    They are number one for a reason. They are appealing to dumb (right winger) republican voters. Period. They are watching a station they know lies, yet they watch. Why do you think real republicans disassociate themselves with Beck, Hannity et al?


    They have a few million viewers, and this is impressive, but percentage wise, how will this effect the next election? HOw did it effect the last one?

    American idol have great ratings as well....Ratings does not equal quality. It represents a demographic that was tapped.

    Fox usual demographic is White, uneducated 60 year olds. (Look at the tea party audiances if you dont believe me). You CANNOT win an election with that demographic.

    Who said anything about winning an election? We're talking about a news channel here. One I don't personally watch, but it's a free country. And a free press.

    The demographic they are consistently winning is the most coveted 25-54 age group. If you have a credible source for your claims of "white, old and uneducated" please feel free to post it with a source link.

    He'd just rather spew partisan bullshit than facts.
