    Yup.. Fox News is the favorite of Democrats according to Pew research...That's nice...

    --------------------------------------:eusa_eh:

    It's wildly counterintuitive, at least if you believe the chattering-class wisdom that only tea-party yahoos watch Fox News. But if a survey released Monday by the Pew Research Center for People and the Press is accurate, at any given moment there are more Democrats watching Fox News than MSNBC or CNN.

    According to Pew, 53 percent of MSNBC's viewers identify themselves as Democrats, compared to 47 percent at CNN and 21 percent at Fox News. Applying those percentages to the August Nielsen ratings, it means that the average number of Democrats watching Fox News is 214,200. MSNBC has 199,810 Democrats, and CNN 179,070.*

    Where do you get the number that represents the total number of Democrats watching the news?

    Fuck Fox.

    Fox-Cablevision dispute threatens MLB broadcasts - Yahoo! News
    Double the amount? Puleeze. Are times that tough for billionnaire Murdoch? Or have ratings gone to his head...someone needs to take a "survey" in about a few weeks which might include a few million pissed off baseball fans.

    Cablevision should dump FOX, much as I like NatGeo..it simply isn't worth all the other garbage.

    They pulled the same thing with Dish Network. Now I can't get FX which means I have to go online to find out what happened on Sons of Anarchy, and I was just starting to enjoy Terriers.

    So...where's all the FOX fans? Usually when the word FOX turns up in a new thread, ya'll swarm like Army Ants to defend your favorite news folks. Scratching your heads over whether or not you should risk saying you're pissed that you might not get the World Series on your cable network? Hey, I promise I won't hold it against you. :eusa_whistle:

    I don't like that their news channels went to court to establish a right to lie.

    That really sticks in my craw..big time.
