (It also stated - in jest, apparently - that the producers also considered naming the show "The O'Limbaugh Factor" or "The O'President Bush Factor.")
