Pacific NW Inlander's McGregor on Air America

Editor and publisher Ted S. McGregor, Jr., made an appearance this morning on the Al Franken Show, which was broadcast from the Inlander's hometown of Spokane, Wash. McGregor got a chuckle from the host, whose new book is called "The Truth (with jokes)," when he said his 13-year-old paper has proven that its readers want "the truth, with movie reviews."
