Will Al Franken work pro bono? – Franken has made millions from his books and personal appearances and the exposure of his Air America gig has only helped. But now, according to the Radio Equalizer, Air America must slash their budget or face cancellation by their Clear Channel parent. Will Franken give some back for the “cause”?:

[Randi] Rhodes and [Al] Franken provide particular challenges for any budget- cutter charged with making the company viable. Not only have they fought for incredibly high salaries and outrageous perks, but they've also successfully insisted on huge, contractually- mandated staffing levels for their shows.
I take that as a “no.” Looks like some low-level staffers will have to go.
