It seems we’re not the only ones monitoring the MSM’s near-total blackout of Air America’s financial shenanigans. New York Times ombudsman Byron Calame (public@nytimes.com) is “closely watching” the Air America story and how it is handled by the paper, according to an e-mail sent by Mr. Calame’s assistant to a Power Line reader.

Fortunately, plenty of others are covering the story while the Times twiddles its thumbs. The latest:

Investor’s Business Daily
Washington Times
New York Post
Power Line
Radio Blogger
Hugh Hewitt (Hugh’s new Daily Standard column is here).
Edward Morrissey
Rush Limbaugh
Austin Bay
Leon H. at Macho Nachos has a follow up on Air America and legal matters
Scrappleface spoofs: “Air America Hires Dan Rather as Scandal Spokesman”

The New York Sun’s David Lombino is undoubtedly digging further.

And, of course, Brian Maloney at the Radio Equalizer remains the first and last stop for news and analysis.

The conclusion of Hugh’s Daily Standard column today is worth repeating:

We know a lot about the medications Rush Limbaugh has taken.

We know a great deal about Bill O’Reilly’s troubles.

But thus far we don’t know much about how Al Franken got paid the big bucks last year, when all of the mainstream media seemed to be cheering his debut.

Last month, the Times’s executive editor, Bill Keller, trumpeted the newspaper’s new committment to “to stretch beyond our predominantly urban, culturally liberal orientation, to cover the full range of our national conversation.”

We’re waiting…
