The liberal-minded Air America radio network kicked off its programming at 6 a.m. Wednesday with the oddly familiar sounding Morning Sedition. Broadcast on six stations around the country — and on XM satellite radio — the new network features left-leaning celebrity hosts such as Al Franken (The O'Franken Factor) and Janeane Garofalo (The Majority Report). Cultural critic Joe Queenan joins NPR's Neal Conan and callers to discuss the launch of the radio network.
