    From the New York Times:
    CNN Drops to Last Place Among Cable News Networks - Media Decoder Blog - NYTimes.com
    That means revenue is down and going "downer". :lol:
    Look how the mighty have fallen. CNN can't even beat the Propaganda Arm of the DNC and White House! :lol:

    So maybe alienating half of your potential audience with rabid, far far far far Lunatic Fringe Leftist views is NOT a winning business model for a media company?

    Has Pinch at the NY Times heard about this?

    Having the best ratings does not mean you are the best news organization. It means that you are the most entertaining news organization and that people tune into you.
    Best selling books are not always the best books
    Best selling cars are not always the best cars
    McDonalds sells more food than anyone...it does not mean they are the best restaurant

    Poor CNN. ( note sarcasm )

    How low can you go?
    The lowest of the low ... the bottom of the barrel.

    Maybe they should think about reporting some important stories, instead of covering for the current administration by ignoring them. All I'm saying is, it's just a suggestion.

    Actually it looks like this may be a winning strategy, both on the left and right. Fox is dominant, and attracts a more right-wing audience. As I recall, MSNBC was always at or near the bottom before deciding to go more overtly after a left-wing audience. So it looks like having polarizing figures doing commentary on your news channel is good for ratings.

    The vast majority of Americans are so tired of listening to the wingnuts on both sides that the only ones left watching these news shows are the wingnuts themselves.
